An island's history holds clues to a modern murder

Solitude at last! Museum curator Chloe Ellefson jumps at the chance to spend time on Wisconsin's Rock Island, a state park with no electricity or roads. Hired as a consultant for a project to restore the island's historic 1857 lighthouse, her research turns up fascinating tough-as-nails women from the past.

Chloe's tranquility is spoiled when a dead woman washes ashore. Is it an accidental drowning? Or has tension over tighter fishing regulations reached a dangerous boiling point? When a second body is found, Chloe finds herself trapped on remote Rock Island with a killer.

This book contains a map of Rock Island, a cast of characters, and an author's note with links to additional resources.

Robert Papp says he's one lucky guy. "Every day I wake up and get to play with paint!" Ever since his first gallery showing on his family's refrigerator, he has been creating appetizing artwork. Nowadays his paintings appear in the pages of children's books instead, which he finds perfect since kids are the best audience an artist can ever have. Robert lives with his artist wife, Lisa, and their orange cat in historic Bucks County Pennsylvania, and if you ever visit, you might still find a painting or two stuck to the refrigerator.
