    Beneath the Ashes by Dea Poirier is a who done it mystery thriller with a couple of intriguing twists throughout the book This book also captures police procedure and has the reader follow through as the case unfolds While the book itself isn t overly complicated with the who done it , it isn t a super easy conclusion either I enjoyed trying to figure it out as everything unfolded The characters are one of my favorite parts of this book Poirier has added just the right amount of supporti Beneath the Ashes by Dea Poirier is a who done it mystery thriller with a couple of intriguing twists throughout the book This book also captures police procedure and has the reader follow through as the case unfolds While the book itself isn t overly complicated with the who done it , it isn t a super easy conclusion either I enjoyed trying to figure it out as everything unfolded The characters are one of my favorite parts of this book Poirier has added just the right amount of supporting characters to really make things interesting She has given the supporting characters just enough details and intrigue that keeps me wanting to knowAs in her previous story, Detective Calderwood continues to be a strong female detective who is determined to solve the case Noah, Claire s significant other is givenback story and plays a part in helping to solve the current case There is also some tension that arises which adds to the intrigue Poirier gives Roxie, Claire s best friend and former partner a staring role that sets the future for additional Calderwood cases and plot development.I would have to say that the biggest downside to this book is the who done it character seemed to not be as developed as I felt they should have been which makes me wonder if originally the bad guy was going to be someone else.I look forward to continuing the Calderwood cases Thank you to the publisher as I received an advanced reading copy of this book in return for an honest review

    Beneath the Ashes is the second in Poirier s Calderwood series Detective Claire Calderwood is investigate a murder in a nearby community across the island where she lives When a girl s body is discovered tied to the bed of a hotel room and covered with ashes from an ash can There are no witnesses and the efficacy of the few clues has been diluted with DNA from multiple cigarettes Claire must handle her past the death of her sister while figuring out who killed this girl When another girl Beneath the Ashes is the second in Poirier s Calderwood series Detective Claire Calderwood is investigate a murder in a nearby community across the island where she lives When a girl s body is discovered tied to the bed of a hotel room and covered with ashes from an ash can There are no witnesses and the efficacy of the few clues has been diluted with DNA from multiple cigarettes Claire must handle her past the death of her sister while figuring out who killed this girl When another girl is found, Claire is faced tracking down one very smart serial killer.The pacing of the novel is fast and intense enough that I read it in one sitting The police procedural aspect seems accurate Claire is tough enough to be a cop, but with enough flaws to be human Though this is the second in the series and I hadn t read 1 Next Girl to Die , I was able to read Beneath the Ashes without difficulty My only complaint was that Noah, Claire s boyfriend, isn t well realized, but that may be because he was well delineated in book one The New England winter is almost a character in itself This book might do well read in conjunction with The Winter Sister by Megan Collins Both books deal with the loss of a sister via murder, but the The Winter Sister is told from the POV of a civilian while Beneath the Ashes is told from the police POV

    When girls are murdered in this small town community Claire is called to duty as a lead detective Each girls death is a reminder of her sister s murder Claire is determined and dedicated to this case It s personal on a level that only Claire and Noah understand Overall I enjoyed following Claire around this small town interviewing individuals As a seasoned homicide detective Claire is well respected These books are part of the Calderwood Cases series, yet they can be read as a stand alone When girls are murdered in this small town community Claire is called to duty as a lead detective Each girls death is a reminder of her sister s murder Claire is determined and dedicated to this case It s personal on a level that only Claire and Noah understand Overall I enjoyed following Claire around this small town interviewing individuals As a seasoned homicide detective Claire is well respected These books are part of the Calderwood Cases series, yet they can be read as a stand alone I sensed that this was an extension from another book with a few references mentioned about her sister and Noah I thought the killer was careless with his actions making it too easy for Claire to piece together this crime I m not sure Claire would ve succeeded had the killer not been so impatient with his eagerness to kill Dea is a tease giving you just enough information to bait the reader In romance books this is referred to as angst building Not sure what to reference it in a homicide case I like how vulnerable and uncertain Claire is in her relationship with Noah, yet assertive and certain in her position as a homicide detective

    I read the first book in this series and loved it and was so excited to see a sequel Unfortunately the second book was not as good as the first I like the characters Claire and Noah but the story line for this book was honestly boring I really didn t get into this book till I was almost in the middle of the book I hate giving bad reviews but I really prefer a book that keeps me reading into the night If the author does write another book I will watch for it because the first book in this se I read the first book in this series and loved it and was so excited to see a sequel Unfortunately the second book was not as good as the first I like the characters Claire and Noah but the story line for this book was honestly boring I really didn t get into this book till I was almost in the middle of the book I hate giving bad reviews but I really prefer a book that keeps me reading into the night If the author does write another book I will watch for it because the first book in this series was great and the writing is good So crossing my fingers the next book is just as great as the first
