Book Review: The Empty Grave – Blog Tour & Giveaway

Find it: Amazon, B&N, iBooks, TBD, Goodreads Additional Books in the Series: THE SCREAMING STAIRCASE , THE WHISPERING SKULL , THE HOLLOW BOY, THE CREEPING SHADOW.

While there are some terribly horrific moments, there’s lots of humor and banter, […]
