Andi Buckner and her twin brother, Bolden, have had enough of the rough streets of Detroit. When they can no longer bear the drugs and abuse within their home, the twins make their escape: Bolden to the military, and Andi to wherever the wind takes her. With few belongings and no specific destination, Andi eventually finds herself across the table from a kind old man in a quaint cafe in Spring Hollow, Montana. Louis “Gramps” Granger, a retired cop, takes Andi under his wing. Andi soon finds a peace she’s never known as she roots herself in the small town, working at the cafe and living in a cabin on Gramps’s property. But her peace is short-lived…
When an enemy from Gramps’s past murders the old man, Andi’s need to see justice served draws her into an investigation far beyond her own abilities. But hundreds of miles away, her twin brother senses her despair and heeds her silent plea for help. Andi is soon reunited with her brother as well as with Bolden’s friend, private investigator Mason Crowther. Together, the trio delves into a mystery and soon discovers that the murderer’s motive goes far deeper than any of them imagined. With the truth almost within reach, they find themselves directly in the path of a killer who will stop at nothing to finish what they’ve started…

In Emilee’s opinion:
I was pleasantly surprised that I was drawn to Clair Poulson’s style of writing. This was the first book I read by Poulson. He had a remarkable way of sharing stories and I look forward to reading more novels by Poulson. It felt like I was hearing a story from my long lost grandpa. I remembered that I had a book of his already in my drawer that I’ve never read. So…I will be reading In Plain Sight which is probably amazing.
Deadly Inheritance kept me guessing till the end and I still didn’t guess who the killer was. There were so many twists and turns. I was drawn to the main character straight away. Her name was Andi Buckner. It was sad to read that her mother wasn’t mature and didn’t have a great relationship with her kids. But, later in the story Andi forgave her and gave her a chance to start over. In the beginning of the story Andi left her mother and found a new home in Spring Hollow, Montana where she quickly was taken in by Louis “Gramps” Granger. Not only does Gramps give her a home on his property he also taught her how to protect herself. Why? Well, Gramps was a retired cop and knew that things weren’t going to last. He was right. Then Gramps was murdered and Andi, Bolden (twin brother) and Mason tried to figure out who the killer was. Deadly Inheritance was definitely filled with suspense so I don’t recommend reading it at night. Of course, that was what I did and couldn’t stop reading. If I didn’t have children, I would have finished it within a day. That was how awesome this novel was. I absolutely loved it!
