Présentation de l'éditeur

Windwood Farm has a terrible secret–one that’s been buried for nearly 100 years. Taryn Magill aims to uncover it…or die trying.

As a mixed media artist and urban explorer with a love for abandoned houses and a big imagination when it comes to the past, 30 year old Taryn has never really met an old house she didn’t like. In fact, she’s made a career out of painting these sad, often derelict structures, to show them in their former glory for her clients.

With Windwood Farm, though, she might have bitten off more than she can chew!

The locals refer to it as “the devil’s house” and even vandals have stayed away from this once grand stone farmhouse in Vidalia, Kentucky. Hired by the Stokes County Historical Society to paint it before it’s demolished by a land development company, Taryn’s determined to make friends with the house and farm everyone around her seems to be terrified of.

As it turns out, though, their fears may just not be unfounded.

Who is the woman whose cries echo throughout the farm and what does she want? What negative force about the house is so powerful that it won’t even allow the upstairs bedroom to be touched? Does the 93 year old vanishing of the next door neighbor have anything to do with the house’s mysteries?

Taryn wants the answers to these and the house may just be trying to tell her because now, when she looks through her camera, she doesn’t have to use her imagination to see the past–


Will Taryn be able to figure out what happened here AND escape with her sanity and life before the house comes down? Because now it seems like someone is trying to kill her! Using what her camera reveals to her and her wits, she’ll try to unravel the mysteries of the farm and get out before it’s too late.

The first book in the Taryn’s Camera series. The Taryn’s Camera series revolves around 30-year-old Taryn Magill, a mixed media artist who recreates historical, and often rundown, buildings through her paintings. Her real talent, however, is the fact that she can SEE the past through the lens of her beloved camera, Miss Dixie. Together, they work to solve the mysteries of the places they visit-sometimes with the extra help of the dead.

**Updated in 2015 to include Taryn's photographs within the chapters.**

Biographie de l'auteur

Rebecca Patrick-Howard's real biography isn't nearly as interesting as the one she's made up in her head so she'll leave you with that one:

At the age of 3, her family sold her to a band of traveling gypsies. Forced to become a bareback rider in the circus, she spent her younger years traveling the country, living out of suitcases and selling macrame keychains on the side. At the age of 16 she became a professional yodeler but, after winning the international yodeling competition in Switzerland at 19, decided to retire at the height of her career. Now, she and her husband (an organic rutabaga farmer from Wales) live in an isolated cabin in eastern Kentucky where they play with a local mariachi band every Friday night, are involved with a murder mystery dinner theater club, and enjoy making origami owls.

Biographie réelle de Rebecca Patrick-Howard n'est pas aussi intéressant que celui qu'elle a fait dans sa tête pour qu'elle vous laisse avec celui-là:

À l'âge de 3, sa famille l'a vendu à un groupe de gitans qui voyagent. Forcé de devenir un écuyère dans le cirque, elle a passé ses jeunes années à parcourir le pays, vivant de valises et la vente de porte-clés en macramé sur le côté. À l'âge de 16 ans, elle est devenue un Yodeler professionnel mais, après avoir remporté le concours de yodel international en Suisse à 19 ans, a décidé de prendre sa retraite à la hauteur de sa carrière. Maintenant, elle et son mari (un rutabaga de l'agriculteur biologique du Pays de Galles) vivent dans une cabane isolée dans l'est du Kentucky, où ils jouent avec une bande de mariachi locale tous les vendredis soirs, sont impliqués dans un mystère assassiner souper-théâtre club, et profiter de faire des hiboux en origami.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The Evil That Men Do 11 septembre 2014
Par BirdieTracy - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Taryn is an artist whose specialty is bringing old buildings back to life through her paintings. She has a unique ability to "see" what homes, barns and other deserted places looked like before time and neglect got the better of them, which is accomplished through a mixture of observation, architectural design education and intuition.

Windwood Farm is different though. From the outset there are strange goings on. Feeling as if she is being watched, a dark malign presence, doors and windows misbehaving and an overwhelming sense of sorrow make Taryin increasingly apprehensive. Then her camera starts taking some very interesting photographs.

These stories are like catnip for me. Old houses and long abandoned buildings are almost impossible for me to pass by without wanting to go in and look around. Other lives lived in a past that few, if any, still remember make me wish I could time travel.

This is a better story than many others in this genre. As Taryn explores the house and the history of those who had lived there she comes to believe that terrible things happened inside this once beautiful home. And she is correct.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 suspense, mystery, haunted houses and a camera named Miss Dixi....thats a winner to me 6 mai 2014

Format:Format Kindle
I received this book from Paranormal romance & authors that rock for an honest review and I can honestly say I really enjoyed this book and am l looking forward to the next. The author,Rebecca Patricia-Howard created a wonderful story of a woman, Taryn and her side kick camera Miss Dixi ( I liked that, really....naming and having conversations with your cool is that..) At any rate Taryn sees the original beauty in old broken down houses and paints them in their original glory.....but she also sees the people who originally lived and died their and can't help but want to help them tell their story good or bad or indifferent. But can she and miss Dixi get to the bottom of this town's secrets or will she be lost in the past? I really enjoyed Tatum, she is vulnerable and real.'......I would definitely recommend.end this book to, woman and teens .......a very very interesting read......

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Something different for the "hauntings" genre. Very enjoyable read. 15 août 2014

I really enjoyed this story. I love the twist of Taryn's abilities with the camera. I am a fan of stories with the hauntings theme and this one is truly different from all others I have read.
Now I keep checking to see when the next book will be out!
I hope Ms. Patrick-Howard continues with this series. I'm waiting with baited breath for what the future holds for Taryn and Miss Dixie.

I picked this book up when I was looking for a good old fashioned ghost story. I loved the history and appreciated Taryn's love for old buildings. For the most part, I enjoyed it but there were a few things that bothered me, which is why I only gave a 3-star rating.

While I liked Taryn and her camera, I felt like it took way too long to find out her back story. There were hints dropped that didn't really make sense and weren't explained until much further on. Maybe I'm just not used to this style of writing, but it was a bit frustrating to be already interested in other events happening in the story, then suddenly be thrown back to Taryn's background. Poor timing? I wanted to know about this part of Taryn's life chapters ago. Right now I'm interested in the ghost's background.

It took a really long time to work up to that ghost story, and then at the end of the book, I felt like it wasn't finished. That was frustrating.

I didn't need the gory, graphic details of Taryn's illness. I get the idea if the author just said she was violently ill and left it at that.

I am reading the second book in this series, and perhaps I'll have a change of heart. Now that we know Taryn, maybe we can get to the ghost story and pay more attention to that and wrap it up without any loose ends or hanging questions.
