Yay! Tomorrow is the release day for the fifth book of the Harbor Pointe Series. If you haven’t picked up your copy there is still time. I am sharing the blurb and my review here today.
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.
What’s the point of having it all when you have no one to share it with?
Brandon Miller has his dream job, financial security, and he’s madly in love. Only one thing is missing—a commitment.
Angela Cooper’s ex-husband left her with deep scars, souring her on the concept of marriage. She’s not interested in a do-over. Not with Brandon or anyone. Her heart is locked securely away behind a thick wall.
With a ring in his pocket and hope in his heart, Brandon arranges a romantic getaway to the historic Harbor Pointe Inn, where he plans to pop the question.
Before they reach the inn, Angela’s got her camera in hand and ghosts on her mind. But they arrive to find a much more tangible horror.
Accident or foul play?
Someone is up to no good, and Angela is the next target. When suspects can be worldly or otherworldly, danger and secrets lurk everywhere.
Poised at the perilous edge of too late, Angela and Brandon face the fight of their lives.
Brandon has it all: money, success, and a girlfriend he loves. He takes her on a romantic getaway, hoping to get engaged. The only problem is after Angela’s disastrous first marriage, she doesn’t want to do that again. Their weekend is set at a quaint inn by the ocean. A place where Angela wants to ghost hunt and Brandon wants his happily ever after. But something at the inn is a threat to Angela and this sweet romantic weekend switches to survival. Brandon and Angela are characters you can’t help but root for and love. Both are good-hearted but with different ideas of what their relationship should be or shouldn’t be. Although Angela needed to open her heart, there were distractions like creepy men and ghosts. I loved the setting in the late 80s and all the little details that drew me into the story. This paranormal-romantic thriller was a page-turner that I finished in one sitting. I couldn’t wait to see how it all worked out and I can easily recommend it.
I’ve been an avid reader all my life. I can still remember the excitement that surged through me the first time I realized I could decipher words. There’s nothing I love more than losing myself in a story.
Oddly enough, I never had any ambition to be a writer. But I wound up in mid-life with a story that begged to be told. Not just any story, but a true story that rivaled any fiction creation. Through fictitious characters, the tale came to life in an intricately woven tale that encompasses four books. Not satisfied to stop with the books, I released music CDs of original music to match the time period of each story segment. In conclusion, to bring the story full circle, I published a book of poetry and art. I was done.
The story ideas keep coming, and I don’t intend to turn off the creative fountain.
I love all things metaphysical and often include those aspects in my stories.
