After years spent mourning the death of her partner, Christine Kane, Minneapolis restaurateur Jane Lawless thinks she's ready to move on. That is, until she finds a gun among Christine's belongings. The night before Christine died of cancer, three members of the Simoneau family, Christine's real estate clients, were murdered. The timing of their deaths appeared coincidental and Jane always assumed Christine knew nothing of the family's secrets. But as she searches for clues to understand what really happened all those many years ago, the gun and a few other discoveries begin to convince Jane otherwise. Where past and present collide, Ellen Hart's latest mystery in this Lambda and Minnesota Book Award--winning series proves that she remains one of the genre's best.

Good solid murder mystery with a chance to get to know some of Jane Lawless’s back story. Woven into the mystery are flashbacks to her lover Christine who died ten years ago. Jane finally gets around to sorting through Christine’s possessions and discovers clues to a grievous murder that happened around her last days. Jane needs to close the book on Christine to find her way to Kenzie. Also sprinkled in are clues to her future job as a PI. I continue to love the Minneapolis settings and the cast of characters including over the top Cordelia. Looking forward to the next book in the series. I know I’m late to the party but really want to read them in order.
