When Danielle Boatman inherits Marlow House, she dreams of turning it into a seaside bed and breakfast. Since she’s never visited the property, Danielle’s not sure what awaits her in Oregon. She certainly doesn’t expect to find one of the house’s previous owners still in residence. After all, the man has been dead for almost ninety years—shouldn’t he have moved on by now?
Charming Walt Marlow convinces Danielle the only way he can move on is if she solves the mystery of his death. Danielle soon discovers her real problems may come from the living—those who have their sights on Marlow House’s other secrets.

          

Here is what I thought

Danielle inherited an old house and thought she would check it out and maybe open up a Bed and Breakfast if it was in good condition. She wasn’t expecting to find a centuries old ghost in the place. Danielle has been able to see ghost since she was young but because nobody believed her and thought she was weird she learned to keep it to herself.

Walt is not keen on having someone in his house and didn’t realize he was dead till she pointed out some things to him. He doesn’t seem to want to leave either. What he does want is for her to find out who killed him because one thing he is sure of is that he didn’t commit suicide like the papers say.

It also seems that there is another mystery surrounding the house and it is bringing a few greedy ones to her home. When she finds out what is going on she wants Walt to tell her where the item is but he doesn’t want too. Her friend Lisa is afraid that they might not be able to open the B&B if it brings in others like the two that broke in.

There is something off about their nice looking neighbor and Lisa really likes him so Danielle hopes he is not another greedy one looking for the item.

I enjoyed Haunting Danielle it was a fun story. Danielle is a good character as well as Lisa, but my favorite is Walt. I love his feistiness in not wanting to have them in his house and then his stubborness when it came to the item. I am really curious to see how this series will progress and have the next couple to listen too soon.

Author Bio

For me, daydreaming came before writing. As a child, I was perfectly content to while away a lazy Saturday afternoon making up stories in my head. My imagination took me on countless adventures.  Instead of losing myself in a book, I created my own stories.

In those early days, I preferred daydreams to reading books. In spite of that, I had a few favorites: Nancy DrewThe Boxcar ChildrenA Wrinkle in TimeThe Pink Motel and To Kill a Mockingbird.

I started writing stories in grade school, discovered my love of reading in junior high, and wrote my first book in high school.

Today I write mature fiction under my nom de plume, Anna J. McIntyre. Under my real name, I write non-fiction and g-rated fiction.

My newest series—Haunting Danielle—is a cozy mystery ghost story. Currently there are seven books in the series, with an eighth to be released April 30, 2016.

I live with my husband Don, our Aussie Lady and Spooky the Halloween Cat, in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. This June we celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. We have four wonderful children (counting our son-in-law and daughter-in-law) and two beautiful grandchildren.
