As the director of Barton Farm, a living history museum, Kelsey Cambridge is underpaid and underappreciated, but she loves every minute of it. Determined to keep the struggling museum open, she plans to impress Barton Farm's wealthy benefactress, Cynthia Cherry, with a Civil War reenactment on the farm's grounds.Unfortunately, the first shot in the battle isn't from a period soldier. It's from Cynthia's greedy nephew, Maxwell, who fires a threat at Kelsey to cut the museum's funding. The next morning, things go from bad to worse when Kelsey discovers Maxwell dead. Now Kelsey is the number one suspect, and she must start her own investigation to save Barton Farm...and herself.Praise: "History and Civil War buffs will enjoy the historical details woven through the mystery, and Kelsey and the secondary characters are well drawn and sympathetic. This one will appeal to readers who enjoy contemporary cozies with a history frame."―Booklist"Very well written...with great characterization, history, plot, and humor galore. A definite 5-star."―Suspense Magazine"Flower combines a plethora of suspects, a soupçon of history, and a dash of romance."―Kirkus Reviews"Flower peppers [The Final Reveille] with enough historical detail and snarky one-liners to make readers intrigued to see what she'll do next."―Library Journal"A thoroughly enjoyable mystery with history, humor, and heart!"―Krista Davis, New York Times bestselling author of The Domestic Diva Mystery Series"A spunky heroine in a fast-paced mystery...what a fun book to read!"―Mary Ellis, author of The Civil War Heroines Series
