Publisher's Summary

Could you survive a week in a haunted house?
Mara is the daughter of spiritualists. Her childhood was filled with seances, scam mediums and talk of ghostly presences.
When Mara finally left her family's home, she vowed she would never allow superstition or false religion into her life again. Now she's ready to start over with her fiance, Neil, in a world based on rationality and facts.
But her past isn't ready to let her go just yet.
Mara and Neil purchase Blackwood House, a derelict property outside of town. They're warned about strange occurrences in the crumbling building. Doors open by themselves, voices whisper in the night, bloody handprints appear on the walls, and cold spots linger in the basement, where the house's original owner was murdered.
But Blackwood was dirt-cheap and came with a large plot of overgrown land. Mara loves her new home, and disregards the warnings.
Because ghosts aren't real...
...are they?

Very "girly"

First of all, great story.. really keeps you into it but the author writes with very female driven word play, it's not bad it's just a little too much sometimes.

Explaining every detail of every kiss and emotion that went on with every hug and kiss kind of annoys you as you're in the middle of the horror but u highly recommend.

wrong accent

this story is obviously british. why not use a British narrator? it would definitely enhance the story telling.

Nice book

It was a good book to listen to, but not as scary as I'd thought it would be.

flatliner....

Would you try another book written by Darcy Coates or narrated by Piper Goodeve?

you would have to work pretty hard to pursuade me.

Has The Haunting of Blackwood House put you off other books in this genre?

not at all.

What does Piper Goodeve bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

confusion.

Do you think The Haunting of Blackwood House needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

no.

Any additional comments?

I just could not relate to the main character Mara. She seemed pretty mild mannered plain Jane, no interesting qualities kind of girl, and then burst out with these mega tantrums and become super insulting and rude to the other characters. Did not like/get her character. Storyline and writing was bland.. and found it hard to keep engaged.
