A Distant Grave by Sarah Stewart Taylor
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Another solid procedural thriller from Sarah, a slow burn that will keep you enthralled from start to finish. Picking right up where we were left off on The Mountains Wild, Maggie is still recovering from her personal woes and her professional life is finally beginning to get back to normal, when she’s thrown headlong into another case that once again upends both her worlds and sends them colliding together once more.
Not only are you reading a mystery, you’re entrenched in the family life of Maggie, you’re wrapped up in Lucy’s wellbeing, you’re cheering on the love life of the beloved Uncle Danny, and you can hear the Irish brogue of Colin so many miles across the ocean. You personally feel the triumph of each clue found during the investigation, and the disappointment from different characters when something falls through or doesn’t go as planned. Everything about this story is different yet the feeling is familiar and comfortable.
This is incredibly written, an absolute joy to read, and I eagerly await the next installment of this series.
An advanced copy of this book was sent to me by the publisher. The opinions are my own.
