Publisher's Summary

Fleeing a troubled past, Sarah Faust has found the perfect place to begin a new life. Tucked away on a charming side street and surrounded by lush grounds, the neglected 300-year-old townhouse in the port city of Charleston offers a refuge and a place to start over. But all is not as it seems at Five Rue Lane, and she soon finds that her new house harbors something that has been there for a very long time. Something that refuses to stay buried. In A Haunting, L. I. Albemont brings us parallel tales of old and modern horror, weaving colonial era events into a modern ghost story you won't soon forget.

    "Animals and children"

    This book was a huge disappointment to me. I like a good ghost story very much, and I like a good home rehab book very much, especially if it's spiced up with some bumps in the night and creepy atmosphere. In other words, I like a nice cozy ghost story.
    This book sounds like that's exactly what it is both from the description and from the reviews that I read, but in my opinion a cozy ghost story does not torture and abuse either children or animals. It's very disappointing because the home rehab and atmosphere of the town in general were all one could ask for from a cozy. This just made the ugliness of the savagery directed at the animals and children all the more jarring. If you like animals (especially cats but also dogs) and/or children, I advise you to give this book a miss.

    "A little predictable"

    l enjoy a good ghost story with minimal violence and this book fit the bill. It was predictable in places and not enough back story in other places.
    I felt the last chapter didn't really line up with the rest of the book.
    For me the last chapter was WTF.

    If you enjoy these type ghost stories I highly recommend Family Plot by Cherie Priest.

    "Needed more"
    Would you try another book from L. I. Albemont and/or Teri Schnaubelt?

    A Haunting overall was a good story and keep me listening. I enjoyed the narrator and thought that the characters were genuine and likable. Additionally, I enjoyed the detailed description of Charleston and the mix of old and new. I just wish there were more to the story and how certain characters were involved in this tale.


    If you’ve listened to books by L. I. Albemont before, how does this one compare?

    This was my first experience with this author.


    What about Teri Schnaubelt’s performance did you like?

    Enjoyable and talented narrator.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Sure

    Story
    "Not really an ending..."

    Book was good, narrator was excellent (as she always is) but there was no ending. It felt like the end of a chapter not the end of the book. I hope the epilogue was not a sneak peek of a #2 with new characters, Id like to know what happens with these characters first. Overall I did really enjoy the book, it held my interest all the way through...and beyond.

    "Fun and Interesting Story"

    Overall, I enjoyed the story although it ended a bit abruptly. I liked the characters and the story development. The narrator's Southern accents were better than most--not too over-the-top twangy like some tend to be.

    "Pretty Much A Lifetime Movie"

    Ugh.

    I knew I'd wasted my time when I heard "she-mullet."

    Not much of an ending, lots of pointless events.

    Hokey plot.

    Story
    "Horror?"

    the story is a little bit interesting which is why I was able to finish this book. But as a hardcore horror fan looking for something to Spook me up a little, I was extremely disappointed in this. nothing was ever scary or spooky nor did it get my hairs standing at any point. It's worth the read if you just need a story. If you're looking for horror, find yourself a better book.

    "loved it"

    I loved this story. it kept my interest. I really like "haunting" stories if they are not poorly written and sound silly. this story, in my opinion was written very well, not so far fetched that it was silly, and the narrator was very good. I am going to look for more books by this author. I would recommend this book!

    "Enjoyable but.."

    The story overall was enjoyable, but there were too many openings to subplots without end, feeling more like fluff than necessary action or detail, and the ending was anti climactic. I don't like stories that don't have an end - this one does have one, it's just wasn't a big bang of an ending.
