Power in the Blood by Brenda Robertson Stewart

Review by Dawn Dowdle

Lettie Sue Wolfe is a forensic sculptor, but most of the town is unaware of her profession.  When local children find a human skull in a sinkhole, Lettie is asked to reconstruct the face. 

Lettie is shocked to find the face of her childhood friend's sister's face staring at her when she finished.  The sister had been missing for thirty years.  She decides to try to discover what happened to her friend's sister.  She uncovers information people would rather not be made public.  She finds herself in some sticky and dangerous situations 

She hires a distant friend who is a private investigator to help her discover the truth.  But can they find the truth without becoming the killer's next victims? 

I really enjoyed this story.  I found it difficult to put the book down.  There was enough suspense to keep me guessing.  It's a great cozy suspense.  I found the forensic matter to enhance the story, and the author did a great job of not going into too much detail.  It was just enough. 

I highly recommend this book and look forward to reading more from this author.
