The Restorer Discussion #6...

I found the imagery and the epitaphs from the cemetery headstones really interesting. What did you think? Could you imagine spending your life working in cemeteries? Has anyone ever been to Charleston? What about the 57 angels and the link to Amelia's house? Thoughts....

The Restorer Discussion #4

Let's talk about John Devlin. What did you think about his story and the chemistry between him and Amelia? What did you make of their energy exchange? What about his ghosts...is he the one keeping them tied to him or are they doing it? At times, he seems very aware of what is happening....do you think he is? What about his past with Emerson, the Order of the Coffin and the Claw, and the Paranormal society that he never revealed?

The Restorer Discussion #2...

When Amelia started seeing the ghosts, her father taught her several rules for her life...
1. Never acknowledge the dead.
2. Never stray too far from hallowed ground.
3. Keep your distance from those who are haunted. 
4. Never, ever tempt fate.

What did you think about the fact Amelia starts breaking these rules?

Our March Book-- The Restorer

The Restorer by Amanda Stevens

Story Overview:
Never acknowledge the dead.
Never stray far from hallowed ground.
Never get close to the haunted.
Never, ever tempt fate.
My name is Amelia Gray. I'm a cemetery restorer who sees ghosts. In order to protect myself from the parasitic nature of the dead, I've always held fast to these rules passed down from my father…until now.
Detective John Devlin needs my help to find a killer, but he is haunted by ghosts who shadow his every move. To warn him would be to invite them into my life. I've vowed to keep my distance, but the pull of his magnetism grows ever stronger even as the headstone symbols lead me closer to truth and to the gossamer veil that separates this world from the next.

Chit-chat about the book will begin March 15th!!!
