I was lucky enough to receive an Advanced Reader's Copy of Winter Haven by Athol Dickson. I'll be happy to send it along with any order from my shelf. Please drop me a PM with your order if you would like this. Thanks!

From the back:

Thirteen years ago, Vera Gamble's brother, Siggy, left their home never to be seen again - until his body washes ashore on the tiny isolated town of Winter Haven, Maine. As his only surviving kin, Vera travels north to claim the body - and finds herself tangled in the impossible. Her brother hasn't aged a day since she last saw him.

Determined to uncover what happened in those lost years, Vera soon discovers there are other secrets haunting the island: tales of lost colonies, a witch bent on vengeance, and a forest where no creature dares to live. Hemmed in by an unearthly fog and distrusted by the locals, Vera's only ally is the owner of a grand but dilapidated mansion poised on a rocky cliff. Will her desperate questions find answers, or will Winter Haven claim yet one more dark legend?

The author's other books have received awards as some of the top Christian novels. This is a Gothic-esque mystery with a touching tribute to faith at the end.
