I was visiting Florida in August and stopped in at Rosa Sophia's Book Launch. I don't normally read Mysteries, but this one was fantastic! The story follows a young woman who inherits a farmhouse from her grandparents. As she delves deeper into her family's past, she begins discovering things about her grandparents that she would have never guessed possible. In the meantime, her grandmother's ghost guides her, and she has the chance to clear the name of an innocent man and find the truth behind ...more

Cover was fairly freaky, I probably would have read this much sooner had I ever seen that cover. I don't remember there being a ghost kid, but trust me there was a lot going on to make this a thriller.

As the synopsis stated, Kat inherited her grandparents' farmhouse. Seems like a dream come true, Kat is an artist and was eager to live in a farmhouse. So Kat and her fiance pack up their meager belongings and make the move. The thing about this I found distracting about th

Review is by Jerome Peterson--goodreads author.

Taking 1960 is a fascinating story that bends what we know as “paranormal” into believable scenarios. Katherine, the main character, is plagued by an unexplainable recurring dream of her deceased grandmother. When she finds out that she has inherited her grandmother’s house and makes the house her home the peculiar encounters increase. In the midst of the bizarre, Katherine begins her mission to find the truth about her dreams and her widowed grandf

I wanted this book so much. I'm pretty sure my local library doesn't stock it, and the description was just so reminiscent of a combination of Murder, She Wrote and Mystery Woman from Hallmark Channel that I just had to read a copy. It was worth it. So very worth it.

I wasn't sure at first what woman she dreamed of meant, but to find out it was actually a vision of her grandmother was fantastic. Rosa perfected the way of explaining it that made me believe I was right there in the hallway or the k
The only positive thing I can say about this book is that I liked the premise. There is no rhythm; flat, flat, flat. The sentence structure is so basic that I kept thinking I was reading a Harlequin Romance.
THis book was amazing. Time travel and a shocking murder mystery. What more can you ask for.
