Author : Lisa Regan
Title : A Mother’s Grave
Series : Detective Josie Quinn #3
Pages : 346
Publisher : Bookouture
Publication date : July 19, 2018


When two young boys discover human bones buried beneath a tree in a trailer park, Detective Josie Quinn races to join her team at the scene. She used to play in those woods as a child, happier outside and away from her abusive mother, Belinda Rose.

Josie’s past crashes into her present when a rare dental condition confirms the bones belong to a teenage foster-child who was murdered thirty years ago. A girl named Belinda Rose…

Josie hasn’t seen her mother in years but, with an undeniable connection between her mother and the dead girl, does she dare try to track her down?

Just as Josie gets closer to uncovering a secret that will shatter her world forever, another body is uncovered. It’s suddenly clear that someone very close to Josie will stop at nothing to keep the truth buried forever.

As she battles the demons from her past, can Josie stop this killer before another precious life is taken?


Bloody hell! This third instalment in the Josie Quinn series is just …. WOW! I don’t even know where to begin.

When human bones are discovered behind the local trailer park, little does Josie know her past is about to catch up with her. Dental records confirm the remains belong to a young girl who was murdered thirty years ago. Her name was Belinda Rose. But wait a minute, Josie’s mother was Belinda Rose, wasn’t she? Josie hasn’t seen her mother in years but it looks like she now has no choice but to track her down.

If you’ve been following this series from the start, then you already know little bits and pieces about Josie’s relationship with her mother but this time, we’re digging a helluva lot deeper. What follows is an intensely heartbreaking background story with the most sick, twisted and insanely disturbing mother ever!

To say this book is incredibly gripping would be an understatement. I raced through this as if my own life depended on it. I never quite knew what would happen next and this intricately woven plot kept me guessing until the end. With superb pace throughout, twists and turns, an unpredictable and dangerous psycho, nail-biting tension and flashback chapters that will pull at your heartstrings, A Mother’s Grave has everything I could possibly want in a fantastic detective story.

This is without a doubt the best one in the series yet. It has left me rather speechless and a tad discombobulated. If you like your crime fiction series with a fabulous female detective, you have to read this series! I can’t wait for the next one and so look forward to seeing where Lisa Regan takes Josie and her team next!

      Me too. Especially as it came after a few “meh” reads. I was starting to worry about my reading mojo 😂
