Old Acquaintance – A Mary O’Reilly Paranormal Mystery (Book 19)

Mary O’Reilly Alden froze and stared into the living room. She could swear that something moved in there. She walked around the counter, towards the living room, and heard a soft giggle. It sounded like a child’s voice, but there was something about it that sent chills down her spine. “Who’s there?” she asked, walking to the entrance of the room.

The giggle repeated, this time clearer.

“I don’t find this funny at all,” she replied firmly, trying not to show her fear. “Now, if you want my help, you will show yourself.”

She looked around and saw the branches of the Christmas tree shake.  She started to step forward, but a sudden grip of instinctual fear held her back.

The giggle repeated, and then the voice called out, “Mary. Mary. I’ve found you.”

Mary gripped the edge of the couch, her knees weakening beneath her. It was the voice from the asylum, and it was in her home.

      Yes, I am working on it. The voice actress that did all the other isn’t available. So it’s taking a little longer.

    I’m so addicted to your books, Terri! I’m now on Old Acquaintance and I just started it. It’s my first of your audio books without your original narrator, so it is talking some getting ised to.
    Will you continue the series with Mary O’Reilly’s brother, Sean?

    Thank you, Terri!

    ( Sincerely, Nancy from Indianapolis and from Chicago so I love that your stories are based there!)
