Diana Garson was instantly drawn to the charming old beach house in the Hamptons. Life in Manhattan was so stressful for her that she was on the verge of a nervous or emotional breakdown of some kind. So here she was, in the Hamptons, wandering through a lovely old house - seeking a place to recuperate and refresh - basking in the peaceful aura that the house radiated.

Sleeping alone in the house one night, Diana is startled awake by soft laughter, voices and eerie piano music. Soon the Woodhull family appears - mother Grace, daughter Sheila, and son Derek, so handsome in his army uniform. A photograph album had sparked Diana's interest in finding out who had previously lived in the house, and now, Grace, Sheila and Derek had returned because she was so intrigued. And because the boating accident that had claimed their lives so long ago was not accidental at all - but murder.

I really enjoyed reading The People From The Sea. It had just the right amount of eeriness and intrigue in it that I devoured it in one day. I may have several books by Velda Johnston on my bookshelf, but this is the first one that I've read. I give The People From the Sea by Velda Johnston an A+! and am looking forward to reading more from this author in the future.

Short but sweet. If you like a hint of the supernatural, you'll like this.
