Drown Her Sorrows (Bree Taggert Book 3) Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
A Wall Street Journal bestseller.
Sheriff Bree Taggert is blindsided by a killer’s devious plan in number one Amazon Charts and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Melinda Leigh’s novel of escalating shock and suspense.
When Sheriff Bree Taggert discovers the body of a young woman floating near the bank of the Scarlet River, a note in her abandoned car suggests suicide. The autopsy reveals a different story. Holly Thorpe was dead long before she dropped off the bridge and hit the water.
As Bree and her investigator Matt Flynn delve into the case, secrets in Holly’s personal life complicate their efforts to solve the murder. Holly left behind a volatile marriage, an equally divisive relationship with her sister, and an employer whose intimate involvement with Holly was no secret. Each one has a motive for murder.
When Holly’s sister is terrorized by a stalker’s sick prank, and the prime suspect turns up dead, everything Bree was sure of is upended and her case goes off the rails. When the killer strikes close to home, Bree and Matt must race to solve the murders before one of their own becomes the next victim.

About the author
Top reviews from United Kingdom
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
It bounced along quite well, but was slightly predictable.
It is one of a series, and they are best read in order, as stand alone you would miss the multi layered back story of Bree and others in the novel.
I am hoping this book is a bridge to the next one, and that one is as good as the previous books.
This one may have been written during the pandemic, I can't imagine trying to write when the world has tipped sideways, it cannot be easy, and I admire any author who sw the process through
Can’t wait to read the next one.....
This book will have you guessing at the turning of each page to 'whodunnit'?
I can't praise this author enough. Looking forward to the next in the series.
5 stars from this happy reader.
