Publisher's Summary

Something has always lived in Winthrop House.
After his book becomes a best seller, novelist Jack Ripley moves into a house on the edge of Cutler Harbor with his wife and two daughters. Nearly a century old, Winthrop House is newly-restored and boasts a gorgeous oceanfront view.
But everything is not what it seems.
Though picturesque, Jack learns that the house has been shunned for decades by the locals, owing to a number of mysterious disappearances and inexplicable deaths on the grounds.
The Ripleys begin to grapple with the property's vile reputation, learning more about its sordid history and experiencing strange things within its walls. What was once a dream home quickly becomes a nightmare for the family as they encounter the terrifying presence that has existed there since times immemorial.

Pretty creepy

I like books that are scary enough to make me uncomfortable but that are not gruesome. This book is creepy enough but not gross in any way, sometimes the characters do things and make decisions that seem unadvisable,( like leaving their daughters alone in parts of the house even after they know its haunted)...however the book did not drag out too long, the characters were mostly likable, the narrator was not at all annoying. Overall I would give this 3.5 stars as a good book. If book 2 becomes available on audible I will listen.

Ghosts by the Sea!

Any additional comments?

I always love a good ghost book and this one takes the cake! Ambrose has this kind of supernatural horror nailed to the floor - he never disappoints. A great mix of mystery, spooks, fueled characters and a solid dose of generally fantastic writing. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a ghost story!

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
