Jocelyn gets lost her way to her friends' empty cottage for a vacation, in order to forget about a relationship turned sour. When a very bright light shines in her eyes and she runs off the road into a deep rut. Once she gets the car out of the rut there doesn't seem to be any damage, but before she can even drive away car runs out of control down a hill and crashes into a tree. Leaving the car totaled and Jocelyn in the middle of the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania walking in a rainstorm to find shelter.
Jocelyn is soaked to the bone, cold and afraid when she sees a house, next to a cemetery. Whose occupants she hopes will give her a dry place to rest and a telephone to use. Unfortunately for Jocelyn the man whom answered the door wasn't very accommodating. As a matter of fact he was rude and his attitude was accusatory as if he knew that Jocelyn was lying and actually was there for another reason. He eventually allowed Jocelyn in, but told her there was no phone. Dan allowed her to take a bath and spend the night, but he locked her in her room for the night.
During the night Jocelyn sees a light on in a mausoleum, which of course she thinks is strange. Who would have a light in a mausoleum? Jocelyn is also woken up in the middle of the night by a bright light that she follows out the door, which somehow has become unlocked. She follows the light downstairs to the fireplace. By morning she dismisses the light as a figment of her imagination.
Jocelyn finally finds out the name of the man who lives in the house while he is on his way to take her back to town. Jocelyn and Dan meet up with Velma Lyman who is the spaced out sister to Perry Lyman a local drug runner and dealer. Velma is also the widow to Ned who was supposed to have died in a car accident, but Dan his cousin whom also is an officer of the law for the Drug and Tobacco enforcement, thinks it was actually murder.
Without giving anymore of the story away let me say I enjoyed this book quite a bit. I would give it four stars. I would recommend this to a variety of people. Anyone liking romance, mysteries and paranormals should find this book interesting.
