Description
When a professional genealogist who teaches classes in family history scrapbooking is implicated in the murder of her client, she starts her own investigation to clear her name--and avoid jail
Piecing together the evidence . . .
Genealogist Sophreena McClure is an expert at unearthing other people's secrets. Using old documents and photographs, Soph and her business partner, Esme Sabatier--also a gifted medium--trace family histories and create heritage scrapbooks. Their latest client, Dorothy Pritchett Porter, is thrilled with their research into Morningside's most prestigious clan. But before Dorothy can proudly display her new scrapbooks on Founders' Day, she's found murdered. It seems the ties that bind can also strangle, for Dorothy has been killed using the Pritchett family pearls.
Pegged as prime suspects, Sophreena and Esme turn their investigative skills from the dearly departed to the alive and dangerous, hoping to pin down the real killer among Dorothy's kinfolk. Sophreena's scrapbooking club members, crafty in more ways than one, pitch in to help. As the Pritchett ancestral roots turn out to be more tangled than anyone suspected, Sophreena wonders just how many skeletons lurk in this family closet--and whether she and Esme are destined to join them. . . .
