The Chloe Ellefson series combines history and mystery with a little bit of romance! For adults and mature teens, these traditional mysteries feature the reluctant sleuth Chloe and her boyfriend Roelke McKenna. She’s a curator at the museum Old World Wisconsin; he’s a cop in the nearby village of Eagle. This award-winning series often includes historical threads connected to historic sites.
In this mystery, Chloe needs distraction from the unsettling family secret she’s just learned and she hopes a consulting job at Green Bay’s Heritage Hill Historical Park, where an old Belgian-American farmhouse is being restored, will be a relaxing escape. Instead, she discovers a body in a century old bake-oven. Inspired by a courageous Belgian woman, Chloe must untangle clues to reveal secrets old and new before the killer strikes again. Softcover.
