A grieving widow. A house with secrets. And an invitation to a seance...

When Clara O'Hare's husband passed away, she felt her life was over. But when she moves into a new home to escape the memories, she discovers that the veil between life and death is very thin.

Desperate to find answers, she attends a seance in a remote country home surrounded by a colorful cast of strangers. But something sinister has decided to make itself known. It will be up to her and the dashing young medium, Wesley Lowenherz, to find out what the spirits of the manor are dying to tell them.

Laced with gothic romance and paranormal mystery, A Spirited Manor is book one in the O'Hare House Mystery penny dreadful series.

A Spirited Manor is a genre smorgasbord - a paranormal Victorian gothic cozy mystery with sweet romance.  And it works!...The mystery kept me on the edge of my seat, with twists and turns up until the very end. Clara manages to be a proper Victorian lady and a kickass heroine at the same time (always a plus) and the gothic atmosphere definitely gave me a chill or two. Absolutely worth a read!  -Bookish Creature

From the AuthorWhat is a "penny dreadful"?"Penny dreadfuls" were serialized books written during the Victorian era that cost only a penny.  They were usually published on cheap wood pulp paper (very much the "pulp fiction" of the day.)  They were not high literature like Charles Dickens (whose stories cost three pennies) and were looked down upon by the educated as being simply "dreadful."  Penny dreadfuls gleefully embraced the Victorian appetite for the sensational and other worldly.  Many featured stories with demons, the supernatural, ghosts, Egyptian curses, and other titillating, terrifying topics to send a joyful shiver up the gentle reader's spine.

There is a distinct hint of Armageddon in the air. According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (recorded, thankfully, in 1655, before she blew up her entire village and all its inhabitants, who had gathered to watch her burn), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, the Four Bikers of the Apocalypse are revving up their mighty hogs and hitting the road, and the world's last two remaining witch-finders are getting ready to fight the good fight, armed with awkwardly antiquated instructions and stick pins. Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. . . . Right. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan.

Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon -- each of whom has lived among Earth's mortals for many millennia and has grown rather fond of the lifestyle -- are not particularly looking forward to the coming Rapture. If Crowley and Aziraphale are going to stop it from happening, they've got to find and kill the Antichrist (which is a shame, as he's a really nice kid). There's just one glitch: someone seems to have misplaced him. . . .

First published in 1990, Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett's brilliantly dark and screamingly funny take on humankind's final judgment is back -- and just in time -- in a new hardcover edition (which includes an introduction by the authors, comments by each about the other, and answers to some still-burning questions about their wildly popular collaborative effort) that the devout and the damned alike will surely cherish until the end of all things.
