Publisher's Summary

There's something wrong with Ashburn House....

The ancient building has been the subject of rumours for close to a century. Its owner, Edith, refused to let guests inside and rarely visited the nearby town. Following Edith's death, her sole surviving relative, Adrienne, inherits the property. Adrienne's only possessions are a suitcase of luggage, 20 dollars, and her pet cat. Ashburn House is a lifeline she can't afford to refuse.

Adrienne doesn't believe in ghosts, but it's hard to ignore the unease that grows as she explores her new home. Strange messages have been etched into the wallpaper, an old grave is hidden in the forest behind the house, and eerie portraits in the upstairs hall seem to watch her every movement.

As she uncovers more of the house's secrets, Adrienne begins to believe the whispered rumours about Ashburn may hold more truth than she ever suspected. The building has a bleak and grisly past, and as she chases the threads of a decades-old mystery, Adrienne realises she's become the prey to something deeply unnatural and intensely resentful.

Only one thing is certain: Ashburn's dead are not at rest.

    "Disappointed"

    Kept waiting for a really scary story but it didn't arrive. Narrator was good. Too bad.

    "Cool back story - worth the wait"

    A bit slow to start, but atmospheric and creepy. I loved the back story and wanted more. Great end!

    Story
    "One of my top listens!"
    Would you listen to The Haunting of Ashburn House again? Why?

    Absolutely! I feel as if this is the kind of book you can listen to again and again, so much detail that doesn't bog the book down will find its way out with every listen.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Adrienne, i find myself in her. Its so nice to find a ghost story without a level of romance. I love the passion of this girl and how she take courageous steps in her life!


    Which character – as performed by Eva Kaminsky – was your favorite?

    Adrienne, You almost forget its a book!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! i found myself doing thing that made it possible for my to have my headphones in!


    Any additional comments?

    I am about to go see if this author has more books like this! Fingers crossed!

    Story
    "UMM...Am I in the twilight zone?"

    This book had great reviews, like it was "terrifying" and "intriguing". If by terrifying they meant boring then I will agree. I was never once scared or worried. I could not wait for this book to end. It wasn't even good if you consider that it was probably written for teens...Cause I can do teen books sometimes. Besides being boring there were weird things like the main character being upset about how her " friends" treated her or if her "friend" was hurt after they had met only once! That does not make you a friends. Also there wasn't enough back story for you to care about her. The mystery was a big fat nothing. Looks like Im in the minority but I would not waste a credit on this book if I could go back in time.

    Story
    "1 unanswered question"

    If edith is her great aunt, who is her great grandmother? Ediths only siblings was Eleanor, she obviously did not have kids, this is confusing.

    "Engrossing, entertaining, with quite a few shivers"

    I really enjoyed this book. The Story is different, keeps you at the edge of your seat and very unpredictable!
    I loved it!

    Story
    "So much promise unfulfilled...."

    Well written with excellent narration, but took a long time to get to the business of scaring me. The backstory/mythology was revealed in three short, not very scary, bursts and the rest is hide and seek coupled with endless descriptions of the protagonist's lack of funds and her cat. I was constantly tempted to skip ahead. Last third of the book was genuinely scary in parts but this is unlikely to satisfy die hard fans of this genre. Some gruesome parts and well depicted creeps but the equivalent of eating korma when you're craving vindaloo.
