Book Review: The Dead and the Buried by Kim Harrington
And then I hit bottom.
The alternating format gives readers a huge chill and enormous insight into Kayla’s character and the possible motives behind each suspect, while Jade races to find out who the killer is before anything worse happens to her family. The tension between her stepmother and Jade is extremely believable, and hits just the right note, as does the building of suspicions between suspects. Will keep you on edge, but do NOT skip to the end of the book, no matter HOW MUCH you might be tempted!!!! A good pair with Anna Dressed In Blood, although not nearly as much gore, and will go over well with those who like Kimberly Derting (Body Finder series). 4 out of 5 stars.
