The Family Tree Murders

The Lainey Maynard Mystery Series



The email from her friend…

…had Lainey worried.

Why was Mary so upset over a DNA test?

Lainey needed a change after her husband’s death. The quaint town of Mirror Falls, nestled among the lakes of northern Minnesota, was the perfect spot. She made some quirky friends. It was a restful life…

until the email.

Mary had done it as a lark. It might be fun to find out her family’s history. When the DNA test came back, everything changed. The brother she loved was only her half-brother. And, it seemed, he was next in line for a substantial inheritance…

or murder.

As a successful insurance fraud investigator, Lainey had worked out more than her fair share of sinister plots, but this was different. With the help of her quirky friends, she’s determined to figure out who’s been trimming off branches of the family tree.

Will they find the murderer before he kills again?

You’ll love this cozy mystery, because the characters are delightful, and the twists will keep you turning the pages.
