I have just finished The Price of Atonement, the first book in this exciting new series, and have already picked up The Gift, by Gwen Plano!
The Harbor Pointe Inn has loomed on California’s cliffs for generations of Hawthornes. For some, it’s been a blessing. For others, a curse. Travel through two centuries of stories to discover the old inn’s secrets.
Some hauntings come from within.
Leviticus Sinclair has been a broken man since the murders of his wife and brother. Burdened by personal failures the night they were killed, he occupies himself by crossing the country, searching out departed spirits unwilling to move from this world to the next. His dead brother’s Bible and a pocket watch—forever frozen at the precise moment of his wife’s death—serve as grim reminders of a past he cannot exorcise.
Accompanied by Wyatt Resnick, a paid employee who fills the role of researcher and hired muscle, Leviticus arrives at the Harbor Pointe Inn amid rumors of a vengeful ghost. A phantom who may be the single spirit he has long sought, one capable of freeing him from his torment.
Set in the remote Pacific Northwest of 1887, The Price of Atonement is a story of jealousy, guilt, and one man’s relentless quest for absolution.

The Price of Atonement is the first story in the Harbour Point Series. A brilliant new collection of incredible stories that I already know that I will enjoy reading.
This story begins as all good ghost stories should. A towering lighthouse, perched on the cliffs, seems to stand guard over the Harbour Pointe Inn. The crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean, blending with the crawling mists and the dense woods, set the tone for this spine-tingling story.
Leviticus Sinclair is a seeker of departed spirits unwilling to leave this world. He is on his way to the Harbour Pointe Inn, the location of his latest calling. After failing to prevent the death of his wife and brother, he seeks his own salvation, too. The ghost who will finally free him from a life of torment.
The haunting of Leviticus Sinclair digs deep into your emotions, a spine-tingling account of a tortured man on a mission to free the world of lingering spirits while desperately struggling to cope with his own.
The author completely captures the melodrama of 1887. The atmospheric creeping mists instil a chill in your bones that isn’t easily dismissed.
I loved this story and would love to read more about Leviticus Sinclair!
