Mercy

A vengeful ghost. An old secret. A weekend getaway they’ll never forget.

Julia Klein’s life has begun to unravel—her daughter Amy has been suspended from school, Julia is about to lose her job, and her boyfriend Garrett is being transferred thousands of miles away. Overwhelmed, she and Amy leave for a weekend at a rambling old colonial inn. Julia never suspects that Garrett, desperate to find a way to keep Julia in his life, has decided to surprise her by joining them. Nor does she expect her daughter to befriend a mischievous ghost…or that she herself would be possessed by the malevolent spirit of a long-dead mother.
As a dark secret emerges, Julia, Amy, and Garrett find themselves pitted in a fight for survival against a ghostly presence that intends to resurrect/repeat/relive a crime committed two centuries ago. And this time, Amy and Julia will be the victims. 

Night Owl Reviews Top Pick

"What a great ghost story penned by Jan Coffey. She had me riveted to my seat from the very first page and held my attention until the very last word. She entwined so many things into this storyline that I became an instant fan of hers early on in the story. I can’t say enough how I really enjoyed her writing style. It was fun getting to know her characters, both alive and deceased, and I really became engrossed in all the haunted history she included in this short ghost story. This is the first story that I read by this author and it surely won’t be my last. This is definitely a perfect story to read for Halloween or for that matter, anytime of year. Don’t pass this one up!"
