Genealogist Torie O'Shea Finds That Her Own Family Tree Is Rooted In Murder. . .
The December annual O'Shea family reunion is just kicking off when genealogist and town historian Torie O'Shea discovers a bad apple in her family tree. Someone has sent her several newspaper clippings reporting a fifty-year-old unsolved murder. The dead man is her great-grandfather-shot on his own front porch while his family was trapped inside.
Everybody knows great grandpa Keith died in a hunting accident. Or did he? Between fussing over too many house guests, husband, children-and the surprising news she's once again in the "family way"-- Torie gets a sneaking suspicion the truth may be as deadly now as it was fifty years ago. Soon she's shaking the family tree, never anticipating the shocking truths ready to drop-along with a motive for murder that could mean it's history for Torie as well.
