Book Review: Bones in the Attic by F.M. Meredith


Halloween is coming to Rocky Bluff. Beth Milligan and other students are turning a city-owned property into a haunted house to benefit their art class. That is until one of the students finds a skeleton in a trunk in the attic. Now, all their plans might be ruined. Meanwhile, Officers Butler and Ayala are performing a wellness check on a resident whose neighbors say he hasn't been seen in a while.

Welcome back to Rocky Bluff, where the understaffed police department stays busy investigating crimes big and small in their beach community.

Bones in the Attic by F. M. Meredith is another great installment in the Rocky Bluff P.D. series. Continuing to follow favorite characters and new residents that play a role in individual stories, this police procedural reflects the day-to-day actions of law enforcement where personal lives and professional lives intersect. Some characters introduced in earlier books become recurring characters like Beth Milligan, Kayla Duvall, and Devon Duvall. It is interesting to watch them and their relationships develop in future books. 

Like in previous books, various subplots happen alongside the main plots. Some carry over book to book, with the author providing small bits of backstory so the reader is not lost if they pick up a book in the middle of the series. As with all the books in the Rocky Bluff P.D. series, Bones in the Attic stands alone, but I bet you will want to start with the first book and follow along.

I can't wait to see what comes next for the Rocky Bluff P.D. and their families.
