Buying houses, renovating and re-selling is a common practice today, but when Julie and Brad buy a dilapidated historic home to flip, they get much more than they bargained for. This is an interesting and unusual ghost story, that in many ways is a story about the perseverance of love. It has some really creepy parts, some sad parts but also some tender, touching parts. The author managed to create scary without the blood, guts or gore and combines the past with the present in this story very well. Cash created characters you can relate to, and the personalities and the back story of the ghosts,Tessa and Gerald, is really captivating. The narrator of the audiobook does an excellent job on both the male and female voices, the different accents and inflections he uses bring the characters and story to life. This is a well written, enjoyable story containing twists, creepy tension and great characters. I received the audiobook from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Avid book reader, returning to audio books for bedtime stories. Into horror, sci-fi and thrillers. Love multi narrator stories!
This was a fun book to read, if you enjoy haunted houses and those "Flippin Houses" on TV. Needless to say, they were trying to flip a haunted house and the lady ghost had a major crush on the living husband. Wh, great narration.at I didn't understand after they got rid of the ghosts, what happened to the "dark energies"? All in all, it was fun to listen to

This novella is an interesting ghost story that switches from past to present, telling two stories in one.
The narrator did a lovely job bringing the characters to life.
Romantic, creative, suspensful
I enjoyed so many characters in this book and found myself wishing it had been longer so I could learn more about them. If I had to choose my most favorite character...I would say I loved Tess and Brad but not together.
He's so great. I can totally follow him and which character he's portraying. It was always funny when he performed Tess but I think he was the most solid as Brad. Really he gave a solid performance for all of the characters. Even Mr. Wilson.
If I had the time to listen in one sitting then it would've been. I listened to it in 2. It was short enough for 1 sitting but I wished it had been 2...3....4 times longer b/c I would've liked to have it last.
Thank you for writing this book! I loved Stillwell and this book reminded me of that. I was sad to see that book end and this book had more suspense but equally as enjoyable characters!
Horrible narration - terrible voice and mispronounced words. Story; While not the worst ever, it was silly and simplistic. That of either an inexperienced or not very good writer (although kudos for the effort). My main emotion while listening to it was mild annoyance. An across the board miss.
