Nicole Martin needed a job, and she certainly wasn't daunted by the notion of working at Bliss House, an inn that has a reputation for being haunted. (And not your average distant footsteps in the hall, and orbs in photographs haunted, either.) When the inn's owners ask her to stay overnight while they travel to Richmond, halfway across Virginia, she jumps at the chance. She imagines an epic girl's night of drinking wine and watching movies with her best friend in the grand old house, but when a snowstorm hits, Nicole finds herself alone. Bliss House is restless, and as Nicole's darkest secrets surface, the house will use them to try to make her one more victim of its deadly games.

Set in 2008, Cold Alone: A Bliss House Story, is a quick glimpse into the terrifying world introduced in Laura Benedict's contemporary gothic suspense novel, BLISS HOUSE. The second installment of the Bliss House series of novels is CHARLOTTE'S STORY (October 2015), set in 1957, in which Charlotte Bliss can only learn the truth about the man she married, and the death of her four-year-old daughter by letting the troubled ghosts of Bliss House lead her.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to spend a night alone in a haunted house? Cold Alone is a look into the frightful night of one housekeepers ordeal. While Cold Alone by Laura Benedict is such a fast read that it seems to end before it even begins, it is a heart-thumping good read. And once you are finished with it you can be thankful that more thrills can currently be found in two full length novels; Bliss House and Charlotte's Story.

I am a big fan of Laura Benedict! Each novel brings me to another place where I will not know which direction to turn until the book shows me. Laura Benedict's Bliss House left me wanting more and asking questions. Cold Alone, helped to bring me back to that wonderfully creepy place! With a story line that moves quickly, you will be instantly hooked on this longer than a short story, but shorter than a novel. I found myself reading with anticipation of what would happen next. Cold Alone will leave you wanting more and thinking about what Bliss House would reveal to you.
