One shattered window. Two bruised hearts. And twelve days until Christmas.
 
Tessa Doyle’s semester in Europe left her a much wiser woman. But then she takes a job referral from her ex-boyfriend, and agrees to repair the stained-glass window, the last work she will need for her MFA. With a two-week deadline, she will have no time for anything else, especially men.

Sean Cavanagh’s Christmas season has lost all its cheer. Nothing has gone according to his plans for Christmas since the drone broke the window. Now organ pipes are missing, and a blizzard is threatening to cancel what could be Granda’s last sermon.

With a little magic and a lot of snow, Tessa and Sean work together to repair not just a window, but also their hearts.

August 2018 Extended Ending: Granda’s house hid more than boxes of papers could they be worth a million or more?
 
Snippet:
A tiny frown settled between her eyebrows. “May I see the broken window?”
Sean waved his arm to the far side of the sanctuary. “Sure, look all you want. Just don’t touch.”
“But I am going to need to touch it.”
“Whatever for?”
“If I’m going to fix it, I’ll need to touch it.”
“You fix the window?”
The woman’s chin lifted. “Of course. Why else would I be here?”
“What happened to Doyle?”
“Mr. Cavanagh, I happen to be Miss Tessa Doyle.”
“But you are a woman.”
“I have been all my life. Is this a problem for you?” She moved her hands to her hips, her eyes flashing. They were almost the same color blue as the glass in Mary’s robe. “Are you objecting to me repairing your window because I am female?”

Ghosts.
Psychics. Murder. Just another day in Donn’s Hill.
Mackenzie
Clair needs a fresh start. The death of her father and a broken
relationship rendered her old life unlivable. What better place to
build a new one than Donn’s Hill, the most haunted town in America
and her favorite childhood vacation spot?
But
returning to Donn’s Hill awakens more than nostalgia. As memories
resurface, so does a lost psychic ability to talk to the dead… a
power the poltergeist haunting Mac’s apartment is eager to use. 
Aided
by her new roommate—a spirited Tortoiseshell cat named Striker—and
the ghost-hunting crew of the Soul Searchers, Mac struggles to
control her newfound talents. She’d better get a handle on them
fast, because someone in town is hiding a deadly secret. If Mac can’t
divine the truth, Donn’s Hill will never be the same.
First
in a new series, this cozy paranormal mystery was the 2017 winner of
the League of Utah Writers Silver Quill award. “A genre-bending
gem of a book, cozy meets horror meets cat fancier in a unique town
of psychic tourism and ghostly secrets.” -Johnny Worthen, award
winning author of THE FINGER TRAP, THE BRAND DEMAND and WHAT IMMORTAL

Return
to the most haunted small town in America…
Mackenzie
Clair finally has this whole ghost-hunting psychic thing figured out.
The Soul Searchers are a hit, she’s got pet-parenting down, and she
even has a plan to banish the poltergeist running amok at a lakeside
cabin. Best of all, Donn’s Hill feels like home. But not everyone
loves the town as much as Mac.
A
world-famous paranormal debunker thinks the psychics in Donn’s Hill
are lying about their abilities. His determination to destroy the
Soul Searchers threatens Mac’s livelihood, and when a killer
strikes, the sheriff’s suspicions threaten her freedom.
Mac
needs all the help she can get to find the real murderer and clear
her name… even if that help comes from beyond the grave.

Caryn
Larrinaga is an award-winning mystery, horror, and urban fantasy
writer. Her debut novel, Donn’s Hill, was awarded the League of Utah
Writers 2017 Silver Quill in the adult novel category and was a 2017
Dragon Award finalist. Watching scary movies through split fingers
terrified Caryn as a child, and those nightmares inspire her to write
now. Her 90-year-old house has a colorful history, and the creaking
walls and narrow hallways send her running (never walking) up the
stairs. Exploring her fears through writing makes Caryn feel a little
less foolish for wanting a buddy to accompany her into the tool shed.
Caryn lives near Salt Lake City, Utah, with her husband and their
clowder of cats. She is an active member of the League of Utah
Writers and the Utah Chapter of the Horror Writers Association. Visit
CarynLarrinaga.com for free short fiction and true tales of haunted
places.
