In Her Bones Reviews
After reading The Vanishing Year and enjoying it, I knew I had to read In Her Bones. I can't say that it wooed me. On the contrary, I think it was just ok.
What was the book about?
Edie Beckett is a 30-year-old female. She has a 9 to 5 job that she doesn't care much for. She's a recovering alcoholic and her past has marked her. Edie is the daughter of the famous serial killer Lilith Wade. Usually, serial killers are men, but Lilith is one of the exceptions. She murdered six women while Edie was ...more
This is my third Kate Moretti novel and I am a big fan of her writing style. This one has a dark and twisted theme. I reads just like a true crime story . I recently (today actually) saw a Dr. Phil episode where he interviewed a woman whose father is a notorious serial killer. In the novel, Edie is the daughter of a woman who is a convicted serial killer. Well, it gets even more twisted when Edie gets too close to someone connected to one of her mother's victims. Say what?!!
It definitely gets in ...more
This was a really good audio book - I didn't want to stop listening!

I really enjoyed “The Vanishing Year” by this author and was anxious to read her newest book, I was a bit disappointed.

She is a recovering alcoholic and has an unhealthy co-de ...more
A clever twist on the serial killer story mixed with a murder and Moretti's trademark masterful prose = a haunting, can't-put-it-down story. Kate Moretti never disappoints!
Since The Vanishing Year, I have had to get my hands on all of Moretti's books as soon as I can and I have found them to get better and better with each one I read! In Her Bones has an incredibly interesting premise (you can read it yourself in the description, I'm not big on summarizing in my reviews, which you all know) and asks some thought provoking questions around family and nature vs. nurture - all throughout understanding a serial killer mother (who kills the wives of the men she has aff ...more
In Her Bones by Kate Moretti is a thriller that tackles the question of just what might happen with the families that a killer has left behind.
