Details: Product Description A Killer Weaves a Deadly Blend of Betrayal and Revenge that Threatens Chloe’s Work … and Her LifeWhen offered a rare opportunity to help develop a fledgling historic site dedicated to Finnish American history and heritage, curator Chloe Ellefson journeys to the remote Northwoods of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.\n\nIn addition to the consultant job, she’s on a personal quest to learn about the enduring tradition of rag rug weaving.Encountering a dead body upon arrival, however, immediately puts that goal in jeopardy.Although suspicion soon falls on her new colleagues, Chloe is determined to persevere … even if it means ignoring the advice of her new husband, police officer Roelke McKenna. Can she identify the killer and complete her mission, or will all her dreams unravel? Review “The Weaver’s Revenge transports readers along the dirt roads, bucolic hayfields, and musty forests of Michigan’s sparsely populated Upper Peninsula with the insight of a true Finnish-American Yooper. One should feel welcomed and at ease, but murder, suspicion and terror leap from behind every spruce and slips beneath the sauna door.” – Jim Kurtti, Director, Finnish American Heritage Center (retired)”It is hard to put any of Kathleen’s books down once you get started. Her ability to spin a complex yarn using old world people, different time periods, places and artifacts is an amazing delight.” – Alan C. Pape, Founding member, Hanka Homestead Museum”The characters we are introduced to in this story are so interesting and believable. I quickly became invested in their lives. The author has plotted out a tightly woven mystery full of twists and turns. The ending ended up totally taking me by surprise. This is the 11th book in this series and I have loved every one of them.” – Lori Caswell, Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book blog From the Author As the Chloe Ellefson Mystery series has progressed, I’ve often featured large or well-known historic sites as settings. This time, I’m delighted to celebrate a small site: The Hanka Homestead Finnish Museum in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.The first time I visited, I knew curator Chloe would love the site as much as I do. This wonderful historic farm has a great story to tell about the Finnish American experience in the Upper Midwest.Equally important, however, is the story of how this museum came to be. The site was saved from ruin and restored by volunteers in the 1980s—and maintained and interpreted by volunteers since then.The Weaver’s Revenge provides a peek at the work of transforming abandoned property into a museum. It is, in part, a tribute to the unsung heros at the Hanka Homestead—and at the thousands of other historic sites across the country. I hope you enjoy!
