Averie agrees to sit in on an exclusive dinner party as the fourteenth guest, in order to rescue the other attendees from bad luck. But it’s Averie who needs rescuing when all hell begins to break loose.
Averie Cooke has never set foot on the old Faulkner plantation because of the macabre history surrounding it; not to mention everyone says the place is haunted. A hundred and fifty years ago a slave by the name of Lunar Wilson was hung there. His lifeless body dangled in the breeze along with the gray Spanish moss. Later that same night, the petite southern belle, Emily Faulkner wrapped a thick rope around her delicate neck and joined her lover in the afterlife. Legend says all hell broke loose after that. Unaware that their only daughter was hanging dead up in the cupola, Emily’s parents continued on with their festivities, gorging themselves on prime rib, and guzzling expensive wine. They were pretty drunk by the time Lunar’s brothers burst inside the house slinging their hatchets, vindicating their brother’s murder. They decapitated James Faulkner, his socialite wife Elizabeth and dismembered all eleven dinner guest. The massacre was the bloodiest ever recorded.
So why would Averie agree to sit at the same table, on the same night, a hundred and fifty years later? She needs the money that’s why. But, she gets much more than she bargains for when she and another mysterious guest transports back to the year 1859, exactly one month before the fateful hanging of Lunar Wilson. Things go from bad to worse when she discovers the only way back home is to stop his murder. Can she put her fears aside long enough to change the past?
Thirteen for Dinner is a page turning thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat one minute, laughing out loud the next and crying while you contemplate the meaning of life. Dealing with issues such as racism, slavery, hatred, and fear you’ll discover the only weapon that has the power to damage them all…love.
