SNEAK PEEK: Ghost of a Gamble by J.E. McDonald

GHOST OF A GAMBLEWickwood Chronicles Book 1
By J.E. McDonald

There’s something extraordinary hidden beneath Wickwood’s picturesque façade.

Bree Tisdale is a jack-of-all trades blogger whose work history is nothing but tragic. When she lands a job with a supposed ghost hunter—the mysterious Zack Liller—he threatens to upend her world. 

With an eviction notice in her back pocket, she doesn’t have much of a choice. Yet, as the mysteries pile up, the impossible suddenly starts to seem possible…

…Even trusting in Zack and the fire he lights inside her.

Zack Liller grew up with ghosts and has little time for fun and games.

Reservations that Bree will be a good fit for his sister’s company plague him, but one day spent with the vivacious woman ends up convincing him Liller Investigations can’t do without her. 

Or at least, that he can’t. 

But, as things heat up between them, he is forced to wonder if he can trust Bree enough to be honest about his abilities. 

When the house they’re investigating turns out to be one of the most active he has ever experienced—and the most dangerous—he realizes he may not have a choice.

J.E. McDonald was born and raised in Saskatchewan, Canada, The Land of the Living Skies. As a child, she was either searching the clouds for identifiable shapes, or star-gazing way past her bedtime. She cut her teeth watching Star Trek, James Bond movies, and reading the Harlequin novels her mother left in the bathroom—which resulted in an extremely skewed sense of sex education by age eleven. All of these factors contribute to her love of writing rom coms with a paranormal twist, romantic suspense, and far-future romance.

J.E. resides in Saskatchewan with her husband and three daughters, a stay at home mom by day, and an obsessed writer by night. 

City Owl Press will be publishing her debut novel, Ghost of a Gamble, the first installment of The Wickwood Chronicles, in June 2020.
