Blurb for Dark Shadows: Heiress of Collinwood
Mysterious, romantic, scary and wonderfully atmospheric, Lara Parker’s Heiress of Collinwood captures all of the magic that has cast a spell over generation after generation of Dark Shadows fans. It’s a novel that positively gleams with a great sense of style and a great sense of place – and that place is the magnificently imaginative territory known as Collinsport, Maine. It’s a landscape Parker knows intimately well, having played Angelique on the original series and having written three previous Dark Shadows novels. Parker’s portrayal of Angelique made a tremendous impact on viewers. Now Parker continues the enduring storytelling legacy with a suspenseful and gripping tale of Victoria Winters returning to the grand and gloomy mansion of Collinwood . . . and finding it empty (except for the spirits, of course). Like Victoria, you’re lured into the mystery, then held in its thrall. Unlike the Collinwood Victoria discovers, this novel is anything but empty. It is, indeed, packed with all of the elements (and a few added ingredients) that went into the intoxicating brew that was (and is) Dark Shadows. There is a point in the novel where Parker quotes the favorite line of Poe’s raven, “Nevermore!” Her book will leave readers raving, “Please, some more!”
