Returning to Virginia's post-revolutionary history and to characters introduced in Tail Gait, the story follows the Garth sisters and their husbands, neighbors to a brutal slaveholder whose murder at the hands of one of his slaves is neither unexpected nor unwarranted, especially when the impetus was an attack on that slave's wife. The sisters manage to smuggle the fugitive to safety in York, Pennsylvania, while ensuring that the circumstances underlying the entire ordeal stay long buried. Until now. Harry and her animal companions come closer to drawing a link between the past and the present. And in this centuries-spanning caper, they will discover that hiding who you really are may have mortal consequences.

Book felt like it had been written to meet a deadline. Very little character development and the plot didn't hang together very well.

I agree with first comment. I personally didn't like the back and forth for the historical aspects of the book. The other characters could be given new story lines. This is one of my favorite series and one my first cozy mysteries I ever read. I love anticipating the books but was sad at being disappointed when reading the book.

Not as good as earlier books in this series. I think Ms. Brown is tired of the characters.
