Today, I’m participating in Theresa Linden’s virtual book tour for her new book, Tortured Soul:
A single woman evicted from her family home. A terrifying specter that only she sees. A dark connection between his past and hers…
After her father’s tragic death and her mother’s recent passing, loss leaves an emptiness Jeannie Lyons can’t fill. Now she must leave her family home, the one place where her parents’ memory still lives.
An old house on the edge of town becomes Jeannie’s new home, one too big for her and her three-legged cat, but she soon gets the impression she’s not alone. Her brother blames her overactive imagination. Her sister-in-law suggests counseling. Her would-be boyfriend is the only one who believes her, but can she trust him? With nowhere to turn, Jeannie must face her inner demons and confront this soul from beyond the grave.
Set in modern times, this supernatural thriller is inspired by the apparitions from souls in purgatory to Eugenie von der Leyen (1867-1929).
My review: Like the author’s other books, I was completely enthralled with Tortured Soul, a supernatural thriller. The characters are believable and well-developed and the story rings true. Read it in two sittings. Highly recommend. 5/5.
