For more than a hundred years, creative souls have traveled to the Bosco estate to live and work under its captivating spell. Novelist Ellis Brooks is writing a book based on the dark events that took place during the summer of 1893. All she knows is that the wealthy Milo Latham brought in a psychic medium to help his wife contact their three dead children—only to have the séance turn deadly, and his remaining child abducted. As Ellis uncovers the Latham family’s dark secrets, a series of bizarre accidents occur. The lines between past and present, living and dead blur, until the tangled truth threatens to ensnare all it touches.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A classic page-turner for anyone who likes to be haunted by a good story.” Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
The Ghost Orchid is a compelling read: the language is stunningly simple; the characters believable and the plot skillfully riddled with page-turning tension.” Tampa Tribune
“Is this an updated Victorian drawing room mystery or a romance novel/crime fiction–cum–ghost story? Never mind. Enjoy the atmosphere. And enjoy the ride; its twists and turns mesmerize.” Publishers Weekly
“Goodman’s interest in this tale is with the dead, who become far more dimensional than the living. Taylor responds with enthusiasm by making them far more memorable than the untidy group of writers wintering at the estate.” AudioFile
“Goodman’s mastery of eerily atmospheric and richly intricate plots is nowhere more evident than in this deliciously menacing and harrowing tale of greed and avarice, where perception is reality, and where past and present collide with disastrous results.” Booklist
