Lara Tyler is a genealogist who traveled to the town of Ash Rock at the request of the town's mayor to help settle an estate that could mean a lot to the town.
While delving into a case of a property potentially worth tens of millions, Lara notices incomplete records that is keeping her from completing her assignment, so she calls in a specialist. Upon making a discovery in the records, the specialist is murdered.
Can Lara close out the case satisfactorily, or will she be next on the list of casualties in order to for some of the townspeople to keep their secrets a secret.
This was a fun story that was written with fairly well-developed characters, and a nice plot line. The problem I had with it was there was major inconsistencies with the location of the town and the mannerisms, and dialect that the people spoke. As they are from a different area of the country. Also, this story did not have a satisfactory ending as it never identified where the inheritance would be going.
I find that Sara is normally a very talented writer. I did like the story well enough to pre-order the next story in the series. I'm hoping for better cohesion between the main characters and where ever Lara's next case take her.
What I got was an intriguing mystery set in small town America, with pleasing characters and a solid plot.
The town itself is quaint, apart from everyone knowing everyone else's business, often before they know it themselves!
Lara, the researcher, knows papers are missing from the files she's researching...but who is to blame? Brody, the archivist and son of the mayor, the mayor himself, someone completely different?
Murder and mayhem ensue before the case is closed, as does a growing attraction between Lara and Brody.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
Lara Tyler was hired to find out who inherits the Frankie Horowitz estate but somehow, the seemingly mundane and easy task is a lot more difficult than it appears. There are papers missing in the files and archives and the archivist seems to know more than he is prepared to divulge. Secrets galore and Lara is determined to find out what is going on. Throw in a murder, a wealthy shifty mayor, townsfolk who appear friendly, but may have some other agenda and it makes a very interesting mix. Four stars because we never really found out what was in the actual will and who the beneficiaries actually were.
