DEADLY WILL (Amateur Sleuth-Philadelphia-Cont) – G
Hill, Marion Moore – 1st in series
Pemberley Press, 2006 – Trade Paperback
Millie Kirchner is a divorced, single mom working at a nursing home and just trying to make ends meet. She receives a letter from an attorney in Philadelphia advising her of a legacy from an ancestor about whom she’d never known. However, things are not always as they seem and one-by-one, the other heirs are dying.
Ms. Hill has created an enjoyable story focusing on Philadelphia, American History, antiques and greed. There is a classic cross section of characters with the focus being Millie. The dialogue could be a bit better and the plot a bit tighter, particularly at the end. But it’s a pleasant read and, for cozy readers, worth trying.
