Genealogist Torie O'Shea is out birding as part of New Kassell, Missouri's first ever bird-watching Olympics, when someone starts shooting at her and her partner. Running for her life, she stumbles over an antique trunk and discovers a badly beaten dead body stuffed inside.

On the heels of this gruesome discovery, musicologist Glen Morgan shows up at Torie's textile museum, claiming to be her cousin, and claiming to have proof that many of the most famous songs played by the Morgan Family, famous country music singers, were written by her grandfather.

As a genealogist and the head of the local historical society, Torie doesn't appreciate anyone shaking up a family tree that she has spent years putting together. But following some serious snooping into both the shooting, and Glen's exorbitant claim, Torie unearths well-hidden secrets about her own family, and the town.

This is a great cozy series with Misssouri flavor - set in a small river town, near St. Louis. Enjoyable, quick read.
