"Daughter of Deceit" is the third entry into Patricia Sprinkle's Family Tree Mysteries &, in my opinion, the weakest. The book is not bad, but I feel that the first two are better. I continue to love the Buckhead, Atlanta setting, but I wasn't all that interested in Bara, who is the center of the mystery. I really wanted to see more of Katharine Murray, the protagonist, but it seemed as though there were too many chapters devoted entirely to Bara & her family problems. I felt that Katharine was tangential at best & wasn't even needed for the book.

Even though "Daughter of Deceit" isn't my favorite in the series, the book itself is good, & I'll surely buy a fourth book in this series.

Bara Weidenauer is having a hard time. Her husband Foley is asking for a divorce and wants half of everything. He has frozen her bank accounts, credit cards and had all items in the house appraised and listed so she cannot sell them. She believes he will take her for every penny she has, and to make matters worse, he is seeing their former maid. After being sober for a long time, Bara has taken up drinking again.

Bara's father committed suicide a little while ago. She stored his belongings in a storage unit. She goes to the unit to look through her father's things for money for groceries. She comes across her dad's military medals.

Katharine Murray is recovering from her house being vandalized. She has been redoing her house, getting it ready for a big party. That is until Bara comes into Katharine's life.

Bara decides to have the medals framed for her grandson Chip. Someone gives her the idea to ask Katharine to see what the medals mean so that when Chip is older, he will know what kind of man his great grandpa was.

Katharine gets to work on the medals-and it starts to get really interesting. Bara and she get together and go over the meaning of the medals and read the citations they found that go with some of them.

Foley is discovered dead and Bara is badly beaten up with lots of broken bones. When the police look at Bara as the only suspect in Foley's death, Katharine starts her own investigating. She is questioning people and revealing a family secret that has been hidden for lots of years.

I really liked this series. This is the first one I have read by Patricia Sprinkle but I will be sure to read the others. I find the background interesting when they are searching for people as well as items.

This is an enjoyable story, however the spelling and gramatical errors make it hard to read.

I began reading Patricia Sprinkle's books when she was writing the Sheila Travis series (loved it....great plots and humor!). I then introduced myself to McLauren Yarbrough and visited her often in that series (truly wonderful!!!!). Loving history and genealogy, I knew this series was right up my alley.....and it is! Sprinkle's characters become good friends of mine. They are real, and I enjoy visiting them so much. I highly recommend all three series to any cozy mystery lover.

An entertaining, hold your attention read. Being a genealogist and history buff was just a bonus. Katherine reluctantly takes on the job of finding out about Bara's father's war medals and promptly opens a can of worms. Enjoy!
