I really really enjoyed the information that was given about these legends. Some of the stuff i knew about but most of it was new to me. I love learning new things, especially when it comes to information that might be on trivia games, so this book was perfect for that. I wasn't able to listen to it in just one sitting, i needed to give my brain a break, but that's only because its packed full of info.

Honed by danger and haunted by the past, Lord Michael Kenyon finds it easy to risk his life for his country’s sake. But in the shadow of Waterloo, he faces a far more dangerous threat - the loss of his heart to the beautiful battlefield nurse who saves his life yet can never be his. Called a saint for her virtue and selfless courage, only Catherine Melbourne knows the tragic flaw at the core of her spirit. Then fate offers Catherine a fortune, a title, a heritage for her daughter - if Michael will impersonate her husband on a visit to a wild Cornish island.

Oh my goodness do i love this book. This whole series is excellent too. I have read the entire series previously, but that was many years ago now, and this one i have to say is one of my favorites. Yes some things are not realistic, but that's the great thing about a fictional romance, anything is possible! I love the strong women who still know how to be womanly!

I was very disappointed in this all the way around. The stories may have been scary at one point, but the way it was written and read it was more like listening to a clinical study on a subject that just isn't interesting. With the warnings/cautions/etc that seems to happen before the stories even began i was revved up a bit to get listening to the stories..... i was sooo bored i had to turn it off and listen to other things just to keep awake.

The first book of the this series i felt dragged on a little bit, but this one was completely awesome!!! It got right into the the story and i was hooked and wanted to know what was going to happen next and what was going to be done about it and who/what/when/where/how etc. This book jumped in right where the last book left off. I still want to know more about the how it all began and why, this book just whetted the appetite for more information while keeping it spooky/creepy. Makes you wonder what that tapping is in your own house late at night when you're trying to sleep.....

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a Gothic novella by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson, first published in 1886. The work is also known as The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. It is about a London lawyer named Gabriel John Utterson who investigates strange occurrences between his old friend, Dr. Henry Jekyll, and the evil Edward Hyde. The novella's impact is such that it has become a part of the language, with the very phrase "Jekyll and Hyde" entering the vernacular to refer to people with an unpredictably dual nature.

from movies and stories i have heard about Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde i expected it to be more scary. This one wasn't scary or spooky in the slightest. The way the book is written it's like a biography followed by an autobiography but with very little inflection. I don't know if back when this was first written that the whole unknown thing was more scary, but even though the base of a great spooky/scary story is there, now days it just isn't all the way "finished". The narrator did a great job!

Axel: When I left home to follow my dream of becoming a boxer, I was too young and stupid to know what I was leaving behind. These days I fill my world with the blood and sweat of a violent profession and the meaningless sexual conquests that come with it. A futile attempt to erase from my mind the only woman I’ve ever loved. Since I can’t let her go, I have no choice but to win her back. Olive: I’ve loved Axel my entire life. The boy next door. We didn’t talk about the attraction building between us, until one fateful night those sparks finally burst into flames.

There wasn't any surprises or shocking moments in this book. It really is a typical story of neighbors falling in love, finally acting on those feeling, misunderstandings followed by years of separation because of those misunderstanding, getting together, more misunderstanding breaking up and finally ending up together. Some of the misunderstandings to me seemed a bit ridiculous, but the characters being so young i can see how it could happen. Everything between the main couple seemed to go back to what they had in the beginning a bit too quickly, but overall i enjoyed the book.

I really loved these short stories. don't know why but when a new story started it took me a minute to realize it was a new story even though there was a great divide between the stories, it may have just been because it was all the same narrator. but anyways, I LOVED the different stories. The twists at the end of them really got me and i didn't see any of them twisting in those exact ways which i find very rare!!! If you like trying to guess what will happen and love being surprised, then this is for you!!!

Whispered rumors tickled the ears of the residents of an entire town for decades about the disturbing secrets of the old Halstead House, dating all the way back to the early 1920s. Most people didn't believe them. Several people will soon discover they should have listened.

I was expecting a mystery/thriller but it was more just a semi-thriller. there really wasn't anything unexpected with any of the characters or their actions, but if you're looking for a good story this is the book for you. I like it when i can just kick back and go along for the ride and this story accomplished that! Sometimes with the dates i got a little mixed up since there was a little bit of back and forth in the time line, and for the most part the dates being stated really didn't matter at all and could have been left out.

I got an email from audible that the chapters in this book were out of order and that i would need to redown it. So i redownloaded it and i think it's still out of order a bit. From what i could piece together it is a really good book and i did enjoy it even if i did get a little confused when it would flash for a quick tibit about the past that didn't seem to fit where it came in. the story didn't feel rushed like a lot of love stories that i have listened to.

I really enjoy how these stories interconnect so you don't feel like your missing anything between. It doesn't feel like the wishing well is as much a part of these stories like the original ones, if you blink you miss it, but the stories definitely keep your interest. I really enjoyed listening to these 3 and really hope that more come along
