Overview

She's Been Watching . . . Waiting . . .

All her life, Linda Leigh has been a plain Jane--the kind of woman no one notices. That all changes when handsome college professor Geoffrey Manwaring falls in love with her. The only shadow cast over their upcoming marriage is Geoff's son Josh's stubborn refusal to accept Linda into his life--and his insistence that the unbalanced mother who deserted him years before will be return to claim him . . .

And When She Comes Home . . .

Gabrielle. Everyone remembers how intelligent, witty, and beautiful Geoff's first wife was. Still, Linda is confident she'll be a good stepmom to Josh, once he lets down his defenses. But then the nightmares start. Visions of being burned alive that soon become hallucinations. The same dreams plague Geoff, then Josh, who continues to await his mother's arrival . . .

. . . Blood Will Be Spilled

Until the day a woman in a red cloak comes up the lane and approaches the house. The wife who walked out on Geoff four years ago. The mother whose memory Josh clings to. The force of evil who wants Linda out of their lives--forever . . .

    Agree with Jim, Good Book, Bad Editor

    It did read like a rough draft and I don't know if jim encountered this but I noticed it skipped in one of it pages. Otherwise, I think it is worth reading it if you can get past the minor details.

    Good book, Bad Editor

    I read this book in one day, it is a great story. However, it read like a rough draft, and had numerous typographical errors. I hope Mr. Ross got his money back from his editor. Addtionally, there were factual errors that were glaring, including ones that effected the story if you weren't paying attention. This was my first Robert Ross read, and I will thumb through any future book of his before purchase to know if the rough draft feel is just his style of if he got his refund. I tried to email him with this info, but the email address in the back of the book is does not exist according to AOL.

    A chilling horror thriller

    For the first time in her life Linda Leigh is truly happy because she is in love with a handsome and sexy man who loves her beyond reason. The only problem is Geoffrey Manwaring¿s son who dislikes her intensely and is waiting for the mother who walked out on him four years ago to return. On the day that Geoff puts a ring on Linda¿s finger, she started dreaming about fire and when she is fully awake she sees people and buildings burning. Oddly enough, Geoff and Josh dream about fire as well............................... One day Geoff¿s wife Gabrielle suddenly shows up and wants to see Josh. Somehow mother and child are linked and Josh wants to see his mother. Geoff and Linda give in to his son¿s demands but the meeting doesn¿t go right and Josh turns away from his mother. Still she is determined to get custody of him and take him away from his father. Josh soon falls under her spell as does Geoff, leaving Linda to be the one to fight an age old evil that wants to destroy an eight year old boy............................ Robert Ross has written an exciting horror novel that rivals the works of Clive Barker and Dean Koontz. This modern day gothic horror novel starts off as a thriller but gradually the reader comes to understand that the antagonist is not quite human and it is up to the heroine to save the people she loves from an evil that is millennia old. CAUSE OF FEAR is a very spooky novel that is hard to put down because the reader wants to know how the characters fare.................. Harriet Klausner
