The Chalet

The Chalet

Murder Mystery/Romantic Paranormal

When Madeline honors her mother’s dying wish and returns to The Chalet, she discovers the true secret of the old mansion; a seductive spirit whose undying love has waited decades to claim her for its own.

Excerpt:
The Chalet was not just a walk down the street.  It was located in Minnesota near a large forest, surrounded on three sides by state land.  How many hunters and campers got seduced to go behind those great twin oak doors I’ll never guess.  But I know that at least a few did; the ones who got reported to my family over the years.  What they saw, I’m not sure.  Perhaps it was Madeline herself, or the force that remained of her, since she had died in that house 40 years earlier.

The Chalet had been a gift from an admirer who hoped to woo Madeline.  Joseph Martelli was not the kind of person you said no to, even if you were a big star like Madeline.  He controlled a big section of the Chicago mob.  He also loved to trophy hunt, and he took to the Minnesota woods every winter to do just that.  The Chalet had been Martelli’s place before he had given it to Madeline lock, stock, and barrel.  Just why a pure blood Italian of seven generations had gone overboard for a black singer wasn’t understandable, not with a wife and a mistress already.  Maybe it had been her music.  Madeline’s voice was pure magic.  Or maybe Martelli had done enough evil here over the years that the place was haunted already and he wanted to dump it. 

What happened behind the closed doors before the murder isn’t known, not conclusively.  Whatever disturbed Madeline’s packing also is not known.  But Madeline ran from it, whatever it was. 

Review:
One Hell of a Spooky Story!
The Chalet had once been the home of the wealthy Centaurian family, but now it is in disrepair, its beautiful rooms shrouded in dust.  Strange things happen in the old house.  There are rumours of ghosts walking the empty rooms, and those who venture there often never return.  Is the house really haunted?  Or do the legends stem from the vivid imaginations of the local people?  Madeline´s mother has just inherited the house and it seems that Madeline is about to find out for herself.

This is one hell of a spooky story.  You imagine it is going to be a typical gothic ghost story with some tragic event in the past triggering the apparitions.  Wrong!  But I’m not going to tell you what is really going on.  You’ll have to read it for yourself. 

PS.  I’d leave the light on if I were you.
