Welcome! Foolish Mortals, to the Haunted Kindle library, I am your host, your ghost host. Hmmmm. Our tour begins here, in this gallery. Here where you see paintings of some of our guests, as they appeared in their corruptible, mortal state. Kindly step all the way in please, and make room for everyone. There's no turning back now...
ahem. Sorry, always wanted to do the greeting from the Disney haunted mansion. Here's the real thing..
Our book for October was Gingerbread Man by Maggie Shayne. A summary:
Since the day her baby sister was taken, Holly's mind hasn't been the same. PTSD, panic attacks, nightmares and blocked memories have plagued her ever since. And now they've returned.
Hard-edged Detective Vince O'Malley's most recent case penetrated even his protective shell. Ordered to take time off to recover, he can't let go, and on his own, follows the clues to Holly's small upstate NY town.
His presence stirs ghosts from the past, shadows of a little girl lost, the suspicions of some tight-lipped locals with secrets to hide, and more than that inside Holly's fragile mind and untouched heart.
As a side note, Maggie Shayne is another of my favorite author out of the 80's harlequin. As I remember, she could be counted on for dark heroes, and led the way into edgier stories, her Twilight series was one of the first vampire paranormal romances with no sparkle.
So, let's get started. What did you think about the book?
Oh,if you keep seeing flickers of white out of the corner of your eye, it's probably Blue jumping from hiding place to hiding place chasing a spider...probably....
