New Release and Review of A Grave Calling by Wendy Roberts

There had been no attempt to bury the dead girl, naked except for the white ribbon tied to her wrist
Twenty-five-year-old Julie Hall has a unique ability: when she takes up a dowsing rod, she finds not water but bodies. To Julie, it’s a curse, not a gift, and one she rarely uses—she prefers her quiet life in a trailer, with her grandfather and her dog for company. But when FBI agent Garrett Pierce shows up at her door seeking help with a case, she has no choice but to assist with their search.
Three girls are still missing. The killer is still out there. As bodies are discovered and more girls disappear, the case becomes almost more than Julie can bear. And when the killer turns his sights toward her, even her growing relationship with the protective Agent Garrett may not be enough to save her.

A Grave Calling by Wendy Roberts
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Quirky suspense with dark elements. It’s always a treat to find a new author that writes a unique story.

Julie Hall had a childhood filled with abuse from her grandmother, made worse by the gift she had for finding dead bodies with a pair of dowsing rods. Only returning to the home she grew up in after her grandmother dies, she’s content with just working at a gas station and looking after her Grandfather. She’s helped law enforcement in the past to find missing people but is surprised when the FBI knocks on her door needing help to locate the body of a woman killed by a suspected serial killer. She is just one of 3 recently taken and they need Julie’s help in hopes that finding the bodies they will find clues and evidence against the killer.

Julie had more than her share of bad things happen to her in life and even let them for a while put her on a self medicating path. Her gift was something I’ve never seen used before and held me captivated until the shocking ending.

Looking for a dark, edgy suspense different from the rest – give A Grave Calling a try..
