"The Missing Heir" by Linda Weaver Clarke

Book Description

 September 20, 2014

Amelia Moore, the founder of the Moore Detective Agency, specializes in missing persons. Her cases have taken her to some very interesting places and put her in some dangerous situations, but she always solves the case. With the help of her partner, Rick Bonito, the business is flourishing. 

Dell Murphy has passed on and left a fortune to his nephew. He wants his nephew to continue his work at the orphanage in Mexico, but there is one problem. Neal Woods is missing! If Amelia and Rick can’t find him soon, the fortune will be turned over to Dell’s brother and sister who intend to close down “Uncle Dell’s Orphanage.” If that happens, where will the children go?


Some  people have asked me what a cozy mystery is and why it's different from a regular mystery. So here is the explanation:
What is a “cozy” mystery? It should be a G-rated story with no swearing or sex. It has many twists and turns and must have very likeable characters so that it can be turned into a seriesA cozy mystery focuses on the plot and characters, and the main character is usually an intelligent woman.

About the Author
Linda Weaver Clarke travels throughout the United States, teaching people to write their family history and autobiography. She has traveled to seventeen states and given over 400 workshops. She is the mother of six daughters and has several grandchildren. Clarke is also the author of six historical sweet romances, a mystery/adventure series, a new cozy mystery series, and a children’s book. All her books are family friendly.
MY REVIEW: "The Missing Heir" by Linda Weaver Clarke is the third book in the "Amelia Moore Detective Series" and like the other two stories this book doesn't disappoint.

Amelia and her partner Rick are hired to find Neil Woods, an doctor who runs a orphanage in Mexico.  He has to be found fast or the inheritance that Uncle Dell has left to him will be turned over to Dell's brother and sister who will shut the orphanage down. Will they find Neil in time? 

These books are mysteries with humor and just a little nerve tension action, just a enough to keep you turning the pages to see if they get the case solved and how. 

Amelia and Rick travel to Mexico and do some things that are on their bucket lists from the previous two books! You will still enjoy "The Missing Heir" even if you haven't read the other two books in this series.

I think these books are great reads because you get to laugh and also have a little adventure and see a romance develop that is clean!

I love the author's descriptions of the scenes and how she lets her reader know exactly what  the characters are feeling.

In this story, someone is hired to keep Neil Woods from being found and this reader was really surprised when I found out who did the hiring and who was hired.

I recommend this series to any reader as they are family friendly.  The scenes with the children will touch your heart if you love children. One of the characters even read the the book "Are You My Mother" to a little boy.(No it isn't the real mother). Guess I need to close this review before I give a spoiler alert.

I was given a free ebook copy of "The Missing Heir" by the author for an honest review!

I am giving this book five *****
