SYNOPSIS:
Some secrets can come back to haunt you . . .

School principal Emily Taylor feels safe in the friendly little town of Burchill—until she finds a body in her school. The murder of caretaker Nathaniel Ryeburn brings back memories she’d rather forget and plunges Emily into a mystery that involves a secret diary, an illegal puppy mill and a murderer cleverly disguised as an ordinary citizen.

As fear rips through the traumatized town, Emily’s investigation inadvertently leads the police to her door, and to her husband Langford, who is hiding a secret of his own. It becomes clear to Emily that many of Burchill’s residents are merely wearing masks. And it’s time for those masks to be ripped away . . . and for a killer’s identity to be revealed.

5.0 out of 5 stars
By Gail M Baugniet, Author of For Every Action
Deadly Legacy is an honest to goodness Mystery patterned after early mystery writers Agatha Christie, Arthur Conan Doyle, and Edgar Allan Poe. The story, however, is set on 21st century Canadian soil. http://tinyurl.com/bkrzwcr

Intriguing first episode of a new mystery series
By Corinne H. Smith TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE™ VOICE
Kate Garrett works as a police detective in a city in southwestern Ontario. She’s in the midst of a drug-related homicide investigation when she gets the worst news possible: her father Joe has been hit by a car and killed. A retired police officer himself, Joe had since turned to running his own private investigation service. Was it his most recent case that put him in harm’s way? Or was this merely a tragic accident? http://tinyurl.com/afgvtmo
