This was one of the best books by this author I've read so far. Twenty years prior, a school bus full of private school children disappeared, along with the driver. A few years later, one child walked out of the woods, but has no memory of what happened.

The discovery of children's skeletons re-opens the case, and the grief. Forensic odontologist Lacy Campbell works with the ME, but the real 'star' of this novel is Michael Brody, a reporter we met in 'Hidden' (first book of the series). Michael's brother was one of the children who disappeared with the bus.

Yes, there's romance, but the main focus is on the search for a missing skeleton and the bad guy. Kendra Elliot did an excellent job of maintaining the suspense and throwing a few curves along the way :)

I may just 'borrow' 3.5 (Veiled - a Short Story) - 69 pages for $1.99 meh. but have already bought #4, Alone.

Listened to this one again on a road trip - just as good the second time around ( )

Buried
4 Stars

Twenty years after the disappearance of a school bus, the remains of the children are discovered buried in a field. As the brother of the only victim still missing, journalist Michael Brody attempts to locate the sole survivor, Chris Jacobs, who has gone off the grid. Michael contacts the man's sister, Jamie, but as the two race to find Chris, someone else is searching as well, and will stop at nothing to silence the only witness to the truth.

Series note: This book #3 in the Bone Secrets series, but can easily be read as a standalone as there is no ongoing story arc.

A good police procedural with a well-plotted story and a satisfying romance.

This case is simply horrific as the primary villain is seriously twisted and sick. The secondary villain is rather obvious, and the motive has insufficient foundation within the plot. That said, there is an excellent twist toward the end that I didn't see coming (kudos to Elliot!), and the final showdown is intense and exciting although the last chapter is contrived with everything tied up a little too neatly and conveniently.

Michael and Jamie are both appealing characters with a fantastic dynamic. Their attraction and the development of their relationship is believable despite the conflict between them.

In sum, while some of the plot points require a healthy suspension of disbelief, there is a good balance between the romance and the suspense, and the book is entertaining. Looking forward to the next installment.

Kendra Elliot has written her best book to date and show’s why this series is called bone secrets.

Twenty years ago a school bus with nine children and the driver just vanished. Two years later one survivor walked out of the Cascade Mountains with no memory and near death.

Now it is eighteen years later and a grisly discovery has been made. They have found the mass grave of the children and others that were not on the bus but one child is still unaccounted for, that is our hero Michael Brody’s brother.

Fans of the series will remember Michael from the first book as the intense reporter ex-boyfriend of forensic odontologist Lacey Campbell. He is just as intense in this book in his quest to find out what happened to his brother and why his bones are not with the others. This quest leads him to the sister of the lone survivor who he now desperately wants to talk to. But Chris Jacobs has been in hiding and no one knows where he is. Jamie Jacobs is a principal and needs to have order in her life since her brothers abduction and return. She can’t just up and leave at the spur of the moment even if it is to help find her brother. That is, until she is attacked by why looks to be the man that tortured her brother all those years ago.

Mason Callahan and Ray Lusco with the Oregon State Police Major crimes are also back in this book and these two are such a hoot together.

This was a heartbreaking tale especially since it dealt with children. The author did a fantastic job of taking us through the discovery, the ME reports and the investigation on who had done this and a few other big twist that lead up to a shocking ending.

Buried, book 3 in the Bone Secrets series, was an entertaining read--a good mystery mixed with a decent romance. I'll admit it--though I did enjoy Mike and Jamie's romance, I really read this one to find out more about Jamie's brother Chris. He's the hero of book 5 (Known), and his backstory is...well, it's pretty darn complicated.

Though one probably should read this book first to get the most impact, I managed to read Known before Buried. As a result, I already knew one of this novel's biggest secrets, but I was okay with that. It allowed me to read this one with an eye to looking for clues from the author to see how she would manage to keep readers guessing...or if she'd spill the beans too early. Fortunately, she did a great job of not giving too much away while cleverly managing to conceal the truth from readers. I actually ended up cleaning way more of my house than I'd been planning to this weekend, just so I had an excuse to keep listening to the audiobook!
