Lancaster House by Taylor Dean
Blurb: Zoe Grayson needs a change. So, she moves to another state, purchases an old, dilapidated 1920s Victorian Mansion, and sets out to restore it to its former glory. As she begins the restoration, she finds herself falling in love with the old house . . . not to mention its illustrious builder, Mr. Lancaster. Zoe becomes obsessed with the house as she discovers its secrets; hidden rooms, secret passageways . . . and a mysterious man who seems to think the house is his. Who is he? More importantly, how does he live in her home unseen and unheard?

The unexpected answers leave her reeling—and questioning everything she’s ever known. To her dismay, Zoe’s actions land her in the local psychiatric hospital, scheming for ways to return to Lancaster House . . . and the love of her life.

“I find it telling that you, yourself, knew you were losing your mental stability,” Doctor Channing said as he leaned back in his chair thoughtfully.

“The average person would think the same when faced with strange occurrences. I guarantee it.”

“You were slowly breaking down, Zoe. Surely you can see that.”

“I see nothing of the sort.” Her tone was defensive.

“What exactly did you think was going on?”

Zoe stared at the floor, a look of perplexity marring her features. “I wasn’t sure, but I was determined to get to the bottom of it. I didn’t believe in all that ghost gibberish, not for a second, and I certainly wasn’t about to let anyone scare me out of my home.”

“You do realize you were a very confused young lady, don’t you?”

Zoe seemed to ponder that for several moments. Then with renewed strength, she said, “No. No, Doctor Channing, I don’t agree. I wasn’t confused. I was thinking clearly and rationally. I’d decided to solve the mystery. Running away was not an option.”

“Zoe, think sensibly for just a moment. A house cannot repair itself. A burner cannot turn itself off. It was you doing everything. You were the only one in the house.”

“No, I wasn’t the only one in the house,” she whispered.
