Synopsis

Jekyll Island is known for its ghosts as well as its history, but now the two are about to take Taryn Magill on a wild ride she’ll never forget!

When your camera can see the past, it's a history lover's dream! But sometimes the past should stay buried. The hauntings and ghosts are only the beginning of what Taryn sees!

Jekyll Island: celebrated for its historic hotel, alligators, beaches, wild beauty, a history that stretches back nearly 5 centuries, and its spirits…When artist Taryn Magill is hired to paint two of the hotel’s historic cottages she’s excited at the chance to spend the summer on one of the Atlantic’s most mysterious islands.  The job isn't quite what she expected, however.

While working with one of the haunted houses, a sinister presence stalks Taryn and grasps her within its ominous shadows. The past has never been more alive. It follows her, taunts her, and threatens her sanity and very life.

A fire consumed most of the hotel more than 100 years ago. The culprit was hanged for his crime, as well as for the murder of his young wife, Rachel. Is it Rachel’s ghost back for vengeance or is it something more ominous that clings to the island and claws its way into Taryn’s camera and dreams?

One thing is for sure–if she makes it out of THIS place alive, Taryn will never be the same!

**Enjoy "Taryn's" original photography–images of Jekyll Island and the surrounding area before the start of each chapter!**

Book 5 in the Taryn’s Camera series. In the style of Shirley Jackson, Susan Hill, Heather Graham, and early Stephen King, Taryn’s Camera is a paranormal historical mystery and haunted house series for ghost story lovers and history buffs about a woman who can see the past through her camera.  A little gothic, a little supernatural suspense, a little horror-and a whole lot of fun!

 

About Rebecca Patrick-Howard

Rebecca Patrick-Howard's real biography isn't nearly as interesting as the one she's made up in her head so she'll leave you with that one: At the age of 3, her family sold her to a band of traveling gypsies. Forced to become a bareback rider in the circus, she spent her younger years traveling the country, living out of suitcases and selling macrame keychains on the side. At the age of 16 she became a professional yodeler but, after winning the international yodeling competition in Switzerland at 19, decided to retire at the height of her career. Now, she and her husband (an organic rutabaga farmer from Wales) live in an isolated cabin in eastern Kentucky where they play with a local mariachi band every Friday night, are involved with a murder mystery dinner theater club, and enjoy making origami owls.
