In Old Bones Never Die by Lesley A. Diehl, Connecticut fashionista Eve Appel has gone into business with her friend in a consignment store in Florida, but things never run smoothly and Eve just can’t keep her nose out. Becoming an apprentice to a retiring PI, Eve finds herself mixed up in things that she should have stayed away from. This time, she gets involved in the mystery of Walter Egret. Just before he died, he told his half-brother that he had found some bones and a pocket watch that belonged to their missing father. Eve gets on the trail and finds herself mixed up in a mystery that will open her eyes. Was the hit and run that killed Walter an accident, or did it have something to do with the construction company that unearthed what was possibly an Indian burial ground? This is Eve’s toughest mystery yet and could be the one that makes her as an investigator.

Old Bones Never Die (An Eve Appel Mystery) by Lesley Diehl is a great story. I haven’t read any of the previous books, but I felt there was enough backstory so that I didn’t miss out. However, it’s probably best to read the series in order to get the full picture. This is an easy book to follow and is packed with twists, turns and plenty of action. The characters are likable and identifiable with plenty of development, and the plot was deep enough to keep me interested. This is a fun book with serious undertones and I will most likely read the entire series. This is a great, easy read, good for whiling away a few hours and drifting off into another world.
