    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.

    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...

    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...

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...

    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 ...

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 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...

    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...

    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...

    Once again, I am jumping into the middle of a series hoping I’m not lost or can catch up. Lucky for me I only had a few moments in Bones Don't Lie where I felt I was missing something and that mainly happened around Morgan and Lance - specifically, their romance. Obviously there is something going on here. Both have pass life experiences that influence them. Hers the loss of her husband and his, at first, it wasn’t obvious but the further I g...

    Reading this series has reminded me of the story of the hare and the turtle. Slow and steady like the turtle wins the race. Each book through the series has been a slow, gentle build up to the conclusions in Bones Don’t Lie, Book 3.The romance between Lance and Morgan has progressed slowly and gently. And the mystery of the disappearance of Lance’s father over 20 years ago has been built up bit by bit over the previous books. In Bones Don’...

    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...

In Say You're Sorry, the first book in this series, we learn a bit about PI Lance Kruger and his father that literally vanished into thin air when he was only ten years old. The case was thoroughly investigated time and time again by Sharp, who was the lead cop on the case at the time. He continuously ran into dead ends, until now, when ...

    I really loved this exciting, suspenseful story, and I never once suspected who the killer turned out to be. It is a well written and researched storyline that has you misled and captivated at every turn. The characters continue to grow both individually and in their relationships with every book written and you can not help but be attached to them. I think the small details that the author includes in the story, like a mother of three not wantin...

I loved meeting again Lance, Morgan and Sharp and the other characters. Both main characters have strong, complex personalities, each of them with painful issues to overcome.The suspense part was also interesting, but what moved me in this book was really the character development and the close and strong relationshi...
