My mom recently read one of the Temperance Brennnan series and recommended it to me. I'm now hooked. I've read the first two novels and both have been great thrillers. They remind me a little bit of Sue Grafton's alphabet series. Strong female protagonist who is easy to identify with and like. I'm in a patter where I read one of Kathy Reichs Temperance Brennan novel, read something else and then go back to Tempe. Definitely recommend!

I wasn't all that keen on continuing this series after reading the first book. I love the TV show and mystery/thriller novels, but the first book in the series just seemed a little out there to me. This book definitely saved the series for me and I've continued to read beyond book 2 since finishing it. The story is a little unbelievable, but it was a quick, easy, fun read.

This book is for any Bones/ Brennan fan. Brennan begins her quest to try and connect what seems to be random killings. No one believes that there is any connection and Brennan must follow the occult to try and connect these murders. While trying to piece things together, Brennan must deal with her love for her ex and the love of Ryan and also keep tabs on her mischevious sister Harry. The book keeps fans wanting more.

Death Du Jour is a very good book just like the first book in the series, Deja Dead. Death Du Jour has a very interesting plot where it is hard to guess who is involved and to the extent of their involvement until the end where everything is explained. It is very exciting and it keeps you on your toes. This book even delves a little deeper into the chemistry between Temperance Brennan and Andrew Ryan the Montreal police detective, which is good because in my opinion, every good book needs a little romance, right? All in all Death Du Jour is a great book and I recommend it to people who like murders and mystery, or even those CSI TV shows.

BOTTOM-LINE: Let down from the first one . PLOT OR PREMISE: Twisting sub-plots make it hard to describe as one common theme, but in essence, Dr. Temperance Brennan is back with a problem -- dead people, including babies, are popping up all over the place as a result of a religious cult. Even her sister gets involved, not to mention a young female relative (can we say Kay Scarpetta's niece?). In fact, the majority of this book comes even closer to a rip-off of that other series, but closer to the lousy writing near the end of the Scarpetta series than the tight stories that launched the female coroner genre. The story starts in Montreal, and then moves to Carolina, and then eventually back again to the Montreal area. Unlike the first book, you never get the same sense of place. . WHAT I LIKED: A difficult question...the story is interesting, just with a lot of holes and loose threads. One really good thing that is missing from this story that was in the previous one is the removal of the francophone / anglophone dynamics, that is not only annoying, but also inaccurate for the timeframe. . WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: The list is growing...First, and most important, I hate the way it mirrors the Kay Scarpetta stories, essentially ripping-off the work that has gone before. Second, Reichs has a really bad habit -- trying to build suspense and mystery by an old trick of hiding certain things. At least two major "clues" in the sub-stories are not revealed, instead having Temperance kind of taunt the reader in a I-know-but-the-reader-won't-until-I-feel-like-revealing-it-to-them. None of the "clues" are that big, nor are they worth waiting for, and the reader is just left feeling irritated and cheated by the story. Either the waiting has to be worth it, by making the news so unbelievable that you say "WOW!", or you have to play fair with the reader and share the news as it comes along. Finally, I have to say that not only is this book not particularly great, it is a real let-down from the first one. It reads like Reichs threw it together from two separate stories, and with a lot of extra characters thrown in, none of which are any more than wooden extras. . DISCLOSURE: I received no compensation, not even a free copy, in exchange for this review. I am not personal friends with the author, nor do I follow her on social media.

Agai, Kathy Reichs has written a very enthralling book and keeps you tense throughout the book. The ending is surprising and feel everyone should get this book.
