Field of Bones by @JAJance #Book #Review

Sheriff Joanna Brady’s best intentions to stay on maternity leave take a hit when a serial homicide case rocks Cochise County, dragging her into a far-reaching investigation to bring down a relentless killer in this chilling tale of suspense from New York Times bestselling author J. A. Jance.

This time Sheriff Joanna Brady may expect to see her maternity leave through to completion, but the world has other plans when a serial homicide case surfaces in her beloved Cochise County. Rather than staying home with her newborn and losing herself in the cold cases to be found in her father’s long unread diaries, Joanna instead finds herself overseeing a complex investigation involving multiple jurisdictions.

Filled with the beloved characters, small town charm, vivid history, intriguing mystery, and the scenic Arizona desert backdrop that have made the Joanna Brady series perennial bestsellers, this latest entry featuring the popular sheriff is sure to please J. A. Jance’s legion of fans.

My Review:
 A teenage boy caught with a human skull found in a clearing is the introduction to another intriguing mystery in the Joanna Brady series.  This time Sheriff Brady is on maternity leave and as she juggles life and assists her temporary Sheriff with the case, she begins to realize that she misses investigating.  As they close in on the killer, he makes one huge mistake that changes his fate forever.

This was an exciting mystery that had me looking behind my back!  I cheered along with the officers when they made a break in the case.  It's an action packed crime mystery everyone will love.

My Review: 

As a newly engaged couple, I started this bible study with an extremely open mind.  I also invited my fiancĂ© to set aside a time when we could read it together.  To my surprise, he agreed and was shocked by how much we both learned by taking a little time every day in devotion.  Thanks to Joel and Victoria we have learned to be the people that the Bible says that we are.  To be the strength in each others weakness and that alone has brought us closer together.  You would be surprised how much more in love we've become and how much more we appreciate each other.  This is a fantastic book for busy couples, each day is short yet in depth enough to give us something to think on during our day.
