The story is set at Old World Wisconsin, a living history museum where author Kathleen Ernst worked as an interpreter and curator. After twelve years she moved on, but found herself missing the place! So she decided to write adult mysteries set largely at historic sites.
In this mystery, the second in the "Chloe Ellefson" series, Chloe delights in losing herself in antiques and folk traditions. But with an odd break-in followed by a grisly murder, she is drawn into a mystery involving a rare variety of Swiss cheese, a nearly extinct heirloom flower, and plain, old-fashioned greed. Softcover.
