What neither Diana nor Sam—formerly an angel, now a cat—could have anticipated was that her first Summons as an active Keeper would be to a shopping mall! But neither the Keepers nor their cats were prepared for what they found when they tried to cross from their world to the Otherside mall….

The Second Summoning. She knew she should change his memories and force him to leave her.
Any other course was bound to lead to disaster. But as it turned out, it was already too late, for without Dean around Claire could easily become a danger to herself and the very fabric of space and time. Summon the Keeper. Austin was a black and white, far-from-young cat. After all, who knew better than Austin what was best for the well-being of Claire—and for the not-quite-as-important rest of the universe?
Claire Hansen was a Keeper, a member of that select group that kept the universe in one piece. And Claire was not happy about this latest assignment, not happy at all.
Bears of the Ice #3: Keepers of the Keys
Share: Share on Facebook. Other Series By Tanya Huff. About Tanya Huff. One is a former emergency room nurse, the other a longtime elementary school teacher. They make notes on coffee filters instead of index cards and wear clam diggers and sensible sneakers. But thanks in part to the amateur sleuth work of Gemma Hoskins and Abbie Schaub, the year-old unsolved murder of a young Catholic nun is gaining national attention. But the nun disappeared suddenly on Nov. She never returned home, and her car was found directly across the street from where she lived, parked haphazardly, the rear jutting out into the road.
The tires were caked with mud, and a twig hung from the steering wheel. Hoskins, wanting to help reporter Tom Nugent figure out who had hurt Cesnik, posted a message to a Facebook page for Keough High alumni, but was berated for muddying up a space usually filled with birth and anniversary announcements with such an unpleasant topic.
The two made a good team: Schaub, the retired nurse, had a knack for research. Through Google, she learned how to access public records, digging up old court documents, sifting through microfilm and even filing Freedom of Information Act requests. She kept all of her findings in organized spreadsheets and file folders, some days working for up to 10 hours on the investigation. Hoskins, meanwhile, preferred to do the face-to-face work.

I am keen to find substantive, hard facts. I want to see a paper trail. So her strengths are my weaknesses. Often he and Hoskins would butt heads. She jokes that she told White she was quitting the project about a dozen times.

I was raised with values by my mom in that church. Schaub feels the same way. And talking to scores of sexual abuse victims has taken a toll. The case was thrown out because the statute of limitations had expired.
At school, Hoskins had never had much interaction with Maskell. She thought he was just a nerdy priest. You know how nerdy he looks in that? It was when she learned that the Maskell allegations might be tied to Cesnik that Hoskins took a greater interest in the case. They were old and serious, the white headdresses framing their faces so tightly it looked painful.
But Cesnik was different. She was in her 20s, pretty and charismatic. It was the last time Hoskins would see the woman who inspired her to become an elementary school teacher. When she found out about the murder, she felt sick.

The tree is located on private land, hidden about 50 yards off the street in some woods thick with underbrush. He was a eucharistic minister, assisting the priest in giving out communion. His youth group traveled to Honduras every couple of years on mission trips.
So making a story set in Baltimore, a city with deep ties to the religion, piqued his interest.
Since filming on the documentary was finished, Hoskins, after 64 years of living in Baltimore county — and seeing Schaub several times a week — decided to move permanently to Ocean City.
