After a rather extended break I am back and excited to announce that my next book, The Inn of the Kindred Spirits, a novella featuring Tallis Challinor, will be released in November. Tallis finally gets a vacation in this short novel, and she can’t imagine a better place to relax than Carnac, France, on the southern coast of Brittany. Unfortunately, her plans go awry when, once again, she’s faced with spirits who refuse to leave the living alone.
I’ll be updating the final release date for The Inn of the Kindred Spirits and do a cover reveal as we get closer to release date. For now, here’s the back of the book blurb. I’m sure it will pique your interest if you’re a ghostbuster like Tallis.
Brittany, France. Near the coast. A picturesque inn. Spectacular scenery. Tasty French treats. Time off from school.
Tallis Challinor imagines this as the perfect vacation scenario, so when her grandfather suggests that she accompany him to the country of her ancestors, she is more than happy to tag along. What Tallis doesn’t bargain on is another ghostly encounter, especially not so soon after she’s sealed up a bunch of unruly ghosts on their side of the portal between the human and spirit realms. But, when she feels the energy radiating from the megalithic standing stones dotting the countryside around Carnac, France, an energy that feels frighteningly like the power exuding from the portal in her basement back home, she has a feeling she might be in trouble. And she is right.
When her grandfather goes missing, Tallis leaps into action. She calls the only ghostbuster she knows in France and, with help on the way, she gears up to battle another set of spirits bent on causing destruction. Along the way, Tallis is forced to examine her life, her relationships, and her tightly-held beliefs about who she is and where she comes from. She also has to juggle two impossible males, both attractive but annoying, both seemingly set on driving her nuts or breaking her heart.
