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.

      Thanks for sharing your review. I read this with my ears and that fear and tension definitely came through. Why didn’t I think of a toddy remedy? HA! At 126 pages/ 2 hour listen two toddies could make for an interesting post-reading experience. I am IN!
