We spent all day yesterday buffing up the rough edges to bring the 18th book of the Haunted Series to you as promised.
I really enjoyed writing this book. I think you’ll find a lot of your questions answered while exploring Roustan Rose, a notorious haunted house.
Caution, this is a longer book, so stock up on treats and let your loved ones know you’re reading and haven’t disappeared. True story, when I was a teen, my father called for lights out when I only had a few chapters left of the thrilling book I was reading. I didn’t want to disturb my younger sister so I waited until the house was still, before I snuck down the hall to the bathroom, rolled up a towel, and put it under the door before turning on the light. I then laid on the tile floor and finished the novel. Now with e-readers we can read in the dark. Although, it is pretty scary walking through the house and seeing a disembodied head illuminated by the iPad sitting in the living room.
Thank you, to all of you readers for the messages and encouraging comments.
Blurb and links after the jump.
Who knowingly buys a haunted mansion in Chicago? A mansion so haunted that not even a developer will touch it? PEEPs originating partner Mike Dupree’s mother, Glenda, knows a deal when she sees it. This beautiful rose-brick mansion has stood since the Chicago fire. The interior is pristine, and the neighborhood is rapidly becoming the place to live in the Windy City. Glenda enters into a provisional sale on Rouston Rose and hires the Paranormal Entity Exposure Partners to clean house. They have one month to identify the problem and escort whomever is haunting the mansion out. If it can’t be done, Glenda is out a packet of money.
From the moment Mia steps into the house, she knows something is wrong. Her intuition has left her, and her ability to communicate silently with Murphy is gone. Whatever resides there is so powerful that it has crippled the most powerful sensitive of her generation. The PEEPs prepare the house for a full investigation while the wind howls outside. Chicago is forecast to have a mild blizzard, if a blizzard can be mild.
Almost immediately, Mia, Cid, and Murphy are taken by the resident ghost Renee. While the snow accumulates outside, the PEEPs struggle to unlock the mystery of the house and get their people back. But Renee is just one petal on the rose of evil that lives and thrives in Roustan Rose.
