FATAL FAMILY TIES release date July 20


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 MURDERED 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.

GLOW OF DEATH By Jane K. Cleland


I have enjoyed my visits with Josie and this book did not disappoint. Josie is offered the chance to appraise a Tiffany Lamp. Following her practices, she appraises the lamp at over a million dollars. The lamp is returned to the owner. Police chief Ellis Hunter takes Josie along when he answer an emergency call. Josie is appalled to realize the party she dealt with is not the owner of the lamp. Prescott Antiques is offered the opportunity to sale the lamp. Before Josie can retrieve the lamp she is shot at preventing the recovery of the lamp. The lamp recover is not the one appraise. Josie is determined to find the guilty party and recover the original lamp to prevent additional murders. I recommend this book.

Disclosure: I received a free copy from St. Martin Press through NetGalley for an honest review. I would like to thank them for this opportunity to read and review the book. The opinions expressed are my own.
