Dark Reminiscence

Cari McCoy is a best selling author residing in New York City. Growing up in a small town, she could hardly wait until graduation from high school so she could shake the dust of the grimy little town from her feet and begin a new and exciting life as a writer. She had chosen to go to New York not only for the cultural advantages, but also because New York is a city where you can attain a sense of anonymity. In this little town in central Ohio, where she had lived her entire life, everyone knows their neighbor’s business and most do not hesitate to make it the topic of conversation at social gatherings if it is juicy enough. Cari had not returned home since she had left 17 years ago, not even for her father’s funeral. She now finds herself returning for the funeral of her mother. Staying in the family home, Cari soon begins having odd dreams. A music box she had given to her mother years ago begins playing for no apparent reason. It seems something is leading her to recall things that had happened in her past. Things she cannot remember. She is about to learn that some secrets can be kept, even in this small town and Cari is about to experience a dark reminiscence

I enjoyed the book but wish it were longer. I think I was expecting it to be more like the Deadly Shamrock series.

About J.B. Reed

.B. Reed was born in Charleston, West Virginia, the youngest of three children. In 1958, her father was transferred to central Ohio and the family settled in a small town by the name of Baltimore. In 1987, J.B. returned to her roots when she and her daughter relocated to Charleston, West Virginia. In 2006 J.B. accepted a job transfer and found herself once again residing in Ohio; this time in southern Ohio, in a little town by the name of Proctorville, where she currently resides.

J.B. tried her hand at writing children's stories in her twenties, but with working a full time job and with her daughter's school activies, time was at a premium and writing was placed on the back burner. Demands on her time are less these days, and J.B. has found that she now has the freedom required to devote to writing....her true passion.

J. B.'s crime novel series, Deadly Shamrocks, is a selection of three books. Deadly Shamrocks was released in September 2010. Deadly Shamrocks II - It's All Relative, was released in March 2011. Deadly Shamrocks III - Blood Ties, was released in July 2013. All three books feature Irish American characters who will reveal the sinister side of Irish life.

Dark Reminiscence is J.B.'s latest book. The story is about a best selling author residing in New York City, who must return to the small central Ohio town where she had grown up for the funeral of her mother. Once home and staying in the family home, odd things begin to occur, things that seem to be leading her to remember things that had happened in her past that she long ago blocked out. Only with the help of her childhood best friend will she be able to recall the dark reminiscence. You will find Dark Reminiscence in paperback and Kindle version exclusively on Amazon.
