McClure and Esme Sabatier are reporting to Dorothy Pritchett
Porter about the progress they have made on her family
history. Soph is a genealogist and Esme is her business
partner. Esme is also a psychic medium. Please don’t
tell anyone – she likes to keep that information
on the down low. Especially since Dorothy’s late
grandmother Sarah told Esme where to find the family
ruby and diamond ring! They have promised Dorothy that
the heritage scrapbooks would indeed be ready for her
on Founder’s Day.
While this is a really good paying job, both are glad
to leave the Porter residence and return home. Soph
and Esme are having their weekly meeting with friends
and working on their family history projects. The food
is good and the company is even better. That is until
the police arrive and they all find out Dorothy Pritchett
Porter is dead …probably murdered. So Soph and
Esme are questioned by the cops and they better make
sure they have a good alibi since they seem to be suspects
1 and 2.
to ponder: Why does Detective Denton Carlson direct
the majority of his questions to Esme? Where is the
ruby and diamond ring? Why not take Dorothy’s
other valuable jewelry? Why was it important for Vivian
to become close friends with Dorothy?
always love finding a new author and series - I think
of it as an extra-special present to myself. This book
does not disappoint. It was a really good read. I loved
the dynamics between the two friends. I read it rather
quickly as I couldn’t tear myself away. I hope
the author is busy writing the next book in the series
so I don’t have to wait too long for another fix.
So, if you like your mystery surrounded by family secrets,
then this is a book you should read.
