  • 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...

    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 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...

    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...
  • Rabid Reader
    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...

    Melinda Leigh has become one of my auto-buy authors with her outstanding Morgan Dane series. When I received an invitation from the publisher, via Net-Galley, to read and review Bones Don't Lie, book 3 in this amazing series, I eagerly accepted.I quickly became enthralled with this book. The characters are compelling, the plot is stirring, and her writing is superb as usual. The action-packed thriller kept me glued to my Kindle from the first pag...

    "Received an Advance Reader Copy in exchange for a fair review"I was immediately pulled into this story and read it in one setting. 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...
  • 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...

    I was given a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads. This time it is Lance’s personal and professional lives colliding when his father’s car is pulled up from the bottom of a local lake. With the support of Morgan and Sharp, Lance starts to reinvestigate his father’s disappearance more than twenty years earlier. I really loved the twists and turns in this story. Everyone is a suspect as Lance has to confront hard truths abou...

    Not Too ShabbyI liked it overall . Crazy ads sheriffs a little obvious from the beginning but other than that, a good read, decent storytelling, and captivating.

    Every time is read a book by Melinda I think know what I'm getting, but, that's not the case. Each book is far better than her last. Ms Leigh keeps me guessing all through the book and just when I think I've solved it, I haven't,this in my opinion is the skill of a fantastic author. I loved stepping back into the lives of old friend's, that how I think of some characters, Lance and Morgan make an awesome team, and they've always got each others b...

    This was a fast paced mystery that went back many years and included many players of the small town. The characters were believable and drew you in to their various situations that kept you reading .A twist I didn’t see coming at the end!
