BOOK REVIEW: DAUGHTER OF DECEIT
BY PATRICIA SPRINKLE

We hope you enjoy this book review by Patricia Reid.



One coincidence after another has interrupted Katherine Murrayís life recently. Katherine, whose husband Tom spends a lot of time out of town, has been devoting all of her time to getting her Atlanta home back in shape after it was vandalized. Hollis, Katherineís niece, has been helping get the place back in shape for a party.

Ann Rose Anderson was having a get-together to enlist people to tutor residents of Atlanta that had never learned to read. Katherine begged a ride with her sister-in-law Posey to the meeting. Little did she realize that attending the meeting would plunge her into a dangerous mystery that would have lasting effects on a number of people.

Bara Holcomb Weidenauer, an Atlanta socialite, showed up at the meeting. Bara was having husband problems and was in dire financial straits. Her husband Foley had frozen all of her assets and was trying to get the court to award him family heirlooms. Bara wasnít coping well and had taken to having a few drinks to calm her nerves. She had been to a storage shed where she had stored all of her fatherís possessions after his death. She had searched the storage shed in the hopes of finding cash since her father had been in the habit of stashing money in various places. She found her fatherís medals from the war and Posey volunteered Katherine to research the medals.

This research led to buried secrets that not only upset Bara and caused her to question her background but set off a series of events that wound up in murder. Katherine found herself plunged right in the middle of the mystery.

Daughter of Deceit is the third book in the Family Tree Mystery Series. It is enjoyable to watch as Katherine grows in her confidence and ability to research. The characters in Daughter of Deceit are an interesting, varied group.
