A Ghost of a Chance | [Josh Lanyon]

A Ghost of a Chance

Over a century ago Illusionist David Berkeley committed suicide in his mansion by the sea, thus dooming his restless spirit to wander forever. Or so the local legend goes. Professor Rhys Davies, a part-time parapsychologist, is writing a book on California hauntings and he believes the crumbling ruins of Berkeley House will make a terrific chapter -- if he can gain access to the house and grounds. The only obstacle is brooding cop and self-appointed caretaker, Sam Devlin.

    "Better the second time"

    Normally I am a great fan of Josh Lanyon and Kevin R. Free, this time however, I struggled to get through. I don't remember listening to most of it.
    I did re-listen on a short trip I took and was able to appreciate this audiobook more. Don't use a credit on it.

    "Great story"

    Josh Lanyon does it again, this time in ghostly style.
    You cannot go wrong with any of his novels, and the synopsis does the story justice without giving anything away.
    And I really love the fact that Josh has a hand in picking the narrators for his books so your hearing the story how the author wants the characters to sound.
    I will reread / re-listen to any of Josh's books anytime. Not really a HEA author but always ends his stories in a satisfying way.

    "Great Spooky Story"

    Another winner by Josh Lanyon and Kevin Free. This is a wonderful, spooky short story with a HFN romance. I listened to it in one sitting and was enthralled the whole time. The only bad thing is that it wasn't longer. I would love a sequel as it ends on a twilight zone type ending. Worth a credit.

    Story
    "Another paranormal thriller!"

    I've been eagerly awaiting another Josh Lanyon paranormal thriller since "The Ghost Wore Yellow Socks" (one of my all time favorites). Although short, this new story was a classic JL romance with some spooky overtones. As usual JL masterfully handles the romantic tensions between the main characters while also building interest in the premise of the story (the haunted mansion). The characters have back stories and are as charming (or roguish in the case of Sam Devlin) as usual. I liked this story a lot, the only complaint was that it was too short, which is understandable as it was part of a compilation. But I can see the possibility of a sequel, or even a series??? (Oh please tell me there is another book coming!)

    "Great Story by a great writer"
    Would you listen to A Ghost of a Chance again? Why?

    Anything Josh Lanyon writes is great, never disappointed in plot, character development, and writing style. I automatically purchase anything Lanyon writes.

    Have you listened to any of Kevin R. Free’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    My first time with this narrator and he is one of my favors now. There are not many as good as him that is why I cherish the good ones.

    It made me very happy how good it was and satisfied for how well matched this book was to the narrator.
