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.

History is an important part of our culture and I find it interesting those that choose to reenact battles from American History. They have to have a lot of knowledge of history to be able to act in character from a time a century or more ago.

I thought the story was well written and there were plenty of characters to think might be the killer. I did figure it out but second guessed myself several times for a certain reason that I won’t say because it would give it away!

I enjoyed getting to know all the characters, and there are quite a few! I have to say that I was not sad that Maxwell was murdered, he was not nice or up to any good.

Definitely a series to watch and we give it 4 paws up.
