Summary

He just spent everything on a house in disrepair, but he didn’t know someone was waiting inside. 

Tim Russell just put his last dollar on a handyman’s dream: a quaint but dilapidated farmhouse in New Hampshire. Newly single after a messy divorce, his plan is to live in the house as he restores it for resale. To his horror, as soon as the papers are signed and his work starts, ghosts begin to appear. A bone-white little boy. A woman covered in flies. Tim can’t afford to leave and lose it all, so he turns to his real estate agent Holly Burns to help him decide whether he has any shot at solving his haunted problem. Can they solve the mystery before he loses his investment…or maybe his life?

Excellent story and wonderfully narrated!

The author put together an expertly crafted plot. I personally didn't want to get out of the car each time I listened. The narration was on point and really brought the story to life. To address a prior review I just read, which drove me to write this one as I do not normally write many reviews. It seems they reviewed this book incorrectly as there was only one narrator and the author is a man. This book is an amazing story with plenty of interest!

What A Great Book

This is one of the best Ghost stories I have read/heard in a long time. Well written and well narrated. I highly recommend this book if you like a good ghost story.

Creepy story!

This audio was an excellent listen. The narrator was great and I can't wait to listen to the next book! This a story of a guy, Tim, who buys a fixer up after a really crappy divorce. This is no ordinary fixer upper though because it’s haunted and when I say haunted, this house is in a league of its own. Tim has to figure out the mystery of the woman who haunts the house before he winds up like all of the former owners. Dead. This world was so wonderfully written and narrated. I was so invested in these characters I genuinely got angry at a certain point of the book. I cannot wait to listen the next book, Dead Woman Scorned, when it comes out.

loved it

I enjoyed listening to this on audio. For me it is hard to get into a book about the supernatural, but this is the second book that I have read that I've loved. There was just enough spook that had me scared at times. When a angry ghost sets out to torment any one who dares to live in the house the ghost lives in things get Scarry..

Love a good ghost story

A man is starting over with a fixer upper farm house out in New Hampshire, but what he does not know is that it is already occupied! I love haunted house books, and this one did not disappoint, Although there are parts that can be a little wordy, oit was creepy and gave you, the reader, a chance to try to solve the mystery. I wish that the narrator was better, he really took away from the feel of the story. He had no inflection in his reading, leaving a lot to be desired. I plan on re-reading the book on my own to give it my own inflections!

Pretty much OK

The story travels fairly quickly and the people are interesting. But it’s not exactly high drama. One of the biggest problems was that it sounded like high school drama students reading the parts. I almost feel sorry for the author, because the people reading her book sound awkward.
