Publisher's Description

Can a Legacy of Sadness be Broken at the Menger Hotel?
 
Visit historic American landmarks through the Doors to the Past series. History and today collide in stories full of mystery, intrigue, faith, and romance.

Young widow Hedda Krause checks into the Menger Hotel in 1915 with a trunk full of dresses, a case full of jewels, and enough cash to pay for a two-month stay, which she hopes will be long enough to meet, charm, and attach herself to a new, rich husband. Her plans are derailed when a ghostly apparition lures her into a long, dark hallway, and Hedda returns to her room to find her precious jewelry has been stolen. She falls immediately under a cloud of suspicion with her haunting tale, but true ghost enthusiasts bring her expensive pieces of jewelry in an attempt to lure the ghost to appear again.
 
In 2017, Dini Blackstone is a fifth-generation magician, who performs at private parties, but she also gives ghost walk tours, narrating the more tragic historical events of San Antonio with familial affection. Above all, her favorite is the tale of Hedda Krause who, in Dini’s estimation, succeeded in perpetrating the world’s longest con, dying old and wealthy from her ghost story. But then Dini meets Quinn Carmichael, great-great-grandson of the detective who originally investigated Hedda’s case, who’s come to the Alamo City with a box full of clues that might lead to Hedda’s exoneration. Can Dini see another side of the story that is worthy of God’s grace?
 

Editorial Reviews

"Allison Pittman’s newest novel is hauntingly delicious. I savored every page, from the colorful descriptions of San Antonio and the historic Menger Hotel, to the entertaining lessons in magic. Readers are transported to the past in a unique way, leaving it hard to decide which time period and set of characters is my favorite. The Lady in Residence is a thoroughly charming read that I highly recommend."
–Michelle Shocklee, author of Under the Tulip Tree

"This fun dual-timeline romance is a must-read for proud native Texans and those who’ve always longed to explore the home of the Alamo. Fans will delight in Pittman’s beautifully written prose, witty dialogue, and organically infused tour of San Antonio. As rich in history as it is in modern San Antonio’s vibrant culture. Bravo!"
–April W. Garder, San Antonio author of Christian historical romance

"Visions of a spirit that reside in a historic hotel are always on the top of my list for haunting heaven. The Lady in Residence will leave the reader turning pages faster than they can drift away into the darkness of the Menger Hotel. The vivid mystery is delicious and a few goosebumps might even find their way onto the reader’s arms. A high recommendation from me!"  
–Jaime Jo Wright, author of The Haunting at Bonaventure Circus and the Christy Award–winning, The House on Foster Hill

"The Lady in Residence is that perfect blending of history with gothic story that pulled me in and wouldn’t let go. Told in split-time, I was vested in each story and couldn’t wait to flip the page to learn what would happen next. The weaving of the two worlds worked, with a sweet romance and intrigue that left me wondering what was real. A book that readers of split-time stories laced with mystery will love."
–Cara Putman, award-winning author of Flight Risk

"Open the door to a breathtaking read but beware! Do not start reading The Lady in Residence at bedtime, or you’ll never get any sleep. Pittman’s deft hand at weaving the twin stories of Dini and Hedda kept me guessing while the growing romance kept me smiling. This book is a keeper!"
–Kathleen Y’Barbo, Publishers Weekly bestselling author of The Black Midnight and Firefly Summer
