Overview

A beautiful Civil War era bed and breakfast called Willowwind is cherished and run by a loving couple, Adrian and Caroline Stone. But it’s also haunted by a long-dead Civil War era ghostly vampiress called Lilith who believes the man, Adrian, is her reincarnated soldier/lover and she will do anything to have him, body-heart-and soul, for her own again, no matter how many she must kill. Yet Adrian’s wife, Caroline, along with the spirit of her dead father, will do anything to make sure that doesn’t happen. For true love is far stronger than any evil obsession.

About Kathryn Meyer Griffith... Since childhood I’ve been an artist and worked as a graphic designer in the corporate world and for newspapers for twenty-three years before I quit to write full time. But I’d already begun writing novels at 21, over forty-two years ago now, and have had twenty-two (eleven romantic horror, two horror novels, three romantic SF horror, one romantic suspense, one romantic time travel, one historical romance and three murder mysteries) previous novels, two novellas and twelve short stories published from Zebra Books, Leisure Books, Avalon Books, The Wild Rose Press, Damnation Books/Eternal Press; and I’ve self-published my last five novels. My dinosaur novels and my Spookie Town Murder Mysteries are my best-sellers. I’ve been married to Russell for thirty-six years; have a son, James, and two grandchildren, Joshua and Caitlyn, and I live in a small quaint town in Illinois, which is right across the JB Bridge from St. Louis, Mo. We have a quirky cat, Sasha, and the three of us live happily in an old house in the heart of town. Though I’ve been an artist, and a folk singer in my youth with my brother Jim, writing has always been my greatest passion, my butterfly stage, and I’ll probably write stories until the day I die…or until my memory goes. 2012 EPIC EBOOK AWARDS *FINALIST* for my horror novel The Last Vampire-Revised Author’s Edition ~ 2014 EPIC EBOOK AWARDS *FINALIST* for her thriller novel Dinosaur Lake *All my Audible.com audio books here: http://www.audible.com/search/ref=a_mn_at_ano_tseft__galileo?advsearchKeywords=Kathryn+Meyer+Griffith&x=17&y=16 Novels and short stories from Kathryn Meyer Griffith: Evil Stalks the Night, The Heart of the Rose, Blood Forge, Vampire Blood, The Last Vampire, Witches, The Nameless One short story, The Calling, All Things Slip Away, Egyptian Heart, Winter’s Journey, The Ice Bridge, Don’t Look Back, Agnes, Before the End: A Time of Demons, The Woman in Crimson, Human No Longer, Four Spooky Short Stories Collection, Scraps of Paper, Dinosaur Lake, Dinosaur Lake II: Dinosaurs Arising and Dinosaur Lake: Infestation.

Adrian and Caroline Cole are living their dream. They bought the Civil War era house, Willowind, and turned it into a cozy bed and breakfast. Things couldn’t be better. Unitl…Something stars attacking the guests. Something from the old cemetary that abuts the grounds. The woman in crimson, Lilith, a vampire who believes Adrian is her long lost lover. What was a dream come true tourns into a nightmare as guests start dying. Forced to close the inn, Caroline has to believe Adrian. Has to be Lilith is real. And they have to join forces with a neighbor and a medium to rid them selves of her deadly presence, or lose everything, including their lives. Having read many of Kathryn’s books, I knew I’d be in for a terrific read. The atmosphere starts out light and steadily grows darker. People start to die. Lilith grows hungrier, angrier. I couldn’t help but feel bad for Adrian and Caroline. They’re living their dream. It all goes south. And a vampire,ghost will not sto until she gets what she wants. In the beginning, I kind of felt sorry for Lilith. She had a sad story. But when she’s awakened again, she’s no longer human, and loses that side of herself. Growing darker and more malevolent. When she started killing off people to feed, I lost all sympathy. I really liked some of her victims. I also felt sorry for Adrian. Once he came under attack from Lilith, he tried hard to convince his wife that she was real. But Caroline is a see it to believe it kind of gal and it took some horrific events to turn her around. Throw in the grumpy farmer trying to shake loose from his mother’s apron strings, and a renowned medium that looks like a bag lady, and this story takes hold of you. As usual, the author spares no character. You never know who will make it to the end. And she adds little twists to keep your emotions shifting about those characters. She also gives you a truly nasty villain. One you feel torn about. That is, until she goes off the deep end and does some very nasty deeds. In the end, I wanted Lilith dead, for good this time. When I was a teenager, I used to spend my summer vacations exploring abandoned house with my best friend and her father. I never ran into any ghost, but some of those houses had a disturbing vibe to them. Who knows what might have been lurking, watching. I felt that chill when reading this book. Looking for a scary good haunted house story. Grab a copy of this book. You’ll get everything you’re looking for and then some. I’d love to know what you think of the ending.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The element of suspense was present in every sentence. The relationship between the main character and his wife was well written. I believe the author wanted to make the reader not only understand that the couple had a close relationship, but to have the reader experience that relationship. I absolutely love paranormal romance and this book definitely did a fine job of spooking me. After finishing this book, I actually had a hard time turning my back on a dark room. It was terrifically thrilling to experience! Mrs. Griffith can most certainly pull off scary. She described the people and places so clearly that are transported there. The plot was good and solid and I found myself thinking several times throughout the book that a situation such as this one did not seem farfetched at all. Mrs. Griffith did an excellent job of blending all of the elements in her book into a tight and solid story. I gave this book a 4.5 book rating because there were a few places where I felt that conversation between the characters might have been misplaced or even unnecessary. It seemed strained or flat depending on what part of the story I was reading. Overall, though this book was fantastic and I would suggest that anyone with an interest in the paranormal give this book a read. You won't be sorry.
