This is my last chance to ditch my playboy reputation and finally fulfill my potential. So I’ve made three rules for our biggest season yet: no boozing, no women, and no scandals.

Especially that last thing.

So who do I befriend on the very first day back at the rink? An amazing female hockey player. I want Sylvie in a way that’s more than just friendly. I crave her. But I have a championship to win, and so does she.

Then she gets her heart broken by my teammate, and I make the foolish mistake of comforting her in the best way I know how. Our night together sets off a string of sins.

Nobody can know about our affair, especially my overprotective teammate. I can’t let anyone see into my greedy little heart. Not even her.

The things I want from her, and the things we’ve already done? If anyone knew, there’d be bombshells.

Release Week Review: Quiet in Her Bones by Nalini Singh

 
Quiet in Her Bones
Berkley Books | February 23rd, 2021

Included in Amazon’s
February 2021 Mystery/Thriller Best of the Month list

In this gripping thriller set in New Zealand, New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh takes you into the twisted world of an exclusive cul-de-sac located on the edge of a sprawling forest.

My mother vanished ten years ago.
So did a quarter of a million dollars in cash.
Thief. Bitch. Criminal.
Now, she’s back.
Her bones clothed in scarlet silk.

When socialite Nina Rai disappeared without a trace, everyone wrote it off as another trophy wife tired of her wealthy husband. But now her bones have turned up in the shadowed green of the forest that surrounds her elite neighborhood, a haven of privilege and secrets that’s housed the same influential families for decades.

The rich live here, along with those whose job it is to make their lives easier. And somebody knows what happened to Nina one rainy night ten years ago. Her son Aarav heard a chilling scream that night, and he’s determined to uncover the ugly truth that lives beneath the moneyed elegance…but no one is ready for the murderous secrets about to crawl out of the dark.

Even the dead aren’t allowed to break the rules in this cul-de-sac.

What I thought about Quiet in Her Bones

I absolutely adore Nalini Singh's contemporary writings and was very excited to read this psychological suspense thriller.  The blurb gives a good overview of main aspects of the story so I'm not going to get into the plot so I don't spoil it for anyone.

The story is set in New Zealand which makes this so very interesting from a US reader perspective. I love how I feel transported to a new location when I read Ms. Singh's work. This is a world so unlike the one I live in, especially the diverse aspects of the characters and region in the story. It's like looking into new world and kept me hooked throughout the story.

As a suspense thriller, the story works very well.  There's just enough information shared so that the reader is kept guessing about the details of the story and what is really happening.  Add a questionable unreliable narrator and that just ups the ante when it comes to building suspense and tension.

I thought the pacing was for the most part good for me as I've come to expect some slower spots to catch a breath in this type of novel. The mystery was expertly crafted and left me guessing.  The ending was quite exciting and left me feeling satisfied.

Overall, if you are looking for an interesting adventure along with a nicely crafted mystery, you might like Quiet in Her Bones.

A complementary copy was provided by the publisher. This is my honest review.

About USED (Coming 3/8/2021):

At the age of seventeen, after a decade of lies, hurt, and severe abuse by her brother Lucas, Sabra Valentine is able to breathe.
