Dr. Eric Darcy's patient offers him a bit of a surprise. She claims that many years ago, she gave birth to four babies, not three as records show. She's convinced during her delivery that there was a fourth infant that was stolen from her. Her proof is that she's just seen that infant, now a grown woman. She wants Eric to uncover the truth. Before he can even begin to investigate, someone breaks into his home office. Worse, his client is found dead.
While he's first concerned that his client may be delusional with her advancing age, her death and a missing medical file convince him there may be truth to her claim. As he begins investigating with the help of his late wife's sister, a private investigator, it's clear that someone doesn't want the truth revealed. Uncovering the truth could prove to be deadly for Dr. Darcy.
I've read every book in the Safe Harbor Medical Romance series, so the characters, medical facility, and town are all like family and friends. I'm a big fan of cozy mysteries, so I've been excited for the release of The Case of the Questionable Quadruplet. Starting with the characters, I like the pairing of Dr. Darcy and his sister-in-law. The familiarity and chemistry between the two make for enjoyable reading. If you're a long-time fan of the Safe Harbor series, you'll recognize some names and there's definitely a connection to the medical practice.
The mystery kept me on my toes. There are plenty of characters you will believe could be behind the murders. It was a change of pace from the romances and involved a bit of adjustment because I was so used to this setting as being one where people fall in love, but it worked. It's an enjoyable cozy mystery and definitely a series to watch.
Look for The Case of the Questionable Quadruplet on April 5th.
