What is Paula Munier reading?

Featured at Writers Read: Paula Munier, author of A Borrowing of Bones: Mercy and Elvis Mysteries (Volume 1).

Her entry begins:
I always am reading several books at a time. Non-fiction and fiction. I just finished The Affair by Lee Child, a Jack Reacher novel I’ve read before (I’ve read them all before). These novels are entertaining to me as a reader, and instructive to me as a writer. I travel a lot, and sometimes I dread it—especially flying—but now I treat myself to a Reacher novel whenever I’m on the road.

About A Borrowing of Bones, from the publisher:
Grief and guilt are the ghosts that haunt you when you survive what others do not….

After their last deployment, when she got shot, her fiancĂ© Martinez got killed and his bomb-sniffing dog Elvis got depressed, soldier Mercy Carr and Elvis were both sent home, her late lover’s last words ringing in her ears: “Take care of my partner.”

Together the two former military police—one twenty-nine-year-old two-legged female with wounds deeper than skin and one handsome five-year-old four-legged Malinois with canine PTSD—march off their grief mile after mile in the beautiful remote Vermont wilderness.

Even on the Fourth of July weekend, when all of Northshire celebrates with fun and frolic and fireworks, it’s just another walk in the woods for Mercy and Elvis—until the dog alerts to explosives and they find a squalling baby abandoned near a shallow grave filled with what appear to be human bones.

U.S. Game Warden Troy Warner and his search and rescue Newfoundland Susie Bear respond to Mercy’s 911 call, and the four must work together to track down a missing mother, solve a cold-case murder, and keep the citizens of Northshire safe on potentially the most incendiary Independence Day since the American Revolution.

It’s a call to action Mercy and Elvis cannot ignore, no matter what the cost.
