Review Tour: The Bones of Our Fathers by Elin Gregory ~ (Giveaway)

Length: 80,000 words approx

Publisher: Manifold Press

Cover Design: Michelle Peart


Malcolm Bright, brand new museum curator in a small Welsh Border town, is a little lonely until – acting as emergency archaeological consultant on a new housing development – he crosses the path of Rob Escley, aka Dirty Rob, who makes Mal’s earth move in more ways than one.

Then Rob discovers something wonderful, and together they must combat greedy developers and a treasure hunter determined to get his hands on the find. Are desperate measures justified to save the bones of our fathers? Will Dirty Rob live up to his reputation? Do museum curators really do it meticulously?

Answers must be found for the sake of Mal’s future, his happiness and his heart.

5 Stars!!!

Once upon a time, back when I was trying to decide what to study in University, I had two top career choices: Law and Archaeology. While I ultimately decided to follow my dad's footsteps and become a lawyer, I've always loved Archaeology and everything historical-related, so I was in heaven while reading The Bones of Our Fathers with all the descriptions for the find and its care. 

I absolutely adored Mal and Rob. They just fit so well together despite being opposites. And while there was an instance in which I sided with Mal, at least until we were given all the pertaining information, I really loved how Ms. Gregory handled that particular hurdle. The chemistry between Mal and Rob was off the charts and even if the heat level of the book isn't all that high, it was more than enough to see and feel their connection was more than just physical.

I loved all of Rob's friends and Harvey and Zoe, they were such a close-knit community and they were there for each other when they were needed. 

This was such a delightful read! From the main to the secondary characters and the interesting storylines to the exciting descriptions and the promise of a HEA for Mal and Rob, I just couldn't get enough. This is my first book by this author, but I can assure you it won't be the last. Her writing was amazing and vivid and engaging. Highly recommendable!!!
