When Torie O'Shea receives an invitation for her and her husband Rudy to stay at her favorite aunt's home in Oin Minnesota, she eagerly accepts. Accompanying them is her stepfather Sheriff Colin Brooke who rubs her the wrong way but who makes her mother very happy. Aunt Sissy plans for the two men to be out fishing while she and her niece try to find out what happened to a seventeen year old girl who lived over century ago in the same home Sissy lives in now.
Sissy found an unbound diary of the young woman she wants to learn about but with no names mentioned, she needs Torie's genealogical and historical background to try and figure out what became of her and why. While Torie is sifting through records and pestering people with questions, her stepfather winds up in jail suspect of killing the owner of the local marina. Two deaths, centuries apart; a coincidence or a family curse?
IN SHEEP'S CLOTHING is a refreshing wholesome and cerebral who-done-it starring a heroine who is so adorable it is impossible not to like her. Her relationship with her stepfather while at times acrimonious is also hilarious and adds some levity to a plot loaded with innumerable red herrings. Rett McPherson is a talented writer who creates refreshing original works

ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTFUL Aug. 31 2004
By D. Blankenship - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
What a delightful read. Character developement is excellent and the story line is smooth. Simple is not always the best, but in this case it works. I found myself actually caring about the character's. I seldom, very seldom, read mystries of any sort, but my wife pushed this one off one me, I read it to make her happy and I must say she did me a favor. Actually, some of our other younger authors could take some lessons with this one. Highly recommend this read. I think I will go out and get the author's other books now. Thank you Ms Macpherson.

Series just keeps getting better and better! June 1 2005
By Book Lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I read this book in one sitting. It has everything - a mystery, contemporary and historical family relation issues, and fantastic character development.

I found myself almost in tears about "Anna's story" and to me, that is GREAT writing!

This story was told with true emotion and sensitivity and it has become my favorite in the series so far (and I've enjoyed them all!).

Highly recommended.

Sorry but this is not really good reading March 28 2008
By JerseyGirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I think this author is an amateur. The attempts at humor are incredibly silly and NOT funny. The so called mystery is not a mystery at all. Sorry but I could not wait for this to end. The novel just seemed incredibly amateurish and the writing was very cliched.
The mystery is like a puzzle May 31 2014

Someone finds a very old manuscript. While trying to find out what actually happened to the writer, someone turns up dead back in her home town. Torie has to piece together clues and history to find out who did it (in the past and in the present), or her Mom's new husband will go to jail. If you like history and solving puzzles, this is the story for you. The more Torie O'Shea mysteries I read, the more I want to spend more time with her and her family in their charming little town.
