Review

History professor Brodie Macbeth is planning her breakup with her wealthy, cold colleague Stanton Sloane when she receives a phone call from the Boston police.They tell her that her father and department chair, Wallace Macbeth, is dead after falling from a hotel window, an apparent suicide. Soon, she's puzzling over unusual requests in her father's will, which ask her to move into the house she grew up in, to keep her dad's longtime car registration active, to read his entire library, and to deliver a painting to her aunt in Edinburgh, Scotland. When she meets attractive U.S. Marine veteran Joe Birnam on the international flight, it renews her resolve to end her relationship with Stanton . . .

In Scotland, Brodie is troubled by nightmares as well as by faraway unrest in the history department, so her relationship with Joe initially stalls. Joe's own insecurities concerning his war wounds contribute to the problem, but once they overcome these melodramatic conflicts, their romance flourishes. When Brodie discovers the shocking, supernatural cause of her nightmares, it imperils not only her relationship with Joe, but also both their lives. The author expertly interweaves historical facts, drawn from the books Brodie is reading, into the character's bad dreams. Both Brodie and Joe are relatable characters; indeed, he's so perfectly flawed that many readers may fall in love with him, too.

A suspenseful, page-turning paranormal romance. --KIRKUS REVIEWS

From the Author

The premise of AWAKENING MACBETH is that brokenhearted souls wander in search of answers. That restlessness takes place in dreams, where evil stalks in an unending quest for souls to steal . . . 

Where did the idea for this book come from?
My grandmother always said never wake a sleeping child too fast because the soul wanders while we sleep and needs time to return before we're fully awake. When I combined my grandmother's words with the saying that the eyes are the windows of the soul, the result gave me chills. I knew it would be a great story.
 
What was the hardest part of writing thisbook?
The hardest thing was the concept of real evil able to threaten the immortal soul. I hate movies like The Exorcist and had to stop writing several times, too shaken to go on. But evil is out there and this is my interpretation of it.
 
What draws you to this genre?
Love and mystery are the perfect combo. Each needs a bit of the other in a book, just like in real life. Romantic thrillers build a relationship, then test it. Can it hold up in a storm? The more exciting the storm, the better.
