In Marcia Talley's Sing It To Her Bones, the first installment in the Hannah Ives mystery series, Hannah Ives was recovering from cancer, unemployed, and down on her luck. Her marriage had hit a crisis point, when she went to Pearson's Corner to take time for herself and discovered a dead body of a girl who disappeared a decade ago. When she asked questions around, she stirred up a hornet's nest. Now people were trying to scare her off from the truth, when there'd been some attempts on her life to shut her up. When her sister-in-law was sailboat's pirated by the killers, the truth cane out in the open, when it dealt with life and death of the worst kind. This was a great debut for a mystery series with lots of drama, suspense and action, when we saw things from her eyes only, when it unraveled like a ball of yarn.
This was a fascinating and intriguing Hannah Ives mystery debut. I did care about Hannah, when she was dealt with a whole lot of stuff in her life. I applaud her efforts from being a cancer survivor and taking time off for herself. I did feel bad for that missing girl she found in Pearson's Corner. I didn't like people trying to scare her off and to shut her off, when she was trying to get down to the heart of the matter. I loved the central Maryland locations in the series, especially when it was by the marina. This one would make you cringe a few time. Great drama, excellent storyline with tons of twisty turns with action and mystery through and through.
