Always Time to Die: A Novel
Title: Always Time to Die: A Novel
Author: Elizabeth Lowell
Hired by the eccentric aunt of New Mexico’s multimillionaire governor Quintrell to research their family, genealogist Carolina May gets more than she had bargained for when she finds herself falling for the enigmatic Daniel Duran and stumbles into a dark and dangerous secret about the Quintrell family that threatens her life.
The powerful Quintrell family of New Mexico has spent decades in the public eye. Now the recent death of the clan’s patriarch, a former U.S. senator, has placed his son, Governor Josh Quintrell, squarely in the spotlight as he prepares his run for the highest political office in the land. It is not a good time to be rattling skeletons in the family’s closets.
Researching personal histories isn’t just Carolina “Carly” May’s profession, it’s her passion. But digging into the past is raising troubling questions about the would-be president’s private life, his late father and catatonic mother, and the grisly street crime that left his notorious drug-addicted sister dead. And it soon becomes frighteningly apparent that the motivation of the dotty old woman who hired Carly might be something more akin to revenge—and that someone is determined to remove the inquisitive genealogist from the picture by any means necessary.
