TitleBones to Ashes
AuthorKathy Reichs
ReviewThis is my first novel by Kathy Reichs. As a big fan of the TV show I expected there to be differences, but there really isn't any correlation between the books and TV. This Tempe is older, more socially adept, has an ex-husband and a kid sister. Not that this is necessarily a problem.

The book on the surface is a quick read (took me a day), the science is interesting and it's fun to read. I enjoyed the history of the region, the story (for the most part) was interesting, if gruesome.

However, I had a major issue with one aspect of the storyline that ruined it for me. The whole story with the missing friend was far too contrived and unbelievable.

Shame really.

SummaryTemperance Brennan, like her creator Kathy Reichs, is a brilliant, sexy forensic anthropologist, called on to solve the toughest cases. But for Tempe, the discovery of a young girl's skeleton in Acadia, Canada, is more than just another assignment. Evangeline, Tempe's childhood best friend, was also from Acadia. Named for the character in the Longfellow poem, Evangeline was the most exotic person in Tempe's eight-year old world. When Evangeline disappeared, Tempe was warned not to search for her, that the girl was "dangerous." Thirty years later, flooded with memories, Tempe cannot help wondering if this skeleton could be the friend she lost so many years ago. Meanwhile, Tempe's beau, Ryan, investigates a series of cold cases. Two girls dead. Three missing. Could the New Brunswick skeleton be part of the pattern? As Tempe draws on the latest advances in forensic anthropology to penetrate the past, Ryan hunts down a serial predator.
