Not Brigadoon

No sing and dancing in this lost haunting village. A village that has been lost since 1800s, and Adam can see and visit. He starts to meet and talk to villagers. There is a romance , which is part of a story twist and great characters.

Haunting

I have come to really like all of Gefforey Sleight books and I do like how Howard Davey narrates them. This one was just as good as the others I've heard. Will listen to others of his/theirs as well!

A good read.

I really enjoyed this short story. It is more a ghost story rather than a horror and isn't the kind of book to keep you awake at night. There is a romantic twist in it and the characters are well developed. A really nice bedtime read. The narration by Howard J. Davey was excellent once again as it has been in all 3 books that he has done for Geoffrey Sleight. Highly recommended. *****
I was kindly gifted this book by the author and have left this voluntary review.

A good story

I found the story a little hard going and I didn't feel that the narration helped.
Other reviewers have enjoyed the book more, so perhaps I am just the wrong audience.

Nice enough ghost story

This turned out to be a 'nice' ghost story, rather than a frightning one. The story of a man, separated from his wife, who goes to find himself in a small cottage by the sea. The cottage is close to the shore where a village was swept away in the 19th century. He starts to see visions of characters from the village, and then starts to see the village itself, as it was. He actually goes to the village and meets and talks to the characters there. From there the story develops,,,, Pleasant enough story, but I'm afraid it was rather spoiled for me by the narration. It was spoken much too quickly, with some curious phrasing in places. There wasn't much of an effort made on characterising the various voices, or acting the story.

Epic Haunted Tale

Adam buys an old cottage by a cliffs edge where many years ago the Coathaven Village once sat. A fishing town that was hit by a horrible event, which left a big loss. (No spoilers)

Adam falls in love in a different time & tried to show others the village he is able to wonder around in & make new friends. Things are not as they seem though & Adam finds out what happened to Coathaven for himself.
A story with ghosts, love, creepy people, friendship, love loss & a trip back to the 1830s.

The storyline is very original & very well developed. The characters are clear & easy to build a relationship with, it definitely had me rooting for them!! I didn't see the ending coming either. I love stories that keep me guessing & are not 100% predictable!!!

I not only really enjoyed the story, but I loved the narrator as well. He made no mistakes, was clear & showed all the right emotions in each character. His voice is really wonderful & was perfect for the story.

I do recommend this book it's worth 2 hrs & 56 min!!
I do recommend the narrator as well!!

This book was given to me for free at my request and I am providing this honest review voluntarily.

The Lost Village

This was an entertaining tale of a village that was lost many years ago to a natural disaster. Adam Collins buys one of the few remaining cottages along the seacoast after being told that he needs to get away from his high pressure job. Soon, he starts to experience strange events that seem to be transporting him back in time.

The longer he lives in the cottage, the further he is drawn into the past. Is he truly living in that past or is he going crazy (as his wife suspects)? He meets local fishermen at the pub, falls in love with a young woman named Charlotte, and has mysterious encounters with an older woman who seems to be his landlady. But, when his wife and children come for a visit, they cannot see the village or any of the people Adam sees.

I enjoyed this short story and was reminded of the movie "Brigadoon", with the village appearing and disappearing at odd times. The author does a good job with creating the mysterious atmosphere and I always enjoy his works. The narrator did a great job and added a lot to my enjoyment of this audiobook. I was given the chance to listen to this audiobook by the author/narrator/publisher and chose to review it.

The Lost Village Haunting

Adam buys a cottage near the sea to relax. Only the missing village starts to reappear. As his soon to be ex-wife thinks he's going crazy seeing things that are not really their. She remains concerned for him and the state of the home. As he becomes more entranced by the village he may soon meet the same fate it did. The narration was nice. The story was not quite what I expected.

Great book!

Wonderfully bizarre story. You keep hoping it ends well despite his dual life in 2 different time periods.

Great book with fascinating storyline.
