Book Spotlight: The Ghosts of Aquinnah by Julie Flanders

Before I spotlight Julie’s book, I wanted to share something. This morning I received a message on Goodreads from one of my friends. Mollydee was so excited to tell me that she saw an interview of Marionette on Blog Critics. I was extremely touched that she took the time out of her day to send me such a nice message about it. Then she posted the review on her blog. Here’s the review of Marionette. It’s always nice to wake up to a wonderful review.

Today I’m excited to have Julie stop by. Due to a slight mishap, I’ve had to postpone her interview. Instead I’m spotlighting her novel and will post the interview as soon as possible. Julie and I met via our blogs a few months and she’s such a delightful person. When I asked for bloggers to help me promote Marionette she kindly volunteered her blog. And since we both released books recently we decided to interview each other.  Her book, The Ghosts of Aquinnah, sounds amazing and it’s the first book on my 2014 review schedule. I can’t wait! Here’s the blurb for her book. And as soon as I can, I’ll post my interview with her. Julie please accept my apology for the minor snafu.


Julie coverA brilliant flash of light transcends through time.

Another freezes a cloaked figure within a frame of salty mist as waves crash against a rocky shore. Her harrowing expression shadows the beacon to a pinprick.

By the next blaze, she is gone. Only the lighthouse remains.

Hannah’s eyes blink in step with each heartbeat. Images of her deceased parents and Martha’s Vineyard explode like firecrackers inside her mind.

She shakes her head.

For weeks this eerie woman dressed in nineteenth century garb has been haunting my webcam, but tonight she stared into my soul.

Why? …

Who is she? …

Casting aside months of research on historic lighthouses, Hannah drives to the coast and boards a ferry.

What is the strange connection she has to this mysterious woman suspended in time?

Hannah finds out.

But, it’s not at all what she expects…

Hannah unravels a century old murder.
