New Release! The Destination Harbor Pointe Series Book 3 @dlfinnauthor #harborpointeseries #writingcommunity #whattoread #halloween #halloweenpics

Hooray! Tomorrow is the release day for The Destination. I am also sharing some fun pictures since tomorrow is Halloween.

Since I don’t have a review for myself I’ll pick the first one posted on Goodreads.


The Harbor Pointe Inn has loomed on California’s cliffs for generations of Hawthornes. For some, it’s been a blessing. For others, a curse. Travel through two centuries of stories to discover the old inn’s secrets.

It’s 1967, and best friends Lacey and Sandy are enjoying a beach vacation, completely unaware of the danger that is lying in wait outside their door. Their room is quaint, with an amazing view of the Pacific Ocean and an old lighthouse, but a killer is stalking their next victim. Powerless, Annie the ghost watches, knowing there’s nothing she can do to help—not even her parents, the innkeepers. Who will survive their stay at the Harbor Pointe Inn, where the edge of evil lurks within the shadows?

Review by Staci Troilo

First, Oscar and Felix. Then, Thelma and Louise. Now, Lacey and Sandy.

Lacey and Sandy are the best of friends, closer than sisters. But they couldn’t be more different. Lacey is a free spirit, adventurous, always chasing fabulous experiences. Sandy is a people-pleaser. She does what’s expected of her because she loves the calm… even if that means sacrificing her happiness to maintain it. Many of us have probably been a Lacey or a Sandy in a friendship. I know I have been. (And no, I won’t share which one.) It’s because these two diametrically opposed personalities are so familiar that these characters are so relatable. Opposites attract, right? These two have a soul-deep bond, and it leaps off the page.

I absolutely love this friendship, and it carries the story to new heights, but it’s not the only thing that caught my attention. Danger lurks. Residents of Harbor Pointe may have a guardian angel, but the two friends are slightly out of her purview. She does what she can to help, but I held my breath until I saw if it was enough. And I promise, the evil is unparalleled. There’s a real-world reference to someone so malevolent, readers can’t help but fear the worst for the characters.

Whether you believe in guardian angels or not, I invite you to imagine having one. One who’s invested, involved, and goes above and beyond to intervene for your safety. That’s the premise in The Destination, and it will have you thinking “what if…” the whole way through. What if Annie doesn’t see the source of the danger? What if Annie doesn’t keep her parents at the inn? What if Annie isn’t powerful enough to save the visiting friends?

I won’t answer those questions. But I challenge readers not to race to the end to find the answers. Paranormal fans won’t want to miss this one. Highly recommended.

Thank you, Staci!
Now on to Halloween. Here are some fun pictures from past and present.
And this year:
Embrace your inner child. Happy Halloween 🙂 D. L. Finn
