I was delighted to see that the Ancestry Detective series was started. The series is set in Texas. Lucy Lancaster, a genealogist along with two friends have rent a flat in. Each has her own office. Lucy has been working with Austin billionaire, Gus Halloran researching his ancestry. She has found a daguerreotype photograph and a journal that proves his Great-great grandfather was murder in 1849 and even tell him who was the villain. While Lucy was informing the Halloran family, the information is shown on TV and accused Senator Daniel Applewhite that his Great-great Grandfather was the killer.
Senator Applewhite is running for reelection and his opponent is a Halloran.
Lucy feels she must look into what happened in 1849 and begins to trace the ancestry of the individuals involved. A friend of Lucy is MURDER and the daguerreotype is missing. The twists and turns that occur as Lucy begins tracing the individuals involved in the killing. Will Lucy find daguerreotype? I highly recommend this book.
