{Book Details}
Andi Buckner and her twin brother, Bolden, have had enough of the rough streets of Detroit. When they can no longer bear the drugs and abuse within their home, the twins make their escape: Bolden to the military, and Andy to wherever the wind takes her. With few belongings and no specific destination, Andi eventually finds herself across the table from a kind old man in a quaint café in Spring Hollow, Montana. Louis "Gramps" Granger, a retired cop, takes Andi under his wing. Andi soon finds a peace she's never known as she roots herself in the small town, working at the café and living in a cabin on Gramps's property. But her peace is short-lived. . .
When an enemy from Gramps's past murders the old man, Andi's need to see justice served draws her into an investigation far beyond her own abilities. But hundreds of miles away, her twin brother senses her despair and heeds her silent plea for help. Andi is soon reunited with her brother as well as with Bolden' s friend, private investigator Mason Crowther. Together, the trio delves into a mystery and soon discovers that the murderer's motive goes far deeper than any of them imagined. With the truth almost within reach, they find themselves directly in the path of a killer who will stop at nothing to finish what they've started. 

{My Review}

Deadly Inheritance is a fast-paced murder mystery that builds up the suspense and intrigue so quickly you know you won't be putting the book down anytime soon. Not only is the plot richly layered, but the characters are interesting and you want to know more, even if they are already dead. The one thing that I loved was how with each new layer added to the story the more the reader is throw off track of the real killer. I honestly was so surprised by the many twists that the author revealed as the story progressed. 

My favorite characters in the book were Andi, the leading lady, Gramps who took Andi into his life and heart, the dog Shadow, and Mason the P.I. who is outright amazing in the story. I'm not giving details away in this book review because that would be cruel to any reader who picks up this book after me. Just realize when starting this book that it was written by a man who worked in the criminal justice system for many decades, so details about the police, investigations, and actions of criminals are written very realistically. The twists and turns with many shocking moments and never ending action will keep you reading and loving Deadly Inheritance. This one comes highly recommended by me giving it 5 stars.
