A Wall Street Journal bestseller. Known is the fifth book in Bone Secrets, the multimillion-copy bestselling series. After a brutal snowstorm in the Cascade Mountains, Chris Jacobs discovers two things he never expected to see: the charred shell of a cabin, and Gianna Trask and her sixteen-year-old daughter huddled in an SUV, having barely escaped from their burning vacation rental. Still scarred from a childhood ordeal, Chris knows there's something sinister about the scene--it's the stench of burned flesh. Forced to wait out the blizzard in their rescuer's retreat, medical examiner Gianna Trask wonders if her hidden past has finally caught up with her. When a body is found in the destroyed cabin's ashes and a forest ranger is brutally murdered, both Gianna and Chris must confront their secrets if they want to escape the violent threat lurking outside. In the fifth book in the Bone Secrets series, Kendra Elliot leads readers on a dangerous, twisting journey of two lives forever changed by a fiery snowstorm in the mountains.… (lisätietoja)

Known
3.5 Stars

Chris Jacobs has finally found some peace after years of living in fear. When he stumbles across a burned out cabin in the woods and rescues Gianna Trask and her teenage daughter, Chris realizes that something sinister is at work. Can he and Gianna confront their darkest secrets in order to survive?

Series note: It is not necessary to read the entire series prior to this book as most of the stories are standalone. However, book #3, Buried, should be read first for the backstory on Chris's traumatic past.

The first half of the story is well constructed with several compelling twists and a sweet slow burn romance. Unfortunately, the initial build up ultimately devolves, and the last few chapters are rushed and anti-climactic as if Elliot needed to wrap it all up quickly.

While not all that original, the mystery is intriguing and the chapters from the villain's POV set a suitably malicious and creepy tone. This does not last, however, as his actions at the end are not consistent with his characterization throughout.

Similarly, the romance begins well as Chris and Gianna have lovely chemistry and the emotion between them builds slowly but surely. Then it all comes to a jarring halt and their HEA is presented as fait accompli with no connection between the beginning and the end.

In sum, Known is a solid ending to the Bone Secrets series, which has been entertaining overall. Looking forward to continuing with the spin-off series focusing on Detective Mason Callahan (who was sorely missed in this installment).

Known by Kendra Elliot is a 2016 Montlake publication.

This fifth installment in the 'Bone Secrets' series gives Chris Jacobs top billing, when he meets Gianna Trask and her teenage daughter, Violet, under extreme circumstances.

When Gianna’s cabin retreat catches fire, she and her daughter barely make it out alive. Chris also happens to be at his cabin at that time and brings the ladies to safety. But, he knows right away the burned-out shell of the cabin will reveal a very serious crime and that Gianna and Violet could be in danger.

Sure enough, it quickly becomes crystal clear that Gianna is a target…. But why?

I always enjoy Kendra Elliot’s romantic suspense novels, and this one is no exception. I love Chris Jacobs and was pleased to see him meet a kindred spirit in Gianna.

The story is fast paced, intense, suspenseful and emotional. The plotting is tight and unfortunately it captures the underbelly and greed of human nature all too well. It’s also a poignant family drama, with a bittersweet tone to it.

The action grabbed my attention right away and kept me riveted by building the suspense with perfect pacing, until it reaches a race against time drama that kept me glued to the pages.

The author did a terrific job of creating characters I could care about, and balanced the romance with the suspense exactly the way I like it.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book and will keep my eyes peeled for the next installment in this series!!

First I feel like I need to thank the author for giving us a characters story that I honestly was not expecting to ever get. To get the full effect of Chris story you need to have at least read Buried. The author does do a great job of explaining his back story during the book but it makes it all the more sweeter to finally see him get his own HEA in the romance department and to finally face some things that have still kept him from fully embracing the world.

During one of his self imposed isolation retreats to a cabin Chris saves the life of Gianna Trask and her teenage daughter after their cabin had caught fire. The mystery of the fire and an unidentified dead body in the fire starts of the trail of more bodies and the mystery of finding out who is killing people and why they could be after Gianna.

This was a good blend of suspense along with the slow revealing of the what/why was going on along with two people with tragic pasts realizing that they fill the voids in each others souls that they had resigned would also be there. ( )

4 "Past Tragedies Unite" Stars for the story and narration!

If you're like me, and love a good old-fashioned style suspense story with an overlay of romance to throw a little spice into the mystery, then you will not want to miss Known. Although this is the 5th book in the Bone Secrets Series, there is no need to have read or listened to the prior books as both the suspense and romantic sub-plots are fully contained within this audiobook. Further complementing this thought provoking suspense title is the above-average narration rendered by Tanya Eby, making this title a natural choice to choose in audiobook format.

Chris Jacobs knows what it is like to survive in the cross hairs of a killer. Having survived two horrific years at the hands of a serial killer, he learned many tricks to stay alive in unfathomable circumstances. So when Chris comes across Gianna Trask and her teenage daughter in the Cascade Mountains having just nearly escaped death under what appears to be suspicious circumstances, he knows he's stumbled onto a dangerous situation and is determined to see them to safety.

Gianna is no stranger to death (being a medical examiner) or tragedy (having lost her parents in a terrible accident when she was a child). She grew up with her uncle and he raised her to be tenacious and strong woman--personality traits that will come in handy as this story evolves.

As Chris and Gianna are forced to first wait out the storm in his cabin and then flee imminent perile they begin to bond and their shared tragic pasts as well as their individual synergistic natures draw each to the other. But will Chris be able to keep Gianna safe, much less pursue a happily ever after with her, with all the scars that no doubt remain from each of their terrible pasts?

Tanya Eby delivers a talented performance in Known. Although Ms. Eby generally produces only slightly nuanced differences between her characters of the same age and gender, this style worked well for this story which had few overlapping characters of a similar gender or age. I also had no trouble distinguishing Chris from Gianna, and didn't need to rely on dialogue tags. In fact, I was pleasantly pleased that Ms. Eby's voice for Chris sounded genuinely masculine, a feat that sometimes is difficult for female narrators.

Ms. Eby is also a well seasoned narrator with many titles under her belt leading to her natural affinity with delivery at an adequate pace to suit the mood of the scene being enacted. From the fast-paced action scenes, to the more introspective ones and suspense-filled moments, Ms. Eby adequately brought the scene to life in such a way that her portrayal enhanced the story's effect.

All in all, if you're looking for an action-filled, suspense title with a mild romance overlay, then I highly recommend giving Known a listen.

Known is book 5 in Kendra Elliot's romantic suspense series Bone Secrets. It can be read as a stand alone but Buried (book 3) provides the background to Chris' past so I'd probably read that one first. Chris is the hero of this installment. He comes across Gianna and her teenage daughter whose vacation cabin burnt down. Stranded in a snowstorm in Chris' isolated mountain cabin, they soon realize that the fire was no accident. But who would want to harm a mother and her daughter?
As with all the other books in the series, this was a great mix of suspenseful mystery and romance though a bit heavier on the action and suspense this time. There is never a dull moment in these books and the author has a great talent for making you feel the characters' emotions. Some of the revelations and developments approached the over-the-top unbelievable territory. But I love all the characters, old and new, so it was still a very enjoyable read. A great series for fans of romantic suspense.
I received an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. ( )
