Bare Bones by Kathy Reichs

She works with the dead, but she works for the living.

"Down time" is not a phrase in Tempe Brennan''s vocabulary. A string of disturbing cases has put her vacation plans on hold; instead, she heads to the lab to analyze charred remains from a suspicious fire, and a mysterious black residue from a small plane crash. But most troubling of all are the bones. . . . Tempe''s daughter''s new boyfriend invites them to a picnic -- a pig pickin'' -- in the North Carolina countryside, where a cache of bones turns up. But are they animal or human? X-rays and DNA may link the crimes, but they can''t reveal who is closing in on Tempe and her daughter -- and how far they will go to keep her from uncovering the truth.

The sixth installment in the Temperance Brennan series, Bare Bones, was just as much of a smash hit as its predecessors. It embodied mystery and plausibility at every chapter, and of course incorporated wonderfully written themes of romance and family.

Well, Kathy Reichs does it again! I must admit, its getting tough to find different ways of saying the same things; I just love these books. The content is always fresh, and the ideas never boring. Forensic anthropology has never been exposed in such a captivating fashion, and the ever-present wit and spunk of Temperance Brennan is so compelling. I love everything about them.

This time we see Temperance Brennan only in North Carolina (boo-I ♥ Canada), with the addition of her hunky suitor. We see much more character development (which I have been patiently waiting for) that seems to be timed perfectly throughout the series, a characteristic shared with the show, Bones as well.

Well there really isn't much more that I can say other than to try them out for yourself! ( and the show :)

You won't be disappointed!--Cheers & Enjoy♥
