To the Grave

To the Grave is a romantic suspense book that could have been a thrilling page turner had the characters had more depth to them and been less dated. Unfortunately, even with a decent mystery interwoven through the story, with the murderer not being who you expect, couldn’t overcome the shortfalls with the characters. The main couple, James and Catherine, were too stiff and cold. Even with everything that was happening to them, I could never connect with either of them. Both James and Catherine were supposed to be around 30, but they acted and talked like they were fresh out of the 50’s. It made a modern day crime of passion less realistic with two main characters that didn’t seem to live in 2012.

Dr. Catherine Gray has returned home to Aurora Falls to be with her family, join a psychology practice and finally be with the man that she has loved forever. But if Catherine had any ideas that getting her happily ever after was going to be easy...she was wrong.

When Catherine discovers James’ ex-wife dead in his family’s cottage, she stumbles upon a killer’s determination for revenge and finds herself right in the middle of trouble. As the killing spree continues, everything centers around James’ ex-wife and Catherine could be next.
