Review: Walking on Her Grave by Melinda Leigh

Title: Walking on Her Grave
Series: Rogue River
Author: Melinda Leigh
Read copy: eBook (Kindle)
Published: November 18, 2014
Publisher: Montlake Romance

The sleepy town of Solitude, Oregon, has turned into ground zero for a turf war between the manufacturers and distributors of a lethal new drug. When a teenage witness disappears, social worker Carly Taylor must find him before he’s silenced permanently.

Rogue County investigator Seth Harding wants to keep Carly, his estranged wife, out of harm’s way, but she refuses to let his concern keep her from doing her job. When one of her young charges vanishes, Carly gets pulled even deeper into the deadly case, and Seth knows he must help her…even if it leads them right into the criminals’ crosshairs.

My rating:

***ARC provided by publisher through NetGalley***

No surprises there. At least not for me. The heroine still got on my nerves, the hero was still bland...And the big surprising twist in the end wasn't neither big nor surprising.

That's it? That's why you had to drag the story through four installments? You could've just written one novella and be done with it. But no, we had to have family drama, uneventful narrative passages, murder scenes gone stale after the first good novella in the series...

After that first story I was really excited where the plot would go until the end of the series. But it had quickly taken a turn to Predictable Road and went down the Blah Cliff. Oh, well.
