“I’m dangerously close to being thoughtful right now. At least it doesn’t require me to do much of anything.”

This tickled my funny bone. LOL

Read on if you want to know more.

Synopsis

An inheritance with a twist… A wanderer and confirmed loner, Francine Pond is not thrilled to inherit her great-aunt True’s sprawling mansion. She’s even less pleased to learn she is required to solve a mystery involving a series of clues contained in True’s will. And she only has seven days to complete the task. Complicated by life-sized games, ghosts, and a cast of improbable tenants… Pond is not alone in this house of oddities. In addition to a teenaged storyteller and an enigmatic chimney sweep, she is joined by Ferdinand, a mysterious man who wants to help her in her mission for reasons known only to himself and his beloved dog. Unsure who to trust… Between a rogue circus performer and her elephant, a vengeful ringmaster, meddling neighbors, and a bewildering series of quests, Pond begins to doubt if she’ll ever solve the twisted-and sometimes deadly-puzzles and regain her freedom. But is there anywhere to go if the apocalypse really has already come to Baltimore? Or will she have to stay, no matter the cost, to save herself and the misfits who might have become her friends?

  1. I do like books that have an inheritance and that teaser is intriguing to say the least!

    • fuonlyknew says:

      It’s an interesting scene I chose from. I’m hoping this all comes together as a lot appears to be going on at the same time.

  2. I was drawn in by the book cover, and tempted further by the excerpt and the cast of quirky characters. Thanks for sharing, and here’s mine: “IT HAPPENS ALL THE TIME”

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I can’t wait to meet the cast for this story. They sure sound odd and fun. And I can’t resist a book with a creepy house on the cover. LOL

  3. I am intrigued. The house on the cover look similar to a house in our historic district.

  4. Ha ha, sounds like a good one! :)

  6. Covers with houses and stories with mysteries always catch my eye.

      Me too, Sherry. Big old houses always look creepy to me though, even when they’re well maintained. So much history in them.
