AngelsFear_comp2Set in the Central Valley of California, author Sunny Frazier once again explores the rich agricultural region, rural law enforcement and crimes shrouded by Tule fog in this sequel to FOOLS RUSH IN.   

            Amateur astrologer Christy Bristol finds herself on the fringes of Kearny society and a members-only sex club as she reluctantly takes on a missing person case. Prominent business man Avery Anders has disappeared and his wife cannot go to the authorities. When the man’s horoscope reveals an affair and mortal danger, she enlists Christy to do an investigation.

            Christy’s day job with the local sheriff’s department is on the line as her investigation crosses paths with several homicide cases and surly Detective Kerwin. Could the cases be connected?

            Aided by best friend Lennie Watkins, the women find themselves on a treacherous trail that leads to the Veterans Hospital, a sex-specialty clothing store, mansions of the rich, and even touches on the Viet Nam War. With only a prescription bottle and matchbook as clues, the young woman must face the Knights of Sensani and her own sexual limitations.

            Christy Bristol must go where angels fear to tread.        

REVIEWS

 If you liked “Fools Rush In” you will love “Where Angels Fear”. Frazier takes us into Christy’s life. Sometimes things are confusing. Sometimes they are embarrassing. But there are wonderful and warm times too. This tale has one of the best, “feel good” endings I have ever read. I laughed and I felt good for Christy. This is a wonderful story and one everyone should definitely read. You won’t be sorry. I give it a 9 of 10 on the Weaver meter.
Enjoy, Sid Weaver

 

Beginning with the stiletto boots and whip on the cover, Where Angels Fear pulls the reader into a labyrinth of death, domination, and fear with just the right number of humorous turns. Frazier has created a character in Christy Bristol that readers will gladly welcome into their living rooms in book after book to see how she grows and to learn more about how she uses her gift for astrology.  Where Angels Fear is a delightful, fun read that proves Frazier has no fear as a writer.

 From its dark, compelling opening, ‘Where Angels Fear’ is an intriguing mystery. Christy makes an appealing and resourceful heroine, with many tangled relationship issues we can all identify with. Her friend Lennie is equally engaging and there are many nice touches of humor when she is investigating. The story moves with great pace, yet at the same time the colors, culture and cuisine of this part of California are excellently described, and overall the novel has great atmosphere. The ending is truly gripping.  Christy’s relationship with her lover also develops and ‘Where Angels Fear’ rounds off with a lovely scene between Christy and Rod. I enjoyed, ‘Where Angels Fear’ very much and I look forward to reading more of this series.

L1-House on the Bluff_Book 1-54Synopsis – The House On The Bluff – Book 1 – Legacy Series
*
Suspense, Mystery, Drama, Romance….

When Abigail Adams Pierce stumbled onto the family legacy, she never imagined in her wildest dreams what the effect her discovery would have on her from that moment on. Intrigued by the description of an 18th Century ancestor’s blood-curdling screams in the dark of night, and never having been heard from again, piqued her curiosity. She had to see what it was about the “house” that made people tremble. Why no one had ventured near it since 1789; why no one had dared.

According to the stories handed down from one generation to another, it had been there for centuries, standing tall … empty … beckoning …maintaining its enchantment and its ageless elegance, rising as a silent sentinel waiting for the one long destined to enter to claim ownership.Waiting for someone? Me, she thought. The house was waiting for me. It had to be.

Little did she know that her curiosity would take her on a hair-raising journey she would never forget; a journey that once started would have no turning back at the risk of losing her life in the physical sense and being trapped within the spiritual realm that had invaded the Pierce House. She dismissed, out of hand, warnings of the terror, foretold,lurking within the “house” that went along with claiming ownership.

This then was her family’s legacy handed down from the 11th Century to the descendent who would dare to enter in spite of its warnings … A legacy that prophesized the danger and horrendous trials set before it.Neither was she aware that if she didn’t take the first step into this foreboding journey, she would never meet the one who was preordained to be her Consort. All she knew was that it would all start on the day she entered the family’s ancestral home by the sea.

The House On The Bluff – Book I – Legacy Series
By Elena Dorothy Bowman
ISBN# 1-59431-363-6
Write Words, Inc./Cambridge Books

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

Review:  by Rachel Webb Publicist

–“The House On The Bluff Mystery-Romance Novel is a real spine tingler.”
–“I’ll never feel safe in the fog again after reading House on the Bluff! It’s spooky because it’s historically authentic, and it’s romantic and funny at the same time. –Rachel Webb, Publicist, London, England
Review by: –Mike Purfield, b-independent.com
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

Review by:   ~ Bobby Duffy English Teacher. Florida – January, 2003….

–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
