Designated Daughters:A Deborah Knott Mystery
When North Carolina Judge Deborah Knott (The Buzzard Table, 2012) is summoned to her ailing aunt's bedside, she is relieved to discover that her aunt is okay. But her joy quickly gives way to shock: less than an hour later, Aunt Rachel is found smothered in her bed. Who would kill a woman on her deathbed? Soon Deborah and her husband, Deputy Dwight Bryant, realize that the key to solving the case is hidden in Rachel's mysterious final words. Her mixed-up memories harbored a dark secret that someone close to them is determined to bury forever. Another excellent addition to this long-running series.
