  • Carrie
    Bones Don’t Lie by Melinda Leigh is the third installment of the Morgan Dane series. The series is probably best classified as romantic suspense as the main characters are slowly forming a romantic connection but the books focus way more on the thrills and suspense and are not full of the steamy moments known in that genre but a cleaner read.Each book in the series has featured a new case for the main characters to become involved in investigat...

    Well thank the heavens. This book actually satisfied my reading palette. It wasn’t as predictable as I expected it to be. Though I figured it out, I didn’t right away. Kudos. I like Morgan and Lance and look forward to more of their adventures. Though I miss Mack’s brother. I loved him the best. This isn’t a sexy times book and honestly I don’t mind one bit. Give me plot and adventure over smut any day. Though smut done well with an exc...

    Wow. I love this series! Lance Kruger has been haunted by the disappearance of his father 23 years ago when he was only 10. His mom has mental health issues and he’s been protecting and taking care of her since then. Lance is such a solid guy. He’s a hottie, physically fit, reliable, loyal, caring, big hearted, sincere, yet also has a slight touch of the alpha protective male. Lincoln Sharp, Lance’s current partner in a PI firm, was the cop...

  • Dísir
    Melinda Leigh’s 'Morgan Dane' books are always gripping and suspenseful, locking you down with a twisty case and protagonists who work together so well that you can’t help but love them. I’ve enjoyed every one of those as much as I loved Morgan and Lance, and Leigh certainly doesn’t disappoint with ‘Bones Don’t Lie’, with a case that strikes too close to home for Lance.Every time I think Leigh can’t do any better, she manages to s...

    Whew boy! Bones Don't Lie was one heck of a read as Lance's past is brought front and center with the discovery of a vehicle that's been sitting in a lake for 20 years. The Gist: Lance's father disappeared decades earlier without a trace. Until now. His vehicle has been found in a lake and holds even more questions than answers. And might very well put Morgan and Lance in danger. I continue to enjoy Morgan and Lance. They just fit as a couple. It...

    I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.An old car dredged from a lake digs up an old case and fresh pain for private investigator Lance Kruger. It's his father's car and it has bones in the boot.  Lance always knew that when his dad went out to the grocery store when he was a child but never came back that something terrible happened t...
  • Mary M
    Meh or lessAmazon gives no clue that this is a romance novel. It is listed under mysteries. I don’t read romance novels because, obviously, I don’t like them. This one is probably no worse than many of them but it is a very poor excuse for a mystery/thriller. Very politically correct-everyone eating protein bars and drinking green smoothies when they aren’t explaining to each other how in love they are. I know there is a market for this kin...
  • Teresa
    This series keeps getting better and better! Bones Don’t Lie is the 3rd book in the Morgan Dane series. Morgan Dane is an attorney and single Mom. After her husband died in Iraq 2 years ago she returned home to be close to her family. Lance Kruger is a private investigator and Morgan’s boyfriend. Lance has always wondered what happened to his father that went missing 20 years ago. He never believed his father would’ve just left him and his ...
  • Gloria Bernal
    Aptly titled, this 3rd installment of the Morgan Dane series focuses on Lance’s background. Lance is Morgan’s BFF and romantic interest who is now with Sharp Investigations after a bad bullet wound to his leg ended his career as a police officer. If you haven’t read the other two books this can be read as a stand alone, but in order to get better acquainted with Morgan, a military widow and attorney with 3 little girls, it is recommended to...

    I have yet to be disappointed with anything Melinda Leigh has written. Her characters are well developed and continue to grow as the series progresses. Every character dead or alive as a reason and purpose to be in the Morgan Dane series.Readers will be pulled in from page one until the last page giving readers everything they have come to know and love from Melinda Leigh's writing. She bring characters from different series and we read as they h...

    This series just keeps getting better and better! Melinda Leigh is a romantic suspense master and her genius continues with Bones Don’t Lie. This is Book 3 and wraps up the underlying mystery for the Kruger family. It also deepens the relationship between Lance and Morgan. This happens so organically and is handled skillfully and beautifully. It was just perfect. There was a lot going on in this book! I’m so impressed at how the author channe...
  • Jennifer
    What's it say about me when a murder mystery by Melinda Leigh is like a warm, cuddly blanket?3.5 stars. Honestly, there isn't anything that I don't like about this book. It features mature, non-dumb characters who actually communicate, has multiple povs (including the guilty party) that keep things interesting, and is written around an interesting and twisty cold case. I did not figure out the identity of the murderer, hence the half star higher ...

    This was AWESOME! Each book has beeb better than the last! Cant wait for the next one to come out!
  • Carolyn
    Fantastic murder/mystery romance! I just loved this series! Melinda Leigh is definitely a "go to" author for me!
  • Carla Johnson-Hicks
    Bones Don’t Lie by Melinda Leigh is the third installment of the Morgan Dane series and the best so far. This series touches so many genres from crime, romance, suspense and even family relationships/dynamics thrown in. Each book in the series has featured a new case for lawyer, Morgan and P.I.s Lance Kreuger and his boss to investigate. This book is Lance's story. I would suggest that the reader start at the beginning of this series as there i...

    For twenty-three years Lance Kruger has been wondering what happened to his father. He left one evening to go to the grocery store and never returned, leaving ten-year-old Lance to care his mother who had and has a variety of mental illnesses including anxiety and agoraphobia. Lance was mentored by Lincoln Sharp who investigated the disappearance and has since formed his own private investigations business. After Lance was shot in the line of dut...
  • Charlotte Lynn
    I am always amazed at the skill of an author to take a storyline, add side stories, twists and turns while still managing to make a complete story. Melinda Leigh is so very talented. The story of the missing father intrigued me, then she added in the stalker, and some new murders tying it all together perfectly. There were clues that led me to believe that I knew who was guilty of the various crimes and how the stories would all come together. I ...
  • Caitlyn Lynch
    Third in this bestselling series, if you haven’t read the first two, I don’t recommend starting here.Can you tell I started here? I feel like I didn’t get to know Morgan all that well, particularly since although she is the protagonist, probably half the book was told from the point of view of either her boyfriend, Lance Kruger, or his partner in investigation, Lincoln Sharp. Morgan doesn’t even appear until Chapter 3. With so many PoV ho...
  • CD {Boulder Blvd}
    This is book #3 in the Morgan Dane series which has quickly become a favorite of mine. I love the characters of Morgan and Lance, their families and their friends. And the added plus is in each book there is a well developed suspense plot. In this one, when Lance's father's car is pulled from a lake, the mystery of his father's disappearance gets new clues and a renewed effort by Morgan and Lance to discover what happened to his father. As they f...

    I found this series (Morgan Lane) via my buddy read. ( )What I like most about this series (outside of the procedural) is the gradual development of the characters, their relationships, and their family environments. Bones Don't Lie reveals a lot about Lance's past and the mystery of his father's disappearance. I guessed the "bad guy" early but that didn't take away for the story or the tension. I'm looking...
  • Melissa Borsey
    I'm going to go out on a limb and call this the best romantic suspense book of 2018! Melinda Leigh has written a great series with likeable characters and the suspense oozes through each chapter until the shocking conclusion! I thank Netgalley for allowing me to read and review this great book! Higjly recommend!
  • Owl._.
    This book kept me guessing until the end .... I've read the whole series and love how the characters have developed over time. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series and seeing Morgan and Lance's relationship develop and hoepfully learn more about Sharp.
  • Sophia
    This book was inevitable in my mind from the moment Lance's past was introduced even back in the earlier Scarlet Falls series building through the Morgan Dane series. Lance is an ex-cop turned private investigator. Eventually, his dad's disappearance over twenty years prior leaving no resolution for him and his mother was going to take center stage. I was thrilled to finally get Bones Don't Lie knowing it was going to be deeply emotional, rivetin...
