Sequel to Forgotten History, excellent story. I loved this story even more than the first one. Great characters and good story throughout. This mother-daughter do an excellent job. Cozy story and great reading. Knew who the bad guy was, had fun figuring out some of the answers and enjoying the ending. All tied up cleanly. I love short series with great ending even when slightly sad.
