A Hostage to Heritage is another of Suzanne's books set in the American War of Independence. Rather than following a campaign, this one is geographically more localised in the Wilmington area. Here, the main character is a soldier responsible for solving a particular crime, who needs to bridge some of the gaps between the British occupying force and the civilian population. The various groups and factions, and their relationships, are drawn sympathetically.

One of the key themes here - as suggested by the title - is that individuals' past experiences and actions continually trail into the present. Meetings with old friends and enemies, and recapitulation of old patterns of behaviour, shape much of the plot. The question that both characters and reader have to face, is whether past events need to be set aside, confronted, or integrated into current choices.

The book is standalone, but some familiarity with the characters from earlier books will help to follow the changing dynamics between them. An enjoyable read, and one where you have to keep your wits about you as the story twists and turns.

In the second book of Suzanne Adair's Michael Stoddard American Revolution mystery thriller series, the reader finds themselves in the year 1781. When a group of bandits kidnap a noblewoman's son, Michael Stoddard is once again assigned to investigate. Numerous twists and turns link Stoddard with the mother in an incredible, unpredictable way.

Once again, Suzanne Adair has written a wonderful whodunit with plenty of intrigue, interest, and thrills. Wonderfully complex characters and a fascinating story line are coupled with terrific writing. And all this makes this a great book to sink your teeth in. Although this is the second book in the series, it stands alone and does not have to be read after the first book. Michael Stoddard is a charismatic protaganist, highly likeable, cursed with a touch of bad luck that always makes the story more interesting.

Suzanne Adiar knows how to write a great whodunit in a challenging historical period as its setting. There's always lots going on in Suzanne's novels. The story never lags and keeps a reader's interest until the end. With every new release, her books get better and better. Bravo Suzanne! Another great one to add to your list of books. Very enjoyable!
