Publisher's Summary

An RT Reviewers’ Choice Award Finalist, Romantic Suspense.

Alone is the fourth book in Bone Secrets, the multimillion-copy bestselling series.

One rainy night in the woods outside of Portland, Dr. Victoria Peres is called to the site of a haunting crime scene. Six beautiful young girls - all in white dresses and arranged in a perfect circle - have been left for dead. Only one girl, fighting for her life at a nearby hospital, has survived the carnage. Things get stranger still when Victoria and the police discover that the disturbing arrangement of the bodies - as meticulous as it is mysterious - is straight from the pages of a decades-old cold case. Victoria is called on to do what she does best, read the bones of the dead for clues...while dealing with the surprise return of her first love, medical examiner Seth Rutledge. Only this time she must figure out how the two cases, fifty years apart, are connected.

In the fourth book in her heart-pounding Bone Secrets series, bestselling author Kendra Elliot sends listeners on a dark and thrilling journey as forensic anthropologist Victoria Peres races to solve a horrific new case while confronting the secrets of her past.

Kendra Elliot Keeps Delivering

I absolutely love how she ties all her characters and their various professions into cohesive yet unique stories. The stories just keep getting better and better and you end up caring deeply about the characters. More audible books please!

Awful performer

Terrible inflection. Do authors not approve the performers? She had such great ones on the previous books in the series.

More bone secrets in Oregon

Alone is a very typical Kendra Elliot mystery. It's an excellent story that's a combination of science and relationships. Neither mystery nor suspense are particularly strong. Alone is not a romance novel but it could be considered chick lit. Tanya Eby's narration is excellent.

Narrator's Chronic Mispronunciation Distracts

Would you try another book from Kendra Elliot and/or Tanya Eby?

Yes. I like the sound of Tanya Eby's voice, but I found her mispronunciations (the main character's last name, along with many other instances) of simple words extremely distracting.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I was actually a tad surprised at the twist!

Could you see Alone being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No.

Any additional comments?

The dialogue is a bit hokey.

Fabulous narration for a GREAT story!

This was a total WIN for me for on both the story front and the narration. Tanya Eby is a fabulous narrator ~ I wish she'd done this whole series! There have been 4 stories in this series so far ~ Chilled, Hidden, Buried and Alone ~ and all 4 have had different narrators. That pretty much drives me crazy, lol, as we see cross over characters.

Dr. Victoria Peres is a forensic bone Doc ~ she's with the medical examiner when he's called out late to a chilling scene where 5 girls are dead, and 1 barely clings to life. She's appalled ~ and surprised when the first love her life shows up on scene, Seth Rutledge. She's surprised to find that he's trying for her retiring boss's job...and that he's going through a divorce fromt he woman he'd left her for so many years ago.

The detail of the crimes in Ms. Elliot's books are eerily real to read about ~ and her characterization is so life like you KNOW the people you're reading about. I loved the interaction between Seth and Victoria ~ it was believable and had you rooting for Seth, who'd done what he thought was the only right thing there was to do, and Victoria who's guard has never quite went down since their relationship was over.

Ms. Elliot threw a few red herrings in there to fool me and make me think I knew whodunnit ~ and even when you DID know who it was to doubt it, lol.

Just an all around fabulous listen I'd recommend to any suspense fans!!

Just OK

The love story and mystery/suspense wasn't as good as the first and third novel in the series.

Great

Great action and so thrilling. The plot really pulls you in and keeps you on the edge of your seat. Enjoyed the characters. The narrator really brought this story to life. I recommend it.

Twisted. Tender.

Another well written story in this saga, this time featuring the enigmatic Dr. Victoria Peres. She's the one that most everyone sees as standoffish, an Ice Princess, or worse. Although they all agree she's outstanding at her job, it's just her personality that's lacking. In this installment we find out there's so much more to her than almost anyone knows (Dragon Boats? how awesome is that!) She is complex, dedicated, and a woman with more of a past than her co-workers had any clue of. Until now.

Seamlessly interwoven through Victoria's personal tale is a purely horrifying forensic mystery with a murky past. This story has basically everything a reader could hope for: suspense, chills, great characters, break-neck plot, and a fate-kissed romance.

Solid Dispensable romance

Once again Kendra Elliot creates a very good book. This book is really a 4.5 star book. I took a star off 1/2 star only because It dragged out approximately 3/4 of the way the story.. The ending was very good with an HEA.
