Lottie's Legacy – A Deena Powers Mystery
Deena Powers’ life has come apart at the seams. Her father has been killed in an auto accident, and her aunt is under suspicion for a murder. Convinced her aunt is innocent, Deena intends to prove it. And who better to ferret out the truth? After all, Deena’s a private investigator.
When she arrives in Four Creeks in California’s San Joaquin Valley where her aunt lives, she’s in for a number of surprises, the first being that her former high school sweetheart, Avis “Buzz” Walker, is the officer investigating the crime. Past feelings stir and sparks fly when Deena starts asking questions and sticking her nose into his investigation.
As Deena delves into the dead woman’s colorful past, she finds a trail that leads back fifty years where a secret is uncovered, one that involves her aunt, and when seemingly unrelated events converge, she is brought face-to-face with a ruthless killer.
