The Ghosts of Ravencrest #6: Dead Girls

Restless Spirits

The spirits of Ravencrest are restless and governess Belinda Moorland finds herself in a maze of ever-growing mystery and danger as she uncovers the shocking secrets of her new home. With the help of butler Grant Phister, she realizes the three blood-drenched nuns who patrol the east wing, the little girl in red, and the handsome night visitor aren’t the only spirits walking the halls of Ravencrest. There is the White Violet, a silent movie actress, and the Bride of Ravencrest, both mad, both lurking. And then there is the ghost haunting the dark and eerie indoor pool …

Sometimes the Living are More Dangerous than the Dead…

And the dead aren’t the only ones who have their eyes on Belinda. As her former roommate, Randi Tucker, pays a perilous surprise visit, the house administrator, Mrs. Heller, and limo driver, Walter Hardwicke, are making dangerous plans … plans that will have harrowing consequences for Belinda.

Darkness is Gathering

As the mansion’s terrifying secrets unravel, Belinda becomes convinced that she’s stepped into a world where reality has no rules. Even as she and her employer, the handsome and mysterious Eric Manning grow closer, darkness is gathering … on both sides of the Veil.

Dare to Cross the Threshold…

Ravencrest Manor is the most beautiful thing new governess, Belinda Moorland, has ever seen, but as she learns more about its tangled past of romance and terror, she realizes that beauty has a dark side.

But Belinda soon realizes that the living who dwell in Ravencrest have nothing on the other inhabitants – the ones who walk the darkened halls by night… the ones who enter her dreams… the ones who are watching… and waiting…

When the Blue Lady Walks…

Since 1887, Cliffhouse Lodge has been famous for its luxurious accommodations, fine dining… and its ghosts. Overlooking Blue Lady Lake, nestled among tall pines, Cliffhouse has just been renovated by its owners, Teddy and Adam Bellamy, and their daughter, Sara.

Cliffhouse has not always been a place of rest and respite, though. Over the years it has served many vices, from rum-running to prostitution – and although the cat houses have been replaced by a miniature golf course and carousel, Cliffhouse retains its dark history; darkest during the Roaring Twenties, when a serial killer called the Bodice Ripper terrorized the town, and a phantom, the Blue Lady, was said to walk when murder was imminent.

 

Death Walks With Her…

Now, there’s a new killer on the loose, and the Blue Lady sightings have returned. The Bellamys are losing maids, and guests are being tormented by disembodied whispers, wet phantom footprints, and the blood-chilling shrieks of mad laughter that echo through the halls of Cliffhouse in the dead of night.

The little mountain town of Cliffside is the perfect hunting ground for a serial killer… and the Blue Lady. Police Chief Jackson Ballou has bodies piling up, and between the murders and the mysteries, he can hardly pursue his romance with Polly Owen. And Sara Bellamy may lose her true love before they even have their first kiss.

The Cliffhouse Haunting will be available this March!

What Walks the Halls of Ravencrest?

Belinda Moorland is locked in a nightmare where reality and the supernatural collide.

And what about the spectral little girl from another era? Is she Belinda’s friend, or just another monster?

In Episode 5 of The Ghosts of Ravencrest, the tension mounts as the territories of the living and the dead blur together to create a miasma of terror and dread.

The Ghosts of Ravencrest


Darkness Never Dies…

Ravencrest Manor has always been part of the family. The ancestral home of the Mannings, Ravencrest’s walls have been witness to generations of unimaginable scandal, horror, and depravity. Imported stone by stone from England to northern California over a thirty-year period in the 1800s, the manor now houses widower Eric Manning, his children, and his staff. Ravencrest stands alone, holding its memories and ghosts close to its dark heart, casting long, black shadows across its grand lawns, through the surrounding forests, and over the picturesque town of Devilswood below.

Dare to Cross the Threshold…

Ravencrest Manor is the most beautiful thing new governess, Belinda Moorland, has ever seen, but as she learns more about its tangled past of romance and terror, she realizes that beauty has a dark side. Ravencrest is built on secrets, and its inhabitants seem to be keeping plenty of their own – from the handsome English butler, Grant Phister, to the power-mad administrator, Mrs. Heller, to Eric Manning himself, who watches her with dark, fathomless eyes. But Belinda soon realizes that the living who dwell in Ravencrest have nothing on the other inhabitants – the ones who walk the darkened halls by night… the ones who enter her dreams… the ones who are watching… and waiting…

Home is Where the Horror is…

Welcome to Ravencrest, magnificent by day, terrifying by night.
Welcome to Ravencrest, home of sordid secrets and ghastly scandals from the past.
Welcome to Ravencrest, where there is no line between the living and the dead.
