Past and Present Collide Beyond Death's Door 

Solitude at last! Museum curator Chloe Ellefson leaps at the opportunity to be a consultant for the historic lighthouse restoration project on Rock Island, a state park in Wisconsin's scenic Door County. Hoping to leave her personal and professional problems at home, Chloe's tranquility is suddenly spoiled when a dead woman washes ashore. Determined to find answers behind the mystery, Chloe dives into research about the island's history and discovers the amazing, resilient women who once lived there. But will the link between the past and present turn out to be a beacon of hope or a portent of doom? 

Praise:

Winner of the Lovey Award for Best Traditional/Amateur Sleuth Mystery

"Chloe's third combines a good mystery with some interesting historical information on a niche subject."-Kirkus Reviews

"Framed by the history of lighthouses and their keepers and the story of fishery disputes through time, the multiple plots move easily across the intertwined past and present."-Booklist

"A haunted island makes for fun escape reading. Ernst's third amateur sleuth cozy is just the ticket for lighthouse fans and genealogy buffs. Deftly flipping back and forth in time in alternating chapters, the author builds up two mystery cases and cleverly weaves them back together."-Library Journal

"Kathleen Ernst wraps history with mystery in a fresh and compelling read."-Jane Kirkpatrick, New York Times bestselling author
