But Cassie Lane doesn’t see this as a gift. For her, it is a curse because the book magic comes with a price--the Lane women die young and the men are lost to the sea. As soon as she’s able, she leaves Laurel Point, Oregon, running from her past and her fate, ending up on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. There she meets Leo Hawthorne and lives a perfect life with him in an old Sea Captain’s house.

Twenty years later, Cassie and Leo's children, twins Pippin and Grey, are back in Devil's Cove. Long forgotten secrets surface and an old crime comes to light. Now Pippin must learn how to be a bibliomancer if she is to discover the truth about her father and continue his effort to stop the curse.

Life Without Shoes: The First Father Ambrose Mystery

In the great tradition of Grantchester, the Rabbi Small mysteries, and the Cadfael Chronicles, Life Without Shoes confronts a modern-day monastic with a horrifying crime. It’s late summer and Father Ambrose is looking forward to an abundant and joyful harvest at New Life Ecumenical Retreat. That dream is shattered when someone dumps a body in one of their orchards. As Abbot, Ambrose is forced into the role of protector of New Life and, eventually, private investigator, working alongside Sheriff Charlie Cormley to identify and bring the perpetrator to justice. He has no fondness for the world beyond the gates, but now he must put all that aside and do what’s best for his community. Through meditation and his commitment to compassionate service, Father Ambrose finds himself engaged with the outside world in ways he couldn’t have predicted, and in the process, must prove the innocence of the New Life community or see it crumble around him.
