Lineage Most Lethal is the second entry in this author’s mystery series. In an interesting twist, our protagonist is a genealogist. This adds a bit of history to the mystery.
The story begins at a hotel in Austin. Lucy has been researching heiress, Pippa’s, family tree and is ready to report her findings when she encounters a death. Who was the victim? Why did he hand Lucy an Montblanc pen before he died? What does Lucy’s grandfather know?
Readers know that all will be resolved and that they can relax and enjoy the story along the way. The author excels in both her characters and plot.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review. I also recommend the author’s prior book, Murder Once Removed.
