Why I chose this book:

A glimpse into the mind of a person suffering from post–traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) written by someone with personal experience. A good study in a well–crafted mystery. First in a series of 3.

When an arsonist destroys her Cincinnati home, Kit Blume loses everything. All that remain are her annoying neighbor, a cryptic letter from her father, and the disturbing flashbacks and nightmares about her childhood that involve a killer with a gun. Determined to reveal the truth about her life prior to adoption, Kit discovers that some memories should be left in the dark. She joins forces with residents of the economically blighted town of Moose Creek, Minnesota, to unearth the truth about her past and her link to a fire that destroyed an inn decades ago. The harder Kit presses to uncover the facts, the closer the killer moves to silence her and the people who want to help her.
