When asked to research old documents for a local family, Meredith Morehouse, curator of the eclectic Imogene Museum, jumps at the chance. As if she didn’t already have enough to do — hiring a new gift shop manager; keeping tabs on Rupert Hagg, the eccentric museum director whose naivety regarding the wiles of a persistent gold-digging newcomer may prove problematic; not to mention finding time to see Pete Sills, the hunky tugboat captain she’s just started dating.
Then Meredith’s investigation unearths hints that a decade-old suicide might not have been suicide after all. So many secrets in the small, riverside town of Platts Landing, Washington. Will someone kill again to hide the truth?
