Ghosts: Leeann

G H O S T S

You are now going up a third flight up steps.

A young lady is coming down the stairs.

She mentions that Dr. Viiiii's laboratory is on the top most floor.

But first pulls you aside to tell you her ghost story...

The Wedding Gift
by Kathleen McKenna

Description from the amazon:
17 year old Leeann Worthier is the perfect girl in town - or so she says. George Willets is the heir to a booming petroleum business. When they announce their engagement, George's controlling mother is unimpressed, and Leeann absolutely refuses to live with her mother-in-law. So George gives his new wife a house as a wedding gift.

Thirty years before, the same house hosted a grisly scene: George's uncle and cousins were all slaughtered and his aunt Robina accused of both murder and suicide.

The house is a gorgeous, well-maintained mansion, but has stood empty since the tragedy. It's intimidating, but who is Leeann to turn down a free house? When the ghost of Robina begins to haunt Leeann, she realizes she's made a huge mistake ....

  1. I'm not sure which I like best about 'The Wedding Gift" ... the summary or the cover art LOL

    But I really want to read this one!

    From Kathleen's interview I learned: She wrote the first paragraph to her book and then it was FIFTEEN years later until she wrote the second paragraph!

    That sounds a lot like me haha

  2. She was brought into the paranormal genre when she read Stephen King, when she was way too young for it & read Salem's Lot and ended up sleeping under her bed for weeks...
