Once upon a Haunted Moor was an excellent start for a series and one I thoroughly enjoyed. Sure it was a bit rough around the edges, and I would’ve loved for it to be a full-length novel. But I enjoyed it all the same - and you can't have it all (unfortunately).
Even though this was such a short novel it was packed to the brim. The tale Fox created was wonderfully atmospheric. It's set in a small town named Dark, and the name truly fits the feelings Fox evokes with her words; a quiet town with mysterious creatures haunting the moors. At times you could feel the creepiness come crawling, scratching on your door, wanting to be let in. Just remember; "let naught but love enter in."
I liked both Gideon and Lee, they were good together. They are so very different, but they somehow just fit, I loved the fact that there was an attraction, between them, but that it wasn't insta-love. It ended with a tentative HFN; "let's see where this takes us" kind of thing. And I'm glad for that. I love when relationships have are able to progress naturally. Which is one of the reasons why, after finishing this book you immediately want to dive into book 2. You just *have* to know more.
Tim Gilbert was a good choice for narrating this book, His voice really contributes to the feelings, and the hauntings fox created with her words. Gilbert takes her words and makes them come alive.

I liked the story and narration, but it was too short. Not much character building. The mystery was solved quickly and predictably. I’ll listen to the next one, but if it’s not longer and more in-depth, I probably won’t finish the series.
I’ve listened to all the books in the series back to back and thoroughly enjoyed everyone of them. Tim Gilbert has done an amazing job with the narration and has brought them to life for me.
This is a good mystery about a missing girl and the PC and psychic who find her. The descriptions of the countryside are well realised and the language is beautiful. The paranormal incidents are cleverly done and come across as logical when the process of working out what they mean is set out. The characters are easy to differentiate between although, in my head, Gideon wasn't quite as gravelly as portrayed so that threw me slightly but apart from that the narration was very good and I'm going to carry on with the series. Would recommend.
