The second book in the Haven Manor trilogy.
New days are here at last.
The new couple here is moving fast.
We dare you to sleep or close your eyes
As you listen closely to dark night skies.
Building here is nothing new
Yet it is hard to know what's real and true.
This land will grant you all you wish
But you must sacrifice those you'd miss
At Haven Manor dreams do come true
But remember, nightmares are dreams too.

With a baby on the way, this newlywed couple is eager, as well as impatient, to start their newest adventure.

The days are quickly filled as they work to make their dreams come to fruition, while the nights are plagued with nightmares learning quickly that only those who have experienced the hauntings of Haven Manor can rescue them.
Their fate is in the hands of those who have faced the horrors the land possesses. But, they soon learn, not all is what it seems.
Nana: A term of endearment used in some countries for one’s Grandma. Some say the title is derived from the Italian word for Grandmother, Nonna. Another theory is that it stems from the word Nanny, i.e., someone who takes care of children.
Meet Olly’s nana, Ivy. It takes more than clean dentures, brandy, and bingo night to keep this one happy!Nana Ivy lives in Newhaven Crescent, where most of the other residents are past their expiry date and all kinds of batshit crazy, the kind of place where you hang your sanity up at the door.Being the matriarchal type, Ivy cares for the other residents as though they were kin, so of course, it’s of enormous concern when their veins begin to blacken and they start shedding skin, not to mention the glistening things crawling out of their hair. They’re pushing their luck, and Nana Ivy knows it.Did I mention she has a dark secret?Young Olly doesn’t know what to make of it when he comes to visit, but he’s about to find out there’s more to his nana than cough drops and slippers. Oh yes, he’s in for a long night.
The secrets here are seldom told
None are known from young to old
Songs and footsteps in the hall
Just hold your breath when whispers call
The air will chill, your body shakes
With every new soul, it will take
Listen closely to the ghosts
For they know what it aches for most
Beware of shapes the shadows make
For you will be the next it takes
