Story Overview:
The electrifying conclusion of the romantic suspense novella series from Melinda Leigh and Kendra Elliot.

The sleepy town of Solitude, Oregon, has turned into ground zero for a turf war between the manufacturers and distributors of a lethal new drug. When a teenage witness disappears, social worker Carly Taylor must find him before he’s silenced permanently.

Rogue County investigator Seth Harding wants to keep Carly, his estranged wife, out of harm’s way, but she refuses to let his concern keep her from doing her job. When one of her young charges vanishes, Carly gets pulled even deeper into the deadly case, and Seth knows he must help her…even if it leads them right into the criminals’ crosshairs.

Explosive and exciting to the last page, Walking on Her Grave is the fourth and final thrilling addition to the new romantic suspense series from Melinda Leigh and Kendra Elliot.
My Review:
oooh, I think this was my favorite installment of the series, but poor Seth...the poor guy makes WAY too many ER visits in this book. But this is the final installment in the series and that means that there is LOTS of action as the suspense storyline...who is bringing drugs into Solitude, OR and killing half the town (it seems) finally resolved. And I have to admit, I didn't see that twist coming. 

This book also has the resolution for the romance story line between Seth and Carly. As a married couple who have been separated the entire book, it was great to see their relationship evolve into a good place...and that did take change. Because while they've never debated that their love was still there, there were serious issues which they had to work through. 

Overall, this has just been a great series...especially if you are a romantic suspense fan (like me). Both authors did a great job writing their individual couples and story lines, but also integrating their stories seamlessly together. I loved the whole story, the set-up, the town and the politics within. At one point I wasn't sure that there was going to be anyone left alive to be the "bad-guy" but they pulled it off. Each installment is a pretty quick read, but never did I feel short-changed in the story line. 

I definitely recommend this and the three novellas that came before it. While they "could" be read separately, I definitely wouldn't recommend it. You will want to read all of them to get the whole overview of the story!

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
