The Ruth Galloway stories have become one of my favorite series. I have read all 11 (yes, there are 11) books in this series. I just read this newest one which is The Stone Circle, and I’m excited to be giving my review. It’s always so easy for me to jump back into this series with every new book that comes. I love Ruth Galloway’s character and the importance she places on her career. She is an archeologist who teaches class and helps with buried bodies from crime scenes. Overall, I enjoyed this book, but wasn’t my favorite in the series. It left me wanting more, but I did enjoy that it solved a cold case that took place decades before, which was a nice twist. I would give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️, but I will continue reading the series because I do not think one book makes an entire series. I want to continue to see where Ruth Galloway goes with her career as well with her relationship with Nelson.
DCI Nelson has been receiving threatening letters. They are anonymous, yet reminiscent of ones he has received in the past, from the person who drew him into a case that’s haunted him for years. At the same time, Ruth receives a letter purporting to be from that very same person—her former mentor, and the reason she first started working with Nelson. But the author of those letters is dead. Or is he?…. The past is reaching out for Ruth and Nelson, and its grip is deadly.
