Right Behind Her by Melinda Leigh

To protect everyone she loves, Bree must confront a killer.

The discovery of human remains unearths another nightmare from Sheriff Bree Taggert’s past in a bone-chilling thriller by #1 Amazon Charts and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Melinda Leigh.

Twenty-seven years ago, Sheriff Bree Taggert’s father killed her mother, then himself. Now Bree and her younger brother, Adam, find human bones on the grounds of their abandoned family farm. The remains are those of a man and a woman, both murdered in the same horrible way.

When the investigation determines the murders occurred thirty years ago, Bree’s dead father becomes a suspect, forcing Bree to revisit the brutal night she’s spent most of her life trying to forget. The only other suspect is an unlikely squatter on the Taggert farm who claims to know secrets about Bree’s past. When he mysteriously disappears and Bree’s niece is kidnapped, the cold case heats up.

Bree has stoked the rage of a murderer who’ll do anything to keep his identity—and motives—a secret. To protect everyone she loves, Bree must confront a killer.

M/F Mystery

Bree is reliving the past again. Only this time, it's right up in her face and in the face of the people she loves most. She knew returning to their old house was a mistake. There were too many memories and too much pain, but she wanted to support her brother. Now, she wishes she could take it back.

In this fast-paced mystery, you're uncovering years of murder, a plot that only can be hidden for so long now that bodies are associated with it, and the killer who's willing to do anything to keep their secret hidden.

You'll see this small town's underbelly at its worst. Leigh creates a high stress situation among everyone who's involved, but she also sends in hints of what might have happened.

I really enjoyed following the nuggets as they were divulged. Leigh leads you along with crumb after crumb and in the end, you breathe a sigh of relief. Maybe now Bree and her family can have some peace.

The fourth instalment of the Bree Taggert series sees Bree returning to her family farm, 27 years after her father killed her mother only to discover human remains buried on the property. We then follow Bree as she investigates the 30-year-old murders that likely involved her father.

I really enjoyed the police investigation and watching Bree and her team as they identify the remains and try to work out who killed the victims and why. I found the story engaging and I liked that it wasn’t immediately obvious who the killer was. As well as the mystery, we get to see Bree’s romance with Matt take a few new steps, and it was good to see Bree’s life coming settled both professionally and personally.

Right Behind Her is another interesting crime story mixed with a little bit of life and love for Bree. I have to say there were a few scenes that really got my heart pumping and had me on the edge of my seat. This is a really good series and I’m looking forward to more books from Bree. Right Behind Her gets a solid four stars from me.
