Overview

Is ex-cop Ian Fanning destined to love Sharon or destroy her?

Young widow Sharon Mahoney moves with her seven-year-old son into a Victorian rooming house, where she's drawn to injured ex-policeman Ian Fanning. Then she discovers that Ian, a gifted artist, is obsessed with painting the woman his grandfather murdered--who looks exactly like Sharon.

Eerie events build as an old murder case seems to be playing out with ghostly twists involving the home's occupants. Does the vengeful spirit of Ian's grandfather have unfinished business? If so, it seems only Ian can save Sharon--unless he himself is becoming the threat.

Readers will be hooked by the strong female protagonist and the dark, surprising turns with a touch of the paranormal. This fast-paced noir thriller was written by USA Today bestselling novelist Jacqueline Diamond, author of the new Safe Harbor Medical mystery series.

A great story. Well-written...I couldn't wait to find out how it all played out. This was my first read of Jacqueline Diamond but it won't be my last.

Fantastic read! I have a weakness for mystery/thriller type romances and the paranormal just gives this story an extra je-ne-sais-quoi. Another good thing is that there really is a twist at the end! Generally I figure out who the bad guy (or girl) is a quarter or halfway through, however this time I truly was blindsided. I won't spoil it for you, but I strongly recommend you give Touch Me in the Dark a go.

Touch Me in the Dark has all the elements of a paranormal that we come to expect nowadays without being in the "norm". This book twists what we think of as paranormal into a new and fascinating direction.

I love Gothic romances, especially paranormal ones, and not many are published anymore. So I was delighted to discover Touch Me in the Dark and read it with great pleasure. A spooky old Victorian, interesting characters, and a twisty story. For a different take, this story was set in an unusual place--Southern California--not where you'd expect to find a Gothic ghost story. But it works! Touch Me in the Dark is definitely worth reading.

Excellent Ghost Story! Sharon Mahoney and her son Greg have moved back to California from New York after her husband/his father died unexpectedly from a heart attack and then Sharon is laid off from the school where she teaches. Her sister lands her a job at a school in California and even finds her a place to rent, so Sharon and Greg pack up their minivan and travel across the country to the start of a new life. The old house with the apartment for rent is old, creepy and even has a resident ghost, the man who was accused of killing the current owner’s sister. The sister, Jody, still lives there and her great-nephew, Ian Fanning, lives there, too. The last couple living there is a distant cousin and her husband. Strange things are said to happen in the house and Sharon and Greg see some really weird things themselves. Who is the ghost and what is he/she trying to tell the people living there? Will the anniversary of the murder, fast approaching, bring another death or will the cycle be broken? This was a great story. Well-written and smooth-flowing with well-fleshed characters and an interesting plot I couldn’t wait to find out how it all played out. This was my first read of Jacqueline Diamond, but it won’t be my last. *The author provided a copy of this book to me for review. Please see disclaimer page on my blog.
