If I were to visit your hometown, where would you recommend that I go? I like seeing and doing things that aren't in all the guide books. My heart is still in Kansas. Good thing, since that is where my series is set. We would finish the day with a grand tour of the Hoxie Feedyard. It feeds over 50, head of cattle and is a great example of how agribusiness changed the High Plains. You have total control over casting a movie based on your life. Which actor would you cast as you?
I think Meryl Streep because if she can portray Margaret Thatcher , she can portray chaos. If you could have in your possession one signed first edition of any book in the world, which book would that be? Green Dolphin Street. The author, Elizabeth Goudge , is a master of complex characterization. Although intricate plots are central to her writing, as well as the skilled integration of history, Green Dolphin Street soars through her ability to lovingly depict very difficult people.
The tale of two sisters both in love with the same man is central and the strange turn in this star-crossed romance is heart-wrenching. I adore this book.
Lethal Lineage: A Lottie Albright Mystery #2
All will be well! How did you celebrate when you first heard you were to be published? What did you do the first time you saw one of your books on a shelf in a bookstore? I got the call at the Sheridan County Historical Society. In real life, I edited the county history books, just as my protagonist, Lottie Albright, does in my series. She made me get on my knees and BEG before she would hand me the phone. I flew out of the courthouse and out to the truckline and told my husband. We went to the Elks that night and had a steak.
When I saw my book, I was amazed. Amazed, grateful, then worried. Click on it to see it in a larger size.

The Episcopalians in Lottie Albright's corner of western Kansas have worked hard to build a small church on a parcel of land that sits on the corners of four counties. The first day they gather together for a sermon, communion, and the confirmation of Lottie's niece. The bishop gives an inappropriate sermon filled with hellfire and brimstone, and everyone is thunderstruck when beloved Reverend Mary Farnsworth drops the chalice during communion and locks First Line: Happiness happens.
The bishop gives an inappropriate sermon filled with hellfire and brimstone, and everyone is thunderstruck when beloved Reverend Mary Farnsworth drops the chalice during communion and locks herself in the anteroom. Lottie's sister Josie, a psychologist, stays after the service to comfort Mary, but Lottie orders her sister to leave when the locked door is opened and Mary's body is found on the floor.
Frightened by the bishop's strange rituals for disposing of the spilled wine, Lottie would like nothing better than to leave, but as undersheriff, she must stay to attend to the death. An elderly lady who attended the service insists that a man kneeling next to her scared Reverend Mary into a heart attack which gives credence to Lottie's belief that this was not a natural death.
Calling in other law enforcement agencies, Lottie discovers many more questions than answers as the investigation moves forward. The first book in this series, Deadly Descent, relied a great deal on Lottie's skill as an historian digging through old records, documents, and genealogical charts. In Lethal Lineage, Lottie finds herself focusing more on the oral histories of several county residents. She also realizes that she's bitten off more than she can chew in her work for the county historical society and as undersheriff.
It is something on which both she and her husband must come to some sort of agreement while Lottie tries to find a killer and deal with a sheriff whose family has ridden roughshod over a neighboring county for decades. Hinger brings sparsely populated western Kansas to life by seamlessly including details of how poor counties constantly battle budget constraints as well as how feuds, secrets and lies never seem to die out no matter how many decades pass.
Have you ever stopped to wonder how many fewer books would be written if people everywhere would simply tell the truth? Her three main characters-- Lottie, her sister Josie, and her husband Keith-- are strong, vivid people who care for one another deeply although they don't always see eye-to-eye. I feel as if I've known them my whole life.
religious setting/victim | Buried Under Books
In just two books I've fallen in love with the setting, the characters, and the way Charlotte Hinger can tell a story. Lethal Lineage stands alone quite well, but I think it would be best to start at the beginning so you can fully appreciate the fascinating work Charlotte does at the historical society, as well as the dynamics between the characters.
This is a highly recommended book in a highly recommended series. I can't wait for book number three! Feb 24, D rated it really liked it. This is the second book in the series but it was not necessary to have read the first one. This one is a stand alone mystery novel.
The intent was to celebrat This is the second book in the series but it was not necessary to have read the first one. The intent was to celebrate the first service in the church including the confirmation of one of their number and then join for a picnic and day of music at Fiene's Folly. What actually happened was a dreadful combination of a thundering sermon from the visiting suffragan Bishop, the Right Reverend Ignatius P. Talesbury, that blamed the congregation for everything from the barren land to the sinking economy. This is followed by the spilling of the communion wine and a mysterious death.
Feel every word with award-winning performances
The view point character in this first person mystery, is Lottie Albright, county historian and under sheriff. This dual position allows her to get first hand information about events as they occur. She also is involved in a dispute with an adjoining county sheriff, as she tries to gather information about the background of the murder victim. With a few caveats, this is a good page turner. The western Kansas background is interesting and well done.
