Julia was in a search of a way out...a way back to herself.

The passing of her favorite aunt sends her to the small artist town of Grand Marais, nestled along the northern coast of Lake Superior. There she starts to weave the tattered threads of a new life, rediscovering her love of sketching, while running the antique shop, Past Imperfect. Everything is finally going right. Until a mysterious package arrives, tucked inside is an ornate silver letter opener bearing the initials E.C. along with an even more mysterious note. Julia's natural curiosity piqued, but before she can discover who sent the letter opener, it's found embedded in Tom Peterson's chest.

The tapestry of her new life begins to unravel as she is named a prime suspect. Now, left with few clues and a past not willing to let her go, Julia works to solve the mystery and the murder.

Infidelity through time and a curse that only she can break - once she figures out how. 

"Interesting characters, cool setting.
This cozy mystery-style story is populated with interesting characters in a very cool setting. Nice small town feel that makes Lake Superior almost another character in the story. [...]
 The flow is good and the author has a nice touch with knowing when to inject an unexpected twist. Strong showing for a first-time author. 
And I hope the author maintains the slight supernatural element. That was quite an interesting byline without it dominating the story. Very well done." - by Mark C, Amazon
