THE STORIES OF THE PAST ARE NEVER TRULY LOST. SOMETIMES THEY JUST NEED A LITTLE HELP TO BE FOUND.
Nicola Price has always been aware of the ghosts which inhabit the Aldergate Tavern and Inn. The historic pub she runs with her grandmother on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile in Scotland has seen centuries of lives come and go, and it’s had more than its fair share of bloody conflict. So a resident ghost or two is only natural. But with the arrival of best-selling author Mike Daggerty at the Aldergate, suddenly Nicola begins seeing spirits not just at the pub, but everywhere. In fact, they won’t leave her alone.
Mike “Daggs” Daggerty has made a career of travelling the British Isles in search of stories of hauntings, ghosts and paranormal activity. His published works have received multiple awards, made multiple best-seller lists around the world, and created an enthusiastic fan base. But Daggs is losing his lust for the one thing he has always loved—storytelling. His search for history has compelled him for as long as he can remember, but lately he’s begun to feel as though he is never going to find what he is looking for… whatever that may be.
When Daggs meets Nicola, there is something about her that inexplicably rekindles his desire to write. When she’s around, things begin to happen and stories begin to surface. It’s almost as if she is his lucky charm. What tales do the ghosts of the Aldergate have to share, and how can Nicola help Daggs find the story that he’s been searching for all his life? After all, we each have a part to play in the stories that make up our greater human existence.

THE HANLEYS BOOK 2
Caroline Hanley-Bryant is the woman every woman wants to be. She has the perfect body, the perfect face, the perfect husband, the perfect life… on the surface, at least. Beneath it, however, her marriage is violent, and she is a shell of the youthful, hopeful girl she once was.
After a particularly brutal attack, Caroline flees with her thirteen-year-old daughter to Arborwood, the Northern Ontario town where her brother, Jake Hanley, lives with his new wife. There, Caroline learns that family means so much more than blood, and community can be one’s salvation. In Arborwood, she learns what love can really look like when she meets Eric Blondell, the ruggedly handsome head chef at the Arborwood Inn. He is nothing like the men Caroline has known in the past, and she must decide if she will trust her heart to love once more.
But the past is relentless. When Caroline’s husband comes after her, she will have a choice to make—one which she just might risk everything for…
