I hope this finds you well, warm, and reading good books.

Chloe fans have been asking me lots of questions about the next book in the series, and now I can answer some of them! Here is the story's synopsis:  


In this 5th installment, curator and occasional sleuth Chloe Ellefson is off to Minneapolis to help her friend ArCover of Tradition of Deceit, the fifth Chloe Ellefson mystery by Kathleen iel with a monumental task. 

Ariel must write a proposal for a controversial and expensive restoration project: convert an abandoned flour mill, currently used as shelter by homeless people, into a museum.

When a dead body is found stuffed into a grain chute, Chloe's attention turns from milling to murder.


Back in Milwaukee, Chloe's love interest Roelke has been slammed with the news that a fellow officer (and close friend) was shot and killed on duty. 


Sifting through clues from both past and present, Chloe and Roelke discover dangerous secrets that put their lives--and their trust in each other--at risk.


You'll be able to read the whole story this fall. Want to be one of the very first to read Tradition of Deceit?  Pre-order it now from your favorite independent bookseller or Amazon!   


I'm having great fun with the series, and thanks to readers like you, my publisher has asked for two more after this one!


Warm regards,

                                     Kathleen Signature
