Julie kissed Mark at the office Christmas party. She doesn’t seem to remember but he’s not been able to forget. What better day to jog her memory than Valentine’s Day? Calum’s found the girl of his dreams on the internet. Trouble is, he’s not been completely honest about himself. Tonight he’s meeting her for the first time but will it also be the last? Nathan’s organized his usual Anti-Valentine’s party for the office singletons. Sophie’s going - again. Though this year, if she gets her way, they might just be leaving together.

This is the second book I’ve listened to by Mark Dunn and I’ve enjoyed both. There’s been a couple of embarrassing moments that I’ve literally laughed out loud walking down the street listening on my headphones! Will now be looking for another of his books!

When siblings Dan and Hayley Daley inherit their late grandmother's derelict Victorian farmhouse, it seems like a dream come true. All they have to do is fix the place up and sell it for a tidy profit! Except - as anyone who has renovated an old house knows - things are never that easy. The walls are rapidly crumbling around them, the architect is a certified lunatic, the budget is spiraling...and then there's the disturbingly intelligent cow to worry about.

I was really looking forward to this book but i just couldn’t get past the narration. I agree with another reviewer in that the voice was far too posh for the character. I very rarely give up on a book but unfortunately I have this time. Given 3 star review as wasn’t fair to give 1star when I haven’t listened to the whole thing.

Thomas Pendleton loves his wife, Ann, and six-year-old son, Seth, more than anything, but his job often makes him an absent husband and father. One day, after Thomas leaves on a business trip, his wife and son are killed in a car accident. When a cosmic storm enters Earth's atmosphere, scientists are baffled by its composition and origins, but not nearly as much as they are by the storm's side effect: Anyone who has died and chosen not to cross over is suddenly visible.

I'll probably be having nightmares tonight! Finished this book in one day. Just couldn't stop listening until I found out the ending. Jake Urry's narration adds an extra chill to the story and he's fast becoming my favourite narrator.

Emma didn't know how long he hid, silent and unmoving, in the large Victorian wardrobe to the side of her single bed. She didn't know how long he peered out, salivating and drooling, between the two heavy dark oak doors, and watched, mesmerized, as she slowly drifted into fitful sleep. She didn't know what time he pushed the doors open and crept towards her in the drab grey darkness of the night.

This has got to be my favourite book! Completely gripped at all times. I didn't want this book to end. John Nicholl's writing and Jake Urry's narrating are a match made in heaven. I wouldnt change a thing about this (except maybe make it longer so I could enjoy even more) I cannot recommend this book enough!

Dr. Siegfried Klein has vanished on a mysterious pilgrimage to an abandoned infirmary in the ghost-town of Moonville. The locals in the surrounding areas are tight-lipped, hostile to outsiders. Local legend has it that the old Sick House is packed with spirits, none of them friendly, and that to set foot in it is to enter Hell itself.

Wasn't what I expected at all. Found it quite slow to begin with and struggled to get into it. Finally started getting interesting towards the end but apart from maybe a chapter of 'scary' never really scared or gripped me. Jake Urry is such a great narrator, he definitely made it better and without him I doubt I'd of finished this book.
