Taryn Magill is ready for a break from the supernatural. She'd never planned on being a psychic detective. When she’s offered the job at historic Shaker Village, known colloquially a Taryn's camera is finally revealing a past to her that she's always longed to see-the mysterious Shakers as they were 100 years ago. But is she seeing a past she hadn't bargained for? Taryn Magill is ready for a break from the supernatural. She'd never planned on being a psychic detective. When she’s offered the job at historic Shaker Village, known colloquially as “Shaker Town,” in central Kentucky, she’s ecstatic. The quaint, beautifully restored site it just what she needs to unwind, regroup, and relax. But the ghosts are restless. At first, the ghostly images of the past that her beloved camera, Miss Dixie, picks up are exciting. Taryn is finally able to see something that many visitors and historians would kill for–the mysterious Shakers in action. The village is alive like never before. Things take a deadly turn, however, when Taryn witnesses a murder.  Evil lurks among the idyllic setting and it’s wrapping its icy fingers around Taryn, threatening to pull her under into a world she might never escape.

A FREE companion short story is included with this novel!

Her real talent, however, is the fact that she can SEE the past through the lens of her beloved camera, Miss Dixie. Together, they work to solve the mysteries of the places they visit-sometimes with the extra help of the dead. The hauntings and poltergeists are only the beginning of what they find! A little crime noir, a little mystery, a little paranormal-and a whole lot of fun!

    I'm starting to feel pretty close to Taryn now after four books, and was especially looking forward to this one, as I'm curious of the Shaker movement. The paranormal events deepen here, from mostly seeing to her being more physically involved. It works, much because Taryn herself realizes how crazy it would sound to most people if she told them how she percieved her surroundings. But there is good contemporary reality here too, with people struggling with financial difficulties and the myriad o I'm starting to feel pretty close to Taryn now after four books, and was especially looking forward to this one, as I'm curious of the Shaker movement. The paranormal events deepen here, from mostly seeing to her being more physically involved. It works, much because Taryn herself realizes how crazy it would sound to most people if she told them how she percieved her surroundings. But there is good contemporary reality here too, with people struggling with financial difficulties and the myriad of problems one faces when struck with a chronic disease. I know only too well what it is like to be facing a doctor who knows less about what ails me than I do, and prescribing useless, or even harmful remedies! But one worries about how she will be able to continue this nomadic lifestyle with the progression of the EDS. There was less "food porn" in this installment, which I was quite enjoying in previous books, but Taryn probably benefits from this slightly healthier diet :-) Linguistically the author found a much better proof reader than for book three, and I could enjoy the flow and humoristic similies much better this time.

    There wasn't a (living) murderer this time, which was a nice change of pace. There were still questionable elements (the "good old days" factor, the handling of rape, Taryn being described as if she was old when she's really just young and disabled, etc...), but they were somewhat toned down. It was quite atmospheric, possible the most atmospheric in the series, and dealt with some interesting concepts. This book felt a little unfinished, perhaps the next in the series will help with that. The em There wasn't a (living) murderer this time, which was a nice change of pace.

This book felt a little unfinished, perhaps the next in the series will help with that. The emphasis on Taryn's connective tissue disorder is getting a little tiring. Seems like the author is trying to work through some issues. At least Matt was gone for most of this one, and it seems like they're going to break up soon. At least I hope so, it'd be a shame to drag out this relationship. Taryn deserves to be with someone who appreciates history.

    This series is an amazing trip through old haunted houses. The book was an amazing read. I recommend it to anyone who is interested in suspenseful books.

    I still enjoyed the plot of this installment in the creative paranormal series where the camera shows past scenes or entities that can't be seen by the naked eye, as well as Taryn's experiences. The problem is that although I suspect that the author or someone she loves suffers with medical issues, this book became overwhelmed with details of symptoms, struggles and treatment. I sympathise, but I want to read a well done paranormal story, not a medical reference book. #3 in the series started with I still enjoyed the plot of this installment in the creative paranormal series where the camera shows past scenes or entities that can't be seen by the naked eye, as well as Taryn's experiences.

I'm not sure I'll continue with the series, which is just too darn bad because the concept and writing is otherwise well done.

    Very good mystery. I love the paranormal spin that is the basis for the Taryn Camera series. The characters are very well described and the plot moves at a nice pace. The only thing I can find that might need a little improvement is the editing. Many grammatical errors such as words misspelled, words left out, etc. Also, I noticed that in some of the books the dates didn't stay the same as the story continued. Example: At the beginning the date would be 1830, but later the same event was discuss Very good mystery. I love the paranormal spin that is the basis for the Taryn Camera series.

    Book Four of this series. Taryn is painting old buildings in a Shaker town so that they can be restored, historically correct. This is a tourist destination and she is enjoying her stay there while working on several buildings. Sounds idyllic, doesn't it? Oops...not with ghostly doings, though. Read this one - it's intense. She is a brave young woman - dealing with her growing abilities, her art, her boyfriend, and her poor health. She really grabs your heartstrings, when you don't want to shake Book Four of this series. Taryn is painting old buildings in a Shaker town so that they can be restored, historically correct.

    Like the other books in the series, I love the mystery and the way that Taryn's paranormal powers manifest themselves. I felt the story was a little uneven... slow and yawn-worthy in some places, quick-paced in others. I felt like this book was in a bit of a holding pattern - still not knowing if she's happy about her "gift" or not, still not sure if she's happy with Matt, still not sure what to do with her grandmother's house, still not sure where to live. I need to see some personal growth and Like the other books in the series, I love the mystery and the way that Taryn's paranormal powers manifest themselves.

    This is truly unusual ghost story. This story has so many twists and turns I just kept read to find out what happened next. Very well developed characters. Love the mystery around the heroine and her camera. I truly enjoy how in each story we learn more about the heroine and the hero. The story that these ghost told was so interesting. I usually can figure out what is going to happen next. But not in this story. Great story. On to the next one!

    I Can't Get Enough of This Series! The only thing I can say is .... WoW. I love this series. I feel like I know Taryn, Matt ... and the other characters in these stories. As always the story kept me guessing all the way thru and took me by surprise in the end. The way this author writes is awesome and so real. If I had 10 thumbs..they would all be up.

    Great! I loved this one. I have read all the Taryn's Camera books and loved all of them. I bought the first one because I like paranormal and I am, also, a photographer. Along with paranormal, there is a lot of very interesting history about the Shaker's. If you haven't read these books, start at the beginning. Great! I loved this one.

    Confused Taryn's marriage to Andrew has been a strong part of her backstory. Why in this book does she say they were never technically married? I thought they were married in a simple ceremony only four months after getting engaged? The author losing track of characters?

    Shaker Town Well written, a true ghost story. The author doesn't disappoint. Good reading for adults and young adults. I am looking forward to Taryn's next adventure.

    I have really been enjoying this whole series so far. I love the history, art and spookiness to them and also each book reveals more and more about the main character, Taryn, background.

    I can`t figure out why near the end of the book, when Mat was in the kitchen making sweet tea, he came back with mugs of hot chocolate. I enjoyed all four books, and would like to see a fifth.
