Haunting Love by KA Moll

Book Clips 

Welcome to Book Clips, the mini podcast where authors and narrators give you a taste of a book with a short snippet. 

In this episode we hear an excerpt from the audiobook for Haunting Love by KA Moll narrated by Emily Beresford

 

Synopsis 

Anna Crestwood was raised with the strict beliefs of a religious sect nestled in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains. She's a lesbian with a ton of baggage - fearful, guilty, and alone. Very few things would compel her to leave the familiar. The job offer of a lifetime is one of them. Against her better judgment, she packs up and moves to Illinois. Unfortunately she's not there long before she's convinced that the devil is hunting her down.

Gabe Garst is a police officer. She's also a powerful medium. Her work with juvenile delinquents and ghosts is all that keeps her going. Inside she's dead, certain that her capacity to love is buried six feet under. Talking with and seeing the dead has always come easily, and yet for some reason she's not able to communicate with her late wife. She's grieving, depressed, and alone. Suicide seems like the best option. It's just a matter of time.

Anna's and Gabe's paths cross. Their attraction is immediate, but they hold back until all hope seems lost. As good battles evil, two tortured souls must engage in a struggle to overcome demons of their own.
