Publisher's Summary

Agatha isn't looking forward to Christmas. While other eight-year-olds are hoping for a pile of presents, she just wants her evil stepsisters to leave her alone. Summer and Rain have a cruel idea of what passes for fun, and it always involves tormenting Agatha.

When the three of them get stuck inside their house on Christmas Eve, the twins force Agatha to play a twisted version of hide and seek. But they aren't the only things hiding in the house, and someone is about to get more than they bargained for beneath the tree.

    Story
    "Hide and Seek is a short, quick and creepy listen."

    Agatha is an eight year old girl that has a divorced and remarried mother and step father. Her new father also has two young girls, a little older than her, but right around her age. These two step sisters are the stereotypical evil step sisters that plague Agatha's every waking moment. The story is told in the first person from Agatha's perspective. So we get to experience the torment in full force.

    I had a feeling that the ending was going to end with a twist but it was not the twist I thought it was going to be. This always tells me that the author, Caryn Larrinaga, has real talent as to not give everything away in a straight forward manner. Making the paranormal aspect hit me in the face with a huge face palm.

    For a horror story it was pretty tame and focused almost solely on the emotional torture that Agatha has been going through. Making it a really good psychological suspense thriller.

    I really enjoyed Jessica McEvoy's voice. Female narrators, at least the ones that I have listened to, tend to have a very youthful, high pitched voice that do have their place. McEvoy does not have this, at least not in this story, she uses a soft-spoken, almost a loud whisper throughout. That was perfect for keeping the story on the creepy side.

    Story
    "An Awesomely Dark Christmas Tale/ Loved it!"

    I loved everything about "Hide and Seek." This was an awesome short story by Caryn Larrinaga. It was dark, a bit scary and thrilling and I hope there's more to come like this. The setting was great and the characters were believable. I loved Agatha, and her step sisters Summer and Rain were down right scary. Also, the details were impeccable.

    This author is definitely on my 'to watch' list. I have a feeling that there's a lot more awesomeness to come. Excellent!

    Jessica McEvoy's narration nailed it. She was steady with spot on voice inflections that put the listener (me) right there. It was edge of your seat. She was THE perfect reader for this story. Her performance was very impressive.

    "LOVED THIS!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Hide and Seek to be better than the print version?

    Of course.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hide and Seek?

    The dolls.


    Have you listened to any of Jessica McEvoy’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I never have. She was excellent!!! I could picture her narrating Stephen King audio books.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Neither. But it was intense!


    Any additional comments?

    I wish it were a bit longer but honestly, it was a great story! Well worth the listen!This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audiobook Blast.

    Story
    "Entertaining Christmas Tale"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Sure. It's a fun listen for anyone wanting to hear something a little different at Christmas.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hide and Seek?

    When Agatha was exploring the attic.


    Have you listened to any of Jessica McEvoy’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I'm familiar with Jessica's work on The No Sleep Podcast. She's a fantastic narrator. I don't think there's a character that Jessica can't do. She's incredibly talented.


    If you could take any character from Hide and Seek out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    The toy Santa from the attic. You'll have to listen to the story to know why!
