To Evil Comes a Daughter
Review by Nancy
You don’t get the title until the ending but the getting TO the title – well, it’s one heck of a ride!
Sam Munro is a British journalist for a high tech car magazine. He travels to Montana to get a look at one cherry 1970 Mustang Mach 1 belonging to Doug Bamber. Doug and Sam hit it off and Sam is invited to Doug’s BBQ the next evening.
He checks into the Inn he’s staying at and immediately things start happening Mirrors with HELP ME written on them being one. At Doug’s Sam meets many locals including a couple named Alison and Dave. It doesn’t hit him until much later, because he’d not met them before;but they are the parents of the girl he was in love with in high school. He loved and lost her because he wasn’t strong enough/brave enough to stand up to the boy who hassled them. When he asks Doug how Jane is, he is devastated to hear she has been missing for over 6 years and presumed dead. Suddenly the Mustang article is on the backburner and miscues, interviews and some odd-acting locals make Sam stay longer to seek out clues. He finds much more than he bargained for!
This is an edge-of-your-seat book. I loved it but was sad to see it end. Sam is a great character and Ashley, his girlfriend is a personality all her own. Great for the mystery lover but you might want to leave a light on.

This playboy has finally met his match...
sick of Genies. Too beautiful, too sure of themselves, too
"celebrity". And way too eager to grant wishes in the worldwide
Lottery that entices mortals into buying tickets in the hope of winning their
desires. Charlie would rather walk naked through Times Square than buy a
ticket. Unfortunately, her friend springs for one in Charlie’s name – and it
gets picked. She refuses to get sucked in and has no qualms about saying so to
the famously arrogant, devilishly handsome Genie at her door. Sexy Blue Eyes
will just have to take no for an answer.
More than 15 million adults and their immediate families in America today must cope with a patient suffering from severe mental illness. In too many cases, these families cannot or do not know how to get help for their loved ones.
SANDY’S GIFT: WALKING WITH THE LIGHT (Cedar Forge, 2017, softcover) by William P. Dunn IV is an intimate and shocking true story that tells of the tragic plight of Sandra Dunn, a mother and loving wife whose life takes a tragic turn when she suddenly falls victim to severe mental illness; how the healthcare profession and the law prevented her from getting the treatment she needed; how it destroyed her family and nearly got them killed. By sharing his story, Dunn hopes that people will have a better understanding of the ravages of mental illness and know how to cope with them better.
I have had a slight taste of what it is like to deal with a relative with a mental illness. Although, my exposure was limited. Mr. Dunn did a marvelous…
Doc Ford has been involved in many strange cases. This may be one of the strangest. A legendary charter captain and guide named Tootsie Barlow has come to him, muttering about a curse. The members of his extended family have suffered a bizarre series of attacks, and Barlow is convinced it has something to do with a multiple murder in 1925, in which his family had a shameful part.
Ford doesn’t believe in curses, but as he and his friend Tomlinson begin to investigate, following the trail of the attacks from Key Largo to Tallahassee, they, too, suffer a series of near-fatal mishaps. Is it really a curse? Or just a crime spree? The answer lies in solving a near-hundred-year-old murder . . . and probing the mind of a madman.
This is my first introduction to this series. At first I struggled with this book. In fact, after just a few chapters I thought about giving up on this book. Yet, I told myself to give it at least a few more chapters. I am glad that I did. There was potentia…
