This is primarily a mystery with a hint of "ghost" thrown in for good measure. When a fireplace is dismantled at a college library, Grace Marsden has the misfortune to be there when bones and rosary beads come tumbling out. Who could these bones belong to? Could it be the college's mysterious Rosary Bride? For years, students have reported "seeing" a mysterious figure dressed in white and carrying a rosary roaming the halls of Regina College.
Grace throws herself into unraveling the mystery--along with the help of a former boyfriend who happens to be the chief of police. Her efforts are not met with enthusiasm by either this former boyfriend or Grace's present husband. As Grace investigates possible candidates for the mysterious fireplace bones, she soon becomes a target herself. It seems someone is upset that the bones have been discovered and even more so that Grace is looking into who they belong to.
This mystery had more chasing and close calls than I typically like. I generally prefer more thinking and detecting rather than running and evading. Even so, I was kept guessing as to the identity of the killer until the end and the characters are engaging. A great read!
