Review: Blood and Bone by Tara Brown


Listen, listen to the wind and stone.
Listen, listen to the sounds of old.
Listen, listen as my hopes are drowned.
Listen, listen to the sounds that bullets make of blood and bones.
Where will you run today?
How will you ever get away?”

This is NOT a romance. This is a ride.

Blood and Bone

The hollow sound of a casing hitting the floor.
The clicking of heels walking in a misty alley.
The ability to tie a cherry stem with her tongue.
A haunting song no one else knows.
That's all that's left of Jane's memories.

What would you do if the life you lived was a lie, and everyone knew but you?
Where do you run when there is no one on your side?
Jane discovers that deep inside her mind there is a map.
What she doesn't know is that there is also a man who will do anything to get it.

But what he doesn't know is that Jane hasn't always been honest about the things she remembers.
There are paces inside of Jane that even she doesn't like to go.

What would you do if the secret you kept was the only thing keeping you alive?

But keeping it meant someone else had to die. 

Don't miss out on the new dark read by Tara Brown!

This book certainly delivered on the promise of a ride! Fans of psychological suspense will enjoy this story of “Jane” and her path to uncovering the truth about her past.

Blood and Bone is purposely confusing with an unreliable narrator. Jane is living a fairytale life with no memory of her past. One day her past catches up to her and she has to decide who to believe: the FBI or the love of her life Derek.

It’s hard to write a review without giving away too much about the book. I will say that some of the twists I enjoyed, but by the fifty percent mark, I started to find the plot to be too over the top. I just felt like some of these major bombs were glossed over and it took away from the impact. Plus, I wasn’t feeling the chemistry between the two main characters which made me lack a connection to the plot.

The pace was good and the plot was unique, so despite my struggles with some of the story elements, I may continue with the series.

Rating: 3/5 Stars

Thanks to the publisher for a copy of the novel for review!
