“She felt she needed to give herself the proverbial pinch to see if this was real. A week ago she was packing up her apartment in Delaware in preparation for the move. Now she was in Ryland, Maine, the director of the Ryland Historical Society. A real place, a real job. It felt like a dream.”
Just a few days into her new job as director of a busy historical society and museum nestled in the mountains of quaint Ryland, Maine, flatlander Julie Williamson discovers all is not as it should be. Her dream job is more of a nightmare. She expected to find an eccentric board of trustees, a cool reception from the assistant director who had wanted her job, and a necessary adjustment to small-town life, but she didn’t expect that some of the museum’s most valuable artifacts, including a letter from Abraham Lincoln to Hannibal Hamlin, would quickly turn up missing. And, when a murder hits especially close to home for Julie, she becomes embroiled in an ever-widening and complex mystery.
Stealing History is sure to enthrall readers who love to curl up with a good mystery, especially one that weaves details of small town life, delightful characters, and history into a suspenseful tale that keeps them guessing up until the last page.
