Secrets lurk in a small New York town and betrayal is just around the corner. The morning after the worst blizzard of 1934, Detective Steven Blackwell takes on a highly charged murder case. The investigation starts badly: one clue, lots of lies and alibis. To make things worse, he's seeing visions of a strange woman in his house.

One night the mysterious woman speaks. Her name is Olivia and she lives in 2014. She believes time has folded over in the house they share. As their relationship deepens, Steven's investigation intensifies. Soon, he can no longer trust anyone in his own time. Can Olivia help him crack the case-and catch a killer?

Doorway to Murder is the first in The Blackwell and Watson Time-Travel Mystery series by Carol Pouliot.

"There's nothing I like more than a time-travel tale, but how much better to get a crisp, fair-play police procedural, too. The atmosphere grabbed me. The ending surprised me. I'm already looking forward to Steven and Olivia's next adventure."
- Catriona McPherson, multi-award-winning author of the Edgar-shortlisted The Day She Died

"Steven and Olivia make a great couple of crime busters in this era-jumping romance and hard-boiled police procedural. Join them. You'll be glad you did!"
