9780738744704: Death on the Prairie (A Chloe Ellefson Mystery)

Chloe Ellefson and her sister, Kari, have long dreamed of visiting each historic site dedicated to Laura Ingalls Wilder. When Chloe takes custody of a quilt once owned by the beloved author, the sisters set out on the trip of a lifetime, hoping to prove that Wilder stitched it herself.

But death strikes as the journey begins, and trouble stalks their fellow travelers. Among the "Little House" devotees are academic critics, greedy collectors, and obsessive fans. Kari is distracted by family problems, and unexpected news from Chloe's boyfriend jeopardizes her own future. As the sisters travel deeper into Wilder territory, Chloe races to discover the truth about a precious artifact―and her own heart―before a killer can strike again.

From the Author:

The Little House books by Laura Ingalls Wilder were perhaps the first volumes of historical fiction I read as a child. Growing up in suburban Maryland, Wisconsin's "Big Woods" seemed a far-distant and amazing place! I was fascinated by the people and adventures I discovered within the pages of each book in the series. Little did I know that one day I would move permanently to Wisconsin.

I never lost my soft spot for the Little House books, and was delighted to find that re-reading them as an adult brought new levels of understanding to Wilder's pioneer experiences. My older sister and I have visited each homesite devoted to the famous author, and I've known for some time that Chloe and her sister Kari needed to do the same. After finishing the previous Chloe mystery, Tradition of Deceit, the time was right.

In Death on the Prairie, Chloe and Kari embark on an epic road trip tour to each of Laura's homesites. Their visits, of course, do not go as smoothly as mine! I hope you enjoy their adventures--and if you're a Little House fan, I hope the book evokes some happy memories.
