SPOOK ALERT! PERFECT BOOK FOR HALLOWEEN!
From the #1 Amazon Charts bestselling author of Daughters of the Lake comes an enthralling spellbinder of love, death, and a woman on the edge by author, Wendy Webb.
After a devastating loss, Brynn Wilder escapes to Wharton, a tourist town on Lake Superior, to reset. Checking into a quaint boardinghouse for the summer, she hopes to put her life into perspective. In her fellow lodgers, she finds a friendly company of strangers: the frail Alice, cared for by a married couple with a heartbreaking story of their own; LuAnn, the eccentric and lovable owner of the inn; and Dominic, an unsettlingly handsome man inked from head to toe in mesmerizing tattoos.
But in this inviting refuge, where a century of souls has passed, a mystery begins to swirl. Alice knows things about Brynn, about all of them, that she shouldn’t. Bad dreams and night whispers lure Brynn to a shuttered room at the end of the hall, a room still heavy with a recent death. And now she’s become irresistibly drawn to Dominic—even in the shadow of rumors that wherever he goes, suspicious death follows.
In this chilling season of love, transformation, and fear, something is calling for Brynn. To settle her past, she may have no choice but to follow her instincts. Happy Halloween!
Two books set Wendy on the path of her life—Little Women, by Louisa May Alcott and A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L’Engle. Through those two books, she realized her love of storytelling, and knew, by the time she was about 11 years old, that she wanted to be a novelist someday.
Wendy was born and raised in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, a suburb of Minneapolis. She graduated from the University of Minnesota, where she majored in political science and minored in French and history. After college, she spent some time living in France with two lifelong friends, and when she returned to the States, she was fortunate enough to get an internship with a congressman in Washington, D.C., and later a job with a Minnesota senator.
When she moved back to Minnesota, Wendy got her first writing job with City Pages, an arts and entertainment weekly in Minneapolis. She has been a journalist ever since, writing for national and local magazines and newspapers, including Duluth Superior Magazine, where she was editor-in-chief for almost eight years.
Even though she loved her career as a journalist, she never forgot her dream of being a novelist. Finding the time to write a novel—that was the hard part. What with making a living and taking care of a young son, she just couldn’t find the luxury of spending time devoted to a dream. But finally, when her son Ben was in school and she was working from home as a freelance journalist, she realized she actually had the time to start writing her first novel. And she never looked back.
Wendy lived in Duluth, MN for 16 years with her family and three beloved Malamutes. Now she’s back in her home town of Minneapolis, where she is currently at work on her next novel and looking for a new dog. We have one copy to giveaway. Just tell us your plans for Halloween.
