The Gambler's Daughter by Jillian Chantal
The Gambler’s Daughter by Jillian Chantal

In the cold, dark, winter months, one of life’s greatest pleasures is curling up with a good book to read.  This especially rings true during the holidays when our hectic schedules have us feeling like we don’t have a moment for ourselves, that’s exactly the time we need an escape to decompress.

This brings me to my next gift idea for the holidays —
a deliciously daring,
fast paced book to read!

A good book has the magical ability to pull us away from our daily routine and invite us in to a world of the author’s making.  As we delve into the story, our cares slip away as we embark on a new journey.

This is exactly the adventure I found when reading Jillian Chantal’s new book – The Gambler’s Daughter: The Gambler’s Inheritance Book Three.   Set in the 1960’s, Bernadette and her family live in New Orleans where they operate a detective agency and have booked passage on the Queen Mary. They were personally invited as guests on the ship as the Queen Mary makes her last voyage at sea and sets sail from England to her final resting place, Long Beach, California.

The ship has a long history of being haunted and Bernadette and her cousin Michel are on board to write a book about the haunted history of the Queen Mary. Bernadette, who has seen spirits all of her life, is well prepared to speak with the spirits and gather their stories for the book. What she is not prepared for is to meet a mysterious man surrounded by spirits haunting him, or for her first night at sea to begin with a murder on board the ship.  Accompanied by her family, Bernadette must deal with a haunted ship, a killer on the loose and the romantic feelings she is having for a man surrounded by dark spirits. What could possibly go wrong?

Chantal spins her yarn of a romance at sea, weaving through exciting ports of call through Europe, while the suspect list continues to climb. From the moment you open the book, The Gambler’s Daughter grabs you by the hand and pulls you into the story as seen through the eyes of the beautiful Bernadette as she struggles to define her coming of age feelings on relationships, while growing up in a time of free love, the draft and war.

Available on Kindle, this book is a bargain at $2.99 and can be purchased and delivered as a gift to any recipient of your choosing in only a few seconds time.  Even better, introduce someone or treat yourself to a Kindle, buy one and download all three of The Gambler’s Inheritance series on to the Kindle and give the gift of reading anywhere, anytime.

I can personally attest to the fact that Jillian Chantal is also every bit as delightful to speak with in person, as she is entertaining in her novels. I’ve had the pleasure to have Jillian on the Explore Your Spirit with Kala Show, where we chatted about Book One in this series – The Gambler. You can Listen to the interview here in the Explore Your Spirit archives. As the author of The Gambler’s Daughter and many other books, Jillian Chantal is the pen name for a lawyer who lives on the beautiful gulf coast of Florida. She writes romantic fiction for stress relief from the reality of her day job. The practice of law can be harsh and sometimes, the ugliness of the world is hard to put aside when the day ends. Jillian is an empath and the writing helps keep her mind on something besides the heartache she witnesses in her work as an attorney. She is married and the mother of two wonderful sons.
