WWW - The Ghost at the B&B by Kendricks/France

June 17, 2017

I'm participating today in the Weekend Writing Warriors blog hop! WWW is a weekly blog hop where authors post eight to ten sentences from a published work or a work in progress. Blog posts are to go live between noon Saturday and 9:00 AM Sunday. It's a great way to meet new authors and expand networks. Be sure to visit the WEWRIWA page to check out all the Weekend Writing Warriors blogs. Click here to go to the home page.  It's good stuff. Don't miss out.

This week I have a few sentences from a mixed release. By that I mean Chris and I  got the story started with The Ghost Wore Denim and The Ghost Makes Three. We were unable to release the final book due to the closing of Amber Quill Press. Now, finally, the story is complete. The Ghost at the B&B is all three books in one special volume. (At a single book price because we know so many of you already have the first two stories.) And yes, Robin is a friendly ghost. Very friendly.

Here is a short excerpt you won't find anywhere else, special for this week's Weekend Writing Warriors.


Colin licked his lips and I had the flashing sensation of his tongue on my skin. “Have dinner with me Sunday night and maybe I’ll tell you.”

I must have looked stupid because I had not seen that coming.

He chuckled softly and the low, amused sound rippled through me like a symphony. “Sorry if I caught you off-guard. So, will you?”

I recovered my wits enough to flirt with him. “I don’t know if I’ll be safe with a big, burly boy like you.”

Colin grinned. “I’m a cop. If I give you any trouble, you can always borrow my handcuffs.”


Michael Brooks’ life took an unexpected direction when he found the Taylor Mansion, a two-story Colonial perfect for a Bed & Breakfast. An untenured college professor, he’s suddenly also a successful entrepreneur. And best of all, he met sexy deputy Colin Jefferson and they hit it off in a big way. He’s even made friends with the mansion’s resident ghost. 

Deputy Colin Jefferson is a hometown boy who made good. As a member of the local police force, he serves the community he loves. He’s heard tales about the Taylor Mansion ghost all his life. Now he’s living there with Michael and knows the stories are true. There’s a ghost with a penchant for voyeurism lurking in his bedroom.
How the ghost came to live in at the B&B is a mystery Michael and Colin need to solve. It’s the only way for their resident spirit to get justice and to find eternal rest. Until they can unearth the murderer, the friendly ghost at the bed and breakfast is a permanent guest.

Okay, I'm convinced: I'm not going to stay at any more Bed and Breakfasts if they're haunted.
