A Heritage of Death
"The pace was excellent with lots of story strands woven into an intricate plot that left you guessing, second guessing and even third guessing. There were some unexpected twists all wrapped up in a writing style that was both easy to read and that also had a lovely flow to it." ~ The Wandering Bookaholic

I have to say I think this book is better the last one, and I thought that was fantastic. We catch up with Cici after she have some disturbing dreams, that seem so real. When she hears her twin’s voice and realizes she is trying to tell something. If you have read the last book you will what happens when Cici starts having visions that begin to come true.
Sam is there supporting Cici as usual as this Harley riding reverend does things her way. This for me was ju ...more

An entertaining read that held my attention throughout.
Every now and then I throw caution to the wind and pick a book from a genre, or by an author, that I am unfamiliar with. This was a double whammy since murder mystery isn't my usual choice, nor have I read this author before. So I had zero 'expectations', though plenty of hopes for this book.
Personally I would have liked a little more romance between the main characters, there is definite ...more
Reverend Cici Gurule has had another vision of a woman in trouble. Then a baby shows up on her door step in the night. A baby who had been abducted, and now her mother is missing. Cici's visions will lead her best friend Sam to the clues he needs to find the missing mother, but to help solve 30 year old murders as well. But will Cici's visions lead them into a killer's trap?
Cici and Sam continue as a wonderful team of characters in this book by Alexa Padgett. ...more
Unfortunately this also implies putting
her life at risk. Sam and Cici are, again,
a good and successful team.
I didn't guess the culprit until the ending.
I recommend this book and am looking forward
to number 3.
I received a free copy and voluntarily wrote this
during a rainy night, she found a baby alone, in front of her house door.
Cici and detective Sam Chastain will work together to keep the baby safe and discover the true.
the story could be reading as a stand alone book, it is fast to read, intriguing, scary, action packed, twisted, haunting.

“Are they dreams or are they visions? 3 stars”
First off let me say that this is my first read of Padgett’s but the second in Reverend Gurule mystery series. In no way shape or form do you have to read book one in order to understand A Heritage of Death. With that said I think A Heritage of Death was a solid book and I enjoyed how Padgett took a very serious issue and brought it to light.
