I can't believe how quickly time is moving on, lately. It's taking far too long to get my house ready to sell, so I can move.

Daniel’s temporarily stepped into the shoes of his murdered cousin, former Sheriff Mac Allen. Before it's over, of course, he's going to need her services—both investigative and psychic.

But, as Promise sets a trap for the spirit, a frightening thunder snow moves across Perry County and the hunted becomes the hunter, exposing just how vulnerable Susan is, and how wicked a lost soul can be.


The FOURTH entry in this supernatural cozy series will raise goosebumps all around.



A Child's Garden of Verses

Originally published in 1885, A Child's Garden of Verses has served as a wonderful introduction to poetry for each new generation. Stevenson's beloved poems celebrate childhood in all its complexity and joy, from the sunny pleasures of "At the Seaside," to the imaginative musings of "Foreign Lands" to the playful, ever-popular "My Shadow." Of the many available editions, Gyo Fujikawa's is one of the sweetest and most personal. Illustrated in 1957, it was her very first book-and she evokes a simpler, more innocent time that should profoundly appeal to today's audiences. It is a gift that every child will treasure.
