Not Dead Yet (Eva Rae Thomas Mystery #7) by Willow Rose

Not Dead Yet

(Eva Rae Thomas Mystery #7)

by Willow Rose

Kindle Edition, 317 pages

Published November 26th 2020


Secrets lead to lies and lies to murder in this pulse-pounding mystery with lots of shocking twists.

Has former FBI-profiler Eva Rae Thomas finally gotten herself in deeper than she can handle?

When the body of Nancy Henry is pulled out of the water of Sykes Creek by two local fishermen, they soon realize she’s not dead.

Not yet.

Before she disappeared, Nancy Henry appeared to have everything: a successful husband who adored her, two beautiful children, a modeling career, and a charming home in south Merritt Island with a heart wreath on the door.

Now that she is back five years later, everything has changed. Her husband is with another wife, and her children are almost grown.

Everywhere she turns, people are telling her the same thing: We thought you were dead.

What happened to her?

Nancy claims she doesn’t know where she has been. She remembers nothing after a blow to her head. She doesn’t want to talk to the investigation team lead by former FBI-profiler Eva Rae Thomas, who has agreed to help with this bizarre case.

The sheriff’s office soon wants to give up on the case, but Eva Rae doesn’t quite believe in quitting. She sees fear in Nancy Henry’s eyes that makes her believe she is lying to them, maybe to protect herself.

What secrets is she carrying?

To get to the truth, Eva Rae must get to the bottom of what really happened on that night five years ago when Nancy Henry disappeared from her home in what looked like a home intrusion. But the past isn’t always easy to dig up, especially not when someone wants it to stay hidden and will go to great lengths to make sure it does.

Someone obviously tried to kill Nancy Henry. Will they come back to finish what they started?


4.5 Stars

This is the seventh book in the Eva Rae Thomas mystery series by Willow Rose.

The books by Willow Rose are always very complex. And this book is no different. A woman is found after thought being dead for five years. Her husband has remarried and her kids have moved on as well both going to college away from home.

Eva Rae is asked to take on the case and even though she is pregnant and she and Matt are not really getting along through most of the book. I really liked Matt when he was introduced. And him being a police officer should make him an expert on how obsessed people get trying to solve their cases. He just doesn’t get how concerned she is. 

There is always a parallel story running alongside the main story and I try and figure out how it applies to the now timeline and am always surprised by what Willow Rose manages to pull out of her hat and shock us every time.

Such a good story and a great storyteller. Very impressed with this author’s work.

If you love a good mystery, definitely check this one out. Great new must read book great series too!
