It might be a murder from decades ago, but it still has its claws in the present…and someone seems determined to drag Anna into it.
It’s way too soon to be returning to a haunted mansion, and Anna’s favorite cowboy ghost does his best to talk her out of it. But the opportunity to pick from the beautiful antiques left to her in a Crocker resident’s will is just too tempting for Anna and Pratt to pass up. So they’re going in…
They’re prepared to deal with a few cold spots. Maybe the occasional flickering light. But what Anna and the boys weren’t counting on was bumping up against the ghost of Josiah Bumgartner, a contemporary of Joss’ from the 1800s. And when Josiah claims the old woman who lived in the house hid his bones around the place, Anna agrees to help him find them. But something much darker is at work there. And, unfortunately for our happy little gang of antique hunters…Anna seems to have unwittingly stepped right into the middle of it.
A Different Kind of Mystery
A couple of years ago, when I wrote Book 1 of my Yesterday’s Paranormal Mysteries, I was really excited. The series is different from any other mystery series I’ve seen. It’s a unique mix of historical, paranormal mysteries with a touch of sweet romance thrown in. A truly potent mix that all but promises you’ll be captivated from beginning to end.
The heroine of this series, Anna Yesterday, owns Yesterday’s Antiques. Located in an old part of a small, fictional town called Crocker, Indiana, the shop was actually built on a spot of land that once held a Saloon. On that very spot, a cowboy from America’s history, Josselin Zebediah, died in a gunfight. Also, on that same spot, a saloon girl named Bess breathed her last breath doing whatever saloon girls do.
Both spirits are now tied to the shop through their anchoring objects. In Joss’ case that would be his gun belt, unearthed during an excavation project in the area behind the shop. In Bess’ case…well…Anna hasn’t found her anchoring object yet. But she’s beginning to suspect the ghost is there just to annoy everyone else in the building.
Anna and her two spiritual companions were getting along just fine before Pratt Davies walked into the store one day, looking for a job. Leery of the ex-cop’s effect on Anna, Joss would much rather Pratt turned right around and went back where he came from. But Pratt has no intention of going anywhere. He likes Crocker, antiques, and Anna, not necessarily in that order. More importantly, he never wants to return to his old job, which ended the career of one good cop and nearly cost Pratt and his partner their lives. It was a terrifying experience, made more horrifying by its ties to the ether, and he’s trying hard to put it far behind him. Pratt came to Crocker thinking he’d start over…immerse himself in normality, far from murders and spiritual shenanigans.
Boy was he about to be surprised!
With each book you get to solve not one but two murders. One from the past and one from the present. Sometimes the two murders are connected, and sometimes they aren’t. But antiques are almost always involved. I love the idea of “things” from our past carrying information and emotions into our present. If objects truly can absorb energy from their surroundings, then why couldn’t they hold the secrets to past events, or at least leave a trail of clues for us to follow?
This is the premise behind my Yesterday’s Paranormal Mysteries. If you think it sounds intriguing, I hope you’ll enter Anna’s world with me. You never know what Anna’s going to dig up next, but I can promise the adventure will be like nothing you’ve ever experienced before.
