Publisher's Summary

Mary O’Reilly Alden froze and stared into the living room. She could swear that something moved in there. She walked around the counter, toward the living room, and heard a soft giggle. It sounded like a child’s voice, but there was something about it that sent chills down her spine. 

“Who’s there?” she asked, walking to the entrance of the room. The giggle repeated, this time clearer. “I don’t find this funny at all,” she replied firmly, trying not to show her fear. “Now, if you want my help, you will show yourself.”She looked around and saw the branches of the Christmas tree shake.

She started to step forward, but a sudden grip of instinctual fear held her back. The giggle repeated, and then the voice called out, “Mary. Mary. I’ve found you.” Mary gripped the edge of the couch, her knees weakening beneath her. It was the voice from the asylum, and it was in her home.

The spirit from the asylum has followed Mary O’Reilly home for the holidays. But there are no chestnuts roasting on the open fires he’s creating. With Rosie and Stanley in danger, will Mary and company be able to assure themselves of a Merry Christmas, or will things go terribly, terribly wrong?

bad choice for speaker. Clarissa sounded like a teenager and you could barley tell the characters apart. the first one was much better

narration change

Emily sounds like a fine narrator, but after 18 books by Erin I think I have to go back to the ebook to finish. Still a great series. I was only going to relisten to book 1 to kill some time until my next credits were available. Hooked, just like the first time, one leads to two, leads to three. You get the picture, hard to stop after just one. Love the discounts you get with buying both ebook and audible, never know when you have to read in public and I'm not fond of earbuds.
Thanks Terri for a few more hours of entertainment. that can be repeated over and over.

change in narrator

hmmm. I love the series, I have read it a couple of times and am now listening. I was thrown for a loop when the voice changed. she was ok,but a of the characters were now different. I would encourage, if possible, to keep the same person through out the entire series!!

Not a fan of Narrator changes

Great Mary O'Reilly mystery. But not a fan of the new Narrator. 18 books one Narrator, now the last two are different.
