Publisher's Summary

I live next to a haunted house.

I began to suspect something was wrong with the gothic building when its family fled in the middle of the night, the children screaming, the mother crying. They never came back to pack up their furniture.

No family stays long. Animals avoid the place. Once, I thought I saw a woman's silhouette pacing through the upstairs room...but that seems impossible; no one was living there at the time.

A new occupant, Anna, has just moved in. I paid her a visit to warn her about the building. I didn't expect us to become friends, but we did. And now that Marwick House is waking up, she's asked me to stay with her.

I never intended to become involved with the building or its vengeful, dead inhabitant. But now I have to save Anna...before it's too late for the both of us.

    "Not a fan"

    I really didn't like this narrator. The narrator's voice inflection was that of a robot and was so irritating that it was very hard to finish the book. I think the book would have been way more fun to listen to if someone else had narrated and put some passion into the words.

    "wish it had more spirit action "

    I love spooky stories, but I guess I like demons and dark spirits more than ghosts. they are much more scary. I guess it's because they are related to hell. still, I couldn't wait to see what happened next. and the narration was spot on. could really tell the different characters were speaking.

    Any additional comments?

    It wasn't as scary as I hoped, but it was still a very entertaining book.

    "Great story"

    I did not expect such an intricate story out of a 5 hour book! Excellent twists and action, likable characters and a fast moving plot.

    "Easy listening"

    Darcy writes easy haunted houses. Everything is always tidy and sweet, wrapped up in a bow.

    If you love cozy mysteries, then you'll love her cozy haunted house stories. Grab a cup of tea, sit and meander through this slightly frightning (but never TOO scary) haunted house.

    "A great story!"

    I really enjoyed the story, and the narrator was great, she really brought the characters to life. I wish the story would have been longer though it was really good.

    "Entertaining"

    I found myself drifting a couple of times not paying attention. The narrator was good, the story lacked interest and was full of holes and gaps. It starts off well, but lose its hold halfway through. It's got all the elements, execution was lacking.
