Publisher's Summary

Still grieving over the sudden death of his lover, antiques dealer Flynn Ambrose moves to the old, ramshackle house on Pitch Pine Lane to catalog and sell the large inventory of arcane and oddball items that once filled his late uncle's mysterious museum. But not all the items are that easy to catalog. Or get rid of...

The Haunted Heart series. Four seasons. Four ghosts. Two hearts. Winter. Since Alan died, Flynn isn't eating, isn't sleeping, and isn't spending a lot of time looking in mirrors. But maybe he should pay a little more attention - because something in that 18th Century mirror is looking at him.

**This title contains gay erotic content**

    "Great story"

    Super story- very well narrated. I especially like the slow building romance between the characters.

    Story
    "Lanyon is hit and miss... This is a miss!"

    This book continues my hit and miss with Lanyon's work. I enjoyed "The Ghost wore Yellow Socks" and her "Holmes and Moriarity" series, but hated "Adrien English".

    This particular book was a carbon copy of the set up of "The Ghost wore Yellow socks" in that we had two men in a rickety old house in the middle of nowhere, both of them with emotional issues and a something that forces them to work together. In this story it wasn't a body in the bath, but dealing with loss of loved ones and a haunted mirror that bought the protagonists together.

    I found the plot really slow and repetitive. It was in 'done before and better' ghost story territory and the romance was barely there. Even though Flinn and Kirk spent a lot of time together and EVENTUALLY(5 hrs into a 6hr audiobook) they had a tumble, there was no flirtation or rapport between them, let alone romance. So, this, like "Adrien English" left me feeling flat and unsatisfied.

    The only saving grace was the the narrator Lee Samuels was really good which made me listen to the end when. If i'd have been reading i would have DNF'd

    Story
    "Enjoyable, but not deep."

    From the outset, I found the storyline easy to listen to and with a flow that is perfect for audiobooks. Not too many characters to fuddle the mind while getting to grips with the goings-on. The narrator is excellent, his voice being clear and sure of his craft. A few predictable happenings, but overall, a good and reliable story. I would have liked to have seen a little depth to the plot (was there one?), but the only real negative I can offer was that it was written for the fast sell seeing everything was on the surface.

    Story
    "Perfect choice for Halloween"

    This is another winner from Josh Lanyon. This is the first book in a series. It is primarily a ghost story with a underlying budding romance. But I think this is going to be a slow burn romance, similar to the Adrien English series. Both men have demons to tackle and they are not really address (or in Kirk's case even revealed) in this book. But the ghost story is very compelling and I was freaked out a couple of times. The narrator does a great job with all the voices and the inherent creepiness. Can't wait for the next book. Definitely worth a credit.

    Story
    "Gripping psychological ghost story"
    What made the experience of listening to The Haunted Heart: Winter the most enjoyable?

    The story is compelling and Lee Samuels' narration beautifully conveys all the suspense and emotion.


    What other book might you compare The Haunted Heart: Winter to and why?

    Josh Lanyon's "Dark Farewell," in which spiritualism is the focus: can we communicate with the dead?


    What does Lee Samuels bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Emotional context; drama. He made the characters, including a dead one, come alive.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was mesmerizing.


    Any additional comments?

    A full-blown ghost story and mystery. It raises the question does Josh Lanyon believe in ghosts? Whether or not he does, even if you are a total materialist, at least while you're listening, he'll make a believer of you.
    And it made my six hour road trip fly by.

    "Did you see that ghost?"

    A new twist for Josh and I cannot wait for the next installment.

    This is a ghost story, but not about a ghost hunter.
    Flynn's pain and heartache call to a ghost caught in a mirror, can they figure out who she is and how to help her move on? and more importantly: Can Flynn learn to love again......?We'll have to wait and see.

    What made the experience of listening to The Haunted Heart: Winter the most enjoyable?

    The story is fantastic: funny, poignant, suspenseful, with wonderful, memorable characters and lots of food for thought. Adding to that Lee Samuels' narration, which is great, made for a very enjoyable listening experience. I'll definitely listen to this audio again.

    Story
    "Dark and suprising, another great title by Lanyon."
    If you could sum up The Haunted Heart: Winter in three words, what would they be?

    Dark currents, surprising.


    What other book might you compare The Haunted Heart: Winter to and why?

    Hmm, can't quite find a comparison. Similar feel to Ghost Who Wore Yellow Socks, but with a paranormal plot.


    Which character – as performed by Lee Samuels – was your favorite?

    Kirk, he's a bit different than Lanyon's usual characters. He's dark, edgy, experienced, war-torn, tough, but seems to have a big soft heart.


    If you could take any character from The Haunted Heart: Winter out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Hmmm, not sure either one would make a great dinner conversationalist really. Maybe the deceased crazy uncle. I have plenty of questions for him.


    Any additional comments?

    Once again, so many interesting layers in this book, that I can't wait to unveil the next book!
