Sinister Summer

Sinister Summer Summary

A sexy professor.
A logical lawyer.
A determined ghost.
And a very real killer...
Welcome to Wicks Hollow: a cozy town near Lake Michigan filled with quaint houses, eccentric residents, and more than its share of ghosts, murders, and romance.

Diana Iverson needs a break--from her stressful job, from her philandering boyfriend, and from the rest of her fast-paced life. When she inherits her eccentric Aunt Jean's home on Wicks Lake, Diana takes a much-needed vacation in the cozy little town.

But when the lake house becomes the scene of multiple break-ins and other unsettling events, Diana begins to suspect Aunt Jean's death was not as innocent as it seems.

And then there's Ethan Murphy, the sexy college professor who lives next door… He appears to know a lot more about Aunt Jean than he should, and Diana doesn't trust him.

But most of all, there's Aunt Jean herself…who seems determined to communicate with Diana—from beyond the grave.

A ghost story romance set in a small town, featuring a cozy mystery about a ghost that just won't rest until justice is served. The perfect blend of romance, suspense, and ghosts.

Really enjoying this series.5 star

I mostly avoid scary films & books, Halloween haunted houses, etc., because I scare easily --and I admit, I had to pause several times while reading this book for a soothing cup of tea, I *really* enjoyed this book & the Wick’s Hollow setting & characters. Recommended!55
