    Death By Greed

    This is my first Chloe Ellefson Mystery so felt like the chracters were not as fleshed out as if I had read the prior books. Roelke McKenna is a police detective and the love of Chloe's life. He is struggling with guilt over his actions that must have happened in an earlier book. His story line was a bit boring for me. Chloe has embarked on a research journey to help in the restoration of an old Belgian barn. Flash backs of the early settlers and their struggles were the redeeming parts of the book. Seraphine's family ancestry and her lace-making talent is what the present characters uncover and what Ernst uses to build this murder mystery. The genealogy is what made me give this a four star instead of a three. If you are a fan of "Murder She Wrote" then this will be your ticket for a favorite read. "Copy of this book was supplied by Midnight Ink via Netgalley with no requirements for a review. Comments here are my honest opinion."

    Entertaining Story

    Well-written and researched, THE LACEMAKER'S SECRET weaves together the past and the present (or, more accurately, the 1980s) to create an entertaining story. Memorable characters, an intriguing mystery, and a fascinating look into the life of early settlers make this an enjoyable read for any fan of the genre. Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book.

    The past and present converge

    I’m not a big fan of stories that switch between different time periods, but I am a major fan of historical fiction and mysteries, and this book had me changing my tune on the two time periods the story is told from. Chloe Ellefson is a historical curator that has taken on an assignment in the Belgian American community to share their history in a living museum. As she researches the area and culture to help furnish a home to represent life of the settlers and their families in 1915, we also see the story unfolding from the 1800s when twin sisters in Belgium become orphans and one emigrates to the United States with her beloved. I found the characters and story line solid and greatly enjoyed learning more about the Belgian immigrants and their history. While this is a heavier read than I usually care for, I will be checking out the first eight books in the series as well.
