Book 2 in the Living History Museum Mysteries 
by Amanda Flower

March on Barton Farm can only mean one thing: maple sugar season. To combat the winter slump, resilient director Kelsey Cambridge organizes a Maple Sugar Festival, complete with school visits, pancake breakfasts, and tree tapping classes. Kelsey hires curmudgeonly maple sugar expert Dr. Conrad Beeson to teach the classes, despite misgivings over his unpleasant demeanor. It's a decision she ends up regretting when, before the first tree can be tapped for sap, Dr. Beeson turns up dead.
The maple sugar expert's death threatens to shut down not only the Maple Sugar Festival, but also Barton Farm itself. Kelsey must solve Dr. Beeson's murder to escape the increasingly sticky situation.


An entertaining, informative mystery that I couldn’t put down.  

Author Amanda Flower pens several different series that cover all different subjects. The Living History Museum Mysteries is set in modern times, but focuses on the Civil War era. I admire the research this author must certainly do to ensure her stories contain accurate information.

I really enjoyed THE FINAL TAP. Spending time with series lead, Kelsey Cambridge was a wonderful learning experience to be sure, but it was also a marvelous whodunit that was unpredictable, and contained surprises that threw even more intrigue into the story. This all led to an action packed reveal that had me holding my breath whole way through.

Author Flower’s writing continues to grow more amazing with every book she writes. If you haven’t read one of her books, you’re missing out on incredible storytelling.
