In Rett MacPherson?s charming cozy mysteries, genealogist Torie O?Shea always seems to be right in the middle of it all in the goings-on in New Kassel, Missouri. When a drought hits the tiny river town and the depth of the mighty Mississippi lowers, Torie is one of the first on the scene to see what the water has revealed: the decades-old wreckage of a riverboat. Soon, the rumors that surrounded its sinking have resurfaced as well and are swirling all over town, most notably about the existence of a cache of diamonds thought to be on board that was never recovered. Before long, a trove of treasure seekers flocks to town, and inevitably, tragedy strikes amid the feverish competition of the treasure hunt. Meanwhile, Torie is staggered by another discovery---the existence of a half sister she never knew she had. Shocked and surprised, she looks around for a distraction, and decides to dig into what really caused the wreck, as well as the location of the missing diamonds. All in all, the combination of personal intrigue and cold-blooded murder makes Blood Relations a sparkling addition to a terrific mystery series.

A drought lowers the level of the river and exposes a very old steamboat with several mysteries. One morning they find a body on the riverbank. Tori is working on connecting the dots and solving all of the mysteries including the long missing heiress and the bag of diamonds. Tori also finds a half sibling that she never knew she had. Rett is great at weaving together history and mystery. Another fun, entertaining mystery with some genealogy thrown in.

Love Rett MacPherson! Just discovered this Torie O'Shea mysteries set about 4 months ago and had to find them all! They are a wonderful read! Just disappointed there aren't more of them!

Small-town Missouri genealogist Torie O'Shea is New Kassel's unofficial "town historian" and also works as a tour guide at the Gaheimer House, a historic mansion in town. When a drought causes the Mississippi River's level to drop, the remains of the steamer "The Phantom", a steamship which sank mysteriously in 1919, become visible right outside of town. There are two mysteries associated with the sinking of The Phantom. A New York heiress named Jessica Huntleigh disappeared when the ship sank, but her body was never found. Second, a passenger was rumored to have a large amount of uncut diamonds in his baggage, and these were never found either. So when the ship resurfaces after all these years, the local historians, thrill seekers and treasure hunters are clamoring to search the ship's wreckage. But when one of the local college professsors investigating the steamer is found dead at the scene of the wreck, the shipwreck turns into a murder investigation. Piqued by the mysteries of the missing heiress and the missing diamonds, genealogist Torie O'Shea does a little genealogical digging of her own to try to solve all three mysteries. Oh yes, Torie also discovers a heretofore unknown half-sister of her own.

The three mysteries in this story are extremely well developed and intertwined. I loved how Torie used her genealogical research to help unearth the truth behind the stories. And just when I thought the mysteries were all solved,the author throws in a surprising twist just 20 pages from the end.

Up until now, I had only read the first book in this series, called "Family Skeletons". The first book was an enjoyable debut, but this one was so much more of a complicated mystery! "Blood Relations" stands well on its own. Author MacPherson does an excellent job of giving plenty of background on all the characters in the story for those who have not read the whole series, like me. I plan to go back and read the other stories in this series that I have missed.

If you enjoy some history mixed in with your cozy mysteries, I highly recommend "Blood Relations" and the other books in this series.

Torie O'Shea is a local historian and genealogist in New Kassel, Missouri. There's been a drought and as the depth of the Mississippi River lowers, a steamboat wreck, believed to be The Phantom which wrecked in 1919, has emerged.

There are many rumors, but the most prominent one seems to be that there was a cache of diamonds on board when it wrecked that have never been recovered. Soon treasure seekers from all over arrive in town. The sheriff, her step-father, has his hands full trying to keep people away from The Phantom.

After someone is killed, Torie and her friend, a reporter, dig for the truth. At the same time, Torie is trying to deal with the news of a half-sister she never knew she had. The wreck gives her a diversion, but her personal turmoil must be dealt with as well.

Can she find out the truth about the wreck and the diamonds as well as come to grips with the existence of her half-sister? What kind of relationship is she willing to have with her new half-sister?

I really enjoy this series. Torie is such a wonderful character and New Kassel is a great small town setting for this terrific cozy series. The townspeople are great, but yet they are very realistic. I feel as if I have been a visitor in their town by the time I finish a book in this series.

The steamboat wreck and the turmoil over finding about her new half-sister work well together. The author has done a great job of interspersing them but yet keeping them separate. I really enjoyed this book and love the series. I highly recommend this book!

This is a fun who dun it starring Torie O'Shea, a historian in a small town. when the river gets to very low levels, the remains of a sunken steamship become visible. This event brings notoriety to the town, and with the advent of reporters, Torie becomes interested in the legends of the ship- why it crashed- were there really diamonds on board- what happened to the heiresss, etc. The reader follows Torie through her research, and eventually to solving all the pertinent mysteries. Oh, and Torie finds out about a 1/2 sister that she never knew existed.
This is a quick, fun read. The heroine, Torie is a great, well developed character. She loves her family and her job. She has a wacky best friend. We learn just the right amount of information about her. The other characters are good as well. MacPherson doesn't introduce a million useless characters. Things are given on a need to know basis, which is great, because you don't get bogged down with useless trivia.
This is not a suspenseful edge of your seat mystery though. It is well thought out, and utilizes Torie's knowledge of history and research to come to a satisfying conclusion. The writing is funny and well paced, the narrative snappy, and the descriptions detailed, yet not overbearing.
This is a good, fun who dun it. Please read!
