Clare Chamberlain is a nurse in the local ER. Her parents died when she was young, and she was raised by her Aunt Margaret, who is part French Canadian and part Native American, and psychic.
Remi Windspirit is a Sergeant with the Maine Marine Patrol and a former local hockey star. He is tall, handsome, and intrigued by Clare. He wants to get to know her better, but cannot let his personal life interfere with his work.
At the end of a sailing lesson, Clare and her best friend’s brother, Paul, come upon a corpse in the water near the boat’s mooring. The investigation includes the tall, dark and handsome Remi Windspirit. Their relationship could put Clare and her beloved Tante in danger.
This is a very well-written and engrossing mystery. The characters and the plot drew me in quickly, and I found myself unable to put it down. The characters are vividly drawn and though not typical to every small town, they fit into this quirky Maine community well. My favorites were Tante Margaret and Remi’s Scottish stepmother. Clare and Remi’s romance develops slowly but surely. The mystery develops in the same manner and this method works wonderfully well, leading us to the killer and a very satisfying ending to a good story.
