A ghostly presence compels a couple to seek the truth about their home’s unsettling past
"A spellbinding mystery of timeless love, loss, and a house that held all the answers. I couldn't put it down."
—Judith Evans Thomas
"Living in a 100-year old Michigan farm house myself, I was totally pulled into the real possibilities Newhof's characters found themselves in. Ghosts and real life haunts made for a compelling read."
—Robbyn Smith van Frankenhuyzen, author of the series Hazel Ridge Farm Stories
"Spirits & Wine is a can't-put-down novel that feels less like fiction and more like sharing a glass of wine with your best friends who go on to disclose the deeply disturbing, deadly things occurring in the lovely old house they planned to restore. Susan Newhof writes truthfully and with beautiful care, evoking the icy appeal of a small lake shore town in Michigan while revealing the wretched secrets that cling to one dwelling. After reading this harrowing tale in one sitting, I am dying to ask the author—did these menacing events really happen . . . to you?"
—Jerrilyn Farmer, author of the bestselling Madeline Bean Mysteries
"If only the walls could talk—and they do in Susan Newhof's thrilling Spirits & Wine. Readers be prepared for an absorbing adventure into John and Anna's journey to solve a century old mystery wrapped within the walls of their newly purchased 'dream home'. Told creatively in tandem, the couple’s story of life in pursuit of truth will leave you wondering just where the fact ends and the fiction begins. Keep the lights on and enjoy!"
—Beckey Burgoyne, author of Perfectly Amanda: Gunsmoke’s Miss Kitty—To Dodge and Beyond
"Scare up a good glass of wine and settle in for a great read! Susan Newhof's Spirits & Wine takes the reader on an unforgettably haunting journey."
