Publisher's Summary

Autumn Hartley purchases Allen Hall at a steal, but the northern lass gets far more than a beautiful plantation in the South Carolina Low Country. The house comes complete with its own ghost, a handsome and charming Civil War General - for the Confederacy. The stage is set for another civil conflict.

John Sibley Allen died in battle from a wound in the back, the bullet fired by the turncoat, Beauregard Dudley. The traitor's reincarnation is Autumn the Interloper's first dinner guest. Sib bedevils her date and annoys her with fleeting, phantom touches, certain he can frighten her away as he did previous purchasers. As time marches on, her resident ghost becomes more appealing while her suitor, Beau, pales in comparison. Autumn finds her ability to love didn't perish in the divorce that sent her south seeking a fresh start.

After over a century in the hereafter, Sib discovers he is falling for none other than the feisty Yankee girl, but what future could a modern woman and an old-fashioned ghost possibly hope for?

Narration takes away from

Her General in Gray by Linda Nightingale is a short, sweet novella that unfortunately isn't as entertaining as it could be due to flat narration. The story itself revolves around the ghost of John Sibley Allen, whom still resides in the house, Allen Hall, that he lived in at the time of his death. Now, in the modern day, Autumn Hartley is living there and the two begin a sort of friendship that goes stronger as time passes. When the reincarnation of the man that murdered Mr. Allen arrives at as a guest of Ms. Hartley, the fun begins.

Joe Formichella's narration needs some help. Though is voice is pleasant, his narration of this novella is flat and monotone. I had to restart the book a few times before I got into it because of this. If the book sounds interesting to you, I would just encourage you to listen when you don't have distractions around you and when you aren't super sleepy so you can pay attention more so than you likely need to listening to other audiobooks. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher for an honest review.

Great Quick Read

Her General In Gray by Linda Nightingale was a good read. Autumn purchased a home for a steal but she didn't expect the house to come with a ghost. This was a good quick read.

Short and Sweet

Though this was a short story it was very sweet and very enjoyable. Autumn has purchased an old southern plantation complete with a ghost. Sib has been scaring away previous owners, however he is attracted to Autumn and getting rid of the present owner isn’t as important to him as it used to be. The storyline was quite unique and very entertaining. Autumn and Sib made a sweet couple and it was interesting how the author brought them together. I thought Joe Formichella did a good job of his narration. I received a free copy of this book and have voluntarily provided this unbiased review.

It was okay

I thought this book was overall okay. It starts right out of the gate and I thought I may have missed something or my audio skipped but it didn't. It was a cute quick listen but I believe it could have come to life MUCH better if the narration was different. He was very mono toned and there was no passion or excitement.

Good Ghost Story

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review

Autumn, a Northerner, buys an old house in the south, which comes with its own ghost of a Confederate soldier, Sib. When Autumn invites a neighbour over for supper, it's the descendant of the person that had killed Sib during the Civil war. Needless to say Sib gets his nose out of joint, especially when he and Autumn develop feelings for each other.

This was a cute story.. and I enjoyed it.

Sweet Love Story

I decided to listen to this story after reading the 'blurb' for the book, the idea intrigued me and I'm very glad I did.

The story takes place now and is about Autumn Hartley who has moved to South Carolina to start over after the death of her father. She has bought a beautiful mansion house in need a renovation at a really cheap price. But little does she expect to meet the former owner of this beautiful house General John Sibley Allen, Sib was shot in the back a few weeks before the end of the war, not by a northern soldier no, he was shot by Beauregard a neighbour and a member of the confederacy.

Sib has frightened away all of the previous owners of his home, but for some reason Autumn is not so easily frightened and the more Sib and Autumn converse the more 'real' Sib appears to become.

But the reincarnation of Beauregard is also on the scene and he is pursuing Autumn which is unacceptable to Sib. Will Autumn choose the living man, who to all intents and purposes appears to be very nice or will she believe Sib? Will she choose 'life' with Sib for as long as she lives?

It made a change to read a romance where the most intimate act between the parties was a chase kiss. This was a sweet love story and I really enjoyed it. The plotline though simple was well planned and the characters were brought to life very well by the narration.

I was given a copy of this book as a gift and am voluntarily writing my review.

Not your average ghost

I laughed out loud reading this book, the Generals actions were quite funny at times. It's interesting to see a southern gentleman transplanted into the modern era, the changes made for some humorous reactions from John.

I like Autumn a lot, the way she dealt with having a ghost haunting her new house showed she has inner strength in spades, and I love that is a lead character.

The scene is beautifully set, there's just enough of a description to create a mental picture without putting in too much detail.

The narrator did a good job with the character voices and having the personalities of the characters come through. The overall delivery was well paced and sounded natural.

Romance With A Ghost

I received a copy for a voluntary honest review.

Autumn is from the North who bought a house
Previously owned by a civil war confederate who was shot in the back by a fellow soldier
He has scared owners by presence out of his house but not Autumn
They oddly become infatuated with each other while Autumn is dating a man who happens to be the reincarnation of a fellow soldier,Beauregard, who was at odds with Sib
A well written and interesting story! I had a hard time listening to the narrator who had the same tone, inflection, and cadence. Biting and difficult to listen to, luckily the story was interesting and enjoyable.
