Sequels are always a hit or a miss. You either manage to recapture the interest that caught the reader with the first one, or you miss the mark completely.

Suspicion of Guilt did a good job of keeping you interested in the characters from the first book. I blew through the first hundred pages in a day. But, where the first one grabbed your interest from the very first page and kept you there, this second book struggled to maintain it's momentum. I found myself not really getting anywhere after th

Absolutely fantastic! The book caught my interest from the first pages and kept it all through to the end.

When money is involved the greedy family fights over the money left behind. Th ...more

I really enjoyed this book up until the end when the murderer was revealed. Usually this is the part I enjoy most, but with this book, even though it was a surprise, it left me feeling incredibly dissatisfied. I don't think the character building contributed positively to the final "Aha!"

A little better than the first book of this series, and I liked the heroine just a little bit more. The author did not write a chapter near the end describing some of the most adventurous time in the book, just talked about it as having already happened. Weird.

Just an okay book. Moved slow. There was a nice twist.

Plot: A lawyer takes on a case that is not a certain win. She uncovers different evidence that points to different people and in the end you will be surprised who did it.

Very well written. Barbara Parker gives a great insight to her characters and their personal lives, while telling the mystery.
