The Last to See Me - A Reading and Signing with M Dressler
Emma Rose Finnis was born and died in the California town she now haunts. She was once a lowly chambermaid and worse, a Finnis. But now, no one remembers any of that—because there are none left to remember, but her. In a world where spirits are considered “unclean,” the spirits of her town have already been extinguished. All except Emma Rose. But when a determined hunter arrives with instructions to remove her once and for all, Emma Rose refuses to be hounded from her haunt, the stately Lambry Mansion. She’s earned her place and she’ll keep it—even if it means waging a war on the living. After all, she’s got nothing left to lose. The same might not be said for those who still enjoy the luxury of a breath . . .
