Review: Walking on Her Grave (Rogue River #4) by Melinda Leigh

The electrifying conclusion of the romantic suspense novella series from Melinda Leigh and Kendra Elliot.

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.

Explosive and exciting to the last page, Walking on Her Grave is the fourth and final thrilling addition to the new romantic suspense series from Melinda Leigh and Kendra Elliot.

Stars: four-half-stars

This was an interesting saga made even more so by being written by two different authors.  I really liked how their different voices lent authenticity to the story.  Each author had a different sister and the differences in the authors added to the differences in the sisters.  Definitely two different people with different outlooks on life, in spite of being sisters.  It was that much more believable.

But, on the other hand, they worked very well together to construct a most exciting crime drama that flowed well to the conclusion.  Plenty of twists and turns to keep one guessing.  Getting to the “who done it” in this episode was breath taking.  I had my suspicions, but really?

The poor heroes.  All worried about their women being involved in potentially dangerous jobs – Stevie is a cop and Carly is a child advocate for the Social Services.  *shakes head* No consideration that their women may feel the same –both guys are cops and they seem to get almost killed on a regular basis.  If not for the women saving their butts . . . *grins*

Enough of the potential spoilers.  I liked these characters.  They were real with real problems and complaints.   The couples argued and fought and compromised and worked it out.  It was fun reading about each one.

Now my question is, what about the Taylor brothers?  Will they get a series of books too?
