Memory of Muskets
by Kathleen Ernst

A Memory of Muskets is an engrossing historical mystery that captured my attention from the very beginning and never let go.
~The power of words . . .

The plot is well woven and well developed, excellent historical reconstruction, interesting characters: this is a very enjoyable reading.

Ernst has a rare talent for combining a genuinely compelling mystery with a wonderful history lesson. In this book, I especially appreciated the nods to the German and Scandinavian heritage of the local populations.
~Back Porchervations

Ernst is a strong storyteller…Her love for the place (Old World Wisconsin) and the history shines bright in every one of her stories.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book

This is an amazing book full of historical references and multiple layers.

Curator Chloe Ellefson is happily planning to spotlight home-front challenges and German immigrants at Old World Wisconsin’s first Civil War reenactment―but her overbearing boss scorns her ideas and proposes staging a mock battle. And when a reenactor is found dead at one of the historic site’s German farms, Chloe’s boyfriend, cop Roelke McKenna, suspects murder.

The more Roelke learns about reenacting, the more he fears that a killer will join the ranks at Chloe’s special event. Then Chloe discovers a disturbing secret about Roelke’s Civil War-era ancestors. Together they struggle to solve crimes past and present . . . before Chloe loses her job and another reenactor loses his life.
