Perhaps you came here to find the story of the woman your grandmother did not have an opportunity to become, or to finish the story of the one who interrupted her life so suddenly.” These intriguing words send Addie McRae on a quest to uncover the truth behind a decades-old unsolved murder and find a killer who is still living, and killing, in Sparrow Falls, North Carolina. She is befriended by spunky southern lady Tilda MacArdan and the mysterious and angelic Morwenna Goss, known as the “story keeper” of the old Scottish cemetery. A list of suspects grows as Addie meets the eccentric townsfolk, most of them descendants of Highland Scots who settled the town centuries before. Does a gossiping trio of elderly women remember the first murder accurately, or are they merely keeping ugly rumors alive? An artist who painted the portrait of the beautiful murder victim may have loved her – or killed her. The handsome editor of the town’s struggling newspaper, whose grandfather was the prime suspect, could be Addie’s new beau, or her most dangerous foe. New suspects appear as the amateur detective unravels the cold case, and Addie learns that even in a quiet town things – and people – are never quite as they appear.
