When Adele Delaney and her daughter, Violet, go missing, Jacques Rouleau is called upon to investigate. However, struggling with the impending death of his ill ex-wife, he sends Kala Stonechild and Paul Gundersund instead. Stonechild has been trying to adapt to life as her young cousin Dawn's guardian, and even though Gundersund has offered support, Stonechild is at risk of losing custody. On the second day of the investigation, Adele's body turns up, dumped on the shoulder of the highway with no sign of her daughter. Her husband, Ivo, denies any involvement with either his wife's death or their child's disappearance, but not everyone is convinced. As the investigation unfolds, Stonechild learns that Adele was once entangled with a Montreal biker gang and heads to Quebec to investigate further. As Stonechild and Gundersund juggle personal troubles and a complicated, dangerous case, they find themselves piecing together a chain of disasters leading back to a single betrayal.… (mais)

Thank you NetGalley and Dundurn for providing an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Tumbled Graves is the third book in Stonechild and Rouleau Mystery series. (And I hope it won’t be the last.)

In the first book Kala Stonechild was one of the most secretive persons in the world. She liked to work on her own without a partner covering her back; she used to move a lot and cared only about her dog Taiku. In the third book we can see how Kala has changed. She works with Paul Gundersund as her partner, she take’s care about Lily’s daughter Dawn, while her mother is in prison, and she begins showing emotions. She grew up as a person.
Sergeant Rouleau hasn’t changed much, he just became sadder. His ex-wife Frances has died of cancer and now he has only his father.
I’m glad that Rouleau and Stonechild have each other. They will survive through everything while they are there for each other.
Paul Gundersund. There’s something going on between him and Kala. I hope that in the next book we’ll some romantic moments between them.
Woodhouse.. That ignoble police officer Woodhouse.. I just knew that he is a jerk. He has broken so many lives. I just can’t understand why has he done what he has done? What were his motives?
Brenda Chapman did the excellent job and wrote one of the most interesting mystery series. It is full of unpredictable twists and turns. Until the very end you don’t have a clue where in fact is Violet.
I strongly recommend this book particularly and the series as a whole to those who enjoy mysteries. ( )

I have come into this series at the third book but didn't have any trouble following the story and the relationships. The case has to do with a missing mother and child. When Kala Stonechild begins to look into it, she isn't willing to take the easy way out and blame the husband Ivo Delaney. The more she looks the more she uncovers the tangled past of Adele Delaney which leads her into the shady bar scene in Montreal. The case becomes even more complicated when the mutilated body of Adele Delaney is found but her three-year-old daughter Violet is still missing - presumed drowned in the river behind the family home.

While investigating the investigators' personal lives all intrude. Rouleau, who is Stonechild's friend and mentor, is dealing with the final illness of his ex-wife who is in hospice care. Stonechild is getting used to being the foster parent of thirteen-year-old Dawn whose mother, now serving time in prison, was a childhood friend of hers. Both Stonechild and Dawn and quiet, solitary, and introspective. Stonechild is afraid that she won't be a successful foster parent because of her own past in foster care. And Stonechild's partner Gundersund is dealing with a marriage that is troubled and a wife who is also a co-worker. Since Gundersund would like to begin a relationship beyond their partnership, a jealous almost-ex-wife isn't a positive. Kala isn't willing to step between a man and his wife and isn't easily able to trust anyone. Then there is the jealous co-worker - Woodhouse - who wants Stonechild out of the police largely because she is good at the job and he isn't.

This was an engaging police procedural with nicely complex people. Fans of mysteries will enjoy this story. ( )

This is the first I've read in this series and it was pretty decent police suspense. The duo here are based in Kingston, ON, and I especially loved reading about some of haunts of the past, such as Brockville and Ottawa. The action is believable, the characters interesting, and the mystery intriguing.

The book does have a couple of drawbacks, however. As in many novels in the genre, the author couldn't resist adding a somewhat stupid and certainly out-shined cop who feels put-upon, jealous, and vindictive, self-righteously sabotaging colleagues to feel smart. In this case, he disrupts a very delicate balance in the lives of one of the cops and destroys a budding home life for a needy young person, an outcome I found unnecessary and which ruined the end of the book for me.
