    I thoroughly enjoyed this paranormal thriller. Haunted furniture

    I thoroughly enjoyed this paranormal thriller. Haunted furniture, a creepy villain, a hero under a spell and a heroine worthy of the best of those cool and spine chilling movies of the 1970s like Crowhaven Farm and Harvest Home.

    "The Artist's Inheritance" had a wonderfully creepy un

    "The Artist's Inheritance" had a wonderfully creepy undertone to it, sort of like the movie "Rosemary's Baby." Caitlin's husband Trevor, an artist, is increasingly absorbed with his latest work...a rather devilish chair. Caitlin discovers she's sensitive to the supernatural, and goes on a quest to unravel the mystery behind what is possessing Trevor, before it's too late. The story has ghosts and demons, plus witches who are on the side of good. I liked the way Caitlin wouldn't give up on her husband, no matter what. The novel is the beginning of a series, and I'll be looking for the sequels. A very well done debut novel for Revezzo.

    A delightfully haunting tale!

    The Artist's Inheritance centers on Caitlin and Trevor as they relocate to Florida after the untimely death of Trevor's brother. As we watch them settle into the new-to-them house and begin the process of cleaning up the bits of his brother's life, we realize soon that things are not okay. Cait is a strong woman deeply in love with and committed to her husband, which is why, when things start getting strange, she sticks by him rather than running away with her hands in the air. Here is a woman who is going to stand by her man, especially when he needs her the most.

    Cait begins to learn things, about Trevor's family, about their haunted past, about *her* haunted past, about the world around her, that she could have never suspected. Her whole drive, throughout the book, is to keep her family together. Can she do it, when forces she doesn't understand threatens to drive them apart?

    I absolutely _love_ this book. I've been following Juli's work for quite some time now, and I am so thrilled that she's released this book directly. Her writing is well executed, and the strength of the story is uplifting. There are moments in the book when, were I Caitlin, I would have left Trevor high and dry, and never mind if he went mad or not. There were moments when his behavior had me wanting to strangle him -- yet Cait's reaction were always true to her character. Juli's ability to write such believable characters is inspiring to behold. I mean it as the highest praise when I say, "I wanted to throttle him, but the way he acted made sense, given what was going on." her command of setting is as solid as her command of character. All in all, this book was a joy to read, and I highly recommend it.
