Sometimes love lasts forever…but maybe it shouldn’t. Willowwind, a beautiful Civil War era bed and breakfast, is run by a loving couple, Adrian and Caroline Stone, but it’s also haunted by a long-dead Civil War era vampiress, Lilith, who believes the man, Adrian, is her reincarnated soldier/lover and will do anything to have him, body-heart-and soul, for her own again, no matter how many she must kill. But Adrian’s wife, Caroline, along with the help of the ghost of her dead father, will do anything to make sure that doesn’t happen.
This was definitely an adrenaline read. My heart raced more reading this book than watching a scary movie. I had to keep the lights on and make sure every window and door were locked and forget about getting any sleep. But I love stories like that! The set back to this story, the first few scenes and chapters are slow. I had to make myself continue to read to see what would happen next. But once I got past the slow part the action really started to pick up in the story. Ms. Griffith did a beautiful job describing a world and characters that captured your attention and pulled you into the story. I was so captivated by what was going on I didn’t want to stop reading. She throws in enough twists and turns to have your anticipating the next move but the author completely throwing you off and surprising you. It’s definitely a read worth checking out to anyone who enjoys suspense and that scary factor thrown in. Definitely an author I want to read more of.
