She and her dowsing rods are well known for her ability to locate bodies even if they have been dead for many years.Her last job took her back to her hometown and she's been recovering since them. She feels the time is right to jump back in and go to work. Her boyfriend, FBI Agent Garrett Pierce, doesn't agree ... but he's got his own problems with a case.Garrett has been acting really strange .. at least for him. He doesn't stay in touch with Julie the way he always has ... doesn't return her calls or texts ... and when he's home, he's secretive and a little bit snarly. When he disappears for days on end, she really gets worried.Julie feels she has no option available except to try to find him. What she ultimately discovers is far worse than she imagined and now there are several lives on the line ...including hers.Although this is third in a series, A GRAVE PERIL reads well as a stand alone as it focuses more on the relationship between Julie and Garrett and not her body-finding abilities. There are just a few small references touching on her personal background and why she is the way she is. However, the reader can still enjoy the first two books. This is well -written with credible characters. Her best friend, Tracy, is like Peter Pan .. she's a little ditzy, but she will do anything she can for Julie. Julie has a dog that Tracy is deathly afraid of and a cat named Fluffy that was Julie's mom's cat ... and Fluffy does not like Julie at all. It's all these little details that make this such an interesting read.Many thanks to the author / Carina Press / Netgalley for the advanced digital copy of this paranormal mystery. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.

But… it’s a nice house and she’s starting to feel safe there; plus she knows her aversion to having people around is one of the many issues she needs to work on.After the truly harrowing events of the last case she worked on (detailed in book two, A Grave Search), Julie is taking a break from her business – Divine Reunions – to recuperate, but lately has been feeling ansty about getting back to work.  Her inbox is overflowing with requests for help finding the bodies of loved ones from people desperate for closure and to find and bury their dead, and Julie decides it’s time to ease herself back in.  She’ll take on a request she received a few months back from a mother desperate to find the body of the son who went missing while out hiking in the forest near Spokane.  Garrett – who has been away from home working a case for the last week – isn’t wild about the idea of Julie taking on this job without him there to support her, but she agrees to take a friend with her when she drives out to Hog Lake, and that eases his mind a little.You can read the rest of this review at All About Romance .

    A Grave Peril is the third book in the Bodies of Evidence series but it absolutely can be read as a standalone. There was enough information given in this story that I did not feel that I was missing something having not read the prequels but it was exciting enough that I really want to go back and read the first two books!

There was enough information given in this story that I did not feel that I was missing something having not read the prequels but it was exciting enough that I really want to go back and read the first two books! This novel was more focused on Julie and Garrett’s relationship and had less to do with her body finding ability but I found it to be quite exciting and action packed.Julie had been through the wringer in the last book and had needed to take some time away from using her dowsing rods. This story starts off after she had taken a break and was looking to start with some easy jobs. She was just feeling her way back into a few cases and enjoying the start of her co-habitation with Garrett. Both activities gave her happiness and anxiety at the same time. Things were supposed to be chill for Julie but Garrett, under pressure in a new investigation, he started to act peculiar and very distant.Given Julie’s past, Garrett’s behavior was not welcomed and she did not know what to think of his behaviors but was just trying to trust him, anyway. When Garrett went missing with no explanation, it rankled Julie just a bit. When it became clear, though, that there was an element of danger involved, Julie took it upon herself to do whatever she could to try and find Garrett because that is what he would have done for her. With no idea whom to trust or what to believe, Julie had nowhere to turn but she didn’t let that stop her from trying to bring her man home.I liked Julie’s character, she had a ton of tenacity. This was my first impression of Garrett and it was not the best impression but I will hold off judgement on him as it was not his finest hour. I am so hoping that there will be more books to come because this book was such a fun read for me and this is a series I will want to continue. Of course, that is after I go back and read the first two books 😊. I am also hoping that in the next book there is more time spent with Julie exploring her gifts and solving a mystery or two. This review is based on a complimentary book I received from NetGalley. It is an honest and voluntary review. The complimentary receipt of it in no way affected my review or rating.Find this review and more at The Genre Minx Book Reviews

Something to do with his latest case at the bureau.While I can understand that maybe, sometimes, this kind of plot is needed for the couple to move forward, but it always annoys me when the hero decides to go MIA, and keeps the secret from the heroine. Especially in this case, when the reason behind Garrett’s pushing Julie back is because his ex-brother-in-law is involved. I felt like there was still a LOT of things for Julie and Garrett to work on … their age-gap, his hints and nudges of them getting married while Julie isn’t sure about marriage at all, Garrett’s being too protective sometimes, and of course Julie’s traumatic past which influences her feeling uneasy with getting friendly with neighbors or getting close with a girl-friend. Then the author decides to thrown Garrett being tight-lipped and it bothers me a lot.I still enjoyed it most of the times – despite her prickliness towards her friendly neighbors or towards Tracey, who wants to be her BFF, I think Julie has the potential for investigation, helped with her ability, of course. I hope Garrett realizes that Julie is not someone he should just leave in blind because of her gender or her past or because she’s not an agent. I look forward to book #4 … and I hope by then, these two have become a stronger unit.The ARC is provided by the publisher via Netgalley for an exchange of fair and honest review.

It gives some much needed background info. I'll start with my bad first, I didn't care for the fact that this one was more so about her sleuthing on her own (trying to save her FBI agent boyfriend from a deadly drug cartel) than it was her getting tangled up in a dowsing case. There was plenty of that which was great, but I think I prefer the mysteries revolve around those as opposed to her playing her in a different sense. I also just plain don't care for her as a character. I grew up with an alcoholic, I absolutely understand the psychosis around that, I can empathize with the struggle. I'm tired of it being mentioned 50+ times in a short book. I get it, I got it. She's not a nice person, she's mean, she's bitter, she's angry, and she doesn't get enough therapy. Self help books and meditation only take you so far. She needs deep therapy. She's finally surrounded by caring people and doesn't seem to put forth the necessary effort to keep them. The good things? It was a really good book, I finished it in a day and I didn't want to put it down. I love her gift, I love her quirky friend Tracey, I love her neighbors, her dog, and I enjoy Garret. The story was engaging, the plot moved quickly and the ending was the best. I felt like Julie truly grew in this book more than she has the entire series. That she understands her feelings and emotions better. I felt as though the ending covered all the loose threads while leaving room for the next installment. So worth picking up!!

A missing hiker. With Garrett out on a case she turns to Tracey to help her.Even though her first case back went smoothly, doesn’t mean her life is back on track. She still has major trust issues and those issues are made worse as Garrett starts displaying some odd behavior. He is keeping secrets and Julie is not liking it one bit.Things start to get worse when Garrett disappears and leaving behind cryptic messages. “Trust no one”. With no one to turn to she begins to worry and takes on her own investigation into his disappearance. Things start heating up and danger lurks around every corner. Will Julie find Garrett, before someone turns up dead?This book really focuses on the relationship between Garrett and Julie. It dives deep into it and shows all the cracks. Some of these cracks start to break open and Julie doesn’t know if love will be enough for them. She shows her vulnerability more in this book. All the healing she has done is shown, but she still struggles with several things. Mainly TRUST. With everything that is going on with Garrett, the trust they have built is tested and on thin ice, full of several fissure cracks.I really enjoy this series. Julie is a strong character. She has several issues and past horrors that make her the way she is, but yet she is stronger than most give her credit for. She doesn’t see this for herself, naturally. But her strength is there.Wendy has created a unique story line with the Bodies of Evidence series. Her characters are strong and supportive. The cases are unique and full of twists to keep you guessing. I really love this series and can’t wait to see how our two lovebirds move past this.If you love a bit of the unknown and unique paranormal with a twist of mystery and a dash of romance, then this series is for you. Please read them in order or you may not understand the characters without the back story. It is an excellent read and I guarantee you will enjoy it.*ARC provided by Carina Press & Netgalley.

Wanting to get her “toes wet” and try her hand at dowsing for the dead again after a longish cut she heads out with a friend and has success. She does a bit more looking for a few other bodies in this book but she also worries about Garrett and eventually starts looking for him following what she believes are clues to his whereabouts. With her friend Tracey along to help at times, a crazy cat and Wookie her rottweiler she deals with one problem after another as she tries to find out whether or not Garrett is alright.This is book deals more with Julie’s search for Garrett and his FBI work than it does with finding the dead...although there is a bit of that, too. It will be interesting to see where the author goes with this series next...and I am eager to read book four when it is ready.Thank you to NetGalley and Harlequin-Carina Press for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4-5 Stars

For a normal person those seem like simple everyday things. But for a woman with Julie's abusive childhood and her daily struggle to stay sober they are stress inducing. That stress is added to when her FBI live in boyfriend Garrett Pierce starts acting out of the normal and is being very secretive about his current case and is gone more than he is around. Because of his love for Julie he is trying to keep her as far away from the case he is working on not realizing that this sets of her insecurities and makes her want to dig in and find out what he is hiding. And when he goes missing Julie wont back down on finding her man. Julie is on her own most of the book and even though the thought of having a drink comes up every time she get stressed she resists and is growing in her recovery both mentally and in her sobriety. There are plenty of humorous moments through out along the suspense that ramps up to edge of your seat peril. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and hope there are many more to come.

    Julie is finally ready to get back into dowsing for bodies (yay!). She’s got a few good cases to get her feet wet, and she’s feeling pretty good about it. At the same time, her FBI boyfriend Garrett is in a bit of trouble. He was immediately removed from an important case and it leaves Julie suspicious.

Despite saying he’s off the case, Garrett goes missing a few times without leaving notes or having a phone for Julie to get in contact with him. She’s now more suspicious than ever. He’s even come home pretty beaten up and hasn’t mentioned a word in edge-wise as to how it happened. Is he trying to work the case himself? Is he in contact with his ex-brother-in-law? Was he ever really off the case? What does this all mean for Julie and Garrett’s relationship since the ex-wife’s family is back in the picture?I think this was my favorite book of the series yet! If you liked Verity by Colleen Hoover, you will enjoy this book. The story line isn’t the same, but the writing and the suspense is similar (in a good and unique way). I read the entire book in one sitting, it’s that good. I was on the edge of my seat, biting my nails, trying to think of what Garrett was doing and what he was hiding from Julie. The great thing about this series is that you can jump in with any book and not feel lost. I really don’t like when I have to read a previous novel to feel caught up in a story. That’s not the case here. Yes, it helps to know where Julie’s past and how much she has grown since the first book, but it isn’t needed to enjoy this book. I could kind of guess where the mystery was heading mid-way through, but it didn’t keep me from loving the book. I can’t wait for book four!5/5 StarsThank you Wendy for sending me a copy in exchange for my honest review!

To be honest, I would have preferred her dowsing for bodies instead of tracking down her boyfriend in an overly dramatic way, but having to deal with what Wendy Roberts wrote, I trudged on to the end. Apparently, the drug cartel does not like it when people get in the way of a drug shipment and since they have gone to great lengths to guarantee that the authorities do not find the date of their new delivery, they are not going to tolerate a nosey girlfriend getting in the way. Garrett had left messages and avoided all contact, but no, Julie cannot leave well enough alone and it is not until everyone’s life is in danger before the truth comes out and their relationship is left in tatters. It is sad that when a series, which started out with such promise, has been reduced to my only liking the dog. Wendy Roberts -- grow this character up and bring her back to searching for bodies.

This series isn't like any other that I have read before and it made a big impression on me. I need a fourth book now! Julie is a character who is far from perfect and I think that's why people who read this series will like her. She has experienced horrible things but I admire that she didn't just sit down and give up.

This third entry in the series continues her growth, as we see her use her strength to try to save the man she loves from danger. I've also liked following along on the mysteries that Julie has helped solve, often with the help of her FBI boyfriend Garrett Pierce. Garrett has been very supportive and caring toward Julie, but occasionally he has almost seemed too perfect to me, which was one of the things that gave this book a unique feel from the two that came before, in that we get to see some of Garrett's flaws. The mystery was very fast paced and engaging, and I can't wait to read the next entry in the series!Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for providing a free copy of this book for my honest review.

    We are on the third book in this series, and I think this is the best one so far. Normally, I read just mystery or fantasy books with a paranormal element in them. I started this series because of the way the protagonist finds dead people by dowsing. However, with this third book, the paranormal element has taken a backseat to the rest of the story. And, that’s just great, because I couldn’t put this book down.

However, with this third book, the paranormal element has taken a backseat to the rest of the story. And, that’s just great, because I couldn’t put this book down. Julie is still in a very dark place, and when Garrett disappears, she must find him while keeping her demons (metaphoric, not literal as it’s not that kind of paranormal book) at bay. Julie is really coming out of her shell, and I’m glad to see her letting people in her life. Maybe very reluctantly, but she’s dealing with everything slowly but surely. I do admit to being a little upset with how Garrett treats her at the end, but I think he has issues he hasn’t dealt with either. I loved this book, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for Julie, Garrett, Tracey, et. al. As an aside, I love Tracey; she’s helping Julie come out and enjoy life and maybe start leaving the pain behind. I highly recommend this book! I was provided the e-book which I voluntarily reviewed.

    Ebook Grade: C+/B-Not a review, just some thoughts for personal reference. Spoilers. I read the first three books in this series one after the other. They were like potato chips. But I have some thoughts. --Why is Julie so stupid? Seriously, she might as well run around with a "kill me" sign on her.--And Garrett's still being an ass.--A dozen bodies in a garden shed are going to stink to high heaven. Everyone in that swanky neighborhood would have smelled them.--Julie went through more vehicles Ebook Grade: C+/B-Not a review, just some thoughts for personal reference. Spoilers.

She got an inheritance--was it really that big?--Lots of eating. Stopping at diners, fast food, Starbucks, convenience stores, etc.--Saddled up does not mean the same thing as sidled up.--Tracey's sweet, but she's getting on my nerves.Sigh. I'll still read the next book.

    A Grave Peril beings with Julie finally getting back to work. She's happy to be back to work, and a bit nervous as well. But, Garrett is acting weird, and when he goes missing, Julie must do whatever she can to figure out what is going on before it is too late. This book was absolutely amazing! I went through a ton of emotions in this one. Julie was great, I totally felt for her in this one. She went through a lot, and I totally hated Garrett. I thought he was a major jerk, and I feel like Julie A Grave Peril beings with Julie finally getting back to work. She's happy to be back to work, and a bit nervous as well.

I thought he was a major jerk, and I feel like Julie should have truly made him pay, it was such crap. I thought this one was amazing, and I can't wait for more.

    Where has Garrett gone? Why isn't he answering Julie's texts? Julie finds bodies (and drinks); Garrett is her FBI SA boyfriend. He's a lot older than she is but which one of them has the older soul? I read this as a standalone so unlike some other reviewers, I wasn't bothered by what I gather was the push to the background of Julie's dowsing for bodies. It's really about these two characters and their relationship, which was fine with me as an intro to the series. Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC Where has Garrett gone?

    I loved it! I've been patiently waiting for this to be released since I finished the previous one in the series. I am fascinated with the idea of using dowsing rods to find the lost dead. The characters and the mystery are great. Just when I thought it was solved there was more! I enjoyed this book a lot and driving around with Julie in her Jeep to different locales was a lot of fun.

    It took a long time to get to the meat of this story. I haven't read the previous books in the series but the long lead up to the story gives you plenty of background on the main character. I didn't like Garrett so much, it seemed like all he did was yell at Julie. #AgravePeril #NetGalley

    I love the uniqueness of this series. I think that there were a few 'what do you think you're doing' moments I kind of yelled at my kindle, because lets face it, Julie can be a bit reactionary without thinking things through. This is a series I highly, highly recommend reading in order.
