As the director of Barton Farm, a living history museum in Ohio, Kelsey Cambridge is underpaid and underappreciated, but she loves every minute of it. Determined to keep the struggling farm open, she plans to impress the museum’s wealthy benefactress, Cynthia Cherry, with a Civil War reenactment on the farm’s grounds.
Unfortunately, the first shot in the battle isn’t from a period soldier. It’s from Cynthia’s greedy nephew, Maxwell, who fires a threat at Kelsey to cut the museum’s funding. The next morning, things go from bad to worse when Kelsey discovers Maxwell dead. Now Kelsey is the police’s number one suspect, and she must start her own investigation to save Barton Farm . . . and herself.

My Review:

Get swept away back to the civil war era with this historical whodunit that will have you so involved with the story you will find it hard to put down. With a little bit of history and a cast of characters so well developed you will be eagerly turning the pages and wanting more when it is over. I really enjoyed reading this book and am looking forward to seeing what will happen next with Kelsey.
