Making a reappearance are Hobart Hastings, Posey Buiton, Hollis Buiton, Dr. Florence Gadney, and Lamar Franklin. Tom Murray, Katharine's husband appears for a time. Katharine, with the help of Hollis, is still working on fixing and redecorating her Buckhead home which was vandalized in the series book one. If you liked book 1, you'll love book 2.
The reason I didn't guess the killer was because it didn't make much sense -- the motive just wasn't sufficient, the character didn't seem right. Moreover, there was a big climactic ending with shooting and death and injury that also didn't seem to have sufficient motivation or seem in character with the person doing it. It just wasn't credible within the story lines.
Aside from that, this was an interesting read, and the genealogical mystery was well done. It really captures life in Atlanta among the upper middle class and the flavor of the coastal regions (including Jeckyl Island). It's well worth a read, and I will certainly look forward to additions in the series.
Interesting background on a area of Georgia I wasn't familiar with, enjoyed the characters (good guys and bad)and found it a thoroughly enjoyable read.

I found this book very fun to read. I'm expecially into genealogy so the theme was very close to my heart. I read it in three days only because my own life required my attention. Read morePublished on January 21, 2013 by Amazon Customer

A good read for history buffs and genealogists. Although I figured out "whodunit" as well as the family mystery about halfway through the book, it still held my interest and I kept... Read morePublished on June 9, 2009 by Augusta Jane
"Sins of the Fathers" continues the story of Katharine Murray. Though there is not as much personal growth for Katharine in this book, the mystery more than makes up for this fact. Read morePublished on March 4, 2008 by Viola Sanders
