When Adele Delaney and her daughter, Violet, go missing, Jacques Rouleau is called upon to investigate

When her body is discovered her husband is accused of her murder and with Jacques wife dangerously ill he sends Kala Stonechild and Paul Gundersund to do the job.

This pacy novel is just the best to read. Book 3 in the series and it's lost none of it's grip.

Amazing characters and the chance to get to know them personal as well as professionally almost make them good friends that I welcomed back.

I  didn't realize, when I first started this book, that it was #3 in a series. While it might have been useful to have had knowledge of a bit of the back story, it wasn't essential to my enjoyment, and enjoy this I did. 

Brenda Chapman has an 'easy' way of writing; it is all very relaxed and the story flows brilliantly. Her characters have personality and are realistic, therefore not always likeable. 

My heart ached for Kala and her ward Dawn as they pussy footed around one another, each afraid to disturb the delicate balance of their situation. 

And the main storyline of a murdered woman and a missing, presumed murdered child held me enthralled. I read to almost half way in the first sitting, and finished it in the second. 

Tumbled  Graves is an excellent read and I look forward to catching up on the earlier books in the series, and those yet to come. 

4.5☆ and I enjoyed the poetry excerpts from T S Eliot. 

Thank you to Dundurn via Netgalley for providing a digital copy of Tumbled Graves by Brenda Chapman for review. All opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.

Tumbled Graves by Brenda Chapman is a mystery and thriller read. 
A missing child. A dead mother. Kala Stonechild is about to discover what one betrayal can lead to.
When Adele Delaney and her daughter, Violet, go missing, Jacques Rouleau is called upon to investigate. However, struggling with the impending death of his ill ex-wife, he sends Kala Stonechild and Paul Gundersund instead. Stonechild has been trying to adapt to life as her young cousin Dawn’s guardian, and even though Gundersund has offered support, Stonechild is at risk of losing custody.
I really enjoyed this book.  Wanting to know if mother and daughter were safe and what happened to them. I was surprised with who it was. I wasn't expecting that. Highly recommended.  5*. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this book from netgalley.
