Summary

I interview my neighbors in our shockingly haunted town Wellesley, Massachusetts and I transcribe their tales for my blog Ghosts in the Burbs. Three women told me a horrific tale from their past and in doing so involved me in their horror. You may have heard part of this story before but I didn't tell you everything.... This is the complete story of Claire.

Most of this story is in the podcast

... but it is still awesome! I love Liz's voice and couldn't imagine anyone else narrating.

Rehash of podcast

This is one of my favorite podcasts, if not my No. 1, but I returned the book. With few changes or additions, this is just a retelling of the podcasts. There’s not really anything that’s new for Claire’s story, nor for Liz’s as a clairaudient. Not a disappointment in terms of storytelling, because the podcasts are already great stories, but not truly giving any new insight into Claire’s tale was a letdown.

Great story overall

I was a little let down that most of it was verbatim what the podcasts were, however the overall story is really intriguing. I think I just hyped it up in my head that it would have a bunch of new information when it really didn't. Liz's narration is great as always.

Don't Get The Book

Dont get me wrong. I love the author's podcast and was really excited to listen to this story in FULL as she put it in her podcast, but I can't find even a single thing that was not already on her podcast. Frankly it's a waste of money, just listen to her podcast, it has the full story. at times it felt like she took entire episodes from her podcast and copy/pasted them as chapter. Needless to say I'm very disappointed.

wonderful gem

I have never listened to the podcast and heard the ghostess of Two Girls One Ghost podcast mention this book and Liz's podcast. I made it to the book first. the audiobook is worth the money! The story is intriguing and I can't wait until the next installment!!

Ghoulishly addictive

I could not stop listening to this mesmerizing story, and it ended way to quickly. Now I'm hooked. Told with such believability by the author, that I often found myself gasping outloud, nodding in agreement and looking over my shoulder!! A must-read for any ghost story-lover, and Swellesley resident. Liz Sower, please write another book soon!!!

Haunted Housewives

Loved it, can't wait to hear or read Sower's next book. I appreciate her ability to develop characters personalities very quickly through colorful details. I love the suspense built over the course of each ghost story.

Riveting!

Liz's succinct and glorious illustration of life in Wellesley is thoroughly engrossing. Never having been to Wellesley myself, I feel like I have a primer if I were ever to visit! The stories, the characters, and her performance as the reader is completely riveting!
