Editorial Reviews

Ohioana Quarterly
A real page-turner of a story--descriptive detail brings the reader on the scene--characters come to life through Carl's ear for everyday dialog. Especially spell-binding is the realistic description of the ghostly presence. The reader is drawn into the mystery as well as the love story that unfolds.
Rave Reviews
Gothic fans will be overjoyed--all the trappings of that subgenre are present, but the setting is decidedly modern.
Heartland Critiques
here are ghoulies and ghosties (honest) and long leggety beasties (a wonderful cat) and a myriad of things that go bump in the night--a host of suspects to sift through--not your common romance, but then, who said romance had to be common?
Fosfax
A Gothic novel with a twist--this is a fantastic story in more ways than one--a novel of gradually intensifying tension, as the incidents go from the odd, the mildly frightening, to the very dangerous--a very fine book.

She's cataloging a collection of historical artifacts, among them, supposedly, a scandalous letter written by Mary, Queen of Scots. But her co-worker, Scottish historian Michael Campbell, has his own plans. And the ghosts of the past, not to mention a very contemporary antagonist, want them both gone.

    Side note, I'm no longer part of BloodClan. That ended last night when Thistlefang and I fought.
