Maya Rivers' move to the coastal town of Newport, Oregon, is supposed to mean a fresh start--and a long overdue reunion with her brother, Harley. But when a young activist goes missing and a fishing boat is set ablaze, Harley and his environmental group, the Coast Defenders, become prime suspects. After a second fire turns deadly, Maya grows determined to prove Harley's innocence. She finds an eerie clue that could break the case, but first she must choose: protect her family or uncover the truth.

Tip of a Bone by Christine Finlayson is an exciting mystery that I couldn’t put down. I like the characters and the setting. I love that there is a map at the beginning to give you the lay of the land. The town was a perfect setting for the story and the characters fit right in. Maya was a strong main character. She was likable and smart. I like how relentless she is when it comes to doing what is right and finding out the truth. The story was written very well and the plot was full of twists and turns. While I read and continued guessing who the bad guy was, I was very intrigued. There were a few different characters who were ‘bad’ so it kept me guessing. This was a really enjoyable mystery and the author did a great job at keeping the suspense throughout the book.

  1. Brooke, thank you so much for your great review of Tip of a Bone and for featuring the book on your blog today. I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed the mystery! “Relentless” is a great word to describe Maya. 🙂 She really doesn’t want to give up until she can solve this crime.

  2. Thank you, Paij and Brooke–it’s always great to encounter fellow mystery readers! I’ve been working my way through the various novels I picked up (giveaways and purchases) at the Left Coast Crime conference in March. Quite interesting to see the range of stories within the mystery genre.
