"the author writes a great mystery!"- verified reviewer
The old, spooky farm house looked as though everyone just got up one day and walked away, leaving their belongings behind. Locals called it the "devil's house" but artist Taryn Magill has never met an old, abandoned house she didn’t like. In fact, she’s made a career of painting them. She might have bitten off more than she can chew with her new job, however. Everyone is afraid of the house and can't wait to see it torn down and, as it turns out, their fears may not be unfounded.
Whose cries echo throughout the rooms? What force is SO powerful that it won’t even allow the upstairs bedroom to be touched? What, if anything, does the 93-year-old vanishing of the boy next door have to do with the house’s mysteries? Taryn might have the answers soon, for now she doesn't have to imagine the past–she can see it through her camera!
Can Taryn escape with her sanity AND solve the mystery of Windwood Farm before the house is demolished? And will she even live through this job? Because now someone is trying to kill her! Using her camera and her wits, she’ll try to find the answers and get out before it’s too late!
Book 1 in the Taryn’s Camera series. A traditional ghost story and mystery in the style of Shirley Jackson, Susan Hill, Heather Graham, and early Stephen King, Taryn’s Camera is a paranormal mystery series about a woman who can see the past through her camera. A little gothic horror, a little supernatural suspense, a little historical mystery-and a whole lot of fun!
About the Author
Rebecca Patrick-Howard's real biography isn't nearly as interesting as the one she's made up in her head so she'll leave you with that one:
At the age of 3, her family sold her to a band of traveling gypsies. Forced to become a bareback rider in the circus, she spent her younger years traveling the country, living out of suitcases and selling macrame keychains on the side. At the age of 16 she became a professional yodeler but, after winning the international yodeling competition in Switzerland at 19, decided to retire at the height of her career. Now, she and her husband (an organic rutabaga farmer from Wales) live in an isolated cabin in eastern Kentucky where they play with a local mariachi band every Friday night, are involved with a murder mystery dinner theater club, and enjoy making origami owls.http: //www.rebeccaphoward.net
