Jennifer Graeser Dornbush – Secret Remains


A cold-case murder, a grisly discovery, and a vipers nest of resentment, betrayal, and dirty secrets converge in this mystery perfect for fans of Kathy Reichs and Jayne Ann Krentz.

Its been 12 years since Sandi Parkman went missing after being dropped off at home by her schoolmate, Nick Larson, now the Sheriff of Freeport, Michigan. When a construction crew unearths Sandis bones – along with Nicks letterman jacket and one of his hairs – Nick becomes suspect number one in the murder.

Dr. Emily Hartford, the daughter of Freeports medical examiner, is called in to investigate, but the case is about to get personal. Nick was Emilys high school love, and now she has to either clear his name – or contend that hes the killer. As she delves into the case, a host of other suspects emerge: a coterie of Nicks jock friends from high school; Sandis sister, Tiffani, now a dancer at a local strip club; and James VanDerMuellen, a trust funder who recently returned to Freeport.

As the autumn skies darken over Freeport and the holiday season looms, Emily must sift through more than Sandis brittle bones to solve the case. Can she exonerate Nick – and rekindle their long-smoldering romance? The race is on to find the truth.

I couldnt stop. Finished the book in three days. Even though it had been a while since the last book; it picked up right where it left off. Falling in love with Emily, Freeports Sheriff Nick, and the local FBI legend was all too easy. Just enough mystery and action. I need book three to come out way sooner than this one did!!
