Book Description

Lyss Brewer is starting the new year in a cheap motel with a wrinkled party dress and mascara stains on her cheeks. No job. No money. And as of New Year's Eve: No boyfriend and no place to live.

Just when everything is going completely wrong, something finally goes right. Lyss is given the chance to start over when she is offered a live-in position at an historic inn. The inn will become her sanctuary, and the colorful characters who work there will become her family. However, Lyss will soon discover that the walls which surround her hold much more than history.

As fear of a serial killer spreads throughout the city of Santa Fe, Lyss begins to wrestle with her own sanity. Is she hallucinating or is she really seeing ghosts? Just when she thinks she's found the connection, her world is turned upside down.

Will Lyss listen to the voices that haunt her? Or will she trust the one person who can't be trusted?

Follow Lyss' journey as she discovers herself and learns to spread her wings in this paranormal mystery.


Editorial Reviews

About the Author

She’s the type of person who doesn’t have a favorite color. She's a gypsy at heart who was raised on country music, green chile, and change. Sarah Spann got her start working as a freelance writer specializing in travel and style. She has written articles, web content and blogs for both small businesses and large corporations. Prior to working full-time as a writer she spent four years working at a bed & breakfast inn, a short stint working as the only vegetarian at a chicken wings stop, a house cleaner, a house sitter guaranteed to lose your cats, a gift basket designer, and the little waitress that couldn't. Somewhere in between she was waitlisted for film school and rejected by a popular television singing competition. When Sarah isn’t writing or designing she can be found dining on gourmet food, spending time at the opera, and taming lions. Well…not really. Actually, you can find her making a mess in the kitchen as she tries out impossibly difficult exotic recipes for foods she can't pronounce, watching all of her favorite shows and/or football on TV, and playing with her lazy, fat cat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Debut Novel October 5, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I absolutely loved this book! The character of Lyss was fun, snarky, with a bit of deep-set angst. She found she has a gift of seeing, which makes her think she is crazy. I liked the relationships she had with the people at the inn. They were all unique characters that Lyss grew to love like family. I do wish there was a little more of Gloria because she seemed so eccentric, but the reason for her absence is understood and explained.

The history behind what's going on is a great story in and of itself. The words of the author had me turning page after page wanting to see what happens. As I was nearing the end, I feared I wasn't going to uncover who the culprit was, but of course Spann didn't let us hang. She revealed not only the culprit, but something else very significant that literally gave me goosebumps!

I don't want to give any spoilers, so I have to keep this review brief. There is a lot I want to discuss, all great, but the readers should get to experience it themselves. This book is highly recommended by me. Spann has a way with words. The fact that this is her debut novel shows that we can expect more great works from her in the future. Pick this book up today!

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent read! December 18, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sarah Spann takes us on an amazing journey. We meet the charming Lyss. Full of youthful energy, angst and internal turmoil. Spann introduces us to a charming Santa Fe inn filled with an intriguing staff and, I swear, I could taste the dishes that came from the inn's kitchen! You and Lyss will also encounter something that neither of you expect...I really can't give away any more, but I will tell you that I am normally good a guessing where a mystery is headed, but not with Wildflowers Come Back. Midway through the book, 75% into it...and even the last page, caught me by surprise. That's hard to find in any book. This isn't just any book. It's a must read, and I guarantee that after you read it,you will want to immediately read it again!

5.0 out of 5 stars I want more! October 7, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just finished reading this, and I really hope there's more! The story ends a little open ended, which I like but at the same don't like...unless there's a sequel! Lyss is a very relatable character; I think we've all found ourselves at rock bottom at least once in our lives, and have had to learn to get back up.

It's an easy, fun and fast read, another plus. I don't like long-winded chapters or storylines.
Great job on your first novel, Sarah. I can't wait to read more from you!

4.0 out of 5 stars Spooky! February 7, 2012
By Pickles
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The author is really, really good describing the chilling parts. Just enough characters to keep you guessing.

A "easy" ghost mystery where you will be able to turn the lights off and go to sleep.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent dialogue and I loved Lyss January 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I wasn't sure what to expect from this book but I had a feeling I'd be quite entertained. As someone who follows Sarah on Twitter, her witty tweets set my expectations high and I have to say, this book didn't disappoint. I wasn't expecting a paranormal but I caught on by chapter 4 that something wasn't right about the girl talking to Lyss. I was expecting some kind of romance and the book toys around with romance but veers away often to dive into the suspense of serial killers, mysteries and ghosts. The writing was so well done in this book that I have to say by then end of it, I wouldn't have cared what it was about because I loved it. I believe that Sarah Spann is one who will eventually join the ranks of the more reliable Indie Writers that you can count on not only a professional appearance, but excellent editing. This book would get five stars for the story and an additional star if I could for the professionalism that made the book read easy and comfortably.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome stuff! October 18, 2011
By Barl0we
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wildflowers Come Back is definetely worth the read!

A neat story with potential for one or more sequels - and as mr. Merrick points out, as a guy I was also kind of worried by the whole romance thing, but it fits the story without taking over the story.

Can't wait for more :)

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointed. February 16, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I wished I would of read more the reviews before I bought this book. It was a waste of time. I kept reading because I thought it would get better but it just got worse. If the author does write a follow up book, I will not bother to read it.

Dont read this book if you care about the fate of main characters. Senseless death. Dont read this book if you need closure. Issues are left unresolved.

I think Sarah Spann shows great promise as a writer. She really shines at character description - even people she only drops in for a few pages are fully fleshed and vibrant. Read more
