Publisher's Summary

Harbor Springs, an idyllic resort town in northern Michigan, has always drawn visitors. However, hundreds of years before it was known for sailboats, cottages, and fudge, it was known for its hunting, fishing, and tribal conflict.
Kylie Branson thought she was getting a quiet day at the Good Hart Beach with her boyfriend, Jason, and dog, Cupcake, until a fawn ventures down to the water for a drink. When Cupcake takes off after the fawn, Kylie and Jason chase her to the ravine of Devil's Elbow, where they discover what appears to be human remains. Intrigued by the DNA results and the types of bones left behind, Kylie delves into the history of the area and soon uncovers a secret that has been kept for hundreds of years, discovered, and then hidden again. Could the Native American sign at the bend warning of an evil spirit be more than a legend? Could there be a deeper meaning behind the local ghost stories, reported sounds of a drum, voices after dark, and even apparitions? Follow Kylie as she learns about the history behind the treacherous curve in the Tunnel of Trees known as Devil's Elbow.

Past meets Present

Both the author and narrator were new to me. I loved how this book had multiple stories woven into one. The tragic love story based on Indian myth, the poem as a basis for legend, and the current love story. The author and narrator are extremely talented. I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator, and/or publisher.

A wall is layed to old walls.

Devil's Elbow is almost two books spliced into one. Firstly there is a cozy mystery set in the present day, replete with cup cakes and light comedy. Then there is the real story, perhaps to be uncovered, one of the love between a young woman, Little Fawn, and the son of the chief of the Lease, an hunter and a warrior. It is this latter which really grips the reader, simply told but vibrant with emotion, as the distant past is alternated with present day, a device which works well. The mystery, too, is that for the current day protagonists in the story to uncover as much from the past has already been made clear to the reader.

Narrator Allyson Voller reads with a clear, mid tonal voice, her expression following the text. Although not usually overly differentiated, she makes it clear who is saying what at all times. But it is in her relating of the historical parts of the story where she really excels, her performance sensitive and beautiful, pitched perfectly for the characters, and she speaks unfamiliar names with consistent fluency. A fine performance.

Based at least partially on oral history and local legend, the author, Kristie Dickinson, has clearly researched extensively to provide the powerful feeling of it's being true. And, in a brief note afterwards, she mentions that, if Googled, the Devil's Elbow is supposedly the most haunted place in Michigan.

Devil's Elbow is not the book I had thought it would be when I requested it from the rights holder, via Audiobook Boom, and was freely gifted a complimentary copy. It is an unusual book and one I very much enjoyed. I think it would also appeal not only to fans of cozy and paranormal stories but also to all with an interest in Native American life before their world was disrupted.
