Johanna Hudson thrives in the past — that is, the past lives of her clients’ ancestors. Johanna and her business partner own a genealogy firm that researches and prepares family trees.
Johanna is introduced to Eloise Manley who wants to give her daughter, Ruby, a healthy future that Eloise did not have. She placed infant Ruby up for blind adoption.
However, Eloise discovers that she is entitled to a large inheritance from a father she never knew. Eloise wants Johanna to finder her father and locate Ruby’s adopted family. Johanna agrees, and she ignores escalating threats to stop searching.
Johanna scrambles against the clock to find Ruby and pushes forward when it is clear that greed is a motive that comes with its own rationalization — even for murder.
The Inheritance is the first book in the Johanna Hudson Mystery series.
