Fallen Leaves by @Author Tina Gayle #2 Excerpt


Family Tree Series

Family spiritual guides who guide the future generations.





Fallen Leaves Blurb –


As autumn comes to the Winston estate in Ohio, Amber Harrison learns further lessons in her new position as keeper for the spirits and ghosts who haunt the estate–and further lessons in love, too. She and her love, Carter Miller, grapple with the fears and passions of new love, while caught up in the storm of ancient family drama.


This is the second book in the unfolding saga of the psychics and talents associated with the Winston estate, a sheltered place where past, present, and future are woven into a single dramatic tapestry of love and desire. The tale spans multiple generations, multiple eras, and offers something special for all ages of reader. A sexy, erotic winner, with an assortment of couples to appeal to most tastes.



Amber reviewed possible solutions to Gwen’s problems, while watching Molly and Beth float around the room.

“I believe trust is Gwen’s issue,” Beth announced as if she’d found the answer.

“Trust?” Amber didn’t see how that would cause her great grandmother’s ghost to roam the halls of Winston Manor.

“Yes. I bet she thinks you’re the only one who has any faith in her.” Beth pushed her wire-rim glasses farther up on her regal nose.

“No, your theory doesn’t make sense. Gwen’s main objective is to protect Amber,” Molly argued. “Every time she’s appeared, her life has been in danger.”

“But it may not be her true reason for not crossing over into the spiritual realm.” Beth rubbed her hands on her crisp white apron.

“Wait.” Amber stood and stared at the two spirits. “Are you telling me Gwen has an excuse for being a ghost?”

Molly glided closer. The fringe on her 1920s style dress danced around her knees. “Ghosts live between worlds, not on Earth but tied to it. They have unresolved issues that won’t let them give up their prior life.”

“Until we find out what’s holding Gwen back, you’ll never be able to convince her to move on to heaven.” Beth shook her head in regret. “She can’t see us, so we can’t talk to her and discover the answer.”

“Still, the family council wants me to help her and will kick me out of my job, if I can’t achieve the task.” Amber walked across her suite and stopped next to the drop-leaf table. She retrieved her cup and gulped her coffee. The sour flavor mixed with her bitter frustration.

Her second challenge from the family spirits should be easy to solve. After all, her first assignment, to identify a murderer, had sent her into a killer’s path and embroiled her in the family’s dark history.

Jonathan, as leader of the council, hadn’t appreciated her intruding into his past. He’d threatened to throw her out of the house when she’d tried to prove Gwen hadn’t deserted him for a younger man. If her great grandmother’s ghost hadn’t shown up, Amber might not have discovered the truth and saved her job.

Again, she had to solve a two-hundred-year-old mystery. This task appeared to be even more difficult. “Jonathan only gave me a month.”
