The story is about Catori, everyone calls her Cat. One day while away at college she gets a call from her father. The absolute worse has happened her mother has suddenly passed away. Cat returns to Rowan. Rowan is a small town that was founded 2 centuries ago by the Gottwa Indians and are Cat's ancestors.
When Cat arrives home she finds the medical examiner on her porch. This may sound strange to some but Cat's home is in the middle of the cemetery and is used to store the bodies until the funerals.
Cat does not believe that her mother passed away from a heart attack and begins searching for answers. Things go from sad to weird very quickly.
I am giving this book a 4 star rating because of the ending. A book should never been ended mid story. It like cutting it off mid chapter. I would never end anything where this book ended. It just stopped at a very important part and one of the most suspenseful parts of the book. It kind of ruined the whole book for me I am very sorry to say. I was very in to the book and then it just stopped. I do not read a lot of series that can not be read as stand alones, but even the ones I have read at least ended one story and hinted to the next.
