This series is very close to the spirit of the TV show Bones whereas I don't think the books it was supposedly based on are at all like the series. Diane Fallon is a forensic anthropologist who is giving up traveling to foreign countries to document mass graves. Instead, she has taken over running a small museum in Georgia and as the series progresses, there is a crime lab added to the museum and she becomes the local bone analysis person. And she dates an FBI guy. I recommend this series over the Temperance Brennan series because I prefer the writing and characters. If you liked the Bones TV show, you might enjoy these.
I see my dental surgeon later today so here's hoping things are going well.
