From USA Today bestselling author Leslie Langtry comes a Civil War reenactment, a missing body, and one ex-CIA agent turned Girl Scout Troop leader with hilarious results!
Merry Wrath has a problem. Her Girl Scout Troop co-leader has signed them up to participate in a Civil War reenactment based on the little-known Battle of Idiot Creek. In full 19th century costume, Merry is just hoping she can keep her troop out of trouble. Unfortunately, things start to fall apart immediately—from the cannon the kids buy with her credit card, to one girl sneaking off at night to beat the other reenactors at poker, to avoiding a rumble between her troop and the haughty Magnolia Girls.
But things take a sharp turn for the worse when a real human leg appears in the pretend amputation tent…only to disappear while Merry's guarding it. The rest of the body doesn’t seem to exist, making Merry wonder if she’s losing her mind... or if there's a murderer among them. To complicate things, Merry's ex CIA handler, Riley, appears as a dashing cavalry officer investigating a real case, her married best friend is swooning over the Sam Elliot-like Provost, and during the battles, a tiny Union soldier appears to be running guerrilla ops that weren’t in the script.
With a group of soldiers threatening Merry, the Sheriff refuses to investigate, and the danger mounting, can Merry prove that there was a murder before the reenactment ends?

Merry is back with a new murder to solve...during a Civil War re-enactment! This series is so fun! I have to say that this one in particular really kept me guessing. I was completely surprised about who did it. I have read all the books in this series, and each one keeps me interested and entertained. I laugh out loud reading these. I highly recommend!
I've read every merry wrath book in order, to this present one. And I've loved all of them! Until this one. It just didn't flow, the content wasn't interesting with the reenactment, a lot was repeated...literal sentences repeated! And at the end, I still have no understanding of who did it and why. It was extremely confusing and not clear. I would have given it 1 star but didn't think that was fair since I love the other books in the series...this one was just...really bad.
Silly ridiculous plot, never want to read this author again.
