Publisher's Summary

A college student’s murder shines light on community secrets left in the dark in the seventh Widow’s Island novella by #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling author Melinda Leigh.

All communities have their secrets...but on Widow’s Island, there’s a skeleton in every closet, as Deputy Tessa Black knows all too well. When Tessa stumbles upon a half-buried body in the woods, a peaceful morning hike suddenly turns into a race to catch a killer.

Tessa identifies the skeletal corpse as Aurora Franklin, a young college student and aspiring actor. She’d come to Widow’s Island for a summer job, only to be strangled and discarded. Aurora has been dead for over a month - and not a single islander has reported her missing.

The investigation reveals a dangerous predator hiding in the Widow’s Island community. With her fiancé, park ranger Logan Wilde, by her side, Tessa must find Aurora’s murderer before they strike again.

Some inconsistencies

so these stories take place on an island/small group of islands. Throughout all of them, the authors repeatedly state how small the community is and that everyone knows everyone else's business. Yet the main characters are always meeting people who live on the island, some of whom have businesses as well, yet they don't know these people, and the people don't know Tessa is the sheriff and Lucas is the park ranger, not to mention that they grew up on the island. I realize people come and go, but come on, it seems like only 5 or 6 people know each other and the rest are strangers. It's just irritating after 7 novellas that no one caught this.

Excellence continues

As always this book was written very well. The narration was excellent. My only critique of this is that I wish all of these novella’s were put into one book. But because the story was so good I didn’t even ding a star.

short story

A short story in the series that has a murder mystery and an update on Logan and Tessa and how their life is going. Wish it had been just a bit longer but good overall.

Very addictive series!

The narrator is wonderful. She does a marvelous job of character voices. She easily switches from male and female. She will help you definitely connect, and care for the characters. This book was wonderful and delightful! The entire series is excellent! You will get a little love, danger, and a lot of suspense! Widows island might be small, and quaint, but it definitely provides its own share of mystery and suspense! I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Fabulous series with Kendra Elliot

The books flow seamlessly between authors, I loved all the stories, just everything about this experience! I could move between Kindle reading and Audible listening and I anxiously await all new installments!! Love these authors and after discovering the Widow's island novellas I have read everything each has written!!!
