Publisher's Summary

Mimi Shapiro needs to get away. From New York City, from NYU. And from the professor who let things go too far. So when her artist father, Marc, offers his cottage in a remote part of Canada, she gladly hops in her Mini Cooper and drives up north. Way up north.

The little house is fairy-tale quaint, and the key is hidden right where her dad said it would be, so she's shocked to find someone already living there  -  Jay, a young musician, who is equally startled to meet Mimi and immediately accuses her of being the one who's been leaving strange and threatening tokens for him: a dead bird, a snake skin, a cricket soundtrack imbedded in his latest composition. But Mimi has just arrived, so who is responsible? And more alarmingly, what does the intruder want?

    Story
    "Not what I expected...but good nonetheless."

    I bought this book on a whim. I was completely unfamiliar with the author. I wanted something different and unknown to me. I was familiar with the narrator and I did a search under her name since she is one of my favorites. I was drawn to this book because of the cover and the title. It sounded interesting so I downloaded it.

    The prologue is a little confusing. In fact, I had to go back after I finished the book and listened to it again, and while it made more sense, it still seemed a little pointless.

    Once you get past the prologue though, this book really takes on a nice personality. The characters are wonderful. The narration is excellent, and there is a nice little unexpected twist in the middle and another at the end.

    This is not a paranormal book (though the title made me think that at first) nor is it romance. There is plenty of plot though. I recommend the read.
