Secrets By the Sea - A Ghost Story for Halloween

Folks who like stories with a ghost or two attached may enjoy the tale of a spirit that has lingered for several hundred years in an old house overlooking the Caribbean Sea. Molly Dansey has hung around Edgewater Manor in Antigua since the late 1700s waiting for someone to discover a cache of gold coins she hid before her death. She appears from time to time holding her lantern, then disappears up the staircase in the center of the ancient house that Dana Sinclair has inherited.

Secrets by the Sea is the story of the mysterious death of Dana's grandfather and Dana's quest to uncover the murderer even if it turns out to be Clifton Wilder, the enigmatic neighbor who might steal her heart. Her grandfather's diary holds many secrets--some she wishes she had not discovered.

As I was writing this story, many of the characters took over to create an unexpected outcome. And the ghosts played their own part...
