Kincaid and James

Finished February 24
Water Like a Stone by Deborah Crombie
This is the latest in the series featuring Scotland Yard's Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James. When the pair go to Duncan's parents place over the Christmas vacation with their children, they immediately encounter mysteries. Duncan's sister Juliet finds a baby's corpse when she demolishes some plaster work on a building site she is working on. Juliet is also having marital issues and they are affecting her children, Sam and Lally. Lally is also still upset over the recent drowning of a high school classmate. Both Duncan and Gemma find themselves being drawn into the events taking place even as Gemma adjusts to her role as part of Duncan's larger family. Kit, Duncan's son also finds himself being drawn in as he connects with Lally and questions her relationship with her friend Leo. More secrets emerge, and the family discovers how little they really know about each other's lives. Lots of action, character development and issues.
