Publisher's Summary

One rainy night in the woods outside of Portland, Dr. Victoria Peres is called to the site of a strange and 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. Stranger still, the crime is an exact replica of a decades-old cold case.

Things only get more complicated when Medical Examiner Seth Rutledge, Victoria’s first love, arrives on the scene. The timing couldn’t be worse for Victoria, who faces the case of her life and a killer determined to destroy her. 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.

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.

Uninterested story

I tried to enjoy Alone but I thought the story boring and predictable. The ending felt rushed wrapping up in essentially two chapters. You would expect to hear back from certain characters that never happened. I had to force myself to finish this book. It's about bad parenting with men are evil tropes. There were characters I wanted to hear more about that was never concluded. The famous Michael Brody popped up here and there but left suddenly. This is getting long, bottom line Alone's story is lazy and boring with great narration.

Alone

This one was good but not as good as the last one. I am enjoying this series in audio while busy packing my house for a move. Dr. Victoria Perez is a forensic anthropologist for the Portland ME office and while out to a scene of young women, girls actually, who are posed. The newest recruit for to replace Dr. Campbell, the retiring ME, Dr. Seth Rutledge shows up and it is a blast to the past, their past. Now she not only is trying to help solve this mystery but also one from years ago that was similar and Seth is trying to reignite their past and bring it into the present. Twists and turns and chemistry abounds to keep this one moving.
