Emma Chase moves to a quaint Cottage she inherited outside St. Michaels, Maryland. Her plan is to rest and recover from the horrendous car accident that almost took her life. When the movers find an antique plantation desk hidden in the garage, she has it moved into the Cottage. The next morning, a mysterious letter appears dated 1862 and signed by a stranger named Daniel, who declares his love for Emma. Does she believe in ghosts? Should she respond? Then, the police arrive to investigate a murder committed across the creek from her Cottage. Is there a connection? Does Daniel hold the secret that can save her from a murderer? Letters in Time is the first book in a new series of historical fiction mysteries set in St. Michaels, Maryland Eastern Shore, named in 1,000 Places to See Before You Die by Patricia Schultz.
