The Bone Garden by Tess Gerritsen


The Bone Garden by Tess Gerrtisen

Following a painful divorce, Julia Hamill takes a chance buying an old dilapidated historic home in a small town outside of Boston. While digging in the garden, Julia finds an old skeleton buried in the yard. She feels compelled to discover who lies in this unmarked grave and together with a relative of the previous owner, digs into family treasures that bring them on a journey back to Boston in the 1830's and tells the story of a city divided by class lines and the fear invoked by a Jack the Ripper style serial killer.

I really enjoyed this one. I was glued to the book from beginning to the end. It wasn't as suspenseful as it could have been, but I was really drawn in by the characters and the developing story being unfolded as Julia and Henry read all of those old letters.

I'm almost done with this one. It's very good, but not perfect so far.

right, definitely not perfect. But entertaining. I do wish it had been more suspenseful.
