Not even death can calm a vengeful soul.

Lansing Abbott wants to find the perfect place to spend her sabbatical from teaching history at a private university in Rhode Island. After reading about the ethereal guests that still inhabit the Silent Cove Bed & Breakfast, she packs her bags for Chistine, Maine. While exploring the grounds of the inn, she stumbles upon an unmarked grave, and uncovers a secret many residents want to remain buried.

The last thing Tucker Kingsley wants is to go to Chistine and handle his dead uncle’s estate. He knows next to nothing about his father’s only brother, and even less about the mysterious deaths that plague their family. Until a chance encounter brings him face-to-face with his great, great grandfather—who’s been dead for nearly a century.

When Lansing offers to help Tucker clear out his uncle’s home, things begin to heat up between the couple. Little by little they begin to piece together a family secret—one that may end both of their lives.

Can they survive the horrors that await them at Silent Cove?

Favorite Quotes:

 

People could be cruel in their Christian values, and often found guilt through association with those they perceived as less than godly individuals… Those were the same people who would come to parties at the mansion Maurice had spent millions to build and then given to his mistress. They were all two-faced Saturday night sinners who would beg for forgiveness in church on Sunday morning.

 

It wasn’t a question, which wasn’t all that surprising in a small town like Chistine. Some of these families had been among the first settlers in the area. New people stuck out like a pimple on picture day.

 

Holy mother of lust!

 

My Review:

 

Carmen and Angelo seem to have found the secret to transforming Silent Cove B&B into a successful enterprise by marketing themselves as having something extra special and outside the norm of the typical B&B on their lovely grounds, and thankfully, it is working.  Yet even with protections in place, additional somethings (or someones) have slipped through to find and bedevil one of the new guests with a family connection.  These sly writers have added an additional level of intrigue, tragedy, and drama to the series with a totally new specter, as well as several additional mysteries to cause distress to the living and stir the ire of the restless spirits.  The plot was twisty and a bit complicated by a long slate of family members/characters past and present to track and make sense of, although my addled pea brain managed just fine, which proves the task doable.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Born and raised in the Rocky Mountains, Anne L. Parks has spent the last 25 years moving all over the United States. Married to the Navy – well a Commander in the Navy – Parks has lived in various locales throughout the United States. She currently resides in the Washington D.C area, and is loving every minute. When not writing, she spends her time reading, doing yoga, mountain biking, and keeping track of four kids. And drinking wine.

2013 marked her debut in publishing. Her first novel, Strangers, released on her 45th birthday. She was amazed at the number of people who fell in love with a story about two people dealing with grief, and finding love again. Abby and Bryce were the perfect couple to introduce Parks as an up-and-coming author.

Her second novel, The Return, released in December 2013. A wonderful Christmas romance, it is the first book in the Return To Me series. Book two, Return To Newport, released April 29th, and followed the couple through the murky waters of saying good-bye to a past that refused to let go. Lauren’s Return, the third book in the series, released on August 19th. This chronicles the challenges of bringing together a family amidst tragedy and death, and still holding firmly to the love they have fought so hard to keep alive. The fourth book, Returning Home, shifts the focus away from Jake and Eve, and delves into the life Eve’s eldest daughter. Clarissa has a secret she has guarded for most of her life. Fearing it will be revealed, she refuses to allow love into her heart – until she meets Griff. December 2014 brought the close of this series, with the release of RSVP: A Return To Me Christmas novella. The wedding of the year is threatened by Mother Nature, forcing the couple to re-evaluate whether “happily ever after” is really attainable.

Stepping out of her comfort zone, Parks delved into the paranormal with a group of highly talented authors. The result? An unexpected fantasy of four sisters fighting to save the earth – and each other – from their deranged mother. Elementals, A Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance Anthology, released on May 15th. Summer brought more collaboration with the release of a Fourth of July themed short story, FlyBoy, that was included in the Sparks Fly boxed set.

Of Demons & Stones, the first book in the Tri-Stone Trilogy, also released in July 2015. Book two will release July 2016, and will pick up where Kylie and Alex left off, and is sure to take readers on a rollercoaster ride of suspense.
