Mystery on Inheritance Ranch by Phyllis H Moore

A Meg Miller Mystery, Book Three

Five of five stars given

“Meg Miller, retired librarian, recently downsized to a cottage, happy with her simple life, was the owner of thousands of acres, a ranch house, guest  house, caretaker’s house, two barns, stables, and a herd of cattle. There were papers waiting for her signature, a formality, the lawyer had said.”

When she arrives at the family inheritance, she is drawn back into memories of dreams and visions and voices that she had experienced since childhood.   Memories exhorting her to find the truth; right a decades old wrong.

This tale fascinated and absorbed me.  As Meg learns about her maternal family and its history, she also learns about and becomes comfortable with her familial gifts.  It’s a fascinating journey, that had me captivated.  She’s at first reluctant, but after a friend gives her a figurative head shake, she realizes and accepts that this is something she needs to embrace.  Moore has written Meg’s coming to terms with her abilities masterfully.

Moore’s story takes her readers along many pathways and side roads before reaching destination.  It includes a trip to a better understanding of her own mother by means of a journal.  A letter.  And an unresolved mystery.  The experience was spell-binding; it made the book one that I was loathe to put down.  I highly recommend it!
