Nature of the Grave by Martha Reed

Review by Dawn Dowdle 

John and Sarah Jarad are newlywed's working on Nantucket.  She's an artist, and he's the local police lieutenant.  When John's great-uncle dies and leaves an unexpected bequest, Sarah begins to explore John's family history more deeply.  She discovers the unsolved disappearance of John's younger brother years ago. 

Everyone is surprised when out of nowhere, the long lost brother reappears.  Can this be?  Where was he?  How did he disappear?  There are so many unanswered questions. 

As John and Sarah try to answer those questions, they also have to deal with the bequest.  Could these things be related?  Can they uncover the truth without bringing more heartache to his mother?   

I had a hard time putting this book down.  I kept reading another chapter to find out what happened.  I really liked the characters and the setting.  This was one of the best books I've read in a long time.  I highly recommend it.  But be sure you have time to read when you start it, you won't want to put it down.  Other things will just have to wait!
