A Thin Slice of Heaven

By- p.m. terrell

Genre-Ghost Story/ Romantic Suspense

Publication Date- May 1st, 2015  

She had arranged to meet her husband in Northern Ireland for a second honeymoon, but when Charleigh arrives at the remote castle, she receives a message that he won’t be coming—and that he’s leaving her for another woman. Stranded for the weekend by a snowstorm that has blocked all access to the castle, she finds herself three thousand miles from home in a country she knows nothing about.

She is soon joined by Sean Bracken, the great-grandson of Laird Bracken, the original owner of the castle, and she finds herself falling quickly and madly in love with him. There’s just one problem: he’s dead.

As the castle begins to come alive with secrets from centuries past, she finds herself trapped between parallel worlds. Caught up in a mass haunting, she can no longer recognize the line between the living and the dead. Now she’s discovering that her appearance there wasn’t by accident—and is more sinister than she ever suspected.

Character Bio:
Charleigh is a woman around 40 years old who was abandoned by her father when she was still an infant. Her mother was fragile both physically and emotionally, and she devoted much of her life to caring for her. When Ethan pursued her, she was easily smitten but now, twenty years later, she finds herself abandoned once more: on the eve of their second honeymoon, he sends a text message informing her that he’s leaving her for a younger woman. She has always been the strong one - the woman everyone else depended upon - but left alone in a remote castle, she throws the ultimate pity party, which includes a bottle of champagne meant for the two of them. By her own assessment, she has a thickening middle, short and prematurely platinum hair, and a face lined with years of worry. But she soon begins to feel the years stripped away as she is joined by the ghost of Brackenridge Castle, Laird Sean Bracken, and falls in love with him.
