Lori Reynolds thought she’d never return to the home where she spent her teenage years, but her sister Kay’s death from a fall down a staircase, changes all that. Having recently spoken with her sister on the phone, and knowing how worried Kay had been about all the strange things happening in her house, Lori suspects that her sister’s fall was anything but an accident and she resolves to investigate. Now that she has arrived for Kay’s funeral, she is caught up in the very family battles that she had tried to avoid when she left seven years ago. From Kay’s husband, Trevor, to his daughter from a previous marriage, Selena, to Lori’s first love and now Selena’s husband, Marc, to Trevor’s brother, Derek, to Selena’s grandmother, to Trevor and Kay’s daughter, Amber, the tension runs high. Then it really explodes when Trevor’s first wife, Jocelyn, decides to make an appearance. Did any of these family members have a motive strong enough to kill Kay? And if so, what was it? Kay moves closer and closer to the truth behind her sister’s fatal fall.
In Fatal Fall by Teresa LaRue Lori Reynolds learns that her older sister Kay has died in a fall, but immediately assumes someone has killed her. After years of staying away, she returns to her childhood home to try to find out what really happened to her sister.
There is lots of family drama, in the form of her sort-of-step-sister Selena, who is married to Lori’s ex-beau, and Selena’s long-lost mother who returns as soon as Kay is out of the way. Certain that the police are wrong and Kay’s death was not an accident, Lori puts herself in danger by asking questions that someone doesn’t want her asking.
Lots of suspects and plenty of danger keep this mystery moving along at a great pace. While there were times when I became frustrated with Lori for being so stubborn, I can’t say that I would have acted any differently had it been my sister. Cozy and traditional mystery fans both should enjoy this story.
