Construction worker Sam Pargeter and his younger brother, Ricky set out with two friends, Ken, and Brian, for a quiet weekend at a rented mountain cabin. But things aren’t as quiet as they hoped when mysterious and peculiar things start happening the minute they arrive. Windows change position, hallways lengthen, whole rooms disappear, and Ricky seems to be the target of a spectral woman in white. Frightened away from the cabin, Sam, Ricky, and Ken soon discover they didn’t leave the trouble behind. Not only do the weird things keep happening, but Ricky mentally reverts to childhood. He and Ken are still persecuted by the woman in white. The only one who doesn’t seem to be affected is Sam, and he is determined to find out what is behind all the paranormal activity and put a stop to it before it destroys his brother and best friend.
Review by Linda Jennings: 5.0 out of 5 Stars. Another keeps your attention book. Cherie’ Waggie, you did it again. This is the second book I have read of Ms. Waggie. This is an attention keeper, it’s hard to put down once you start it. I can see this becoming movie. I enjoyed the suspense and kept me wanting to know what was going to happen next. I will certainly be looking for more of your books. Think I just found my new best author.

Lucifer House by Cherie’ Waggie.
After the death of her father, magazine editor, Olivia Gray has to get away for the holidays. The isolated coastal town of Pirates’ Point, Maine seems to be the perfect place.
Her first night at her friend’s beach house, she discovers Pirates’ Point has a night walker.
Chris Wu, a lonely man who lives in an ancient rock house on the cliff overlooking the ocean is a former international pop star who disappeared from public view eight years earlier after a tragic car accident. His home, Lucifer House, built by a notorious pirate captain, Jean-Paul Lucifer, is believed by the townspeople to be haunted by the ghost of 10-year-old Charity Lucifer.
After an accident temporarily cripples Chris Wu, Olivia moves in to help him and soon becomes convinced not only that Charity does haunt Lucifer House, but that she is trying to get a message to Chris concerning the car accident. It isn’t long before Olivia becomes convinced the accident wasn’t an accident and someone in Pirates’ Point wants Chris dead.
5 Stars: Paranormal ghost mystery set in Maine.
If you love paranormal, mystery, romance and suspense, you will find Lucifer House by Cherie’ Waggie hard to put down.
Author Cherie’ Waggie weaves a believable, multi-layered tale that keeps one foot in main character Olivia Gray’s world and the other in the lure of the past.
I love everything Maine (born on the coast of Maine), so the well-developed characters and descriptive writing kept me engaged, as the sleuth in me needed to know what happened in this coastal town.
Main Character Olivia Gray just needs some time away from the bustle of the city after the death of her father. Little does she realize what awaits her in the cold, damp, coastal, New England fog. I invite you to Pirates’ Point, Maine and specifically invite you to Lucifer House (built by a notorious pirate captain, Jean-Paul Lucifer) where the ghost of 10-year-old Charity Lucifer might just reach out of the mist and touch you.
Settling in, Olivia Gray leaves her room to explore her surroundings and I quote. “Outside, the half-moon dangling over the ocean bathed the world in silver blue light. She went onto the deck to watch the waves play along the shore and movement caught her peripheral vision. She turned her head.
…Someone was walking along the beach, his hands in the pockets of his heavy coat, bare head bent, oblivious to the waves that seemed to wash over his feet. A solitary, lonely figure against the backdrop of the ocean and night, he passed the beach house and seemed to melt into the darkness.
…Olivia shivered. There were no such things as ghosts.
…Returning to her room convinced that the night walker must have been some local unable to go to sleep, she climbed back into bed. Maybe he lived in the house on the hill. And maybe the drive to Maine wore her out more than she thought. Maybe she imagined him. After all, who would walk-through ice-cold water in the middle of the night?”
…The night walker is only the beginning; Olivia finds all her senses fully awake and engaged as the mysteries surrounding Lucifer House beckons her to unravel the truth and bring peace to the spirits on Pirates’ Point.
After reading Lucifer House, enjoy her other books titled Without Warning: The Fireman; Look Back to Tomorrow; Twisting Dagger; Dakota’s Dragon; Once Upon A Weekend and No More Heroes: A Philip Chandler Mystery.
