After the Storm by Linda Castillo

After a tornado hits Painters Mill, Ohio, human bones are found in an abandoned barn. The remains turn out to be those of Leroy Holt who went missing thirty years ago. Chief of Police Kate Burkholder and her team delve into Leroy's personal life to find out who might have murdered him. Not only is Kate dealing with the storm cleanup, but she also faces trouble from Paula and Nick Kester, who blame her for causing their young daughter Lucy's death, even after Kate rescued Lucy during the tornado. When Kate is shot at, she wonders if it's the Kesters who are targeting her, or if it's related to the Leroy Holt murder case. In this seventh book of the series, Castillo writes a mystery that's hard to put down, although I have a minor quibble with an aspect of Kate's personal story.
