Isla Greyabout this book: Many people live and work in the same place. But what if that place was a funeral home? Welcome to Abigail Farmer's world. Abigail lives and breathes the funeral home business. She doesn't need anything or anyone distracting her from her plans to one day run the family business on her own. That includes the arrival of Hasten Holmes. There's an immediate mutual disdain between the two when Hasten begins working at the funeral home. But when murder, mayhem and some missing body parts get added to the mix, Abigail and Hasten soon learn that they may have to trust each other or risk being the next arrivals on the embalming room's cold slab.
I actually came up with the idea of "A Voice in the Dark" several years ago. It was influenced by some creepy, old funeral homes and the bad stories you hear either on the news or on a True Ghost Story episode. Even though I had an outline and premise for the story, it ended up on the backburner for a few years with the arrival of my daughter. Somehow I just couldn't mix a funeral home story with Dr. Seuss and Mother Goose. (Maybe that'll be a future project!)
Since I began writing the story, "A Voice in the Dark" has taken on several characteristics, some of which have stayed while others have fallen by the wayside. I have probably read and asked more questions about the funeral home business than any normal person should be curious or even know about. On a side note, you really have to have an admiration for people who actually do that for a living.
If you like a thrilling story with a little romance, be sure to pick up "A Voice in the Dark". I hope you like reading it as much as I enjoyed telling the story.
