This is the sixth book in the Liv bergen series, and one I had accidentally missed, but as the last book sis coming out next month, I wanted to share this one with you!

Her boyfriend is dead and a grieving Liv is in no mood to solve a mystery. 

Liv has been forced to take a leave of absence from her job at the FBI following the tragic death of her love, Jack Linwood. She finds herself back home in Rapid City, South Dakota, far from her closest friend and colleague, Streeter Pierce, and her trusted dog, Beulah. 
Struggling with the risks and pressures of her career and the nostalgia of home, a heartbroken Liv questions whether or not she has made the right choices in life. 

As if that weren't enough, she finds herself sitting in a bar staring up into the faces of the bizarre wax heads of the infamous citizens of the city of Deadwood-where her bullheaded sister Agatha has dragged her to drink off her pain. When it seems Liv will at last be left alone to mourn in peace, a beloved friend of the Bergen family is beaten beyond recognition and left for dead. 

Liv is suddenly catapulted into the middle of an investigation of a hundred-year-old murder case and a dark and twisted, century-old family feud. Aided-and sometimes derailed-by her comical sisters, a police officer who doesn't trust her, a cryptic research paper, and a frightening and formidable motorcycle gang member, Liv must discover who beat her friend nearly to death before the perpetrator returns to finish the job and time runs out.



I had forgotten HOW much I loved this series! Liv is someone who could be your best friend, and her family is one you'd love to be part of. So when you take those two elements, and put her back in her 'stomping grounds' without the accruements of her current job (FBI), bot with the lessons learned there, you have the perfect setting for an interesting 'can you go home again?' scenario.

The book is fast paced and will keep you on your toes, as Liv matches wits not only with her sister's new boyfriend, but his boss, the Sheriff, and an unknown attempted killer. Can they finally work together to solve the mystery, or will family feuds and assumptions, keep the truth at bay, and harm lives? I read the book in 2 nights, as it's such a fast read, and can't wait to see what happens next in the seventh (and final installment, Jeremiah's Revenge!  if you;re looking for a series to binge on all Summer, this might be JUST the one you're looking for!
