Anne Francis Scott’s Lost Girl is set in a small town called Dawson Mills. After spending two years in a mental institute, Allison Weathers thought she was done believing she could see ghosts. When Allison moves to Dawson Mills, her past comes back to haunt her in the form of two ghost children and a stalker. Seeking answers to her mother’s disappearance, Allison enlists the help of local handyman, Paul and her reporter friend, Toni. As they begin looking into the ghosts’ identities and her mother’s disappearance, things start turning deadly. Someone dark and evil wants something in Allison’s new house and is willing to do anything to prevent the past from being dug back up. As the death toll gets larger, will Allison, Toni, and Paul be able to solve the mystery before the mystery kills them?

This book is a unique addition to the paranormal mystery genre. One great aspect of Scott’s novel is the unique, well-developed nature of the main characters. Their likable, flawed personalities only increases the book’s natural way of grabbing the reader’s interest. The plot is well-developed and the author does a great job of mixing suspense and mystery. The plot twists in the book are masterfully done and keep the reader guessing at how the book will end. Readers who like horror, mystery, suspense, and ghosts will enjoy reading this book. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 147750673X, Paperback)

Secrets can eat you up from the inside out, no matter what end of them you’re on . . . Renowned sculptor Allison Weathers seems to live the kind of charmed life most people only experience in their dreams. Affluent collectors seek out her art. Galleries around the country compete to showcase her talent. She’s married to the love of her life. Still, she is haunted by the unexplained disappearance of her mother, who, decades before, walked off without a word, and vanished. Time, as it has a habit of doing, moves on. Until a dreary January afternoon, and icy roads, turn her world upside down. The tragic twist of fate that leads Allison to the small mountain town of Dawson Mills, Tennessee gives her a chance to find a rhythm, to settle. And to pick up where she left off in the search for her mother. She can’t explain the odd kinship she feels for the rambling, old Victorian farmhouse she’s purchased, but her infatuation quickly morphs into dread when the house takes on a life of its own. Voices come from nowhere. Shadows begin to shift. She can feel the eyes on her. Cold. Wicked. Paul Bradford, a contractor who is bidding the renovation work on the house, believes it’s more than just Allison’s imagination conjuring up the unsettling activity. Toni Harper, a reporter for the local paper, concurs. She’s heard snippets of hand-over-the-mouth gossip about the former owner who died in his bed, but hasn’t been able to get to the root of the story. With their help, Allison discovers the house has a sinister history—one that ties to a muddled piece of her own past. As long-buried secrets begin showing the ugly truth, she must push herself to the limit, to keep what little stable ground she’s gained, and to fight the evil that’s stalking her.
