The last of an ancient Cornish clan, Carla Tregellas has inherited her historic ancestral home: a massive mansion looming high up on the jagged cliffs of Cornwall. From the moment Carla takes possession of the grand manor she feels right at home, warmly welcomed by everyone--"except" the strange and secretive housekeeper, Mrs. Pendennis, who warns the new owner of the tragic, inevitable fate that will surely befall her if she does not depart at once. But Carla cannot leave, for the unseen bonds of a dark family curse are beginning to tighten . . . and a demon lover waits.

Review: Wait for What Will Come

User Review  - Nancy Hughey - Goodreads

Nancy Drew for grown ups! This book has everything I like... Old house with secret rooms, a vivacious, spirited heroine and a good mystery that includes an element of the supernatural. Old fashioned and quaint as it was, still an entertaining and enjoyable read! Read full review
