Chloe Ellefson is making a fresh start in Wisconsin as collections curator at Old World Wisconsin, an outdoor ethnic museum showcasing 19th century settlement life. On her first day, an elderly woman begs her to find a Norwegian ale bowl that had been earlier donated to the museum. However, before Chloe can find the heirloom to return it to her, the elderly woman dies in a suspicious car crash. She soon discovers that digging up the history and location of the bowl is dangerous: someone is desperately trying to cover up the bowl's existence, by any means necessary.

First book in a series of 10 titles thru year 2019.

I wondered if the setting of a living history museum site in small town Wisconsin, near Madison, would hold my interest; I found it to be a refreshing change of pace from other typical small town settings. The main character, Chloe, starts a responsible new job in her hometown region, at the history site, meanwhile struggling with emotional pains of her recent past. Chloe shows her stamina in confounding situations. The tension between Chloe and a local police officer is another dimension of interest to the reader.

The story became a page turner, after a slow start.

This is the first book in the series of 10 titles thru yr 2019. The next in the series is
The Heirloom Murders.
