Always Time to Die (St. Kilda Consulting, Bk 1)
robinmy avatar reviewed on + 2002 more book reviews

An elderly Aunt to the current Governor of New Mexico has asked Genealogist Carly May to compile a family history for her. As soon as Carly starts digging through photos and interviewing the locals about the family, a dead rat shows up on her pillow along with a threatening phone call. Someone doesn't want her uncovering the secrets of the past. But Dan Duran is in town on vacation and decides to help her out. He won't tell Carly what his connection is to the family, but he wants to uncover secrets as much as she does.

The first book in Elizabeth Lowell's St. Kilda Consulting series is an intricately plotted mystery with murder, blackmail, poisoning, secret babies and false identities. Just when I thought I had a portion of it figured out, another twist would blow all of my theories. I've read other books by this author and really wasn't impressed. I'm glad I gave her another try. I'll definitely be continuing with this series. My rating: 4.5 Stars.
