A haunted house, a trunk and a date with destiny.
Author: Sarah J. McNeal
Genre: Mainstream Romance
Lola Barton’s life has been chaotic and uncertain. When she inherits a rundown plantation, she believes her life has finally taken a positive turn. But, when she finds a mysterious trunk in the attic, it takes her into the past and to a man with dark secrets—and she’s married to him.
Joe Wilding carries his shame in his pocket in the form of a harmonica. The woman he thought he married to save her life, is beginning to break through his stoic wall and find the secret he hides. Loving her could be his ruin. Only time can tell.
Harmonica music floated down from the attic—the last place in this tumble down wreck of a house Lola Barton wanted to go. Had someone or something taken up residence there? Lola made her way up the darkened attic stairs measuring each step as the ancient boards creaked in protest under her feet. Her flashlight beamed a narrow circle of light illuminating the cobweb-covered door at the top of the landing. Her heart raced and pulsed in her ears. Hands trembled with the surge of adrenaline as she pressed forward. She ignored her inner voice that warned, “Don’t go!”
Her cynical mind told her the rumors that Misty Oaks Plantation had ghosts weren’t true. The tales of murder and betrayal had to be the overactive imagination of the local townspeople. A homeless vagrant had to be the most logical explanation for the disturbance.
Once she gained the landing, she blew the cobwebs from the door and leaned her ear against it to listen for any movement on the other side. Wisps of harmonica music lifted in the air. Perhaps someone left a harmonica lying around and the wind blew hard enough through the cracks in the walls to make it sound as though someone played the instrument. Just the wind. No ghost.
With her courage bolstered by her logical conclusion, she grabbed the doorknob and turned it.
Harmonica Joe’s Reluctant Bride is also part of a 5 novel set from 5 western writers for the crazy price of 99cents. I’m not kidding—99 cents for A Cowboy’s Brand
