Called: And so it is, and so it was
Author:James R. Mesich

***Have not read this one either but seems pretty interesting

Overview
A down-to-earth landscape artist from Detroit, Patrick Slavich returns to the family home in the northern Michigan town of Ironwood, where his greatgrandfather settled many years ago. After divorcing his wife, Patrick looks forward to his return to his family's home, because it's where he will be able to relax and enjoy the unspoiled natural beauty of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. The millions of stars that glisten up against the black velvet, that coat the oh so silent night. The crispness in the air that is so rich, one could almost drink it like a cool refreshing glass of water after a long hot day in the heat of July.
One day, Patrick stops at an antique store to have his palm read, the man reading his palm seems to be getting a lot of facts about his life right. But how could he have known these things, will his predictions for the future come true? Soon, a sinister family secret reveals itself, altering his memories of the past and threatening his future. Jacob White, the palm reader, is a supernatural force from the "old country" who has preyed upon the Slavich family for centuries. Now, he returns to eliminate Patrick and everything that he holds dear.

Seems from the comments re this books has a little bit of everything, thrill, suspense, romance and comedy.
