Title: In Her Bones
Author: Kate Moretti
Stars: 4 stars
Kate Moretti is able to bring readers into her dark and twisted world where readers will never see what is coming until they read it. The story has more twist and turns than this reader expected. While the story is more of a physiological thriller than mystery as readers follow Edie on her quest to understand those effected by her mothers choices.
In her Bones is slow moving for the first half of the book but slowly picks up as Edie struggles with her memories.
The author is a master of the unexpected and readers will eat up her books.

Fifteen years ago, Lilith Wade was arrested for the brutal murder of six women. After a death row conviction, media frenzy, and the release of an unauthorized biography, her thirty-year-old daughter Edie Beckett is just trying to survive out of the spotlight. She’s a recovering alcoholic with a dead-end city job and an unhealthy codependent relationship with her brother.
Edie also has a disturbing secret: a growing obsession with the families of Lilith’s victims. She’s desperate to see how they’ve managed—or failed—to move on. While her escalating fixation is a problem, she’s careful to keep her distance. That is, until she crosses a line and a man is found murdered.
Edie quickly becomes the prime suspect—and while she can’t remember everything that happened the night of the murder, she’d surely remember killing someone. With the detective who arrested her mother hot on her trail, Edie goes into hiding. She’s must get to the truth of what happened that night before the police—or the real killer—find her.
Unless, of course, she has more in common with her mother than she’s willing to admit…
