Book Description from Goodreads:

Sometimes love lasts forever...but maybe it shouldn't. Willowwind, a beautiful Civil War era bed and breakfast, is run by a loving couple, Adrian and Caroline Stone, but it's also haunted by a long-dead Civil War era vampiress, Lilith, who believes the man, Adrian, is her reincarnated soldier/lover and will do anything to have him, body-heart-and soul, for her own again, no matter how many she must kill. But Adrian's wife, Caroline, along with the help of the ghost of her dead father, will do anything to make sure that doesn't happen.

My Review:


The following review is my opinion and not a paid review. I was given a free copy of the book from the author for my honest opinion.

Caroline Stone has just lost her father she has been taking care of him for the last few years. Her father Edward Winters was a very kind and loving man. Caroline misses him very much and is having a hard time handling his death. After taking care of him for the last year she decided to take up her career as a professional psychotherapist. She thinks that maybe she can help their guest at the inn her and husband Adrian run together. She wants to help people with their grief. She thinks her helping others cope with their grief may just help her deal with her own grief. She can't get her father off of her mind. She wakes up her thinking about him and she goes to sleep with him on her mind. She feels angry and guilty because he died.

There have been some strange things happening at the inn. Adrian, Caroline's husband has been seeing a woman; well he is not sure what he is seeing. He doesn't know if he is seeing a ghost or if he is losing his mind. Something attacked one of their guests and now something is attacking their neighbor's animals. Wayne their neighbor is a farmer and has lived on the farm all of his life with his mother. His mother tries to keep Wayne all to herself. At Times she acts like a wife instead of a mother. Ever since her husband died she has tried to replace him with Wayne.

Adrian is a very caring and loving person; he thinks all life is precious. He has not told his wife about the woman he has been seeing. Caroline knows something is upsetting him and that he is keeping something from her. But she knows her husband and besides she knows from her experience as psychotherapist that he will tell her in his own time, when he is ready.

The woman that Adrian is seeing lived back during the civil war era. She thinks Adrian is her husband and she wants him back and she will do anything she has to in order to get him back. She will kill anyone who gets in her way including Caroline. She is very jealous of Caroline. She wants her husband and her home back no matter what the cost is.

The Woman In Crimson is definitely not like any other book about witches, vampires and ghost that I have ever read. There is a lot of twist and turns that will keep you on your toes just trying to keep up. It will keep you turning those pages so fast that you will probably have little burnt marks on your fingertips wanting to know what The Woman In Crimson is going to do next. Or in my case flipping the pages in my e-reader so fast my pc is starting to smoke. I loved the new twist about vampires and witches and I think you will too. So I think if you have not read The Woman In Crimson I say what are you waiting on?

About the Author:

Dinosaur Lake Author  

Since childhood I've always been an artist and worked as a graphic designer in the corporate world and for newspapers for twenty-three years before I quit to write full time. I began writing novels at 21, over forty years ago now, and have had sixteen (nine romantic horror, two romantic SF horror, one romantic suspense, one romantic time travel and two murder mysteries) previous novels and eight short stories published from Zebra Books, Leisure Books, Avalon Books, The Wild Rose Press, Damnation Books and Eternal Press.


I've been married to Russell for thirty-four years; have a son, James, and two grandchildren, Joshua and Caitlyn, and I live in a small quaint town in Illinois called Columbia, which is right across the JB Bridge from St. Louis, Mo. We have three quirky cats, ghost cat Sasha, live cats Cleo and Sasha (Too), and the five of us live happily in an old house in the heart of town. Though I've been an artist, and a folk singer in my youth with my brother Jim, writing has always been my greatest passion, my butterfly stage, and I'll probably write stories until the day I die…or until my memory goes.
