    When I saw six months pregnant female lead and police procedural I knew this book was for me Minotaur Books has published some seriously uniue concepts in the past few years; another favorite series of mine that they produced is the Brigid uinn novels by Becky Masterman featuring a female in a mature stage of life after retiring from the FBI Since I love those books so much I figured it was a safe bet that this new series would be for me While it too me about 50 pages to really get absorbed in the story I appreciate the author's dedication to setting up the characters and detailing little snippets that would come back later in the story for big ah ha moments If you have always liked the idea of reading a Karin Slaughter book but find the graphic violence just too much this might be the perfect read for you The writing style and detailing is very similar and while there is some violence its much tame and muted and limited only to necessary scenes instead of the gratuitous 400 pages of blood and guts you'd find elsewhere For those who love the nasty darkness though fear not; don't mistake the lack of constant gory violence for boring This book was heavy on the police procedural with scenes chucked in of hold your breath suspense OMG the bathroom scene in the middle of the night? John please don't ever travel again I always like a series that has some aspects of continuation throughout the books with individual plots as well and this was no different I'm not 100% sure how the author will choose to press on but she gave great closure to the case pertaining to this book and even to many aspects of Gemma's life If I didn't know this was a series I might have thought this was a standalone However knowing it is a series has me looking back at smaller details thinking Oh yeah she could definitely go somewhere with this I'm really excited to see where Finn and Gemma's partnership goes and I'm hoping we get to see how Sam is doing as well I'm still iffy on Brody but we'll see if he can win me over in the future The individual mystery I felt was good; while it was pretty standard and straight forward it wasn't simple The author put a good deal of careful consideration and detail into tying multiple people in different places together to bring a cold case and recent murder into the limelight in similar timing I can only imagine how difficult it was to get everything just right and have nothing slip through the cracks and contradicting; the author did a fantastic job of lining it all up and clearly did great research into making everything as believable as possible I'm really excited to see where this series goes; it has 5 star potential in my book Greatest of thanks to Minotaur Books for my copies in exchange for an honest review In addition to my review copy they sent a finished copy that you can enter to win on my blog next weekI couldn't find a place to add this where it flowed well but wanted to mention I loved reading about the circus and all that goes into making those performances happen

    I received a copy of Inherit the Bones through NetGalley for an honest review My thanks to Minotaur Books and to Emily Littlejohn for the opportunityIn my dreams the dead can speakAnd these dreams are turning into horrendous nightmares for Lead Detective Gemma Monroe Cedar Valley Colorado was once a small ski town dotted with chalets and nestled inocently into the rugged terrain of the Rockies Daydreaming was uite the pasttime amid all this beauty until the bodies of two young boys were found along a secluded hiking trail in 1985 Some say it was the evil work of the Woodsman who overpowered those helpless boys Some say that he's been waiting patiently to strike againEmily Littlejohn creates her character of Detective Gemma Monroe as a sharp minded very pregnant young woman with a voracious appetite She reminds me a bit of the female detective in Fargo You okay down dere Marge? Only Gemma goes it alone while her boyfriend works as a contract geologist in Alaska No safety nets for Gemma She'll attack an investigation like a double cheese ham on ryeBut Gemma had no expectations of a murder on her multiple listed menu A frantic call comes in reporting that a brutalized body of a clown has been found in a back tent on the local fairgrounds Finding a motive and means will perplex Gemma and her partners Finn and Sam And the medical examiner will have a shocking detail in his reportLittlejohn does a fine job in the setup for the story giving just enough background details to whet your whistle She weaves through this storyline with ribbons of uirky humor sharp dialogue and very human characterizations There's also the electric spark of the thrill as someone sets their focus on our pizza craving pregnant police officerInherit the Bones has all the makings of a well defined series It's the type of storyline that pulls you into its magnetic field when you're simply on the lookout for a good satisfying read It is my hope that Emily Littlejohn will once again band this troup of characters into another Gemma Monroe mystery

    The coincidences of life scary clowns have been all over our news stations lately so I was surprised to find when I started reading this that the case begins with the death of a carnival clown Only this is not just any clown this is a young man who has been thought dead for the last three yearsSo enter Gemma a young very pregnant detective and she soon ties together this case with the death of two young boys from past years Has dreams about it Gemma herself is an appealing character feisty committed refuses to give up her theories despite conflicting views Finn her partner for this case at least was harder to like but he grew on me A good start to a new series first novel by this author I believe and it is an evenly paced very well written police procedural Looking forward to seeing how she develops Gemma's character and wonder how her relationship problems work out will wait and seeARC from Netgalley

    Save your time and read something elseThe gaps in facts and logic the misdirections never explained the MC's obsession with a past infidelity of an absent baby daddy the failure to interview than three circus employees when a murder of a circus employee occurs on circus grounds plus the pedestrian writing All added up to an annoying forgettable I hope readview spoilerLittlejohn never explains how the culprit was able to get upstairs to Gemma's bathroom in the dark write neatly with lipstick on Gemma's mirror again in the dark and escape the residence in the period of time that the lights were out In a small town between 6 and 8 pm no one witnesses the culprit slashing not one not two but four tires on Gemma's car The reused lights out gimmick in the library is for what purpose? How does the culprit get in and out of a secured basement in the library with no one seeing her? How exactly did that incident advance her goal? Why other than to set up a scene where multiple characters tell us the author's explanation for the various murders does Gemma go to the home of the killer having identified the killer at that point alone eg without her partner? She isn't going to arrest her; she won't kill her She didn't Mirandize her so nothing said in that kitchen is admissible hide spoiler

    In Emily Littlejohn's debt novel we are introduced to Gemma Monroe a pregnant police detective A clown with a traveling circus that has stopped in Gemma's Colorado mountain town turns up dead This death unleashes Gemma's nightmare's about the bones she found of two boys who died over thirty years ago how does the death of the clown tie to what Gemma found three years ago? Gemma's dogged persistence makes for a well tuned police procedural The book is well written and plotted there is an ease between the characters that works well I look forward to her second novel A Season to Lie due out later this year This review was originally posted on The Pfaeffle Journal

    Gemma Monroe is a detective in Cedar Valley CO She's six months pregnant and stressing over her relationship with the baby's father Her life gets a lot complicated when a traveling circus comes to town and one of their workers is murdered The killing reveals some dark secrets related to a 30 year old cold case Gemma will discover that digging for the truth when it means revealing past dark deeds can be very very dangerousI really like this series I accidentally jumped in at book three Lost Lake a few months ago and finally backtracked to read the first book I like Gemma Monroe as a main character She is very good at her job She's intelligent thorough ethical and determined but being driven comes with a price The unsolved murders of two young boys in 1985 haunts her She has nightmares about the dead boys Her determination to solve the case and get justice for the victims almost breaks her at times The mystery moves at a nice pace with plenty of suspense I figured out some of the clues but the ending surprised me I love it when a book holds a few surprises back until the very end Nicely done I'm glad I finally jumped back to re start this series at the beginning It isn't necessary to read the books in order but I do understand the characters especially Gemma a lot better now that I've read the first book There are three books in this series with a fourth book Shatter the Night coming out in December 2019 I can't wait For now I'm moving on to the second book A Season to Lie

    Inherit the Bones is a riveting and beautifully written police procedural Gemma Monroe is a young pregnant deputy with a partner she doesn’t trust and nightmares from her discovery of the bones of two missing children who were murdered 30 years previously When a circus comes to the small Colorado ski town and a clown is savagely killed she has no idea that investigating his death is going to intensify her nightmares and uncover 30 years of lies and deceit Twist and turns make this compelling story difficult to put down Can’t wait for Littlejohn’s next book

    You can read all of my reviews at LitWitWineDineI've always thought there are currents running through our world and our lives threads if you will that touch and connect all things Events years after they've happened leave faint fingerprints that linger and change the surface of places over timeA murdered clown An unknown murder weapon A surprise ID A pregnant lead investigator Her partner with uestionable professional ethics A wealthy family with generations of secrets Murders that have gone unsolved for forty yearsWHAT MORE COULD YOU ASK FOR?? Inherit the Bones is a well paced police procedural It has just enough twists and turns to keep the pages turning without making one's head spin too much I really enjoyed the introduction to Gemma Monroe She's uite likable Emily Littlejohn did a great job in rendering her as a well balanced character She's tough enough to thrive in a male dominated profession She's compassionate enough to comfort grieving families Most importantly she's a competent fully invested cop who's going to making sure the perpetrators get what they've got coming to themThe scene of the crime is a traveling circus The murder weapon could not be immediately determined This was certainly interesting than the cliché partially clad strangled body hidden in the woods not far from the roadside to be discovered by a manwoman walking a dog As for the rest of the details of the crime I don't do spoilers and I'm afraid discussing the other characters or details in any greater length may prematurely influence the prospective reader I'll say only that there were plenty of suspects and the identity of the murderer was not readily apparentThe secondary story in this book is Gemma's relationship with her boyfriend Brody He's a scientist who is absent through most of the story He's in Alaska for work where he may or may not be cavorting with some slut a woman with whom he had previously had an affair I must admit I didn't really care for him and was sort of hoping she was going to dump him halfway through the book Which leads me to this Inherit the Bones needs a seuel I'm not sure how it should be done A new crime in Cedar Valley? A relocation? Gemma is recruited by the FBI? I'll leave that part to Emily Littlejohn I just want to read itMany thanks to Minotaur Books for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

    Full review on wwwnovelgossipcomThis is the second really good mystery debut that I’ve read this week I would say I’m on uite a roll When Chelsea at The Suspense Is Thrilling Me talked of a similar feel to a Karin Slaughter book in her review of this one I was intrigued I can definitely see why she felt this way as I could feel a similar vibe there just wasn’t uite as much violence and gore here I felt the need to mention this straightaway as I know I have some readers who don’t like that type of stuff and I think this one would be a better fit than some of the darker books I read You guys just aren’t as sick and twisted as me
