Sissy found an unbound diary of the young woman she wants to learn about but with no names mentioned, she needs Torie's genealogical and historical background to try and figure out what became of her and why. While Torie is sifting through records and pestering people with questions, her stepfather winds up in jail suspect of killing the owner of the local marina. Two deaths, centuries apart; a coincidence or a family curse?
IN SHEEP'S CLOTHING is a refreshing wholesome and cerebral who-done-it starring a heroine who is so adorable it is impossible not to like her. Her relationship with her stepfather while at times acrimonious is also hilarious and adds some levity to a plot loaded with innumerable red herrings. Rett McPherson is a talented writer who creates refreshing original works
I found myself almost in tears about "Anna's story" and to me, that is GREAT writing!
This story was told with true emotion and sensitivity and it has become my favorite in the series so far (and I've enjoyed them all!).
Invited by her favorite aunt, Sissy, to come for a visit, Torie endures the long trip from Missouri to Minnesota in the company of her husband and stepfather. Once there, the men go fishing and Torie gets to work doing what she does best: using genealogy to solve mysteries. Torie's uncle Joe wants her to find out what's going on with her aunt. Aunt Sissy wants Torie to figure out who wrote an old diary she unearthed in the attic of the century-old house. Even though the teenaged diarist never gives her name, Torie uses her professional skills to figure out that she was Anna Bloomquist, whose family owned the farm and the house back in the 1850's. Anna, her mother, and her infant daughter were all reported killed in a house fire only a few months after her lover and his father were murdered. Torie tries to uncover who may have committed those 150-year-old murders and who might think that the job still isn't done even now.
