Publisher's Summary

Fleeing a troubled past, Sarah Faust has found the perfect place to begin a new life. Tucked away on a charming side street and surrounded by lush grounds, the neglected 300-year-old townhouse in the port city of Charleston offers a refuge and a place to start over. But all is not as it seems at Five Rue Lane, and she soon finds that her new house harbors something that has been there for a very long time. Something that refuses to stay buried. In A Haunting, L. I. Albemont brings us parallel tales of old and modern horror, weaving colonial era events into a modern ghost story you won't soon forget.

    "Animals and children"

    This book was a huge disappointment to me. I like a good ghost story very much, and I like a good home rehab book very much, especially if it's spiced up with some bumps in the night and creepy atmosphere. In other words, I like a nice cozy ghost story.
    This book sounds like that's exactly what it is both from the description and from the reviews that I read, but in my opinion a cozy ghost story does not torture and abuse either children or animals. It's very disappointing because the home rehab and atmosphere of the town in general were all one could ask for from a cozy. This just made the ugliness of the savagery directed at the animals and children all the more jarring. If you like animals (especially cats but also dogs) and/or children, I advise you to give this book a miss.

    "A little predictable"

    l enjoy a good ghost story with minimal violence and this book fit the bill. It was predictable in places and not enough back story in other places.
    I felt the last chapter didn't really line up with the rest of the book.
    For me the last chapter was WTF.

    If you enjoy these type ghost stories I highly recommend Family Plot by Cherie Priest.

    "Needed more"
    Would you try another book from L. I. Albemont and/or Teri Schnaubelt?

    A Haunting overall was a good story and keep me listening. I enjoyed the narrator and thought that the characters were genuine and likable. Additionally, I enjoyed the detailed description of Charleston and the mix of old and new. I just wish there were more to the story and how certain characters were involved in this tale.


    If you’ve listened to books by L. I. Albemont before, how does this one compare?

    This was my first experience with this author.


    What about Teri Schnaubelt’s performance did you like?

    Enjoyable and talented narrator.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Sure

    "Not really an ending..."

    Book was good, narrator was excellent (as she always is) but there was no ending. It felt like the end of a chapter not the end of the book. I hope the epilogue was not a sneak peek of a #2 with new characters, Id like to know what happens with these characters first. Overall I did really enjoy the book, it held my interest all the way through...and beyond.

    "A Haunting of a Nice Victorian Plantation To Grab You"

    Sara was in the court to hear the sentencing of her husband Shawn Faust. He had been found guilty of defrauding the Teachers and Fire Men's Association leaving them with no pensions upon retirement. Sara had worked three years for a small property development company. Her boss had called her in and suggested a leave of absence casting no shadow of a doubt on her participation and her innocence. She accepted his offer and severance pay. Shawn had received twenty right years in confinement. She had stood beside him throughout his trail even though she learned he had been seeing another woman. She (Kellie) had turned states evidence in Shawn in receipt of amunity and was free. Sarah knew it was time to sell out and leave town for a fresh start. She moved further down the East Cost to Charleston, S. C. She began hunting for a house to restart her life. She had looked at several houses when her realtor show her a two story Victorian house which looked in need of much attention. It was almost hidden surrounded by many trees, shurbs, vines and brush. He said it needs a little work both outside and inside. Are you ready for a tour inside? Sarah agreed and they went in. He said he was told the house dated back to the Revolutionary War. Well Sara bought the house on Rue Lane because she could get it for a price she couldn't turn down. Sara began the renovation of the old plantation a little at a time as she could it. She needed a job an had filled out on line resumes, but no call yet. She began exploring the premises both outside and inside. Sarah saw much repair was needed outdide, but she was eager to start inside first. Meeting the neighbor's brought up a lot of stories which told of paranormal activities in her house. She figured all houses that old had to have some history and decided she would check it out. Sarah was determined to find out the history with her new home so she visited the library and Court House early the next day. She was told by both the house was considered haunted and no one had lived there for quiet awhile because of that. Sara did not believe in ghost so she remained in her new house and continued to renovate to make it once again a beautiful place and her home. She learned that the plantation had been occupied in the mid seventeenth century by a woman named Elizabeth Grahm that the town suspected was a witch. After a few days and nothing had happened. Sara continued her renovations without worry, but that didn't continue for long. Strange occurrences began out of the ordinary which got her attention. Will this indeed be a beautiful new Victorian home for her to resettle in or was there something more sinister going on? Grab this book by L. I. Abelmont and listen. The Narrator Schnaubelt does a nice job. In my opinion this is a well written story that will keep your intrest. I recommend it for teens and above.

    "Fun and Interesting Story"

    Overall, I enjoyed the story although it ended a bit abruptly. I liked the characters and the story development. The narrator's Southern accents were better than most--not too over-the-top twangy like some tend to be.

    "Pretty Much A Lifetime Movie"

    Ugh.

    I knew I'd wasted my time when I heard "she-mullet."

    Not much of an ending, lots of pointless events.

    Hokey plot.

    "Horror?"

    the story is a little bit interesting which is why I was able to finish this book. But as a hardcore horror fan looking for something to Spook me up a little, I was extremely disappointed in this. nothing was ever scary or spooky nor did it get my hairs standing at any point. It's worth the read if you just need a story. If you're looking for horror, find yourself a better book.

    Nice ghost story. Characters i quite liked and plenty of delving into the dim distant past. In no danger of passing out with fear but will deffo read again.
