Publisher's Summary

In the fourth Widow’s Island novella by Wall Street Journal bestselling author Kendra Elliot, the truth of a twenty-year disappearance will finally come to light.

When the town drunk ends up dead in a hit-and-run, FBI special agent Cate Wilde expects that solving the case will be cut and dried. But evidence quickly surfaces that the victim was involved with another crime. A crime that has gone cold for twenty years. A crime of personal importance to Cate.

Cate’s best friend, Samantha, went missing at fourteen, leaving behind nothing except a jacket and an island full of unanswered questions. Samantha’s disappearance has haunted Cate for more than half her life, and she might finally be able to find some closure.

But not everything is as it seems. As Cate unravels what happened on that fateful day, she’ll discover that the community of Widow’s Island is full of secrets. Betrayed by someone she thought she knew, Cate will need to piece together the truth...before someone else gets hurt.

Kendra Elliot is a Great Authir

I love her books. Each I read/listen too is better than the last. The stories always have a lot of thrilling mysteries and endings I didn’t see coming! If you love mysteries you can’t go wrong with her books.

Suspenseful

This story answered a lot of questions that have been puzzling me throughout the first four novellas. It's a good one.

Bred in the Bone

Yes! This one makes reading the first three in the series just...well, you will find out. A hit and run accident takes the investigation in places that lead Tessa and Cate to a discovery that has been many years in the making.

Decent

The characters are the same throughout the series a little too many times. It almost feels like you're ready the same book in the beginning of each of the books. The scene is the same. The island is the setting I get that, it is des driving the island and the characters over and over. Needs to be raised to an adult level reading.

Loved the setting!

I thoroughly enjoyed this series, I was hooked from the first book. I was disappointed when I realized I had read the last book in the series.

childish

This book was such a disappointment. The author doesn't think the reader can keep up and so repeats each point. There is no real content. It would have been better and just as informative as a news article.

    5 out of 5 stars

Great series!

Loved all the books...just wished they were longer. Looking forward to the new ones that are being written.

Twenty Year Mystery Unearthed

This fourth in the series is a hair-raising thriller. I hadn’t listened to/read the first three yet, and some of the language almost put me off continuing. But I’m glad I continued. The needless cursing added nothing to the story, and it was right at the beginning. However, the mystery was a very good one, and I’m really glad that I stuck with it. FBI special agent Cate Wilde is back at Widow’s Island and investigating the disappearance of her friend that happened twenty years ago. Nothing is as it seems. Excellent story and resolution, and I am definitely going back for the first three in the series.
