Seventeen years after the death of her father, a door is opened to a new world, an Empire led by peculiar men and women called Salesmen – transporters of magical items. These Salesmen have the unique ability to travel from place to place, and even world to world, simply by stepping through the “right” door.
It turns out that Emily can “door travel” too, stumbling unplanned into kitchens and alleyways as her connection to the Salesman Empire is revealed. Fueled by the cryptic notes and sketches in her father’s journal, she discovers the real reason behind his death: he was targeted and assassinated by the Fringe, a terrorist group of rogue Salesmen.
After an attack that leaves an innocent woman dead, a rare book containing clues to the whereabouts of the Crimson Stone is missing. Emily is charged with getting it back. As she races through the Empire, she pursues John Templeton, the mysterious Salesman with extraordinary abilities, who seems to both help and undermine Emily at whim. On her heels, the Fringe… Find this ebook, paperback, and audiobook here: https://books2read.com/DoorToDoor
In this second book of the Door to Door Paranormal Mystery Series: relationships tested, friendships built, secrets revealed, and sacrifices made
Salesman Emily Swift is back – and so is Templeton! After learning about her supernatural abilities and finding the Crimson Stone, thirty-year-old Emily Swift returns home to Kincaid to rebuild a normal life with her boyfriend. As she struggles to get a handle on her “door traveling” energy, a strange warning squawks from her car radio: a rogue, terrorist group called the Fringe is still watching her.
Before she can figure out if the message is from a friend or foe, Emily’s quirky mother, Lydia, goes missing – and resurfaces in the Empire! As Lydia travels from city to city in this peculiar world, a wake of chaos is created. Add the murder of a hated art critic and a kidnapping into the mix, and things go from bad to worse. The Fringe believes Emily knows where the magical Crimson Stone is hidden, and they’ll stop at nothing to get their hands on it.
Friends Tara and Rabbit join Emily as they race against the Fringe to catch up with Emily’s wandering mother. Will Emily’s nemesis, the mysterious Templeton, join her in rescuing Lydia? What will it cost her? Is the price too high? Find this ebook and paperback here: https://books2read.com/ThroughTheDoor
Emily Swift: Reckless, unruly, unreliable… brave and big-hearted.
My name is Emily Swift and I’m a Salesman – one who’s currently persona non grata with the Empire’s leadership. I’m technically grounded, but I can still travel from place to place simply by stepping through a door. Any door.
I’ve been told I’m overconfident and take foolish risks. Allegedly, I’m unreliable. I’ve been accused of fibbing – okay, lying – and holding back the whole story if I think it’s for the best. But here’s the deal: I’m not the only one who’s been less than truthful. I’ve been lied to, misled, attacked, held captive by a crazy terrorist, and even had to rescue my mother from kidnappers.
The Fringe – a rogue group of violent Salesmen – just murdered a friend and tampered with the North Door. I’m going to do whatever it takes to bring them down, and I’m counting on my friends for help.
I’m even taking a chance on Templeton… Because this time I’m busting all the doors wide open. Find this ebook and paperback here: https://books2read.com/DoorsWideOpen
T.L. Brown’s debut novel [Door to Door] is a gem that sparkles with wit, colorfully crafted characters, edge-of-the-seat suspense, and just the right amount of humor. When the eminently human main character, Emily Swift, is shaken from her ordinary life into extraordinary adventure, she discovers powers and abilities she never knew she possessed. I look forward to learning how she develops and uses her newfound capabilities in future installations of the Door to Door series. I highly recommend this book.

Excerpt from Amazon review: Portal Travel at Its best, A Fresh Mystery – Tracy Brown has taken a well-loved genre, portal travel, which often occurs through the use of doors, and made it feel fresh, alive and exciting. Her main character, Emily Swift, is endearing, determined, humorous and brave enough to take on the adventure. She makes impetuous mistakes, thrown into such a crazy up-side-down reality, but that only makes her more human. On her 30th birthday, the gift of her father’s journal arrives on her doorstep, very early in the morning, with no return address and no footsteps in the freshly fallen snow to even indicate it had been delivered. Her dad died when she was a child. She loved him, but he was often gone as a traveling “Salesman”. She never knew what he sold. Here was his journal, and it sets into motion the unraveling of her family’s magical heritage and literally opens the door to a world in which she comes to learn who her dad really was in — The Empire. “Salesmen,” are, after all, very special people. They are confirmed in their powers by a Council, and given a top hat to help facilitate door travel. It seems that her father, a Salesman among Salesmen, was most likely murdered. There is treachery and a power struggle within the Empire. Emily is thrown into the middle of it. She meets Templeton, a strange individual in a top hat who has been following her. He is brilliant, worked with her dad, but is he a friend or a foe? And then there is Rabbit. He is part of an elite information gathering clan known as Rabbits. Yes, there is a very enchanting Alice-in-Wonderland quality to the tale. Her father’s journal helps her find clues to solve the mystery of her dad and of The Empire. These three MCs, and cast of characters that delight, both helpful and threatening, keep your intrigue piqued throughout the tale.
