Publisher's Summary

Four years ago, Emily Shea and Staff Sergeant Brett Leeds agreed to part with no strings attached. Sparks flew during their brief affair, but fate intervened, sending Brett overseas. When an unexpected pregnancy derailed Emily's own plans, her attempts to locate Brett were soon overwhelmed by the challenges of single motherhood. Now, Brett has returned home, and Emily is forced to share her secret.

Despite feeling betrayed, Brett is determined to forge a relationship with their son, Tyler. As the former lovers battle both their inner demons and their mutual desire, another presence enters their lives - Tyler's imaginary friend. Soon, however, the chilling evidence points to a different conclusion: A ghost has formed a dangerous connection with their son.

Emily's attempts to help both a lost soul and a friend in need spiral toward a deadly confrontation, and Brett must race to save Emily before he loses her again forever.

More than a Ghost Story!

What a book! I loved the original storyline this book had. The imaginary friend of their son was so much more than expected. I loved how the couple healed each other and revealed their secrets. The book has some very unexpected twists in the story, which added to it. This book is part romance, part suspense, and part paranormal which worked out so well. I was pulled into the book from the very beginning and thought the ending was so fitting. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I thought the narration on this book added to the enjoyment, with the distinguished voices for various characters. I will definitely listen to more books by Kathryn Knight and Kristin James.

Stunning

First, loved this audio.
I was hooked from the very beginning. Emily Shea and Staff Sergeant Brett Leeds agreed to part with no strings attached. So why when he comes back 4 years later he's all pissed off when Emily tells him about his son? Men! Their son Tyler has an imaginary friend. (Chills!) Holy crap, so good! Kathryn Knight wrote a wonderful book. Loved it!
Kristin James narrated perfect! I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. To be honest I would not have chosen Haunted Souls. So glad I did! I am planning on a second listen. Job well done.
Can't wait to hear more of Kathryn and Kristin.

What Haunts You?

This story made me ache as these two tried to work things out. The pain of not knowing he had a son for 4 years devastated Brett. Emily knew she was a bad person by not telling him, but in her own right she did try. It seemed fate was against them. When Brett came back to town 4 years later, she braved the truth instead of lying to him. There was always something deep between these two, but circumstances and ambitions drove them apart. This story has a Gothic feel to it with the ghosts added in, but that is what will drive these two to rethink their relationship. This story is well developed and emotional. It made me think about some of my choices in life. How different my life would be if I made different choices.

Sweet romance!!

Loved this book! What came through strongly for me was the effects of war on soldiers and loss of loved ones to the families! Emily and Brett were meant to be but each had secrets keeping them apart! Tyler's imaginary friend brought a bit of mystery and suspense to the story and i just HAD to know how it ended. Sweet and satisfying!!!

loved it

Captivating, intense, wonderful!

Emily feels like she is finally getting in a routine for single parenthood when he sons father moves back to town perminately and turns her world upside down. Will they be able to move through the twists and turns of life for their 4 year old son?

I loved this story. Author Kathryn Knight did a wonderful job capturing my attention, creating relatable and loveable characters, having a plot with many twists and turns plus she tugged at my heartstrings for Emily, Brett and Tyler.

I listened to this in audiobook form. The narrator Kristin (KJ) James is the best narrator I have ever heard.

I highly recommend this 5 star read

Nice to Read Something New

I offered to review this audiobook because I am such an an avid reader but also almost exclusively audio due to my schedule. Because of this, and the fact that a bad narrator can destroy a great series, I can be very critical of narrators. Especially when books have a single narrator required to speak with different voices for multiple characters. Most cannot do it without having some errors where they use the wrong 'voice' for the wrong character. Kristin James does a great job in narrating this book! It was a very enjoyable listen and I didn't have any issues distinguishing between characters.

As to the story, I am not one to give a lot of specific story details since I feel you should read the story for that, and Haunted Souls will not disappoint! The story was well done and the author did a great job of not over dramatizing the ghost in their mist. If you enjoy the paranormal, you will enjoy this story. If you enjoy a good romance, you will enjoy this story. The book includes interesting characters, lots of twists and turns in the main story, and several good underlying stories within that will make you want to keep listening until the story is over.

great story and narrator

I think the narrator was excellent, and I also liked the story, even though usually I don't really like paranormal/ghost stories.

an intense, haunting tale

Emily and Brett were once an item, but Brett leaves Emily alone to go for training. Emily searches for Brett, but comes up short and must raise Tyler alone. Brett returns to the surprise that will change his life. During a tour to a local historic prison, Tyler meets a friend, Josiah. Bringing Josiah home with him, Tyler promises to share his mom. Emily thinks Tyler has an imaginary friend until things start to go bump in the night. Kathryn Knight has a way with twisting so many lives into one story and bringing together the spiritual and physical worlds. Haunted Souls is a haunting tale of how different things were in the past, yet how strong the love between a mother and child is. There are so many characters, each with their own issues that weave together this story of love, trust and second chances. I cannot wait for another story by Kathryn Knight,

Kristin James brings this haunting tale to life. Her ability to narrate the intense, haunting drama as it unfolded, made me have goosebumps. Ms. James ability to keep all the characters distinct really helped with the ease of following the story. The suspenseful scenes kept me on the edge of my seat as Ms. James narrated. I hope to hear more from Kristin James.

Such a good story!

I love romance books, but when paired with a good ghost story, it's like gold. Kathryn Knight has combined a little history, a little paranormal, some real life issues and a second chance at romance and given us just that! Emily and Brett met four years earlier and hit it off. Brett leaves for his training and now back has the surprise of his life. Tyler, their son is a smart, intuitive child who has brought home a spirit from a local history tour. Mix in some PTSD and domestic violence and we have a great story. I love Emily, her character is full of passion, loves fiercely and will do anything to help her friend. Brett is a strong, alpha type make who has a loyalty and love like no other. But will they be able to overcome the obstacles in their way to find their happiness? I think my favorite character is Josiah and his story. Knight surrounds suspense around the 12 year old spirit and Tyler with great visuals of his life. The melding of all the stories together flowed with ease and had me wanting to listen straight through. It's a great story!

Narrated by Kristen James, the story is brought to life with such wonderful voicing, it's impossible to put it down. She is a great storyteller and gave each character it's own voice and personality. She is a talent not to be missed.
