As the director of Barton Farm, a living history museum, Kelsey Cambridge is under-paid and under-appreciated, 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.

A fun romp into the Southern reenactment world, this cozy is a well-paced and entertaining mystery. Kelsey Cambridge is the director of a living history museum and a recently divorced single mom (a different type of character than we usually see in cozies, and that was a great aspect of the novel). Trying to make ends meet, she is dismayed and more than a little angry when the nephew of her benefactress threatens to pull all funding when he comes into the inheritance. Things get a little complicated when the nephew turns up dead the next day – and all evidence points to Kelsey.
I enjoyed not only the mystery but the building of Kelsey's character. Flower is a talented enough writer that she can do both without slowing down the novel. Sure, the mystery wasn't too complicated and there were a few grammatical errors (I would blame the publisher on that), it was just what I wanted in a cozy; unpretentious, likable, and well-rounded characters; a possibility of romance; and a dramatic mystery. I can't wait to see what is in store for Kelsey in the next book, The Final Tap!

Great setting. Lots of red herrings. Poor proof reading. Look forward to more in this series.

I don't know why the editor and beta readers etc. did such a poor job but this book got on my nerves after about the 10th error. I am usually fairly lenient but this was ridiculous.
"Cynthia, I'm so happy to see you here, but you didn't have come."
