Short and Sweet Book Reviews #71 - Justice Ascending by Rebecca Zanetti, Designated Daughters by Margaret Maron,The Buzzard Table by Margaret Maron

The Buzzard Table (Deborah Knott Mysteries, #18)The Buzzard Table by Margaret Maron
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another gentle mystery featuring Deborah Knott. There is a lot of dialog that features the people and everyday events that Deborah, Dwight, their family and others living in Colleton County experience giving a feel for the setting of the story. This mystery is a little different as someone is looking for revenge and Dwight and Deborah are drawn into the resulting murder. Look for a very different ending. Deborah and her family continue to be the center of some very interesting storylines.

Designated Daughters (Deborah Knott Mysteries. #19)Designated Daughters by Margaret Maron
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I found this story to be a little lighter in content and the mystery to be pushed a little further to the side as other events took center stage. They were all connected to the death of Deborah's aunt and it was interesting to see how the dots to events that happened in the past were followed. At the heart of the story was the fact that secrets have a way of coming back to haunt you. I enjoyed the book and as I am hooked on this series will continue to follow Deborah, Dwight and Cal as events and murder seem to find them wherever they go.

Justice Ascending (The Scorpius Syndrome, #3)Justice Ascending by Rebecca Zanetti
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is Trace and Sami's story. Trace is fighting the effects of the Scorpius virus and watching him fight to keep the darkness from overcoming him is a big part of the story. Sami is hiding a secret and fighting her attraction to Trace at the same time. Zanetti wove those two facts into a story that brings more of the world left in the aftermath of the Scorpius virus into focus. All of the previous characters are part of the plot. New information is revealed and new allies are brought into the story. A good romance and a nice addition to the world building. I look forward to the next book to see who will be the featured romance and where the plot will go from here.
