"Haunting Miss Trentwood is very well written with clever dialog and a rambunctious ghost. (Who wouldn't love that?) I spent an entire day reading it because I was unable to put it down, and I came away satisfied by the ending. It was a very enjoyable read. Humorous, but never over the top." - N.M. Martinez
"Haunting Miss Trentwood is, without doubt, one of the finest books I have had the pleasure of reading. Belinda Kroll writes with such fluidity in a style that is reminiscent of classic authors like Jane Austen. I was swept into the story from the very first page and I found it
difficult to put down, often staying up late into the night to complete 'just a few more chapters'. I was not disappointed at any stage within the book, it flowed beautifully, making me feel that I didn't want it to end." - Suzy Turner

Mary Trentwood is horrified when she watches her father crawl from his grave the day of his funeral. Mistaking the newly-arrived Alexander Hartwell to be her father's solicitor, Mary welcomes him into her home, not realizing he hunts a blackmailer.
Why is Trentwood's ghost determined to make everyone think Mary is insane? Why is Hartwell snooping around Mary's home rather than looking over Trentwood's papers? Who is the blackmailer, and what are they doing in Mary's home?
About the Author
I combine my nerd-love of Victorian history with my passion for storytelling in my quirky Victorian romances. I dabble in contemporary fiction via my short stories. I’m a writer, born and raised in Ohio, and proud of it. I wrote my first “novel” in fourth grade, and my second in sixth grade. That second novel became my high school senior thesis which I published as the first edition of Catching the Rose. My formative years in junior high and high school were spent reading Jane Austen, Louisa May Alcott, the Bronte sisters, L.M. Montgomery, Ann Rinaldi, Amanda Quick, Mary Jo Putney, Candace Camp, and Elizabeth Gaskell. When not reading, I watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Charmed, The Cosby Show, Sailor Moon, and as many Saturday morning cartoons as I could. Today, I’m obsessed with Doctor Who (Ten was my first Doctor), Psych, Pushing Daisies, and other quirky shows that make me think and laugh at the same time. I confused everyone who knew me as the art-English-history student in high school by getting my undergrad degree in Computer Software Engineering with a minor in English. I also have a Masters of Science in Interaction Design. Along the way, I published Haunting Miss Trentwood and picked up swing dancing, which exploded into lindy hop, charleston, balboa, and blues. It was in my masters program where I realized the power of the nerd. My nerd made me interesting and fun. My nerd gave me a passion and a voice to speak about it. My nerd gets excited with other nerds about their nerdy passions like dance technique, historical facts, the craft of fiction, food adventures, and more. My nerd wants to meet your nerd so we can nerd out together.
