The Family Bones
I just finished “The Family Bones” by Kimberly Raiser. This book is a fast and great read!!! My goodness, while reading this book there were times I didn’t want to turn the lights off in order to go to bed; very suspenseful, with a lot of interaction between the characters. The story is about a family that has inherited a house and grounds from the husband’s relatives. Strange, unexplainable happenings start to occur while the family is checking out the house and surrounding grounds. While reading this book the strange occurrences did spook me. Kimberly has a great hold on suspending the suspense and with about a fourth of the book left to read, all a of sudden the characters change, or you could say that they let their true motives and deeds known. At the end of the book, the reader receives a nice wrap up regarding all of the strange happenings in and around this house. Yet at the same time, Kimberly leaves the door open for a sequel.
Due to the complex character’s, this book is a fast read. I recommend this book to readers who love a good mystery. It is the kind of book that makes you want to sleep with the lights on and you only go to sleep once your eyes are heavy from reading.
Before I read this book, I thought I knew every mystery an author could create, as well as being able to predict the conclusion. The conclusion was not what I expected yet I was left satisfied. I eagerly look forward to the next book by Kimberly, be it a sequel to “The Family Bones” or something totally different.
