Publisher's Summary

Nothing will keep Louisa from her great-aunt's fortune. Except perhaps a phantom who turns out to be a most eligible bachelor. 

Although Louisa Banner insists she is not the least bit superstitious, she cannot help her misgivings when her family announces she must spend October with her great aunt in a rundown Welsh castle riddled with tales of ghosts. The family hopes Louisa will endear herself to her aunt enough to win a grand inheritance. Louisa’s only wish is to avoid a run-in with any of the phantoms spoken of by the local villagers. When Louisa stumbles upon a forgotten graveyard, and a man whose name comes directly from a tombstone, she isn’t certain whether to run away in terror or stay and get to know the handsome spirit. 

Erasmus Grey is cursed, and not only because he sometimes hears the voices of his dead grandparents. While most men would count it a blessing to be a wealthy, eligible bachelor, Ras is absolutely panic-stricken at the idea of finding a bride. Rather than succumb to the matchmaking mothers of London, he retreats to an old family cottage with no plans to return to society. Though he manages to keep his presence in the country a secret, coming upon a lovely young woman during one of his rambles nearly undoes all his careful work. But when he realizes Miss Banner thinks him a ghost, Ras wonders if he might have found a way to cure his own fears.

Absolutely Delightful!!!

The Seasons of Change books have been delightful. I've read a handful of them and have to admit that I really have been looking forward to reading them all, but this one kept catching my eye because of the haunting aspect and the time of year it came out. I'm not a scary and spooky story type of person. I don't like scary movies. Nope! Not for me at all! Thank you very much! But being a fan of Sally Britton's books and knowing what reading her stories entails for me, I thought this would be a delightful book and have some fun mystery to it. I was not disappointed at all. I loved every minute of it. I actually did a mix of listening and reading to it. The narrator of the audiobook has such a soothing voice that I loved listening to her read the book.

Louisa's family situation isn't the best and she finds herself being shipped off to a great aunt's home by herself. She isn't sure what to expect but finds her situation better than expected. Her aunt is kind and caring. Finding time to explore the area, she runs into Erasmus Grey. They have a couple fun interactions and first meetings. I giggled at the creativeness of Sally Britton of their initial acquaintance and developing friendship. It was delightful.

The haunting aspect, or rather the ghosts aspect was quite fun. Delightful is the word I would use for it. I know I used that word about Louisa and Erasmus's friendship, but I think it's a great word to describe the characters and the story of this book.

The mystery and slight suspense (not scary) of the book had me turning the pages and listening during every spare minute that I could. If you enjoy fun books and stories that pull you into them, not letting go even after the last page, this book is one I would recommend for your reading pleasure. There are some other characters aside from the main two and the ghosts, some of them I liked and others I didn't care for. But then again that was their purpose. I'll let you read and discover who those characters are. ;-)

Content: Clean. Ghosts are some of the characters but they aren't malicious or scary. Well written!

Happy Reading!!!

A sweet and light romantic read

The story was enjoyable and the reader was lovely to listen to. I listened to it at normal speed because I wanted to just soak in her beautiful accent. I love escaping through Sally Britton's sweet regency era romances.

Such a delight!

I loved Ras and Louisa! What a fun and delightful story. I loved the warm hearts of both main characters and the humor they shared. The mystery of the treasure was so much fun and how it moves the storyline and the romance along as well. This book will definitely be one I share with my daughters who are also avid readers.

The narration was also very well done.

Magical Story

An ancient castle, a forgotten graveyard, a ghost (or couple of them), a lost treasure – it all makes this story charming and unforgettable!
The narration is as magical as the story itself!!!

So Refreshing!

A sweet growing romance! Such a refreshing change from the main characters always having to hate each other first before falling in love! The main characters are positive and kind - and happy! The humor was subtle yet thorough. The romances are sweet and naturally occurring. I enjoyed the fun of the ghosts in this one. I have read many of her books and will continue to seek more out.

Enjoyable

Can’t go wrong with this author for unique, clean, and well-written stories. I’m off to find another one I haven’t listened to yet. I only wish these shorter stories were a little less expensive because they go so fast. Still, keep them coming!

A fun twist on a regency romance

Loved this twist on a regency romance. I loved the relationship between Louisa and Ras. I love that she is able to look beyond his struggles and see the man inside. Sally always does such a beautiful job weaving her stories and this one is no exception! I loved the narrator as well. She did a wonderful job with each character.

One can't go wrong with this one :)

A Haunting at Havenwood was such an interesting read! I loved this spooky listen (even though we are not in that season anymore). Funny thing is, I consider myself a scaredy-cat sort of person, but if one doesn't listen to the first time the ghosts appear really late at night, then everything flows just nicely. Yes, there are mentions of legends, druids, and several meetings at a cemetery, but none detract from the story nor do they make this story fall into the "horror" genre at all. //

Miss Louisa Banner and Erasmus 'Ras' Grey were the perfect main characters in this story, as were they perfect for each other. I loved their meet-cute, the ghost charade, and watching them slowly fall for each other was just the cherry on top. I thought it wonderful how they helped strengthen each other's weaker points as well as how they complemented the other and accepted them just as they were, flaws and all. The fact that Ras was a Gothic author upped the enjoyment factor for me, and I loved how good he was with words. //

The narrator did a great job of bringing both of them, as well as all the rest of the cast of characters, to life. She was on point with Ras's stuttering (she made my heart go out to him and all the mockery he suffered in his life), as well as did a perfect job with the accents, especially the Scottish one from the ghost (kind of hard to follow for a non-native English speaker, but still good!). Of course, her performance of Ras and Louisa's love story was excellent and had me looking forward to their next interaction. 🙌 //

Overall, this is the kind of story that has a bit of everything for everyone: sweet romance, ghosts, old legends, and a mystery treasure. One can't go wrong with this one. ~ 5 stars
