Falling Into the World of Tempe Brennan and Bones Never Lie

Bones Never Lie (Temperance Brennan, #17)Bones Never Lie by Kathy Reichs
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A few months ago I’d never heard of Kathy Reichs, but I started watching the tv series “Bones”, and kept seeing her name listed as a producer and source of the original Tempe. After my family and I began watching all the tv series episodes on Netflicks, we were hooked.

Then came one fateful day when I was at the annual convention of Romance Writers of America in San Antonio. Given a copy of “Bones Never Lie”, I blessed my good fortune and put it away for reading later. That day came this week, and I had trouble putting it down.

Wow. This is one of those fantastic series that makes one wonder how it was missed for so many years. Far from the Tempe of “Bones”, it has a grittier realism and grown-up flavor. The sometimes goofy and distracting subplots of the tv series are missing her, leaving prime steak-like narration and characters.

Starting late in a series after characters have matured is a bit throwing off, but now the early books are calling my name. Can’t say enough praise for “Bones Never Lie”.
