Welcome to Whispering Pines, built in 1907 by sea Captain Horatio Stratton. On the morning of October 31, 1916, the servants arrived early to discover Captain Stratton alone in the house, sitting calmly in his study and smoking his pipe. His wife and sister were missing, and what the maid found in the kitchen sent her screaming from the house. Almost one hundred years later, paranormal investigator Shawn Williams agrees to spend the night in the mysterious manor. She finds the stories about Whispering Pines almost as intriguing as her companion for the evening. Faith Charles, former reporter turned professional skeptic, isn't thrilled at the prospect of spending the night in a house where strange things have already begun to happen. Then again, to spend the night with Shawn, Faith might be willing to endure anything. Shawn and Faith begin their adventure together, possibly finding love along the way. The only thing standing in their way is the mystery of Whispering Pines.

Pleasant enough ghost-hunting romp which, for me, lacked a bit of focus. I felt that the focus should have been on the main ‘Whispering Pines’ story and this attempted to do too much. There was a bit too much moving around for my liking and Shawn’s solving of a 1950’s murder in the middle seemed to be just ‘thrown in for good measure’ As for Faith’s decision to just up and off, well that was just frankly bizarre!
Not of the class of Mavis’ “Tempus Fugit” or “Finding my Way” but a decent enough way to pass the time. With the double-stranded present love story and past love story elements it was reminiscent for me of Blayne Cooper’s “Cobb Island” and its sequel “Echoes in the Mist” (neither of which are currently available on Kindle, but which I believe you can read via the Academy of Bards website). Sorry Mavis, but Blayne did it better…!
