The dog days of summer are winding down (even though I’m going to endure 100+ degree weather until late October) and I’m already thinking about all the Halloweenie books I’m going to read this fall! It’s funny how my moods shift when the seasons change. Just like changing out my summer and winter wardrobe, I like to switch from light and frothy romances to gothic mysteries when the days grow shorter. And what better way to ring in the Halloween season than with a classic haunted house tale? That’s why I chose Heather Graham’s latest thriller – an atmospheric mystery surrounding a haunted mansion filled with ghosties and dark secrets!
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights exciting upcoming releases. My pick this week is “The Evil Inside.” Brrr….the title alone gives me the williebumps!
For as long as it has stood overlooking New England’s jagged coastline, Lexington House has been the witness to madness…and murder. But in recent years the inexplicable malice that once tormented so many has lain as silent as its victims. Until now…
A member of the nation’s foremost paranormal forensic team, Jenna Duffy has made a career out of investigating the inexplicable. Yet nothing could prepare her for the string of slayings once again plaguing Lexington House – or for the chief suspect, a boy barely old enough to drive, much less kill.
With the young man’s life on the line, Jenna must team up with attorney Samuel Hill to pinpoint who – or what – is taking the lives of those who get too close to the past. But everything they learn brings them closer to the forces of evil stalking this tortured ground.
