    I used to love this series and occasionally I still love it I guess that is why I keep reading it When I first started reading the Temperance Brennan series it was fresh and new and I loved the characters What I don't like is the character's stupidity Temperance is a forensic anthropologist she is not FBI or DEA or CIA or ATF or even local police yet she continues to go off in a snit and gets herself into situations where she needs to be rescued by one of the above Because she feels that Ryan or Skinny or whatever police force she is working with at the time is not moving fast enough for her she can't take the time for them to get evidence or a warrant she goes off half cocked confronts the killer or kidnapper or whatever and gets herself in a situation where she needs to be rescued To add insult to injury in the last book Ryan her on again off again lover asked her to marry him In this episode he is pressing her a little for an answer She tells him your overprotectiveness implies that I can't take care of myself That I can't handle difficult situations on my ownI need my autonomy I need to know I can rely on myself Really?? In every book she does need to be rescued by Ryan or someone else if he's not available In fact she needs a keeper There are many things to like about this character this is not one of them Right now I don't want to read any of this series but I'm sure I'll change my mind when the next one comes out next year And that's my rant for today

    This was mostly a good book fast paced and with an interesting story I wished she would make up her mind about Ryan though The dithering is becoming boring and Zeb Romsey looked like an alternative proposition The whole thing was unfortunately marred by a poor ending view spoilerAs usual Tempe did something foolish and had to be rescued by her male cavalry hide spoiler

    Temperance Brennan gets a call from Hazel “Lucky” Strike a web sleuth that spends most of her time trying to solve cold cases and now she thinks that she has found out the identity of a body that Tempe has in her lab Is it eighteen year old Cora Teague that went missing a couple of years ago that the bones belong to?It's been a while since I read a Kathy Reichs book and even though I had no problem whatsoever getting into the story is it uite clear that stuff has happened in the personal life of Temperance her mother is in a hospital her daughter Katy is in Afghanistan and Ryan has proposed to her I really must go back and read all the books in the series that I have missedThe case seemed interesting enough apparently there are people who have watched too many episodes of CSI NCIS Bones etc and they get it into their heads that they also can solve unsolved cases Lucky Strike is one of them and now she thinks that the bones found in Rocky Mountain are that of Cora Teague the problem is that the family hasn't listed her missing But Lucky has found a recording of what she thinks is Cora and two men talking and that Cora is being held captive then killed But she doesn't want to give up the recording to Tempe Later on Temperance starts investigating the caseThe story actually took a different turn than I thought it would take The story took its time there were many puzzling things with the case bones were found and Cora's family wasn't very cooperative And then we have the church the family belonged to A very strict version of the Catholic ChurchThis was a very good book Temperance trying to solve a case while at the same time contemplating Ryan's proposal It took a while for the story to really started not dull in or anything just a slow pace in the beginning I liked that nothing was rushed and I liked that Kathy Reichs managed to surprise me in the endThis is probably the best Kathy Reichs I have read so far and I'm looking forward to reading the next one in the series and also the ones I missed I received this copy from the publisher through NetGalley in return for an honest review Thank you

    It’s amazing that this is the 18th novel in Kathy Reichs’s Temperance Brennan Series which I have been following from the 1st book I like the author’s writing style and how she has developed her characters throughout the seriesTemperance is drawn into a missing person case despite her initial misgivings This is a case filled with twists and surprises forensic details religion secrets murder and personal drama I felt a bit of a letdown when it came to Temperance and Andrew Ryan’s relationship What is wrong with Tempe??? I adore Andrew Ryanhe’s such an interesting character and to see him being so patient and understand even when Tempe was giving him a hard timemade me like him even I loved Daisy Tempe’s mother What a fabulous and endearing character Also liked seeing Sidell the detective that Tempe has worked with previouslytheir scenes together were so funnymy favorite has to be when Tempe is on the fone discussing the case and Siddell is busy cleaning his nails with a pen knife Another aspect I enjoyed about this book was how each chapter ends on a cliffhangerit had me turning the next page as uick as possible so I could find outwhat nextAlthough I enjoyed this book it wasn’t as good as the first ones in the series However I am looking forward to continuing reading about Temperance Brennanand some of Andrew Ryanplease

    When Tempe is approached to look into the mysterious disappearance of a young woman it leads her on a roller coaster type investigation that involves than a few creepy characters But I wasn't as interested in the case as I was in Tempe and Ryan's relationship Kathy Reichs really had me worried I was satisfied with the ending

    35 I have always liked the character of Tempe Brennan She is tough formidable and intelligent and often after a few wrong turns able to somehow put cases together that others might miss One thing that always bothers me though is how such an incredibly smart woman always manages to put herself in harms way sometimes strains credibility In this one the case was a very interesting one A radical sect of the Catholic Church and all that this entails and a group of online sleuths that attempt to solve cold cases draw Tempe into a murder and much Good storyline and I learned something new Shall I start on line sleuthing? No would rather just read about them but it does sound interestingARC from Netgalley

    Across the country there were countless missing persons; and there were countless remains in storage that were unable to be matched to a victim The frustration of people like forensic anthropologist Dr Tempe Brennan was intense but they continued to do their best in their positions as identifiers of the dead When Tempe was approached by a woman whose name was Hazel Strike “call me Lucky” she was dismissive of Lucky’s claims that she had identified remains with a victim Lucky was an amateur detective; a web sleuth; who delved into the workings of the world wide web finding many and varying sites; some legitimate some not; which held information But it was the words on a recording device which caused Tempe to pay attention to the words Lucky was utteringAs Tempe began to investigate the location of the bones with a local Sheriff Zeb Ramsey their discoveries started taking on a sinister feeling With bones turning up; the inclusion of a nearby church; a seemingly dangerous cult; was there to Lucky’s claims than Tempe had first realized? When a sudden and shocking death occurred Tempe knew the danger had closed in around them – this case was proving to be horrifying; evil than anyone could possibly imagine With Tempe struggling with the case; on again off again boyfriend Ryan wanting an answer; Tempe’s mother with an illness she didn’t want to think about – it seemed Birdie Tempe’s long suffering cat was the only one that Tempe could talk to and get some sense out of Would she find a solution to this horrifying and dangerous situation?I thoroughly enjoyed Speaking in Bones by author Kathy Reichs She is a writer who knows how to entertain – this gripping thriller is filled with incredible twists throughout the story; an excellent plot; laugh out loud humour mixed with forensic details that don’t bog the reader down and wonderful characters that always leave me wanting I have read all this author’s work and as always can’t wait for her next I have no hesitation in recommending Speaking in Bones highlyWith thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for my copy to read and review

    I think this series has finally played out for me Tempe has brilliant technical skills but I don't seem to like her very much She takes stupid chances to move the plot along Her personality seems to have stagnated and I guess I'm just bored with her The supporting characters seem far interesting

    Unbelievably it is outing number 18 for Kathy Reichs and Temperance Brennan a series I have followed right from the start reading a Bones novel for me is the euivalent of sinking into a warm bath at the end of a stressful day glass of wine to hand Whilst I have loved some than others the author never disappoints me they are always darn good reads excellent construction great mystery elements and intriguing development for our favourite main charactersIn Speaking in Bones Tempe is drawn into a missing persons case by an enigmatic and rather forceful figure becoming interested despite herself Tempe gets embroiled in strange family dynamics religious fervour and some weird and obscure goings on As ever she is like a dog with a bone yes yes I know and will not give in until the truth comes out One thing I've always loved about this main protagonist is her tendency to run headlong into danger whilst berating herself for doing so She's a bit like me suffers from chronic impatienceAnyway as ever this is scintillating stuff when it comes to the forensics unsurprisingly given the vast range of knowledge and experience in the hands of the author and it has a beautiful flow to it which is sometimes annoying in a good way as Kathy Reichs has a habit of finishing her snappy chapters with a sentence that means you simply have to read the next I want to give a nod to one of the recurring characters Slidell who I disliked intensely when I met him some books ago and who I now worship with the passion of a true reader He is so beautifully ironic and a perfect foil for Tempe their interactions make up some of the best parts of the novels these days The dark humour the author adds to proceedings lives and breathes in this relationship and due to some developments in this instalment I believe we will see a lot of him YayOf course the ongoing drama between Tempe and Ryan continuesI'm fond of their partnership on and off up and down but very authentic given their circumstances and personalities Overall then an excellent addition to an already excellent series I am a loyal fan because I have been given no reason not to be I loved this one and am already anticipating the next A beautiful set up here for some great stories to comeHappy Reading Folks

    “You have no positive ID on any of the Brown Mountain remains You have no DNAYou have no known victim no primary scene no weapon no motive no witnesses no legit suspect You don’t know for sure if Cora Teague is dead Or even missing”Speaking in Bones is the eighteenth full length novel in the Tempe Brennan series by American forensic anthropologist and author Kathy Reichs Tempe finds herself intrigued and horrified by the somewhat dubious evidence that Hazel Strike aka Lucky presents to convince her that a set of her unidentified remains UIDs could belong to a victim of torture Cora Teague has not been seen since 2011 but her family don’t consider her missing that claim comes from a poster on the CLUES website going by the handle of OMG; the post attracted Lucky Strike a dedicated Websleuther with a successful ID attributed to her work Against the considered advice of her own colleagues of Ryan and of the Deputy initially involved in the case and even against her own better judgement Tempe heads for the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina Multiple visits there uncover further clues to the identity of the UID but also put Tempe’s life in danger More bones some religious fanatics a well trained sniffer dog and a few interesting artefacts are encountered At the same time Tempe is distracted by her mother Daisy’s behaviour and careful consideration of Ryan’s unexpected proposal In this instalment Reichs explores the preserving properties of pine sap the reason a corpse might be devoid of fingerprints exorcism the inadeuacies of systems for dealing with Missing Persons and Unidentified remains and the growing phenomenon of Websleuthing A fundamentalist splinter group of mainstream religion a certain rare disease state and mental illness also featureIf Reichs could just dispense with two minor irritations that seem to be de rigeur for every Tempe Brennan novel then these books would be pretty much perfect 1 It’s really not necessary to end so many chapters with a cliff hanger sentence these books are page turners already so there is no need to resort to this sort of gimmick 2 Just once it would be nice to see Tempe restrain her impatience and not rush headlong into a dangerous situation without backup After all she’s an intelligent woman would she really be this stupid time after time? Nonetheless this is an excellent read
