The House On The Bluff – Book I – Legacy Series

Review by Anne K. Edwards, Mystery Fiction.net
A mysterious house lures people to it and they are never heard from again–alive. This causes fear in the neighborhood of Adam’s Point to leave so it is isolated as well, except for one young man who is staying at his family’s summer cottage.
Abigail has come to lay claim to this house with its bleak atmosphere, but the question is, will she claim the house or will it claim her? She is tempted more than once to flee the sights and sounds she encounters, but determination makes her stay.
A story that seems to have a touch of horror, but the reader will find there is a twist in the plot that leads away from that idea. Ghosts abound with doors closing on their own, mysterious music with no apparent source, meals appearing on cue with no staff, cold unappealing rooms, all adding their own touch to the atmosphere of a house you will enjoy visiting while waiting for Abigail and her new friends, Ethan and Tony, to figure things out.
Talented author Elena Dorothy Bowman offers the reader something new in paranormal romance in a world peopled by fun characters (including the house). You’ll feel as if you’ve actually visited the place, so well done is the description.
Recommended as a fun read. Enjoy. I did. — Anne K. Edwards

on-line film entertainment, January, 2003….
–“In New England, the Pierce house sits on the bluff uninhabited for hundreds of years. The last person to live there disappeared, but Abigail, a descendent…has no intention of disappearing…The characters are innocent and charming. I laughed a few times at the bickering between the characters, falling for their chemistry and conflict. Most of the story takes place in the house where Abigail is trapped with her two friends Ethan and Tony. Bowman has written some great cat-and-mouse-in-the-maze sequences that topple anything Hollywood could come up with…For a short, breezy, haunting, and charming time,”The House on the Bluff” might be what you are looking for. — Mike Purfield

–Adams Point was not the most hospitable place in the world. Perched on a small island in a bay that allowed no ships or boats past its entrance…Never in anyone’s memory had the house been occupied, yet never deteriorated the way most abandoned houses did… — Bobby Webb
