A Deception at Thornecrest: An Amory Ames Mystery

By: Ashley Weaver

Rating: 5 of 5

This is the seventh book in the Amory Ames series but it is the first that I have read. I was able to pick up the threads of the overall plot line and easily get into the story line of this mystery.

Amory is expecting her first baby. Her husband, Milo, who has been a wild card in their marriage, seems to be settling down. A monkey wrench is thrown at them when a young woman shows up claiming that she is Mrs. Milo Amory.

Has Milo been up to his old tricks or is something more going on? Yet another stranger appears at Thornecrest who sheds light on the situation.

A murder occurs and Milo and Amory are at odds. Milo wants Amory to stay out of it, prepare for the soon to arrive baby and stay safe. Amory cannot help herself. She has to help. Helping means investigating and leads to dangerous situations for not only Amory but for others as well.

I was provided a digital advance reader copy of this book by the publisher via Netgalley.
