WRAPPED AROUND A MURDER MYSTERY

Synopsis: Nick Bremmer’s life is like that of any teenager – almost. He’s playful, happy-go-lucky, just crazy about the outdoors, and more than a little up for adventure. He also has a grandfather who’s been accused of murder. Nick’s grandfather went missing years ago, leaving pain and uncertainty in his wake. When an estranged uncle returns home and offers to take Nick on a wilderness canoe trip, Nick sets out, determined not only to bond with his newfound role model, but also to learn the reality behind his grandfather’s disappearance. In a place where nature is stingy with its secrets, will Nick uncover the healing truth of his family’s past? Where Water Collides With Stone is a coming-of-age murder mystery told over three generations. Set in Minnesota’s Boundary Waters Canoe Area, Maine’s Lake Country, Boston Children’s Hospital, and the Canadian Barren Lands, this story of love, loss, loyalty, and surrogate grandfathers takes readers into the heart of nature to find the heart of a family.
