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.

This book was so amazing!

This is the most original haunting story I have ever read. It is not a haunted village the whole village is a haunting it had been lost back in the 1800s and for some reason only Adam can see it. At first he is eagerly excepted when he walks into the end, but Adam doesn’t know what is in store for him and what his new friends are capable of. This book as I said it’s so good I highly recommend it to anyone who likes haunted stories. I loved it

Haunting or time travel

Adam Collins buys an old cottage just outside of a small fishing village. Things are not as they seem though. The village and the fishermen are seated in a past timeline. No one else can see the people Adam sees. He becomes embroiled in the ghostly village and its people even to falling in love with a woman long dead when the whole village collapsed into the sea killing everyone. Adam knows what he sees, but is it his stressed mind playing tricks. Short and sweet story with good narration.

Exciting story

This is a great story! Takes you away to another (lost) world. We were gripped to the end and listened to it in 2 sittings. There are some wonderful descriptions of the worlds Adam inhabits and characterisations, perfectly read by the narrator. Makes me want to listen to more!

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 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.

I didn’t want this to end!

This is a fairly short story of a man, Adam, who has retired and decided to buy a rundown cottage near the beach...this cottage is the only remaining property of a fishing village hundreds of years earlier. The village had been destroyed by a storm and collapsed into the sea. As Adam settles into his new, laid back life, he plans on renovating the cottage so his kids can visit; he also decides to pursue his dream of painting seascapes. That’s when things start happening...no spoilers...just know that you won’t expect the ending! I voluntarily accepted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Intriguing haunting mystery

I truly loved this book and the storyline behind it. I loved the intrigue and mystery as well as the twist that I did not see coming. I was hooked from the beginning till the end.The narration by Howard J. Davey was spot on he brings the book to life drawing you into the characters and story. I highly recommend this book if you love haunting tantalizing mysteries. I received this book at my request and I am glad I did. I am leaving my honest review of this phenomenal story here of my own volition.
