The Woman In Crimson
by Kathryn Meyer Griffith
Adrian and Caroline Cole are living their dream. They bought the Civil War era house, Willowwind, and turned it into a cozy bed and breakfast. Things couldn’t be better.
Until…Something stars attacking the guests. Something from the old cemetary that abuts the grounds. The woman in crimson, Lilith, a vampire who believes Adrian is her long lost lover.
What was a dream come true turns into a nightmare as guests start dying. Forced to close the inn, Caroline has to believe Adrian. Has to be Lilith is real. And they have to join forces with a neighbor and a medium to rid them selves of her deadly presence, or lose everything, including their lives.
Having read many of Kathryn’s books, I knew I’d be in for a terrific read. The atmosphere starts out light and steadily grows darker. People start to die. Lilith grows hungrier, angrier.
I couldn’t help but feel bad for Adrian and Caroline. They’re living their dream. It all goes south. And a vampire,ghost will not stop until she gets what she wants.
In the beginning, I kind of felt sorry for Lilith. She had a sad story. But when she’s awakened again, she’s no longer human, and loses that side of herself. Growing darker and more malevolent. When she started killing off people to feed, I lost all sympathy. I really liked some of her victims.
I also felt sorry for Adrian. Once he came under attack from Lilith, he tried hard to convince his wife that she was real. But Caroline is a see it to believe it kind of gal and it took some horrific events to turn her around.
Throw in the grumpy farmer trying to shake loose from his mother’s apron strings, and a renowned medium that looks like a bag lady, and this story takes hold of you.
As usual, the author spares no character. You never know who will make it to the end. And she adds little twists to keep your emotions shifting about those characters.
She also gives you a truly nasty villain. One you feel torn about. That is, until she goes off the deep end and does some very nasty deeds. In the end, I wanted Lilith dead, for good this time.
When I was a teenager, I used to spend my summer vacations exploring abandoned house with my best friend and her father. I never ran into any ghost, but some of those houses had a disturbing vibe to them. Who knows what might have been lurking, watching. I felt that chill when reading this book.
Looking for a scary good haunted house story. Grab a copy of this book. You’ll get everything you’re looking for and then some. I’d love to know what you think of the ending.
Sometimes love lasts forever…but maybe it shouldn’t. Willowwind, a beautiful Civil War era bed and breakfast, is run by a loving couple, Adrian and Caroline Stone, but it’s also haunted by a long-dead Civil War era vampiress, Lilith, who believes the man, Adrian, is her reincarnated soldier/lover and will do anything to have him, body-heart-and soul, for her own again, no matter how many she must kill. But Adrian’s wife, Caroline, along with the help of the ghost of her dead father, will do anything to make sure that doesn’t happen.
About Author Kathryn Meyer Griffith…
Since childhood I’ve been an artist and worked as a graphic designer in the corporate world and for newspapers for twenty-three years before I quit to write full time. But I’d already begun writing novels at 21, over forty-four years ago now, and have had twenty-two (ten romantic horror, two horror novels, two romantic SF horror, one romantic suspense, one romantic time travel, one historical romance, two thrillers, and four murder mysteries) previous novels, two novellas and twelve short stories published from Zebra Books, Leisure Books, Avalon Books, The Wild Rose Press, Damnation Books/Eternal Press; and I’ve self-published my last ten novels with Amazon Kindle Direct and my Dinosaur Lake novels and Spookie Town Mysteries (Scraps of Paper, All Things Slip Away and Ghosts Beneath Us) are my best-sellers.
I’ve been married to Russell for thirty-seven years; have a son and two grandchildren and I live in a small quaint town in Illinois, which is right across the JB Bridge from St. Louis, Mo. We have a quirky cat, Sasha, and the three of us live happily in an old house in the heart of town. Though I’ve been an artist, and a folk/classic rock singer in my youth with my brother Jim, writing has always been my greatest passion, my butterfly stage, and I’ll probably write stories until the day I die…or until my memory goes.
