Box set of bestselling James Women Trilogy novels.
Therapy for Ghosts (Book 1)
Some memories will find you no matter where you hide…
Cindy James is a cognitive behavioral therapist in a quiet Missouri town, but her precisely patterned life spins into chaos when she is besieged by panic attacks. Forced to undergo counseling with a new, peculiar therapist in town, Tony Prost, Cindy defiantly resists both his unnerving charm and the truth behind the haunting images that are unleashing her anxiety.
As Cindy’s memory flashes increase in frequency, she is jolted by the terrible deed her beloved mother committed to gain their freedom from her father. That memory is one clue to the mystery behind her compulsive behaviors: carrying a headless Raggedy Ann doll throughout the five-story mansion in which she lives alone, spot cleaning the mansion’s thirty-one rooms, and crying herself to sleep in an empty red room. Cindy slowly recalls her grandmother’s dominating, divisive presence and a violent history shrouded by years of silence, binding three generations. She soon realizes that the key to her future is buried in her past, but finding the truth means embarking on a harrowing journey back into the heart of her darkest fears.
Sleepwalking into Darkness (Book 2)
Sometimes to change the future, you have to unearth the past…
Nineteen years have passed since Cindy James endured therapy and reconciled the demons of her childhood, but a new secret threatens to plunge her deeper into the twisted world of the James women. Desperate for answers, Cindy travels across the country with her husband, Tony, and her daughter, Lexi, and uncovers the real story of her mother and grandmother, a legacy 100 years in the making. When an unexpected stranger becomes hell-bent on putting a stop to her discoveries, Cindy must choose either to pursue the truth–even if it destroys her and her family—or to end her search in order to save the ones she loves. Sleepwalking into Darkness, the sequel to Therapy for Ghosts, explores the darker side of family secrets and how those secrets can either shape or shatter the lives of those closest to us.
