I just finished The Para-Portage of Emily. Quite the page-turner!!
I was gifted a free copy by the author and found it to be a cleverly woven plot with descriptive characters you won’t soon forget. I’m not one to give out spoilers,
but if you like paranormal intrigue, hot romance, and mystery, you will love it. Looking forward to more works by Muffy Wilson as I’m sure they will be just as brilliant.

It looked like a magical castle rising from the mist in an enchanted forest. Oh, it was enchanted, all right, Emily thought to herself. And so very beautiful. It must have felt wonderful to be loved by such a man who honored his love, his wife, with such magnificence.
“To be adored like that is how dreams may come true, if one truly believes.” Emily said aloud, to no one but Barkley who looked at his love adoringly. “Yes, your love is constant, but the love of a man like that, took a woman like Amalya. Those days have passed with the centuries. Men and women are not like that anymore, Barkley. Love is a fleeting convenience, now, between professional people needing healthy sex. Ah, Barkley…but we can dream, can’t we?”
They mounted the steps to the massive carved oak front door. Emily leaned against the hand twisted and tooled wrought iron railing, just to catch her breath. The door was etched and carved with such majesty. She ran her glove-covered hand over the heavy wood, dipping her fingertips into the plumed design. And what dreams would you tell if you could talk, of the love and lovers that lived behind your protection? Emily thought as she scolded herself for waxing acting so nostalgic when she had a great deal to do.
She opened the door, only to see what she took as a shadow move into the library. Barkley stood starkly still when his usual pursuit was the kitchen to eat. His low quiet growl alarmed Emily—her eyes had not deceived her. No one had come down the drive, nor had she seen anyone but the man from the jetty walking the grounds. Barkley had not alerted to anything unusual so it could only be someone else who had come in the back of the house while she walked the mile and back to South Point. She was shaken at the prospect someone was in the library, but cast off the thought as nonsensical. Who would want to hurt her? It all passed through her head quickly, in but a second of reasoning.
“Hey, there, who are you? What are you doing here?” And with that, Emily’s brazen personality surfaced. She subordinated any marker of fear, and took control by walking boldly into the library. When she strutted into the library, there was no one there, just she and Barkley, who was standing decidedly well behind the protection of her feet. Barkley jumped upon the couch and claimed a higher vista around the room. But, in the same amount of time, Emily determined she was alone—starkly alone. But, this could not be. She was quite certain she had seen someone or something, a form or a shadow of a man moving within the foyer to the library. She was intent on finding what it was, but found nothing. There were no footprints, no melted snow droplets, nothing askew. It was perplexing.
There was no doubt about it and it gave way to her questioning herself and her confidence. And then she realized something…she still had her sunglasses on. Of course, coming in from outside created a margin of fog on her lens, creating the suggestion of a shadow.
Silly woman, she thought to herself as she saw Barkley curl into a completely unthreatened curl of fur on the library sofa. She was certainly taken by her clever imagination. There had certainly been a lot of fodder to stoke her creative imagination and it certainly had fueled it, indeed. She straddled the armrest and petted her little friend in an effort to regain her composure.
Yes, of course, that was it.
This is a story to savor. Ms. Wilson's descriptions are poetic and enthralling,
placing the reader in the midst of the story, and the relaxed pace of the story does not lessen the power of suspense. Shrouded in mystery, romance, and eroticism, "The Para-Portage of Emily" is a treat for the senses,
a haunting indulgence. Despite hints throughout, the ending still surprised me, and though satisfied,
I regretted the literary journey's end. Highly recommended. I look forward to more from this promising series. ~ By Jordan Stringfellow

I really enjoyed the Para-Portage of Emily... a skillfully and imaginatively told tale of love, lost and found. Mysterious twists kept me turning the pages until the end.
Love conquers all, AND it was hot!

Other Novels and Contributions:
Should John Grisham and EL James have a secret love child, she would no doubt pen legal thrillers with a luscious layer of the erotic. They would name their child Muffy Wilson and send her to Stephen King for some pointers in the paranormal.
Wilson, in the obliquely titled "The Para-Portage of Emily", interweaves these three diverse genres into a compelling, magic carpet of a novel that takes Emily Macque from Chicago to a bitter island estate two hundred miles north in the frozen sea. Emily is the striking junior partner in her father’s law firm, her mission, to settle the probate on an estate, her destiny to fall into the arms of Colin Jorgenson, a seaman haunted by a past love that torments his life.
Intelligent, well-written, with fully fleshed out characters and a story with more twists than a spiral staircase, "The Para-Portage of Emily" had me gripped until the very last page.
