It’s time I make this webpage about more than just digital work, and actually use it. So, I decided I’m going to try and write some book reviews as I read this year! The first book I have read, and will review, is “Bone Music” by Christopher Rice. This is a 455 page book, and I can honestly say, it didn’t feel like it was that long at all!
I have seen this book in my searches on Amazon Kindle Unlimited a lot, but never stopped to read it until I saw one of my favorite authors, Lori Foster, recommend it. So, I decided to give it a try, and I’m actually glad I did!
“Bone Music” as a suspenseful thriller about a lady (Charlotte Rowe) who was kidnapped by a serial killer couple when she was a baby. They murdered her mom and then realized she was in the back seat so they took her. They raised her for 7 or 8 years, and it’s about her life as an adult. You learn what she went through kind of at the hands of the serial killers, and then at the hands of her dad who used her story to make him money. The only person Charlotte could count on growing up was her grandmother.
As we learn of Charlotte’s story, we learn about how she becomes a pretty reclusive, insecure woman who lives alone pretty much in the middle of nowhere. She is dragged into the middle of a new pharmaceutical drug by someone she felt she trusted, and the story goes from there. You learn about strengths she gets from the drug, and strengths she already has but been afraid to see she possesses. You watch her grow, while realizing she needs relationships in her life. She decides to take advantage of the drug and use it for what she wants to accomplish, and not just letting others use her.
I enjoyed the book because it has humor (if a book can make me laugh out loud, I usually really enjoy it), strong female role (even if it takes her a little bit to realize she is strong), good strong supporting characters, and a struggle between right and wrong. The characters in this book are well developed and I love how they can point out their own weaknesses, and feel all kinds of emotions through them. I love the ups and downs of each character, and how you get a feel for them early on but they grow throughout the book too. It kept me enthralled through the whole thing, I can’t wait to start book 2!
I give this book (5 / 5) !
