New York Times Bestselling Author Wendy Corsi Staub revisits Mundy’s Landing—a small town with a blood-soaked past.

The town of Mundy’s Landing was founded on a horrifying secret, but stark white bones of the dead never lie…

“We shall never tell.” Spurred by the cryptic phrase in a centuries-old letter, Emerson Mundy travels to her ancestral hometown to trace her past. In Mundy’s Landing, she connects with long lost relatives—and a closet full of skeletons going back centuries.

In the year since former NYPD Detective Sullivan Leary solved the historic Sleeping Beauty Murders, she—like the village itself—has made a fresh start. But someone has unearthed blood-drenched secrets in a disembodied skull, and is hacking away at the Mundy family tree, branch by branch…

UNBELIEVABLE!!!! In BONE WHITE, the 3rd book in the series of Mundy's Landing, we return a year after the Sleeping Beauty Murders were solved. But there are more secrets in this quaint town including a suicide or was it murder? What I love about Mr. Staub's books is that there are multiple mysteries interweaved into the story and this book did not disappoint. Emerson Mundy, after her father's death, travels from CA to NY to find out about her history after her father makes a deathbed confession and a secret that should never be told. And then there is Aurora Abrams, curator of the Mundy Museum, who is holding a secret from the 1666's of the Mundy settlers who also made a pact to never let a secret be known. The ending culminates in an OMG didn't see that one coming!!!!! A definite 5 star read!

It is a year after the Sleeping Beauty Murders and everything seems to have calmed down in the little town of Mundy’s Landing. Then Emerson Mundy shows up with some old letters that she has inherited. Emerson is looking into the history of her family. But this is just the beginning. Ora Abrams, the curator of the Mundy’s Landing Historical Society has a girl’s skull that has been passed along through her family. Ora decides that she wants it looked at to learn how the girl died. Sully Leary is adjusting to life in Mundy’s Landing when she is surprised by her former partner Stockton Barnes. He says he is just looking for a place to crash but he is acting strange and might be dragging both of them into something. Finally, Roy Nowak is coming to Mundy’s Landing. Roy is Emerson’s fiancé and she has no idea that he is coming to town. Shortly after his arrival he is found dead. Is it a suicide or is there a new killer in town? This is a great mystery. There were three different stories that converge on Mundy’s Landing. I loved reading about the history of this town and it seems that someone is bound and determined to end the Mundy line. And Ora with a skull, CREEPY!!! I have not read the other books in this series. Bone White could be read as a standalone book but I think the background of the other two books would add to the story. This book had three separate parts that come together at the end and there was a good mystery along with all the drama of Mundy’s Landing. Overall I really liked this book and I would be happy to get the first two books to catch up on what I missed. I received Bone White from Partners in Crime Virtual Book Tours for Free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.

It starts with a note, “We Shall Never Tell.” Emerson, a Mundy family descendant, travels to Mundy’s Landing to discover what terrible secret from the families past has come back to haunt her and her relatives. It’s been a year since the Sleeping Beauty murders were solved and Sully has changed places, now working as a detective on Mundy’s Landing’s police force. She’s looking forward to quieter times, but it isn’t long before she’s smack dab in the middle of another murder investigation. Someone’s determined to killed the Mundy family, one by one. On top of that, Sully’s old partner, Stockton Barnes, shows up on her doorstep looking for a place to crash. He’s evasive about why he’s there and Sully can tell he’s in trouble. And something weird is happening with Ora Abrams, curator of the Mundy’s Landing Historical Society. It gave me some eerie vibes. As much as I enjoyed the other books in the series, this one is my favorite. From the 1600’s to the present, and from the West coast to the East, it’s a convoluted series of events and crimes. There are some new characters to contend with along with some favorites. The author fleshes them out and tangles their lives together. It’s up to you to sort out who did what, and she doesn’t make it easy. Numerous plots abound in this mystery and it’s a race to the finish line, with no easy answers and plenty of intrigue. And you won’t see the end coming. I couldn’t read this fast enough and wished it were longer.
