- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
Trouble follows the Garcia sisters, and this time a close family friend is in the hot seat. Once again they band together to come to his aid. But even with the trash-talking ghost of their dead sister, Tessa, making another appearance from the "other side," they have their work cut out for them to keep their friend and sibling from wearing an orange jumpsuit.
After Emily Ruiz Santiago is killed in a shootout with police during a bank robbery in El Paso, Dr. Kate Garcia gets a call from a Houston lawyer. Seems the woman has left her sizable inheritance to Kate and family friend, Benny Yates, who runs the Mission of Hope, a soup kitchen for the down and out citizens of Vineyard. The problem is--the Emily they knew lived on the streets of Vineyard and died of a drug overdose three months before. Suspicion falls on Benny when another homeless person drops dead at the Mission, and he is listed as the beneficiary on the man's recent life insurance policy. The Garcia sisters go into sleuth mode once again to keep their friend out of jail, before they discover one of their own is also a suspect.

Dollycas’s Thoughts Lizbeth Lipperman had written yet another fantastic mystery! I love Tessa and when she returns from “the great beyond” you know one of her sisters is in trouble. She drops in on Kate this time at a very inopportune moment, but Dr. Kate Garcia handles the surprise pretty well. That means Kate is the only one that can see or hear her. At that time they don’t know which of the sisters needs help but when Kate receives a call from a lawyer she knows it is her. A woman has died and left her and her friend Benny an inheritance. Kate and Benny are confused because the woman they knew was homeless, how could she have left the any money? The plot thickens when another homeless person dies and Benny seems to be the beneficiary of his life insurance policy. The Garcia girls have their work cut out for them as they try to sort through all the clues to keep Benny and Kate out of a 10 x 10 jail cell. This is such a great series. Kate, Lainey, Maddy, and Deena are quite a force to be reckoned with, together and separately. Even Lainey’s husband, the town sheriff, knows no matter what he says or how hard he tries the sisters are going to butt right into the middle of his investigation. This makes for some thrilling moments and some hairy situations. Tessa is hysterical, she adds the comic relief that keeps everything balanced and in the cozier realm. The dialogue between all the characters is fabulous, quick and real. I have to say the mystery was pretty tricky even after we get the first big clue. It was a twisty, topsy, turvey ride from the start to the finish. There is a subplot too that has the beginnings of a romance. I enjoyed this part immensely. In Heard It Through The Grapevine Lainey was the sister in trouble. In Jailhouse Glock it was Maddy. This time Kate was the one that needed help. Deena must be up next and I truly cannot wait for her story. All of these books can stand on their own but you should really start at the beginning because these sisters are such wonderful and unique characters. Tessa will surely have you laughing out loud in each, and every one of the mysteries is top-notch. I have read everything Liz/LizBeth Lipperman has published and loved them all. She definitely is one of my favorite authors!
Another great Garcia Girls mystery.
