Died In the Wool

With each new Torie O'Shea mystery, Rett MacPherson's stories become a little darker, and a little stronger. Died In the Wool is one of the best in the series.

Torie O'Shea is a genealogist and local historian in New Kassal, Missouri, a small town of 1,000 on the banks of the Mississippi. As owner of the Gaheimer House Museum and Events Committee Chair for the town, she's involved in all of the city events. And, if she isn't involved in something, Torie doesn't hesitate to stick her nose in where it doesn't belong.

When the Kendall House goes up for sale, Torie wants to turn it into another museum. It's the local house with a history. Stories say that three Kendall siblings committed suicide there shortly after World War I. Since the current owner thinks the house is haunted by Glory Kendall, he's more than willing to have Torie purchase the quilts she made, and pry into the family history.

As always, it's fascinating to watch Torie research family and local history, looking for a solution to a mystery. The Kendall story is not a pretty one. But, MacPherson lightens the story with the family background that her fans enjoy. Torie's middle daughter, Mary, is once again in trouble. Torie's father-in-law, Colin, is bored with his new career, and begs to tag along as she investigates. And, the details about quilts and roses add depth.

Rett MacPherson's Died In the Wool is another successful combination of dark secrets and loving family life.
