Garden Girl by Renny DeGroot (audiobook)

Garden Girk book cover

A discovery of bones is revealed to be a missing young woman. Sarah was assumed to have run away but now a murder investigation is launched, led by Gordie MacLean and his new partner. Then another body is found…
Garden Girl is a police procedural novel set in Canada.
Gordie uncovers an unhappy background to his murder victim Sarah. She is dug up in a garden whilst her friends and family claim she ran away due to issues at home. There are plenty of suspects to investigate and the pressure is on when another corpse is found, fresh this time. Gordie argues wuth his superiors about whether the two murders are connected.
The plot was engaging and I liked the developing working relationship between Gordie and Roxanne. Of course, my favourite part was the inclusion of the dog Taz! My knowledge of the police structure in Canada is non-existent so I was a little unclear on the ranking system, although I did recognise the Mounties when mentioned!
I found the different voices and accents a bit overwhelming as there were so many but they were distinctive. It was impressive that the voice artist managed to do so many voices and accents! I was particularly impressed by the female tone used.
Garden Girl has an intriguing crime to solve and an easy-to-like lead detective (and dog!)
