Overview

After losing her best friend in a fire, Rachel Madison rents a cabin on Misty Lake, trying to work through her guilt and sorrow.

Soon, she realizes that the peace she was trying to find here wasn’t to be, as supernatural events begin to take place.

The three friends move closer and closer to danger as the events unfold to a possible tragic result.

Excerpt:

Daniel was looking at her intently, and she nervously picked up her tea cup and took a sip of the hot liquid. Daniel smiled slightly and did the same.

“You seem a little ill at ease, Rachel. I’m not making you nervous, am I?”

“Of course not. Why should I be nervous?”

“Oh, I don’t know,” he said, putting down his cup and taking hers out of her hand and putting it down as well. “Maybe because you’re afraid I might kiss you?”
Her heart fluttered as he laid his palm against her face and drew her toward him. He lightly brushed his lips against hers, making her insides quiver with both anxiety and excitement. It had been a very long time since she had been in this kind of situation and she didn’t know exactly what she wanted to do. Daniel’s hands dropped to her waist and her hands twined around behind his neck as his kiss deepened and his warm lips parted. She felt his tongue seeking entrance and she opened herself to his exploration. Their embrace tightened as passion flared between them. But then, something strange happened. She suddenly felt as if she wasn’t quite herself. It was almost as if she was someone else and Daniel wasn’t really Daniel. It was disorienting and she pulled away from Daniel.

“What in the world just happened?” he asked in startled voice.

“What do you mean?” asked Rachel, wondering if he had felt the same odd sensation that she had.

“I don’t know. It was weird. One minute I was enjoying kissing the sexiest woman I’ve met in a long time; the next, I felt like someone was in there with me.”

“I don’t understand,” she said evasively.

“Hey, you felt it, too, didn’t you?” he accused.

“Felt what?”

“Come on, Rachel, I know you felt something strange happening. I can tell by the look on your face that you know what I’m talking about.”
“Well, I thought I felt something. But I figured I was imagining things.”

He stood up. “This is just getting too weird. First the talk about ghosts, now this feeling of…I don’t know…possession. I think I need to go home now. Maybe when I wake up in the morning, the world will be back to normal.”
