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.

    Story
    "Spoilers ahead"

    I really wanted to like this book but the main character spends 95% of the book speaking about how scary the house looks, her cat, and how she's broke and needs to get paid by her clients.

    The character is a freelance writer. I know freelance writers that write for a living and they're not broke like the main character is. The ending wasn't satisfying.

    I kept waiting for thrills and scares and it wasn't scary. I feel like an R.L. Stine teen horror book is scarier than this book.

    Finally towards the end of the book the character does more research on the house. She finally talks to more townspeople about the history of the home.

    She finally goes to the library to research. Why didn't she research the house before moving in? You can research houses on real estate websites now.

    It was just too slow for much of the book without much action. I'm sure it's not easy to write a book but at the same time as a reader I just wanted true spooks.

    "Keep an open mind..."

    I listened to this story with the expectation of it to be quite boring based on the other reviews that I read. I was pleasantly surprised by the twists and turns in it, but hoped for a little more excitement before the end of the story. It was still very entertaining and I would recommend it for a nice drive if you want to listen to something that keeps your attention and it does keep you a little thrilled throughout the story. I wish there was a sequel as I would like to know more about the concept of the family.

    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.

    "Too many pauses read too slow. Story was good."

    Too many pauses in reading and read too slow. Good story but narrator not so good.

    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!

    "great story...shame about the 'ghost'"

    I really enjoyed the story and it started off really well however the appearance of the 'ghost'which was more a monster/ghoul ruined it for me but that is just a personal preference. really liked the premise of the story, it was performed well, length of the book was good and it kept me interested however it dampened with the appearance of the ghoul. otherwise enjoyable and was why I gave it 4 and not 5.
