The Boneyard by Loretta C. Rogers is a Spring Break Bookapalooza pick #paranormalmystery #paranormal #giveaway



Title: The Boneyard

 

Author: Loretta C. Rogers

 

Genre: Paranormal Mystery

 

Book Blurb:

 

Part Cherokee, and with empathic abilities, Dr. Tullah Holliday isn’t your average small-town veterinarian.

 

When her Black Lab brings her a skeletal human hand, she immediately notifies her father, Sheriff Henry Holliday. The dog leads them to the reputedly haunted swamp nearby, where they discover eleven shallow graves with remains of young women reported missing over the past decade. For Tullah, a great barred owl becomes a messenger for these dead souls who reach out pleading for her to find their murderer.

 

The heir to the swamp asks Tullah to help break the swamp’s hundred-year-old curse, little realizing the dangers she must face—poisonous snakes, wild dogs, and a terrifying monster. Only by listening to the voices in the wind and obeying the owl’s indications can she put the past to rest and avoid becoming the next victim.

 

Excerpt:

 

“This place gives me the creeps,” grandmother’s voice sounded strained. “Tullah, you’re white as a sheet.”

 

Dad adjusted the .45 on his hip as if expecting trouble. I felt as if someone was walking on my grave without me being in it. Part of me wanted to turn around, get on my horse and race away from this place. The other part was held by a voice inside my head saying I’m here. We’re all here. Find us. Please find us.

 

I could feel that the voice was in a place—a deep dark place. I felt it in me, and it clawed its way up my spine. I knew it would come out my mouth like a regurgitation of emotion if I let it.

 

I inhaled. I would never get used to these surprised visits of the mind that iced my blood and burdened my heart. I never had them when my mother was alive. Had she somehow in death gifted me with this curse?

 

I stood there, listening to the hum of mosquitoes and my dog’s whines, and staring into the dark marsh until I became aware of the welling of tears in my eyes. I gripped his arms. “Dad, this is a place of death.”

If money were no object, where would you go for a Spring Break vacation and why?

 

If money were no object, I would spend my Spring Break vacation on an American riverboat cruise down the Columbia and Snake Rivers.

And all the while, I would be gathering ideas for my next novels.
