Meet the Ancestry Detective, Lucy Lancaster, a Texan genealogist who uses her research skills to solve murders both past and present. In the first book in this fun, cozy mystery series from S.C. Perkins, Murder Once Removed, Lucy discovers a daguerreotype photograph and journal that proves a Texas billionaire was murdered back in 1849. After linking the murderer to a relation of a present-day U.S. senator, Lucy must face the dangerous ramifications of her investigations. “A delightful debut spiced with a tempestuous romance and certain to appeal to fans of genealogical research and history” (Kirkus Reviews).
