Praise for Rett MacPherson Killing Cousins "Torie is a warm, knowledgeable and thoroughly American heroine." -St. Petersburg Times "Absorbing." -Romantic Times "A fine series." -Library Journal A Misty Mourning "Unexpected and often amusing, another fine outing for Torie O'Shea and the oddballs she attracts without effort."-St. Louis Post-Dispatch "[MacPherson] is generous with her wit, and her descriptions of the landscape of Appalachia and the people who live there are especially evocative."-Publishers Weekly "Nothing, certainly not murder, dampens Torie's perkiness."-Kirkus Reviews "MacPherson once again displays her mastery of the cozy form, adroitly mixing charming characters (both new and old), a plot steeped in family drama, plenty of humor, and just enough grit to keep the story grounded in the real world."--Booklist A Comedy of Heirs "Plenty of entertaining characters, and MacPherson skillfully connects the family's many subplots...A heartrending tale of family pride and the cover-ups to keep it intact." -Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Well paced...filled with intriguing characters and fascinating details about genealogy and quilting, and adorned with the picturesque atmosphere of a Mississippi Valley winter."-Booklist A Veiled Antiquity "The nicely evoked countryside, the fascinating details of a genealogical investigation, and an unusual protagonist make MacPherson a storyteller to watch." - Contra Costa Times "Breezy and fun...[MacPherson] pioneers the excellent fictional entrée of genealogical research." - Kirkus Reviews "Mark Twain seems reincarnated in the witty MacPherson, as she spins themes involving families with secret pasts, nobility in disguise, and hidden treasure." - Booklist
