In the spring of 1800, a traveling circus arrives in town. Rees is about to attend, but sees his nemesis, Magistrate Hanson in the crowd, and leaves. On the way home he meets a party of Shaker brothers searching for a missing girl. They quickly come across her lifeless body thrown into a farmer's field.
Rees begins investigating and quickly becomes entranced by the exotic circus performers, especially the beautiful young tightrope walker.
Other murders follow. Who is the killer? One of the circus performers? One of the townspeople? Or One of the Shakers?

Book Review by Crystal J. Casavant-OttoI enjoyed reading A Circle of Dead Girls by Eleanor Kuhns. Carrying around this particular title prompted questions and some sideways glances. Such a catchy title, but rest assured this is not a garish or gruesome book. The historical setting caught my attention immediately and I enjoyed the old fashioned mystery with such delightful characters. Being unfamiliar with the Shaker culture and not having experienced this particular time period first hand, I found the details very helpful in bringing me back in time and helping me feel comfortable with a foreign (to me) culture. I was delighted to learn this is the 8th book in a series - and though it’s absolutely fine as a stand alone read, I look forward to devouring each and every book in this series. Kuhns is a talented author and I enjoyed every page of this intriguing mystery!
