Excellent story with distracting narration

***No spoilers** This was a pretty good way to spend 17 minutes. It is predominantly a conversation between a man and a ghost that culminates in a grisly revelation. Other than a small problem with the narration which I will mention below, the story does a great job of capturing the mood of the Scottish highlands in the period in which it is set. I liked the story and will look for more by this author.

As for the narration, it is performed with about half being done in a Scottish accent, and the other half in the narrator's natural American accent (she is an American). The Scottish was pretty good in many places, but a little off in others.

Strangely, though, it was really the narrator's American speech that she used between the dialogue that was the problem. When she speaks with her native accent, her voice is rather harsh. It probably would have been fine in a book by itself, but it broke the mood and flow of the story to hear alternating lines of this with the softer Scottish. It also seemed like the narrator had trouble switching back and forth herself. If she had done the whole thing in a Scottish accent, it would have been much better.

I received this book for free at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Moira Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

Great short ghost story. Listened to it twice just to make sure I didn't miss anything the first time. Reminds me of some of the classic scary story anthologies from when I was younger. Nothing too scary but overall it was a neat story which sounded like an elegant telling of folklore.
Rinelle Harkin really makes this story shine. Her narrator voice is what I would call an American accent but the dialogue was in a harsh Scottish accent. Done very well and really brought this story to life. Her reading of this made it sound more like poetry than prose.
Look forward to more from both the author and the narrator.

Moira

This was a beautifully written and performed story. I loved the way the tale was woven together and how the simplicity of the telling made it so much better. It is short but worth it. The audiobook was read by Rinelle Harkin and I hope to hear more narration from her in other projects. Read this and enjoy it.

Great, but very short ghost story

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was a very short but fun ghost story. I thought it was very well narrated and found I wished it was longer.

Great campfire listen!🔥👻

This is a sit back and Roast marsh mellows by a campfire book. I wouldn't consider this ghostly tale spine-chilling scary, but I still enjoyed it. I think Rinelle did a good job narrating. I loved the accent. I was given this book per my request at no charge to me and have voluntarily decided to leave this review.

Wonderful short story of the lady in white

Wow I was not expecting a Scottish accent at the beginning of this story and man does it really bring it to life. Rinelle Harkin has done an excellent job narrating this wonderful short ghost story about the lady in white. You do get in to the story from the start and it really captivates you until all of the sudden it ends and you are left feeling wtf wow I did not see that coming. Brilliant work and definitely worth the small price. I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom. Looking forward to more by Christina Paul in the future.

Very short ghost story

The only thing wrong with this story is it is too short. It is a tragic tail of Moira, the Lady in White, whose life was cut too short. Lachlin wants to know her story. But what price will he pay?

Christina Paul has done a really good job with writing this story but I have to admit that Rinelle Harkin has done an amazing job with her narration. Her Sottish accent is spot on, it is strong and rich, and really brings the chill to the story. I will be looking for more books by both of them.

Well written, but lacking in places

I found this to be a well written ghost story about the legendary "Woman in White," although it was more tragic than scary, which wasn't a bad thing. Rinelle Harkin does a good job narrating. I'm not very good at recognizing accurate accents, but her Scottish accent seemed legit. My only criticism is that, possibly due to the short length, the story felt a little lacking in detail at a couple of points. The writing was excellent, and I found it quite interesting, but it really could have been a bit longer. This would have given the plot more room to mature and flesh out. Even so, I enjoyed it.
