The Legend of Viktor Luca


 



Sophie Winston blogs for

The Domestic Diva Mysteries

by Krista Davis





What is it about fall that brings out the worst in some people? I love the cooler air and the leaves turning color. Pumpkin lattes and pumpkin scones! I hear they're serving both at The Parlour. 

Tomorrow I'm starting to decorate the community haunted house. I got out some of my gear and it brought back memories of The Diva Haunts the House. It won't be long until the leaves crunch underfoot and a chill wind blows. When I walk along the brick sidewalks of Old Town, it's almost like that wind carries the voices of those who have gone before. Like they're crowding the sidewalks and brushing past me in the cold breeze.

You think I'm exaggerating? There are a lot of ghosts in a place that's over 200 years old. That was the year I heard the legend of Viktor Luca, who murdered a woman under strange circumstances and then disappeared. My former in-laws tried to track him down. I won't go into details, but they flew to Paris only to find-I shudder to think about it.

I'm hoping this haunted house will go better. After the mess at The Parlour, I could use a break from murder! But if you're in the mood for leaves that crunch underfoot, carved pumpkins, and spooky things that go bump in the night, you might want to read The Diva Haunts the House and you could win it here today!
