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.

Disappointing. Skip

I was excited about Victoria’s story as I always thought she was an interesting character that I wanted to know more about. This book however, was extremely disappointing and took away a lot of what made her a strong character in the previous books.

The thing that bugged me the most was her relationship with Seth. I thought what he did in the past was pretty unforgivable and I hate how easily Victoria just forgave him. It made her seem weak and completely dependent on a man for happiness. It’s as if she had just been waiting for 20 years for him to change his mind and suddenly want her again. I also hate how the book presents Seth as having done the right thing in the past. He did it out of some backward sense of honor and altruism and honestly it probably caused more harm then good for his wife and daughter. I think it’s better for a child to grow up with two separated parents rather than in a house with two parents but no love. It messes the child up and gives them backwards views on love and marriage. Additionally, Seth literally didn’t do anything to win Victoria back. He just said he wanted her now and she ran back into his arms. Also, the romance was boring. We were just told they were in love but never actually shown anything that confirmed this love. In fact, they barely had any scenes together.

As for the murder aspect, It was also kind of boring. It had potential I guess but it felt very anticlimactic and surface level. It wasn’t really a mystery and the author really didn’t go into much depth on it. There were some murders. They caught the killer. Not much else was really explained.

Overall, this whole book felt very shallow. No depth to the characters or mystery. Things were mentioned but never really shown or explained that deeply.

Honestly, you can skip this one in the series. It adds nothing.

Putting the past to rest

Victoria has a tough road putting to rest both the new and old murders. I loved that we got more background on her and that this time she could count on Seth to stand with her as they both faced the past.
