    I looked on her Facebook page and it appears that there is a book in the works but not about Torrie. Sounds like she is starting a new series but no mention of what happened to the Torrie books. THanks for mentioning her books. I love genealogy mystery books.

    Thanks for that reading list. What a great way to spend a long, lazy weekend!

    I loved the Torie O’Shea series also and was bummed when it stopped. I seem to remember reading that Rett Macpherson got married around the time the last book came out.

    It does look like she has been busy. Jan 2012 she had finished an historical novel and was going to start looking for a publisher. An occasional few comments before and after, here and there, about publishing difficulties (It may have been that her Torie series publisher fizzled on her, or that she got tired of the series.) And just the beginning of this month, she said she was looking at the possibility of self-publishing via ebook, and would anyone be interested in actually buying them. Got a long string of positive comments. Said she had a concept that Torrie fans would love, although it would not be a Torrie book. Don’t give up hope 😉

    I absolutely love this series and really miss the books. Rett MacPherson seems to be very active on FB but no hint of any more Torie O’Shea mysteries. For those of you who love genealogy-related mysteries, please see my blog post from earlier this year at

    A Veiled Antiquity came out in October. I have it on Kindle.

    Oh, I see that was an earlier book. I wonder why they re-issued it? Sorry to be confusing ;/

    No, I haven’t read her books but I enjoy that genre. I have read and enjoyed Steve Robinson’s books. I will start reading hers too!

    Another interesting genealogy read is “The Marriage Certificate” by Stephen Molyneux

    I checked her Facebook page tonight. She is actively posting and still writing. She posted that in December the Torie series would be available on your Kindle. Normally a Facebook page (especially for an author) is public. Ergo, you do not need to have a FB account to view the page.
