Book Description:
Joslyn Faust passed away in 1940, after losing all but one of her children to death. The Weatherby Mills history books paint her as a kind, generous woman, willing to lend a hand to any one of her neighbors. Weatherby Mills lore, however, blames her ghost for the deaths of at least four men.

That’s where Delilah Isles and Milly West come in.

Working for the New England Spirit Society, the women have seen many violent and cruel attacks by human spirits and non-human entities. After all, the most violent and disturbing cases come to them. They know the myths about Joslyn Faust, so when the case comes their way they are both anxious to start investigating and uncertain whether or not it’s a case for N.E.S.S. But the first time they set foot on the Faust property that uncertainty is vanquished, because Joslyn Faust turns out to be a whole lot darker than they anticipated.

Short Excerpt:

Delilah Isles was certain of two things: pork roast in the slow cooker was the best in cold weather, and the woman in her kitchen was dead.

The elderly woman, around seventy-five or eighty with a slim build, lifted the cover of the slow cooker, leaned slightly forward, and inhaled. Her gray hair was in a neat bun and she wore a long lemon-yellow sleeveless nightgown from the nineteen forties. The woman smiled as she inhaled again, closing her eyes.

Delilah hated to interrupt, but it was eleven thirty, and she was tired. She could see, sense, and speak to the dead—amongst other abilities—but she never would have known this ghost was in her house if she had not been awake. The woman was quiet, calm. Benign.

Delilah cleared her throat, hoping not to startle the woman. The gray-haired lady motioned with her free hand but took her time looking back at Delilah, taking a last inhale and putting the cover back on the slow cooker. When their gazes finally met, the lady’s light blue eyes struck Delilah—they were much like her own.

“Hello there, dear,” the lady said. “Did I interrupt your sleep? I hope I haven’t…”

Delilah smiled and walked closer to the woman. “No, I was just getting ready for bed. I’m going somewhere tomorrow.”

“Oh, good! That I didn’t wake you, I mean. I was being very careful to be quiet.” She waved a hand at the slow cooker. “My husband used to cook all the food. He loved to cook, my Nathan.”

Delilah laughed softly. “My name is Delilah Isles.”

A Few of My Favorite Things

Paranormal things, that is J
I’ve been reading and writing the paranormal since I was a teenager, devouring and creating words as if my life depended on it. I find the paranormal fascinating and still gravitate towards the genre in both my writing and my reading. Here are a few of my favorite books and movies:
The Shining and Carrie by Stephen King
My collection of Edgar Allan Poe short stories
The Jill Kismet series by Lilith Saintcrow
The Downside series by Stacia Kane

Carrie (the original)
The Ring
The Conjuring

And just for fun!

Buffy the Vampire Slayer
The Walking Dead

What are a few of your favorite paranormal things?


This book hooked me from the first line. The characters reminded me of people you might have in your own life, with idle talk that was comforting and had me smiling often. The only difference is the ghosts. This town seems to have an over abundance of them. With murder and mayhem on the loose, the paranormal investigations go from lightly funny to darn right intense. If you are looking for a good read to keep you warm this holiday season (or anytime) give this book a try. It has something for everyone-romance, ghosts, murder and a very tasty smelling pork roast.
