Overview

When Claire Mayfield suddenly finds herself the new heir of a property that has lain vacant for over one hundred years, she becomes leery of the rumors of the hauntings from the three young children who were said to have been murdered there. With a little encouragement from Ben, the lawyer who breaks the news of the inheritance to her, Claire agrees to explore the manor, but only on the condition that Ben accompanies her. Finding her attractive, he accepts the challenge, and the two embark on an adventure that will forever change their lives.

Despite a few distractions and bumps along the way, Claire discovers her great uncle, Dr. Blackwell's, apothecary and traveling medicine show from the late 1800's, and even stumbles upon clues that could help her solve her ancestor's one hundred-year-old murder-mystery—all with a little help from a mischievous young girl who has been dead for over one hundred years.

Written with the paranormal fiction fan in mind, this book offers a peek into the world of a ghost, and ignites the imagination, allowing the reader to experience paranormal communication within its pages. Because the young ghost’s feelings, emotions and worries are conveyed in a very real light, the reader will be drawn to her story, crying when she cries and smiling when she triumphs.

    Good from start to finish

    I really enjoyed the "love at first sight" story. And the ghost parts are chilling.
    Highly recommended

    A tidy family haunting

    A story of acceptance & responsibility. Well conceived and gentle with its ghostly aspects. Little Amelia is a heroine with major burdens to bear.

    Eh...

    It's an easy read, which is what I was looking for. I lost interest in it when she pulled in the lawyer, but I kept reading it since I had bought it. The story idea was good. However, the writing is pretty juvenile and felt rushed- like she was trying to fit in as much as possible without any depth. Overall, I won't be looking out for any more of her books.

    Worth it!

    This is a great (short) read and a perfect fit for anybody looking for a suspensful way to spend their weekend. I recomend it for teens to adults. Just because it seems short doesn't mean it's boring in ANY WAY! buy it!

    Save your .99

    This book was so unbelievable I actually stopped reading it. Then I figured I paid $ for it so I should finish. Again grossly unbelievable and I totally am into the paranormal genre. Way to neatly wrapped. Well if your not up for taking risks (story line) then go ahead and read this.
