An unconventional pastor. A brutal murder. To solve the case, one reverend will look for help from beyond the grave…

Reverend Cecelia “Cici” Gurule dreams of a bruised and bloodied woman who looks alarmingly like Cici. She’d like to pretend the dream is a nightmare and nothing more, but there are too many coincidences in her waking life to write it off. Like the baby that turns up on her porch–a baby that disappeared weeks before.

Cici and Detective Sam Chastain race to find the woman, but the killer finds her first. As the trail grows cold, Cici’s only chance to solve the mystery before she becomes the next target may be a clue left by her ghostly twin.

A Heritage of Death is the second novel in a compelling female sleuth mystery series for fans of Ruth Ware and Gilly MacMillan. If you like convention-shattering heroines, vivid Southwest settings, and a touch of the paranormal, then you’ll love Alexa Padgett’s twisty mystery.

So here we have a pastor who lives in a small town in the USA but whose twin died by murder. She has always been linked to her twin, in the way they often are, in that they would feel each other’s emotions and pains. And so she knew when her sister was in trouble and when she died.

And now, from the grave, her sister’s ‘ghost’ or at least its presence and some semblance of words, tries to help her when she gets involved in crimes. Because this pastor always does.

i read book 1 first to obtain the background and by the end of it,

i was wondering if there was anyone left alive in her church and the small town. For me, it was Midsummer Murders in a book form, but better written. Just too many people were killed. So I was not sure about book 2 which is the one this blog tour is for.

But it is better. As with so many authors, they learn their craft and improve their story-telling and the characters develop as the series progresses. This is what has happened here I think.  but let’s not have too many murders please. One complex one per book is enough.
