The Crossing Places by Elly Griffiths
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Other readers freaked about this author's use of the present tense in this first of a mystery series, but I didn't mind it all! Yes, Ruth is a tad stereotypical--40ish, single, overweight English forensic anthropologist, but I enjoyed her off-the-cuff remarks and confusing situations. She's not the best at common sense decisions, even if she's a bone expert. I'll add Book #2 to my To Read list for the next time I need a quick British mystery with a female-lead.
