2 posts | 4 read | 7 to read
Trying to leave painful memories behind her, Chloe Ellefson is making a fresh start. She's the new collections curator at Old World Wisconsin, an outdoor ethnic museum showcasing 1870s settlement life. On her first day, Chloe meets with an elderly woman who begs her to find a priceless eighteenth-century Norwegian ale bowl that had been donated to the museum years ago. But before Chloe can find the heirloom and return it to her, the woman dies in a suspicious car crash. Digging up the history and whereabouts of the rare artifact quickly turns dangerous. Chloe discovers that someone is desperately trying to cover up all traces of the bowl's existenceby any means necessary. Assisting Chloe is police officer Roelke McKenna, whose own haunting past compels him to protect her. To catch the covetous killer, Chloe must solve a decades-old puzzle . . . before she becomes a part of history herself. Praise: "Character-driven with mystery aplenty, Old World Murder is a sensational read."Julia Spencer-Fleming, Anthony and Agatha Award-winning author of I Shall Not Want "In curator Chloe Ellefson, Ernst has created a captivating character with humor, grit, and a tangled history of her own that needs unraveling. Enchanting!"Sandi Ault, author of the WILD Mystery series and recipient of the Mary Higgins Clark Award

This one was ok. The characters were interesting enough to make me want to read/listen to the next one, but the pop culture references really made it feel dated.

I've been reading this delightful series of books in the Chloe Ellefson Mystery collection. They were recommended to me by a coworker and gives a great glimpse into some interesting mysteries and some Wisconsin history. I recommend these as easy reads that still keep you captivated throughout.
