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.

  1. I'm delighted that you enjoyed my paranormal romance! Thank you so much for reviewing.
    By the way, I reviewed books for Publishers Weekly for years, and all the copies were provided free by the publishers, so this is industry standard.
