    Great read looking forward to the next one

    This is the second book in this series, the first one being The Dancing Girls, where we were first introduced to Jo a great start to a new series, and this second book doesn’t disappoint. A police procedural, mystery, thriller, book. Jo and her partner Bob, are called out when a body is found in an office at Oakhurst University, it turns out to be the body of Professor Michael Wharton, as Jo and Bob interview colleagues, it seems that the professor wasn’t very well liked, one young colleague had accused the Professor of sexual assault, another professor didn’t get tenure because of Professor Wharton, and a student lost his financial aid after he failed one of the professors classes. This means there are plenty of suspects to be investigated. But before they have even really started the investigation, and within the span of three days they have two more bodies, could these deaths be linked with the Professors? Jo and Bob are put under a lot of pressure by their boss to solve these cases. With lots of twists and turns, revenge within the academic circles, job loss, infidelity and the stealing of intellectual property, there is plenty going on. But who is the serial killer? Will he or she strike again? Jo has the added pressure of having to go home to see her dad who has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, and she realises how important family is and wants to spend as much time as she can with her family. Which is not easy keeping everyone happy it is at times a juggling act. She also has a lover who would like to take care of her but Jo doesn’t want to become reliant on a man. It’s great to see the characters growing, and dynamics of Jo and Bobs relationship as partners on the job. I look forward to more of these books in the future. Thank you to netgalley and bookouture for an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest,fair and unbiased review.

    Taken to the Grave

    This book was a thrill to read . Kept me guessing right to the end. A great mystery book which grabs from the beginning to end. Kept me up past my bedtime, didn't want to put it down.

    Outstanding!

    An impressive read following M.M. Chouinard's recent début - The Dancing Girls. Over a timespan of three days there has been two murders linked to Oakhurst University and a Tarot card has been left near to both bodies. As the body count continues to rise, Detective Jo Fournier and her fellow worker, Detective Bob Arnett must sift through all of the evidence and eliminate a number of potential suspects. In addition, Jo’s father faces a health battle that brings Jo and her estranged sister together, but this is not without its own set of issues, with past conflicts being brought to the surface and overflowing. In this second book of the series, I loved learning more about Jo's background. For me, she makes for a near-perfect main character with her inner strengths and vulnerability. Although not without flaws, she showed empathy with the suspects and the bond she had with her partner was rather entertaining. I thought they made the perfect team and Jo's relentlessness in ensuring justice is served was an admirable quality. I adored Michelle M. Chouinard’s overall style and the wonderfully thrilling plot in this tale of university politics, sexual harassment and murder. Told from both Jo’s and the killer’s perspectives, the chapters from the killer were grossly disturbing for their lack of emotion. I really appreciated Chouinard's ability to not only draw me into the story immediately, but also keep me enthralled until the very last page. The level of tension that built throughout the story was noteworthy. I also marvelled at the way she made me think I had everything worked out, only to find that I was totally off the mark! For me, Taken to the Grave has is all - a plot chock full of mystery, suspense with so many twists, as well as family drama, characters that are real and believable and a reveal that blew me away. Michelle M. Chouinard may well become one of my favourite authors and I can’t wait to see what's next in this magnificent series. I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel, at my own request, from Bookouture via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.

    A nice addition to a terrific series.

    Detective Jo Fournier is finding rather strange clues. When she happens upon a dead body, a tarot card was found. This happens again and again, and each card says something a bit different, leaving clues for Jo and her team to figure out. Before long, there are a total of four victims, all found with different tarot cards. Furthermore, as Jo digs deeper into the murders, she gets news about her father and is torn between the fact that he needs her. What is Jo going to do? No doubt she doesn't want yet another victim, but she has a responsibility towards her father. In this fast-paced book by M.M. Chouinard, there was no shortage of clues, twists and turns. This is the second book in the Detective Jo Fourier series. This was an intriguing book, especially as the message in the tarot cards was offering sharp clues for Jo. This is a great series that dealt with both Jo's professional and personal lives. I loved that I was kept guessing until the end. I am looking forward to reading much more in this series, and would love to learn a bit more about Jo and her past. Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC to review. This is my honest opinion.
