When her courage waivers, she starts to run and soon is lost, miserably lost. She finds her way to Papa Frog and he shows her what Mama Frog means." -- Amazon website.

By Sarah Glenn Marsh

“Dare Chase doesn’t believe in ghosts. But as the host of Attachments, her brand-new paranormal investigation podcast, she knows to keep her doubts to herself if she wants to win over listeners.

As Dare is drawn deeper into the mysteries of the estate, she’ll have to rethink the boundaries of what is possible.
