Synopsis from Goodreads:
Madison LeBon is dead set against the dead.
Her fresh start at Oxford University is a brand new beginning. She finally has a chance to turn the page on her psychic powers and cumbersome voodoo heritage. Snakes, dolls, ghosts, and spirits:
When the tragic lovers in a painting—the subject of her first history class—begin to haunt her, she must accept her gift before life imitates art. The lovers warn her against their own nemesis, a Puritan from the English Civil War. Unfortunately, said nemesis is now going all homicidal on Madison.
College becomes more complicated when she falls hard for Rupert Vance, a troubled aristocrat and descendant of one of the characters in the painting. With the spirit of a murderer after her, Madison realizes that her own first love may also be doomed…
5 of 5 Oxford Whispers
First I have to say a HUGE THANK YOU to Marion Croslydon for allowing me to read and review her book. The story she has created using voodoo and history had me chomping at the bits while I was reading. I could not put it down I needed to see what happened next. Voodoo has always intrigued me but when using it with historical references it just totally blew my mind away. Let's face it who does not love a good history story with a little romance and suspense in it?
Madison Lebon is not like your ordinary college student. She longs to just be normal and start her life off somewhere where no one knows her. She comes from a family that has practiced voodoo and believes in the powers of magic. All Madison wants to do is move on and away from all that and start a new life free and clear from the dead. But with all things voodoo once a spirit wants your attention it will stop at nothing to get your attention. So baring this in mind she moves to England to attend Oxford University. It is there she realizes she can not escape her past.
As part of her history class project she is to study a painting and when this painting starts to speak to her she is determined to find out why it is haunting her and what the people in the picture want from her. As the mystery starts to unravel in front of her very own eyes Madison meets Rupert Vance who is an Earl and has something to do with the people in the picture. What will happen to Madison? Will she uncover what is going on? Will she unravel the secrets and the lies that keep haunting her from beyond?
This is a MUST READ and I need book two like ASAP!

Series: The Oxford Trilogy #2
Synopsis from Goodreads:
When death is a new beginning and love an old curse.
Still recovering from her last tango with the afterlife, Louisiana-born Madison LeBon struggles not only with her life as an Oxford postgrad but also with her budding love for Rupert Vance, aristocrat extraordinaire. One thing is certain, though: she won’t run away from her powers anymore. From now on she’ll face the music …
When a sixteenth-century ghost makes an appearance during a classical concert Madison attends and threatens her boyfriend’s family, she sets out to explore the dark mysteries of the Tudors, even if that means confronting their most royal and homicidal character.
Her plans take an unexpected turn when her voodoo heritage catches up with her. With horror, she understands what her fate was always meant to be.
The question now is: Can Rupert be part of it?
About the author:
In addition to being an author, I work as an entrepreneur, wife and mother-of-one but spend a good deal of time with books, DVDs and listening to my mp3 player; all for the sake of inspiration, of course.
My debut series, The Oxford Trilogy, has been a blast to write because I can indulge in my favorite types of music: Country and English rock.
My main goal as a writer is to make readers dream bigger and cause their hearts to beat a little faster.
Since my writing is all about sharing dreams and stories, I love connecting with fellow readers and authors.
