Bones of contention abound.
When skeletal remains are discovered on a small Maine island a forensic anthropologist, Lydia Muir, is sent to investigate. It's Lydia's job to determine whether the death happened long ago--or more recently. Stepping Stones Island sheriff, Wesley Grant, seems sure the murder didn't happen on his watch. But when Lydia uncovers the victim's identity, someone goes to great lengths to get Lydia off the case and off island. Wes vows to protect her, but is the handsome lawman holding something back? To help catch a killer, she'll have to trust him--or become the next victim.
