Following the tenth wedding anniversary of her aunt and uncle, Detective Katie Scott awakens to learn her aunt has been brutally murdered and her uncle, the Pine Valley Sheriff, is the only suspect. Because of her relationship with her uncle, Katie, the head of Pine Valley’s Sheriff Department’s Cold Case unit, is warned by the acting Sheriff to stay away from the murder investigation. Katie, an Afghanistan war veteran, highly talented detective, and all-round hard-headed woman, is not about to sit idly by while her uncle, the last member of her family, goes to prison for life... or worse. She figures out ways to investigate and comes up with some clues and evidence the assigned investigators missed. But the real coup comes when she digs through her cold cases.
It is rare when I read a book in only two sittings, but had I not fallen asleep on the couch at 4 a.m., I’d have finished Flowers on Her Grave in one sitting, making it one of a kind. Jennifer Chase is a writer extraordinaire. I can’t think of a single part of the writing trade that she could improve on. Her characters are as real as my next-door neighbors, her ability to show rather than tell, exceptional. Chase sets scenes with zero fat; she writes them lean but has everything necessary to give the reader a visual perspective. Throughout the story, there are little details that wouldn’t occur to most authors, but Chase gets them in there. One of these that comes to mind is her use of German language commands for her K9 German Shepard, Cisco. Flowers on Her Grave by Jennifer Chase is a fabulously written, exciting detective story that fans of any fiction genre will love. Character Katie Scott is amazing, and I am determined to go back and read books one and two in this series.
