Talented Bloggers Part I

This post is dedicated to our blogging friend Crystal Jigsaw who wrote a book under her real name Kathryn Brown. I’m looking forward to reading it. I was the lucky winner of one of her books, a delightful story about the Adventures at Aaron Loch Farm so I know she is a good storyteller. Kathryn’s new book is slightly different, it’s a paranormal romance novel called Discovery at Rosehill and is already attracting keen readers.

"Finding your dream home is difficult enough, but what if you found it and then discovered it was haunted? Medium Camilla Armstrong is led to the beautiful Rosehill country estate after communication with her deceased grandmother. On first inspection she senses tranquility within the house; the gentle atmosphere of a Georgian manor that is crying out for new life. But when she moves in, Camilla discovers the house contains a dark secret, one which is to change her life forever.

When The Reverend Marcus Calloway introduces himself to her, a friendship develops and Camilla realises she could at last have found her true love. But all is not what it seems when further spirit contact confirms that Marcus harbours a guilty secret. Spirit communication, manifestations and an eerie atmosphere all add to Camilla’s new surroundings as she tries hard to decipher mixed messages and a life she never knew existed. An open mind is all she asks for as her relationship with Marcus grows and the secrets of Rosehill are discovered with help from her relatives of a world beyond our own.

Discovery at Rosehill is the story of a medium, her life connected to the spirit world and her encounter with a village Reverend."

Intriguing or what?
