Title: WALK-INS WELCOME

 

Author: Sue C Dugan

 

Genre: Paranormal Romance

 

Book Blurb:


What would a person who died in a horrific accident do if they wanted another chance to live and be with the love of their life? That exact thing has happened to Robert Larkin. After he dies, he asks 19-year-old HB Comstock to switch souls with him so he can be with his wife and child. They do. Henry wakes up from a coma as a different person. The doctors describe his new persona as head trauma and a concussion. He knows he’s vastly different than he was before the accident. 

 

His mother enrolls him in adult education to finish his GED. HB meets Robert’s widow, thirty-four-year-old Alison Larkin when he starts adult education. Alison likes the engaging nineteen-year-old HB Comstock and discovers he’s brilliant. As Alison learns more about HB and his similarities with Rob, her interest in him grows.


HB finally convinces Alison he has the soul of her dead husband, Rob. They decide to get married. After the ceremony, they are headed out of town to start their new life together in Indiana when they are in an accident. Now Rob will get his surprise—he’s not the only one who can switch souls.

 

Excerpt:


He noisily let out his breath. “I’ve been seeing a counselor, and he told me about one of his patients, Ashton.” HB paused and rearranged his thoughts. “I talked to Ashton, who told me he had tried to kill himself but failed.”


“Oh, no!” Alison cried. “Please don’t tell me you want to kill yourself!” She leaned forward and tried to grasp his hand. 


“No, I want to live again!” He let her touch his fingers before pulling back. Although contemplating suicide might be easier than telling Alison he was her dead husband—Robert.


“Anyway,” HB swallowed, “Ashton told me about soul walk-ins.”


“What did you say?” Alison asked, alarm creasing her brow. “Wait!” She jumped up and hurried down the hallway while he waited. He moved his forefinger over his thumb, wondering what would make her leave like that.


She returned with a small book, sat, and clutched it to her chest as if protecting it. Then slowly, she eased the book onto her lap and opened it. 


He murmured the title, “Communicating with the Dead… So you believe in that?”


“I don’t know what I believe. But this book mentions walk-in souls and—“


“I think I have Robert’s soul in my body,” he exclaimed before he could change his mind.


HB didn’t mean to interrupt her, but it just happened. He couldn’t help it. He watched as Alison’s eyes rolled back, and she slumped over. 


“Alison?” he patted her hand and then her cheeks until her eyes fluttered open. 


“How… “ she looked confused. “Why? What?” She fell back on the couch. “I don’t believe it,” she said with a shake of her head, and her features turned stony. “I think you should leave.” 


“What?” HB cried. “No! No. I’m sorry!” Tears immediately filled his eyes. “I knew it was a bad time.”


“What a cruel and mean joke to play on me after what I’ve gone through!” Her eyes flashed with anger, something he couldn’t pinpoint. 


“I’ll let myself out.” He jumped up. He’d blown it with Alison, and she didn’t want to believe him. And he might not have a chance to convince her.

Author Biography:


Sue writes five-star LitPick novels that keep readers of all ages turning pages long into the night. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, attending author events, or walking her dogs. She has two children and five grandchildren. Snack wise, Sue is a salty-type gal, but wouldn’t say no to an occasional chocolate kiss or two! She isn’t sure she’s a reincarnated author, but if she was, she’d want to be Jane Austen, Mary Shelley, or Emily Brontë. When her novels are run through author comparison sites, she gets Anne Rice through Mark Twain—quite a wide spread which makes for interesting reading (Tom Sawyer was a Vampire?).
