Spencer’s Cove

Cover of Spencer's CoveSpencer’s Cove tells the story of a mystery writer, an heiress, and a historic lighthouse…

Successful mystery author Foster Owen hasn’t finished a manuscript in three years and her writer’s block shows no signs of retreating. When the bills start piling up, an unexpected offer to ghost write a memoir for an heiress on the West Coast seems like too good an opportunity to ignore.

Painfully shy Abigail Spencer has just returned from studying abroad. The sprawling estate she inherited from her parents includes a crumbling mansion rumored to be haunted and a historic lighthouse nestled along the remote northern Pacific coast.

When the executor of the Spencer estate hires Foster to write the history of the family, Foster and Abby are drawn together as they peel back layers of history and uncover a story of lives adrift, secrets long hidden, and ancient ties to witchcraft. Can truths from the past help love blossom in the present?

Reviews for Spencer’s Cove

“I loved the characters in this book. On the cold pacific northwest coast, Vaun creates a cast of warm and welcoming. These women are badass and brilliant and inspiring. I loved every single one of them, each with their own little flaws and quirks, but with huge hearts and strong will, lends to dynamic and three-dimensional characters that jump off the page and into your heart… I wouldn’t mind if this got turned into a series and we got to read Evan’s story next! I’m not ready to let this world or these characters go.” — Jasmine G

“Wow! This book was not what I expected from the blurb.I don’t want to give away any spoilers, so I’m going to be vague in this review. BUT… you have to give this one a try. It is intriguing, exciting and spellbinding. You won’t regret it for a second!” — Melissa

“Missouri Vaun does a phenomenal job weaving this unbelievably tense mystery into the novel in such a masterful way that once it started to be revealed my heart rate increased and I could not move until the last page. The book was riveting.” — Ro
