Publisher's Summary

Over a century ago Illusionist David Berkeley committed suicide in his mansion by the sea, thus dooming his restless spirit to wander forever. Or so the local legend goes. Professor Rhys Davies, a part-time parapsychologist, is writing a book on California hauntings and he believes the crumbling ruins of Berkeley House will make a terrific chapter - if he can gain access to the house and grounds. The only obstacle is brooding cop and self-appointed caretaker, Sam Devlin. As obstacles go, Devlin is a big one. But you know what they say. The bigger they are, the harder they fall.

    "Better the second time"

    Normally I am a great fan of Josh Lanyon and Kevin R. Free, this time however, I struggled to get through. I don't remember listening to most of it.
    I did re-listen on a short trip I took and was able to appreciate this audiobook more. Don't use a credit on it.

    Story
    "Another paranormal thriller!"

    I've been eagerly awaiting another Josh Lanyon paranormal thriller since "The Ghost Wore Yellow Socks" (one of my all time favorites). Although short, this new story was a classic JL romance with some spooky overtones. As usual JL masterfully handles the romantic tensions between the main characters while also building interest in the premise of the story (the haunted mansion). The characters have back stories and are as charming (or roguish in the case of Sam Devlin) as usual. I liked this story a lot, the only complaint was that it was too short, which is understandable as it was part of a compilation. But I can see the possibility of a sequel, or even a series??? (Oh please tell me there is another book coming!)

    Any additional comments?

    I loved the fact that Sam wasn't movie star beautiful.
    Fabulous audio, and even though only 3 hours, I felt so connected with these two. Another wonderful audio with a fantastic performance.

    "Great Spooky Story"

    Another winner by Josh Lanyon and Kevin Free. This is a wonderful, spooky short story with a HFN romance. I listened to it in one sitting and was enthralled the whole time. The only bad thing is that it wasn't longer. I would love a sequel as it ends on a twilight zone type ending. Worth a credit.

    "Great story"

    Josh Lanyon does it again, this time in ghostly style.
    You cannot go wrong with any of his novels, and the synopsis does the story justice without giving anything away.
    And I really love the fact that Josh has a hand in picking the narrators for his books so your hearing the story how the author wants the characters to sound.
    I will reread / re-listen to any of Josh's books anytime. Not really a HEA author but always ends his stories in a satisfying way.

    "Great Story by a great writer"
    Would you listen to A Ghost of a Chance again? Why?

    Anything Josh Lanyon writes is great, never disappointed in plot, character development, and writing style. I automatically purchase anything Lanyon writes.

    "Kept me awake!"
    Any additional comments?

    Josh Lanyon is one of the few authors who's books I read/listen to over and over again just for the beautiful way she has with words, but not all of her many misteries are equally captivating. (Which is forgivable given how many stories she's written!) This one I loved! I made a mistake and started listening to it hoping it would lull me to sleep and ended up staying up in bed until 5 am after a 16 hour work day totally spooked and unable to stop listening! (and I do not spook easily!!)

    Josh did it again. I can't seem to get enough of Lanyon's works. This was a short and sweet one. I fully enjoyed it from beginning to end.

    "Free's Voice Gives Life to This Ghost Story"

    This is only my second audiobook, so I don't have a lot of experience to draw from, but I'm familiar with Kevin R Free's voice from the podcast, Welcome to Night Vale. I wasn't sure I was going to be able to disassociate his voice for the book, but Free made it easy. He's a gifted voice actor and very quickly, I forgot that it was only one person reading the different parts.

    The story itself was enjoyable but only okay. I'm a fan of Lanyon's work, but I don't think this is Lanyon's best work. The "ghost story" part of the story and the "romance" part of the story don't feel well blended; it feels like two different stories that have been mashed up together. As well, Lanyon has a habit of rushing endings and this is one of those stories. As I said, it's an enjoyable story, but its potential to be better leaves it slightly disappointing. Free does the best he can--and his reading is, I think, the best part--but overall, it's just okay.
