"Full of twists and turns  . . . will keep readers guessing until the end." - Killer Nashville Book of the Day
Praise for Inherit the Bones
"Presenting investigations into two different worlds gives Littlejohn, in her mystery debut, an opportunity to show her skills in drawing real characters and presenting them from the viewpoint of her appealing protagonist." - Kirkus Reviews
"Littlejohn writes with assurance and skill. The story's plotting is sure-footed, and the characters are well developed and believable." - Library Journal (starred review) 
" . . . the charming setting, engaging characters, and adroit pacing will keep readers turning the pages." -Publishers Weekly 
"I couldn't put down Inherit the Bones. Small town Colorado police detective Gemma Monroe is a human and fallible heroine I can't wait to meet again, and Littlejohn's prose is lyrical and gripping - the book is a sure bet for one of the finest debut novels of the year." - Deborah Crombie, author of the Duncan Kincaid/Gemma Jones mystery series
"If you only read one debut mystery this year, make it this one. Inherit the Bones is that good. Compelling writing, a stunning setting in a Colorado ski town, a plot that twists with surprises and a police deputy who happens to be six-months pregnant - I loved all of it." - Margaret Coel, author of The Man Who Fell From the Sky
