Publisher's Summary

I interview my neighbors in our shockingly haunted town Wellesley, Massachusetts and I transcribe their tales for my blog Ghosts in the Burbs. Three women told me a horrific tale from their past and in doing so involved me in their horror. You may have heard part of this story before but I didn't tell you everything.... This is the complete story of Claire.

Love the story but

It is an edited version of several podcast episodes. That being said, Liz is an awesome narrator and I love her Ghosts in the Burbs podcast and can’t wait for more!

Even better than the podcast, somehow.

I love the podcast Ghosts in the Burbs and was stoked to hear Liz had turned some of the episodes into a book. Listening to Claire via Audible was kind of like listening to a nice, long Ghosts in the Burbs podcast - but somehow even better than that. Liz is so talented. She writes great stories that are creepy and scary without being gross or bodily horrifying. She's also a great reader of her stories - she knows how to read her own stuff and engage listeners in an authentic way.The stories are unique, but Liz is familiar in that she presents the character of herself as a normal person with normal ups and downs (for the white/suburban/middle and upper middle demo, admittedly). The stories are also realistic in that people's reactions to extraordinary circumstances are believable - there is no mellow-drama here (thank goodness). This is a great book, well worth your time - and so is the podcast. I bought the ebook AND the audio book because I like it so much. I can't wait to see what Liz does next - I will buy it sight unseen.

Most of this story is in the podcast

... but it is still awesome! I love Liz's voice and couldn't imagine anyone else narrating.

Amazing author

I have been following this authors podcast, Ghost In The Burbs, since the beginning. Her writing style is clever and very relatable! She has the added gift of being an amazing story teller. She reads her own work; but be careful, you'll be caught up in the town of Wellesley before you know it.

Claire??

I enjoyed the book of course but it seemed like a repeat of the podcast. There was little mention of Claire. I mean there was some dialogue from her but just thought there would be more. Hopefully there will be another book. This one ended abruptly.

OMG!! I Love it!!

I can’t get enough of the haunted tales of of this city. I am so glad it was read by the author she can really take me there. I listen to her podcasts constantly playing old episodes until a new one come out. Liz Sower you ROCK!!!!’

Waste of money

This is ridiculous, it's some of her podcast episodes rolled into one 4 hour episode. Except, you know, not for free.

It stops at a ridiculous part and offers nothing new. It has a few lines from Claire's perspective and that's it.

Poor form liz.
