Description

The small town of Lachlan, Florida, was recently rocked when two bodies were uncovered in the roots of a fallen tree. Despite their lack of investigative experience, Sara Medlar; her niece, Kate; and Jack Wyatt found themselves at the center of the mystery, working together to reveal the truth behind a decades-old secret in the sleepy town. After a narrow escape, they vowed to never again involve themselves in something so dangerous—until Janet Beeson is murdered.
When Janet's body is discovered, everyone is shocked by the violence of the attack. The sweet little old woman has been shot, stabbed and poisoned, but no one can imagine who would want to harm one of the town's kindest, most helpful residents.
Sara, Kate and Jack are determined to leave this case to the professionals. But they are soon bombarded by townspeople eager to tell their stories and clear their names with the trio who solved the Morris murders. Even the sheriff is hoping they'll lend their skills to a crime that seems to have no explanation and no motive. And once the town gets talking, they begin to see that there are more secrets buried in quiet Lachlan than anyone could have imagined...

        December 1, 2018
        In the second installment of the Medlar Mystery series, an author and her partners-in-solving-crime investigate the murder of an elderly woman in Lachlan, Florida."Today, living alone is considered to be an almost criminal act," says Sara Medlar, author and amateur sleuth. Perhaps that's why Janet Beeson was found dead in her home with a knife in her chest, poison dripping from her mouth, and a bullet in her head. Other than her best friend, Sylvia Alden, who killed herself two years ago, Janet had no close friends--and no real enemies. According to all the neighbors who admit they've taunted her, vandalized her property, and called her a witch over the years, Janet hadn't done anything to deserve it. If anything, they're surprised she'd never tried to murder any of them. Sara doesn't want to get involved, but when Sheriff Daryl Flynn asks her to stop by the crime scene to take pictures, she can't get Janet's story out of her head. With the help of her niece, realtor Kate Medlar, and Jack Wyatt, the grandson of her old flame, Sara continues to poke her nose around town to find out why this supposedly sweet old lady's life went sour. And she seems to find a new scandal around every corner. Meanwhile, Kate prods the neighbors for stories about her late father, and Jack's crush on Kate remains unrequited.Readers who are new to the series will quickly catch up. Juicy neighborhood gossip and a good dose of humor build up to a dramatic ending that's equal parts wicked and fun.

        February 1, 2019

        When Sheriff Daryl Flynn is called to Janet Beeson's house, he suspects the elderly woman died of natural causes. But the corpse he finds has been shot, poisoned, and stabbed. He immediately calls Sara Medlar to photograph the scene, and she calls her partners in investigation, including niece Kate and Jack Wyatt, the grandson she never had. The "Medlar trio" looks over the crime scene, but vow they won't investigate a murder case again. Then half the population of Lachlan, FL, shows up at Sara's house to confess to killing Janet. Everyone has a story as to how they were cruel to the woman, who returned only kindness. Something sounds fishy. The story of a cold case, the kidnapping and return of an infant, adds to their curiosity. No matter how much they insist they won't get involved, the three are intrigued when a reporter and a retired police chief show up. This leisurely paced mystery allows plenty of time to introduce characters and for the sexual tension between Kate and Jack to rise. VERDICT Deveraux's second book doesn't quite live up to the promise of A Willing Murder. While the interactions among the primary team are still spirited, there are too many characters and the conclusion is rather implausible.
