Clarissa’s Warning is a haunted-house gothic mystery set on Fuerteventura, Canary Islands.



A lottery jackpot changes Claire Bennett’s life.
She buys an ancient stone ruin on the island of her dreams. Her mystic aunt Clarissa warns her of danger, but Claire pays no heed.
Soon after moving to the idyllic island, Claire is confronted by a mystery. As the sinister story of her home slowly uncovers, Claire enters a world of inexplicable events and ordeals. Someone or something doesn't want her there.
But is it really a curse, or is there something else behind the events?

Claire Bennett is pretty much like anyone else until she wins a lottery. Then she is free to pursue her dreams. One dream in particular is more of an obsession. She has a fond memory of a ruin, basically a pile of rubble, near a tourist area but in a deserted area. The present owner has plans to tear it down and refuses to sell it, even to the government. Why is he so resistant?
Claire persists until she offers a dollar amount he can not refuse. Then discovers that no local workers will take on the project.
This is a ghost story. A love story. A coming into one's self story.
It is the portrait of an area and an era, along with the tragic history of a building and a community.

While this is a slow paced read, it has depth and detail and triggers imagination. It is vividly descriptive. So much deception among all the secrets and lies. What is there to gain?
What is the motive?

The ending was shocking.

If you have any interest in history you will appreciate this book.
