About the Book
Title: Like Honey for the Bones
Author: Brandy Heineman
Publisher: Independently Published
Release Date: July 24, 2023
Genre: Christian Split-time Romantic Mystery
TWO HEARTS BROKEN ALONG THE SAME JAGGED EDGE MAKE A GRISLY DISCOVERY DEEP IN THE SHENANDOAH VALLEY
Present Day. Solveig Borja fled Virginia to escape the guilt of one reckless night, and once she settles the family estate, she’s Norway-bound and never looking back. Meanwhile, Kyle Benton has come seeking asylum from past sins—which Solveig shatters even as their hopeless romance blooms. But when they discover a skeleton at Rice Caverns, its century-old mystery holds startling links to the here-and-now.
1919. The Great War is won. Gussie Rice longs for her beau's return from France, until she learns he’s confined at a stateside hospital and her closest confidant is part of the secret. Her bid for love sparks a confrontation that ricochets through time...
Bad blood and escalating threats swirl around Solveig, and Kyle’s new life proves no haven from the old with his brother's killer trolling the shadows. As the past rears up, the cavern’s hidden places beckon with power to light their hope or to swallow them in utter darkness.
My thoughts: This story has a lot going on, since we are imminently thrown in the middle of things with Solveig home to bury her Grandfather. Things take an odd turn on the way to the funeral, and things get even weirder when her Grandfather's house is vandalized. As she is thrown into contact with Kyle, a young man who has secrets of his own, the two of them must solve a mystery.
I have to admit, I felt a little lost at times, since both of the characters have their secrets and the reader isn't privy to them, making me feel left in the dark for longer than I would have liked. The characters are interesting, with a lot of baggage to work through, all while solving a mystery. There is a lot going on in this story!
I received this book from Just Read. This is my honest review.
