I've been reading since I was my oldest daughter's age….thanks to R.L. Stine & Christopher Pike…and later on thanks to Anne Rice.  Those 3 authors changed my life and I have been obsessed with reading ever since.

5 moons - On Her Father's Grave by Kendra Elliot

On Her Father's Grave (Rogue River Novella Book 1) - Kendra Elliot

I was ecstatic to find out two of my favorite romantic suspense authors were teaming up to write a series together. On Her Father's Grave is the first novella to Kendra Elliot's and Melinda's Leigh's Rogue River series and it's full of action and suspense just like their other novels. The first and third book in the series will be written by Kendra Elliot, while books two and four will be written by Melinda Leigh.

In the first novella of the Rogue series, On Her Father's Grave, Kendra Elliot writes about Stevie Tayler who returns to the small town of Solitude, Oregon to work on the police force there. It will be slow pace compared to her usual police work in the LAPD, but that may not be true after a popular high school student unexpectedly dies. Stevie believes he may have taken a drug, so she's determined to find out what it is and where he got it from. She receives help from her boss, Zane Duncan becomes the police chief unexpectedly. Roy the original police chief decides to quit for some reason and now it's up to Zane to take over. Zane is filling big shoes, especially since Stevie's father used to be the police chief.

On Her Father's Grave is a quick romantic suspense novella that can be read in one day. It has all the elements of a romantic suspense but fast paced. Kendra Elliot does an amazing job on keeping the reader engaged in the story with the characters. To the beginning to the end, I was anxious to find out what was happening in the town of Solitude, Oregon. I also wanted to know what was going to happen in the romance department in the book. Yes, there is romance involved in the story.  =)

I give this book 5 full moons and highly recommend this novella to romantic suspense readers out there. If you are fan of Kendra Elliot and Melinda Leigh's previous books, you will enjoy reading this novella series they have created together. I look forward to diving into the second book in the series by Melinda Leigh.

I received a complimentary copy of the book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
