Blurb : 

It’s all photographer Jessa Bennett can do to understand the bizarre, unnatural world of speaking to dead ancestors that Maria believed in, but Maria has been missing for three years, and everyone assumes Mitch Conner has gotten away with murder.

Hired by Maria’s parents to find out why, Jessa clandestinely snoops in Mitch’s historic home, Bristol House. She finds more questions than answers: what is the medallion key to the dead world; why does she keep feeling like her mornings are repeating; and why does the postcard of Bristol House keep changing? But mostly, why does Maria’s ghost show up first in Jessa’s camera, then in her dreams? What does Maria want?

The ghosts of Bristol House come alive to draw Jessa into a world she didn’t think existed outside of nightmares, and she uncovers a hundred and fifty year old secret in order to solve the mystery of the missing young woman.
About the Author:

I have been a teacher in Kansas for 33 years. I enjoy writing, riding my bicycle, and spending time with my husband. I am an avid photographer and Photoshop user. Currently, I am working on a dark trilogy for young adults;  the first of which I am hoping will be completed by the end of the summer 2013.

            Love this story.  I just found a great new author to read.  This book is spooky, funny, sad, creepy, mysterious, and romantic.  Somehow author Donna Hawk manages to take all these disparate genres and emotions and spins them into a beautiful and moving tapestry of words.  This story far exceeded my expectations.

            If you like scary movies, ghost stories, twisted romances, or mysterious stories, then this is the book for you.  I give this book 5 out of 5 clouds.
