Book 2 of Widow's Island
Romantic Suspense/Mystery

Deputy Tessa Black gave up her career as a detective with the Seattle PD and returned to the Pacific Northwest island she calls home to care for her ailing mother. Tessa thinks her mother's illness is the worst thing she'll face—until she responds to a routine call in the state park and discovers a local man harpooned to a sign.

As the murder investigation unfolds, it becomes clear that the victim harbored secrets. Together with her FBI agent best friend, Cate, and park ranger Logan Wilde, Tessa must connect the pieces before the murderer strikes again. But the closer she gets to the truth, the more she finds herself—and the ones she loves—in harm's way.

Pressure mounts as Tessa attempts to juggle the current case with her search for the truth behind her childhood friend Samantha's disappearance twenty years ago. Can Tessa find the murderer and uncover answers about Samantha without jeopardizing everything she holds dear?

A BONE TO PICK focuses on another mystery murder and features Tessa Black, the best friend of book one's heroine Cate Wilde, and Cate's brother Logan. I think this book is mainly to introduce the heroine and her romantic partner, because while the mystery is solved here, the series arc (which was introduced in the first book) didn't advance at all. Again, the romance is understated, and though Logan believed that the connection between him and Tessa is "solid" (they were childhood friends who reconnected ten years later), I didn't feel the connection at all at the time that he had that thought.

Nevertheless, this is an entertaining, enjoyable story. I just wish the next two books (there are two more coming in 2019) would be longer (like maybe full-length?) and that there would be more romantic development (and I don't mean sex).
