Lana Longstreet is his star author … and the nom de plume of his estranged wife. Though he still loves her, how can he live in a home where ghosts attack him at every turn? Maybe the time has come to officially end any obligation to his wife’s Connecticut estate and be free from their torment.
Though she still loves her husband, Sylvia Fitzgibbons is tired of the charade of a marriage. She’d ask Henry for a divorce, but the children are planning an anniversary party in August, and she has a deadline for her Johnny Gallant suspense series in the same month. Then there are the decaying rose gardens, the only allure drawing Henry to the estate and her launch parties.
Henry agrees to help with the garden repair, but his hopes for a quick departure are smashed when Sylvia’s housekeeper is injured. Unable to resist her femme fatale wiles, Henry is trapped for the duration. But as the couple draw on each other for support, the malignant forces within the home become increasingly aggressive.
Something evil conspires against them that only Faith can conquer. Will they survive?
A Compelling story about an author writing under a sinister alter ego presence. Her husband and his failures complicate what once was a romantic marriage that devolved into a hostile relationship. Overseeing these flawed characters is an evil presence in a stately mansion. The author weaves a narrative that allows readers to see inside and bond with realistic characters. Ghosts of Trumball Mansion is as good as it gets in a book that is both well-written and full of mystery. It also draws the reader into the introspection of a Christian theme. This is the first book I have read from novelist Linda Wood Rondeau, but it will not be the last.
The Ghosts of Trumball Mansion is filled with suspense, mystery, and a struggle for love. The author had me guessing from page one to the end about who was doing what and how it would all end. The characters were true to themselves and needed a fresh touch from God, but the spiritual warfare hinders the path. I'll leave that to the readers to discover.
