Présentation de l'éditeur

What if YOUR camera could see the past?


Book 6, Black Raven Inn, is available NOW! Read an excerpt at the end of this book!

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


This mixed-media artist and urban explorer has a great love for old, abandoned houses and 30-year-old Taryn has never met one she didn’t like. In fact, she’s made a career  of painting these sad, often derelict structures, to show them in their former glory for her clients.


The "Devil's House" may be more than she can deal with, though! 


The locals are afraid of it and even vandals have avoided this once grand stone farmhouse, claiming the sinister ghosts in the house aren't worth the adventure. Still, hired to paint it before it’s demolished, Taryn’s determined to make friends with the house that terrifies everyone else.


Their fears may not have been unfounded.


Whose cries echo throughout the house and what do they want? What force is SO powerful that it won’t 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 answers and the house may be trying to tell her because now, when she looks through her camera, she doesn’t have to use her imagination to capture the past–


SHE CAN SEE IT!


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


Book 1 in the Taryn’s Camera series. The Taryn’s Camera series is a 6-book paranormal mystery series that follows 30-year-old Taryn Magill, an artist who recreates historical, and often run down, buildings through her paintings. She can also 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. The hauntings and poltergeists are only the beginning of what they find! A little crime noir, a little mystery, a little paranormal-and a whole lot of fun!

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.

HASH(0x91c095f4) étoiles sur 5 The Evil That Men Do 11 septembre 2014
Par BirdieTracy - Publié sur Amazon.com
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.

HASH(0x91c05d80) étoiles sur 5 A Little More of This; A Little Less of That 11 mars 2015
Par Liz Henderson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
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.

HASH(0x91c05e7c) étoiles sur 5 OK, but a lot of unnecessary details 19 juin 2015
Par A customer - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is not a bad story, but I think it could have been better, if the author had not feared using the scissors. There is a lot of information that seems irrelevant. We learn that Taryn shared bed with her grandmother when growing up. Is that meant to signal something? Poor people that cannot afford another bed (then OK), or some psychological thing (then not OK and unhealthy)? Further, at the hotel there is another guest, a man that ask Taryn for company at dinner, that she declines. He is still there at a later time. And then he disappears. Why introduce somebody that is not relevant for the story? I expected the whole time that he should turn up at the end, and reveal himself as related to the ghost in some way... Alternatively, if Taryn just had a chat with him, he could have said something that provided her with a clue or lead. But now, he does not belong in the story. On the contrary, at some places it seemed like a few lines was missing, as the transition between the scenes was not signalled and therefore confusing, e.g. at one place the events of the day is directly followed by Matt's comments in the phone in the evening.

HASH(0x91c0606c) étoiles sur 5 Meh butchered story 9 octobre 2015
Par Lydia M - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
At first I thought I would really like this book. It had a history enthusiast who saw weird things through her camera and a haunted house. However, I was sadly let down. Taryn was obsessed with her grief to the detriment of her other relationships. I could never like her as a character because of how she pushed everyone away and treated her best friend. I could be sympathetic to her, but I never liked her.

The ending where the story of the house was revealed was very butchered and out of sync. It became very confusing and choppy. Honestly, the entire book lacked a good flow. It was like the author was writing whatever popped into her head, but never went back to edit it and give it a flow that made sense. Also, there were a couple of really weird paragraphs where it randomly switched to someone else's point of view, which was confusing and bizarre, especially since the rest of the book is from Taryn's point of view. I also thought the motive of the people trying to hurt taryn was really dumb. It's like the author was worried the book wouldn't be interesting enough unless someone was trying to hurt Taryn so she added in another mystery, which really muddied the waters and detracted from the ghost story. I think it was only used as a vehicle for telling what happened to some of the people who lived in the house. It was a very obvious plot device. I'm also not a fan of new age stuff, and if I had known this book would have a lot of that stuff in it, I probably wouldn't have read it.

Would I recommend it? No. There are other, better ghost stories out there with better plots and better characters.

Will I read the other books in the series? No. I didn't like Taryn, and I wasn't impressed with the author's writing abilities (especially since this isn't the first book she's written)

HASH(0x91c06144) étoiles sur 5 suspense, mystery, haunted houses and a camera named Miss Dixi....thats a winner to me 6 mai 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
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 camera......how 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 anyone...man, woman and teens .......a very very interesting read......
