Review: Lost Legacy by: Annette Dashofy

Title: Lost Legacy
Author: Annette Dashofy
Publisher: Henery Press
Series: Zoe Chambers Mysteries #2
Pages: 296 pages
Format: ebook
Source: Great Escapes Book Tour

Description:

On a sultry summer afternoon, Paramedic Zoe Chambers responds to a call and finds a farmer’s body hanging from the rafters of his hay barn. What first appears to be a suicide quickly becomes something sinister when Zoe links the victim to a pair of deaths forty-five years earlier. Her attempts to wheedle information from her mother and stepfather hit a brick wall of deception, one that brings into question everything Zoe knows about her late father, who died in a car crash when she was eight. Or did he?

Police Chief Pete Adams fears Zoe’s inquiries are setting her up for deeper heartbreak and putting her in danger. As Zoe and Pete inch closer to the truth, they discover that a missing gun links the crimes which span more than four decades. But the killer isn’t done. Two more Vance Township residents fall victim to the same gun, and when tragedy strikes too close to home, Zoe realizes her family is in the crosshairs.

My Thoughts:

In this book we meet Zoe Chambers and her acquaintances as she responds to a call as a Paramedic and finds Jim Engle dead by hanging, something about this crime hits Zoe and makes her question everything she knows especially when more people wind up dying around her.

What I found great about this story is it was an new crime wrapped under older crimes.  In order to solve the first you really had to watch characters sift through the older crimes.  I also enjoyed Pete's dad who was great for a dementia type patient.

Definitely a great who-dun-it mystery that really had you wondering who was committing murder?
