First-time author, Richard Taylor, will have you begging for more of his haunting and beautiful writing. This original and well-executed idea will keep you interested throughout.
Theo's wife, Lily, died in a car accident the same day they signed the escrow papers of their new bed and breakfast, The Monroe House.
Devastated and guilt-ridden, Theo soon learns that he can't bring his wife back anymore than he can kill the thing that haunts his new home in a small quaint town, Cambria.
After some recuperation from the car accident that killed Lily, the realization that he still has purpose hits him and propels him forward. The bed and breakfast beckoned him to do something with it. The caretaker and property manager, Eleanor Gacy was also begging for something to be done with her.
This lonely man and mis-understood girl set out on a journey to remodel the bed and breakfast. The building, however, has different ideas. Over time, a secret that has been hiding since the 19th century emerges, and they find themselves in over their heads. With trial and error, perseverence, and the help of a few friends, they investigate the strange occurances and attempt to solve the mystery of The Monroe House. As they do, Theo and Eleanor begin to see a bit of hope for a second chance of love and redemption.
I highly recommend this book. Don't be surprised if you find yourself seeing ghosts out of the corner of your eye while reading.
