While recovering from the recent loss of his parents, Daniel Donnelly receives a phone call from his estranged aunt, who turns over control of the family fortune and estate, Timber Manor. Though his father seemed guarded about the past, Daniel’s need for family and curiosity compel him to visit.
Located in a secluded area of the Northwest, Timber Manor has grown silent over the years. Her halls sit empty and a thin layer of dust adorns the sheet-covered furniture. When Daniel arrives to begin repairs, strange things happen. Nightmares haunt his dreams. Memories not his own disturb his waking hours. Alive with the tragedies of the past, Timber Manor threatens to tear Daniel apart.
Sherriff Hale Davis grew up working on the manor grounds. Seeing Daniel struggle, he vows protect the young man who captured his heart, and help him solve the mystery behind the haunting and confront the past—not only to save Daniel’s life, but to save his family, whose very souls hang in the balance.
I believe this was my first book by this author, if not it’s been a long time.
Lots of moving parts to this story, but it’s not complicated. Applauses to the author for that.
Okay, I’m going to get my two negatives out of the way. And again, these are mine. I’m just not a fan of chapters being broke up by people/names. And two, these inner voices, italics, I get here and there, talking to yourself, hell I talk to myself. But when it rules the story. It’s too much for me.
Okay I’m done.
What I great tale, several different things, old family legend, tragedy, curse, evil lurking behind the door, and wolves trying to save the day. Oh and a super-hot sheriff.
Daniel, a college student has his life turned upside down in more ways than one. With several events that happen. His aunt Carol, whom he knows little about, summons him to the family estate. And this is where his life truly begins.
I completely enjoyed how all these characters worked together, from Daniel and Hale, Carol, Anita and everyone else. Made the story just flow.
And of course, the HEA at the end. Perfect.
