Grave Secret (Harper Connelly, Bk 4)
robinmy avatar reviewed on + 2045 more book reviews

Harper Connelly was struck by lightning when she was a teenager. Since then, she has had the ability to find dead people and discern their last minutes. On her way to Texas with her stepbrother Tolliver Lang, Harper makes a quick stop when the Joyce family requests a reading on their grandfather's grave. Telling the Joyce family the circumstances of Mr. Joyce's death opens up a whole can of worms.

Meanwhile, Harper and Tolliver visit their younger sisters and Tolliver's older brother, Mark. They learn that Mark and Tolliver's father, Matthew Lang, is fresh out of prison and wants to reconcile with the family. On returning to their hometown, memories come crashing back. Harper's older sister Cameron disappeared without a trace eight years ago. When an anonymous caller informs the police that they saw someone matching Cameron's description at the local mall, Harper begins asking the questions she didn't ask as a teen.

This is the final book in the Harper Connelly series. Harper and Tolliver tell their family that they are a couple, much to the dismay of their relatives. I think people would accept their relationship more easily if Harper quit calling Tolliver "her brother". It just confuses people since they really are not related.

One of my favorite characters, Manfred Bernardo, is back to help Harper. I wish the author would give him his own book. I loved both of the mysteries in this book. When attempts on Harper & Tolliver's lives are made, the suspense ramped up. I was shocked by a huge twist near the end of the book and totally satisfied with the end of this series. My rating: 5 Stars.
