"A mystery that keeps you guessing, together with the story of a woman slowly finding her voice" --Kirkus Reviews

With a murderer behind bars, Emily Kincaid is finally settling into what she hopes will be a peaceful new home in the remote woods of northern Michigan and a burgeoning career as a mystery writer. Until foul-weather friend Deputy Dolly Wakowski shows up on her doorstep with frantic tales of a dead body and demands her help. The receding waters of a local lake have revealed a bullet-pierced skull and a keepsake, and both could belong to a man Dolly once loved--and lost.

As Emily reluctantly agrees to help, another set of bones surface--this time of an Odawa Indian girl. It's not long before Emily finds herself wading through Dolly's painful past and digging into the town's dark history, all the while dodging threats from an outraged Odawa leader who may be protecting more than just sacred burial rites.

When the connection between the two victims points to an ugly truth that threatens to unravel Dolly's world, Emily vows to sort through the clues and find a killer, even if it breaks Dolly's heart--or costs them both their lives.

Emily Kincaid is a mystery writer ... ar at least, she would like to be. She's settled into a small town in Northern Michigan and loves it there. It's peaceful, it's beautiful, and it's away from her ex-husband. That all changes when her friend, Deputy Dolly Wakowski is sent to investigate the finding of some bones ... which turn out to be the bones of her husband who disappeared with an Indian girlfriend 13 years earlier. And then more bones are found .. presumably the girlfriend. The Indians are demanding that the body of the girl be returned to them post haste so she can continue her journey to heaven. But who would have killed these 2 people ... other than Dolly? This one is billed as a cozy mystery, but I feel it's actually a step above. What impressed me the most are the quirky characters. They are so much fun. There is Deputy Dolly herself ... full of insecurity who has been hurt so much in the past, but won't let anyone see the pain. She and Emily are true friends ... the kind of friend you never have to lie to or hide from. They can bicker and poke at each other without hurting their relationship. Then there is the librarian. She's got such a good heart. She'll do anything for anyone. She's first in line to organize a find raiser, take food to a needy family,/ But she won't let you borrow any of the library's books unless she thinks you will appreciate it. Henry is an older gentleman, Emily's closest neighbor. He's a mushroom hunter, finding morels and selling them. He's taught Emily a lot about the hunting, about her gardening. His little quirk -- he's always wearing a black suit. As he says --- just in case he drops dead, he'll already be dressed for it. The mystery was a good one... not something I could foresee, which makes any mystery book much better in my eye. I loved that the American Indians played a part ... and the location is somewhere I could see myself living. The book did not send my heart into overdrive. It's a smooth journey from start to end and it did hold my attention all the way. Many thanks to the author / Beyond the Page Publishing / Netgalley for the digital copy of this book.
