PETALS ON THE PILLOW

Author(s): 

It succeeds to some degree with her innovative ghost story, which was inspired by Daphne du Mauriers Rebecca. The suspense and
mystery, however, are not as well supported. Perhaps not enough characters are present and involved at the manor to make credible murder suspects.

Harrison St. John hired student Kelly Donovan to paint a mural for his daughter's bedroom. He's lived a reclusive life since the death of his wife. It seems like things will never change until Kelly develops a friendship with his daughter, Betsy, and their homey housekeeper.

But these relationships are soon surpassed by the eerie presence of Harrison's wife, Elizabeth, who was murdered.

As Kelly and Harrison fall in love, urgent questions arise: Who exactly is Harrison kissing? And even more compelling, who is kissing him back Kelly or his dead wife?
