Death du Jour - Temperance Brennan, Bk 2

In the bitter cold of a Montreal winter, Tempe Brennan is digging for a corpse buried more than a century ago.

These books are nothing like the TV series, although I now enjoy both. I like that there is a French connection - I get to read the French and know what it says before the translation - although there is not too much French. The mystery is great - sure there is murder and mayhem - but it is more about putting the pieces together than gore. You also get to learn about a lot science and procedure - very interesting stuff, especially when it is not in a textbook!

Although the story was very good for this one, it seems a little far fetched that she just happens to find bodies on vacation that just happen to be linked to crimes in Quebec. Still looking forward to reading the rest of the series though.

Dr. Brennan is engaged to retrieve the bones of a nun, who may soon be made a saint. While on that assignment she is asked to work on identiying the remains of the victims of a house fire. Two of the victims are children. How does this fire relate to a skeleton found on a private primate reserve located off the coast of North Carolina? Excellent read.

This is the first book I've read by Kathy Reichs, and I really liked it. I was kind of sickened by some of the morbid descriptions of the dead characters in the story, but all of that adds to the story's realistic vibe. I like Tempe's character, and I will probably read the rest of the series. The French was kind of annoying, but I don't think it hindered the story in any way. Great read.

Dr. Temperance Brennan uses her forensic skills to investigate a series of unrelated events - horrifying deaths in a Quebec fire & discoveries in North Carolina with a showdown in Montreal. I enjoyed the 1st book in the series more but in this book there seems to be too many plot lines. A relationship with Det. Andy Ryan seems to be starting. I look forward to the next book in order to see how this interest progresses. Recommended.

Not quite as good at Deja Dead but still a book that is hard to put down

Another page turner! Love these books!

I loved the flow of the story right up until the last 15 pages. The plot has lots of twists and turns, different places and characters that all fit together in the end. The problem is that it feels like the author got to a certain point, realized she had written enough pages and then jammed everything in to bring it all together. It should have been done in about 50 more pages.

Series mystery about Dr. Temperance Brennan, Forensic Anthropologist for the Province of Quebec, digs for a corpse, but finds something else instead. Where is Sister Elisabeth Nicolet, dead for over a century and now a candidate for sainthood?

Disappointing. Poorly plotted and not very well written. The reader was, well, uninspired. Seemed like she was just trying to get through the task. But the whole book seemed that way. This was my first book by this author and it will be my last. Boo !

I enjoy the Temperance series. I am a huge Patricia Cornwell fan and this is absolutely just as good. Yes, it's technical at times, but I eat that up! It's a great book and a great series.
