The Destination… Book 4 of The Harbour Pointe Series #Historical Fiction Short Stories #Review @dlfinnauthor

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.

It’s 1967, and best friends Lacey and Sandy are enjoying a beach vacation, completely unaware of the danger that is lying in wait outside their door. Their room is quaint, with an amazing view of the Pacific Ocean and an old lighthouse, but a killer is stalking their next victim. Powerless, Annie the ghost watches, knowing there’s nothing she can do to help—not even her parents, the innkeepers. Who will survive their stay at the Harbor Pointe Inn, where the edge of evil lurks within the shadows?

About the Author

D.L. Finn

D.L. Finn is an independent California local who encourages everyone to embrace their inner child. She was born and raised in the foggy Bay Area, but in 1990 relocated with her husband, kids, dogs, and cats to the Sierra foothills in Nevada City, CA. She immersed herself in reading all types of books, but especially loved romance, horror, and fantasy. She always treasured creating her own reality on paper. Finally, being surrounded by towering pines, oaks, and cedars, her creativity was nurtured until it bloomed. Her creations vary from children’s books, young adult fantasy, and adult paranormal romance to an autobiography with poetry. She continues on her adventures with an open invitation for her readers to join her.

Our Review

Annie, the ghost from the second book opens this story, concerned that evil had found its way to Harbour Pointe, and threatened the peace and happiness of her parents. The presence of evil in this story was so cleverly woven in.

As I read this story, I felt at home, as if Harbour Pointe were my home too. This was my third visit and my kind of place, with the sea crashing against the cliffs and the forest nearby. I would be more than happy to share it with Annie, the local ghost.

Two girls arrive at the Harbour Pointe Inn for a holiday, two very different girls. Lacey, the lively, carefree one who drives too fast enjoying life to the full, breezing through life, whereas Sandy, a marine biologist and worrier needs to sort her life out, do what’s best for her, not her parents. Best friends, they were like sisters, but they could never be roommates.

I loved the way this story linked back to the characters in the second book, and look forward to reading The Seas of Time, Book 4 of this series.

The Destination is a well-crafted ghost story that had me guessing right up to the end…
