Her Lonely Bones, by Wendy Dranfield

Her Lonely Bones book cover
TRIGGER WARNING: child murder
15 years ago a woman killed herself after her baby daughter went missing, presumed dead. Now a family are murdered on the same property and a toddler is missing. Madison Harper and her team are desperate to find little Annie while her associate Nate investigates the cold case for a killer who claims he was wrongly convicted…
Her Lonely Bones is the 6th book to feature Detective Madison Harper. There are mentions of plot details from earlier book but no spoilers.
A family move in to a delapidated property and are murdered wtihin hours of their arrival. Two adults and two boys, with evidence that a young girl may be missing. Meanwhile Nate is called onto a cold case by a convicted killer who swears he is innocent. The case involved a missing toddler on the same property.
Madison has some big emotional issues to deal with. Her son, who she was separated from while she was wrongfully incarcerated for murder, is heading to college. Her friendship with Nate is threatened by his decision to leave town and their reluctance to address and admit their feelings. Given their pasts, both are affected by the cold case and a potential wrongful conviction.
The emotion of child murder is quite difficult to read at times. It is absolutely heartbreaking that Madison finds one of the boys barely alive but fails in her frantic efforts to revive him. The descriptions of the adult bodies are quite grisly despite being presented forensicially. I did guess a big plot twist but this did not spoil my enjoyment as I watched the plot unfold.
Her Lonely Bones is a disturbing crime thriller.

Her Lonely Bones: A totally jaw-dropping and addictive crime thriller (Detective Madison Harper Book 6)
The house is deathly silent as the summer sun starts to creep in through the dusty windows. The children should be waking up, the parents should be cooking breakfast. But they all lay still, their heads on their pillows, lifeless eyes staring at nothing, their bodies waiting to be discovered…
When a couple and their young twin boys are discovered brutally murdered in their beds, everyone suspects this is a home invasion gone tragically wrong. But as Detective Madison Harper walks into the run-down house that is eerily empty, she isn’t so sure.
Talking to the neighbors, Madison soon discovers that the family only recently moved to the small town of Lost Creek, Colorado. No one has met them, and no one knows their names. With nothing to identify them in the house, or even to show that the house belonged to them, Madison is suddenly faced with not only having to find a cold-blooded killer, but needing to identify the victims too.
Then, Madison’s heart stops in her chest when she discovers a small yellow t-shirt in the back of the family’s vehicle that says Daddy’s Girl. The couple must have had a daughter as well as the twin boys, but where is she? Madison suspects she’s been abducted, and vows to find the missing little girl before it’s too late.
But as Madison makes a breakthrough in identifying the family, she discovers they had a secret that changes the whole course of the investigation. Madison knows with every second that passes the chances of finding the girl alive get smaller, but she’s prepared to risk everything to find her, even her own life…
An absolutely gripping and twist-packed read that will make your jaw drop! Perfect for fans of Lisa Regan, Melinda Leigh and Kendra Elliot.
