Secrets and lies can't stay buried forever in Cedar Valley.
Emily Littlejohn was born and raised in southern California and has called Colorado home since 2003. She worked for several years at the Denver Public Library and is now a library supervisor at the Westminster Public Library. If she's not writing, reading, or working, she's enjoying the mountains with her husband and sweet old dog. She has a deep love of horror stories, butter pecan ice cream, and road trips. Inherit the Bones is her first novel.
"In her well-crafted debut, Emily Littlejohn skillfully captures life in a small town--and the insidious secret keeping that can come with it. Inherit the Bones is the perfect fall page-turner."--Real Simple Magazine"Littlejohn writes with assurance and skill. The story's plotting is sure-footed, and the characters are well developed and believable...Highly recommended."--Library Journal (starred review, Debut of the Month)"If you read only 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"Engrossing...The charming setting, engaging characters, and adroit pacing will keep [readers] turning the pages."--Publishers Weekly"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
