THE GHOSTS OF RAVENCREST

(Book 1 in The Ravencrest Saga)

Ravencrest Manor casts long, black shadows across its grand lawns, through the surrounding forests, and over the picturesque town of Devilswood, below. It holds its memories – and its ghosts – close to its dark heart.

When governess Belinda Moorland arrives at Ravencrest to tutor Eric Manning’s children, it’s the most beautiful place she’s ever seen, but she soon learns that not only is it built on secrets, but its inhabitants keep plenty of their own – from the elegant English butler to the power-mad administrator, to handsome millionaire Eric Manning himself, who watches her with dark, fathomless eyes. But Belinda soon realizes that the living who dwell in Ravencrest have nothing on the others – the ones who walk the darkened halls by night … the ones who enter her dreams … the ones who are watching … and waiting … 

Ghostly screams echo as bony fingers clutch at her in the indoor pool. The spirit of a long-dead child calls to her. A trio of gibbering nuns haunts her, their mad black eyes blazing. Ravencrest is a house of spirits and Belinda is thrust into a world of waking nightmares where there is no distinction between the living and the dead.

Savannah

The Dead Don’t Always Rest in Peace

Jason Crandall, recently widowed, is left to raise his young daughter and rebellious teenage son on his own – and the old Victorian in Shadow Springs seems like the perfect place for them to start over. But the cracks in Jason’s new world begin to show when he meets Savannah Sturgess, a beautiful socialite who has half the men in town dancing on tangled strings.

When she goes missing, secrets begin to surface, and Jason becomes ensnared in a dangerous web that leads to murder – and he becomes a likely suspect. But who has the answers that will prove his innocence? The jealous husband who’s hell-bent on destroying him? The local sheriff with an incriminating secret? The blind old woman in the house next door who seems to watch him from the windows? Or perhaps the answers lie in the haunting visions and dreams that have recently begun to consume him.

Or maybe, Savannah herself is trying to tell him that things aren’t always as they seem – and that sometimes, the dead don’t rest in peace.

A review from THE NOVEL LADY:

sss5

“Sometime in October, when I list my absolute favorite Halloween night reads, this book will be way up on my list!  Probably #1.  This is one of those books you simply cannot put down.  Warning:  Don’t read SLEEP SAVANNAH SLEEP when you are alone in the house all night.  I made the mistake of reading it while in a hotel room while I was traveling alone on a trip from North Carolina to Florida. Not only did I not get any sleep because I was too busy reading… but even after I finished the book… there was no way I was going to shut my eyes!

This story starts out by drawing you in to a sweet yet quirky small town with interesting characters, a bar called The Devil’s Triangle, a book store called Tome After Tome, a blind old lady who “sees” Jason, a gossipy next door neighbor, and the beautiful sexy Savannah who does every guy in town and ends up missing.

Jason Crandall’s wife had died several months earlier and he was left to raise his two children, a sweet young daughter and a difficult teenage son.  Moving to this small town of Shadow Springs and starting up his massage therapy business in an old Victorian home seemed like a fresh start for all of them.  Then the dreams began.  Not my dreams.  I was too afraid to fall asleep.  I’m talking about Jason Crandall’s dreams.  Wow!  Such vivid descriptions!  This book keeps you guessing as to what these dreams mean and what happened to Savannah.  Or maybe I should just say “Who”.  I’m usually pretty good at figuring out who-done-its, but this one totally surprised me.

This is the first book I have read by Alistair Cross (I’m embarrassed to say), but I have already started looking for more to put on my TBR list.  I just won’t be reading them when I’m alone in a strange hotel room.”
