Ghosts and a creepy tower!

Morgan inherits her eccentric father's estate when he passes. He was never a part of her life until his death. She gre up poor struggling for everything and suddenly has a fortune and mansiin with a chilling history. It still contains furnishings from the first owners and a ghost or two.

For a short story the author uses good pacing and builds a suspenseful tale using small details and descriptions. She drops clues throughout without giving away too much at a time. It's difficult to build intrigue in so few pages but she does it. I wanted to know what was going to happen next so listened to the entire story in one sitting.

Loved it!

I received the book free from the author through Audiobook Boom.

More Gothic Romance...

...than suspenseful, creepy tale. When Morgan suddenly inherits Woodmere Manor from a father she didn't know existed, she is thrust into a mystery on her very first night! She is enchanted with a strange portrait of a woman and another of a solemn man who stare at each other from across a room. Morgan must decide if she is just spooked to be living in the mansion alone or if there is something more supernatural or sinister going on.

I would have liked more suspenseful, creepiness in this listen over the romance aspects that took up much of Morgan's time. She did such stupid things. First, she sees the man from the painting on her lawn and then goes and adopts...a cat?? Second, she immediately develops an attraction for the local priest. I mean like at first sight. Third, the priest offers to bless her home when she confides in him about her finds in the tower and she doesn't have him do it, like right now? The premise was a good one for this story but I would have liked less of the romance and angst that took up so much of Morgan's thoughts and more creepy, suspenseful atmosphere as well as more backstory on Morgan, her father, Noel, and Owen.

I enjoyed some of Daniela Acitelli's narration like Morgan, Noel, and her old lady voices but others were annoying or weird sounding like Owen and the psychic lady. Owen's voice was so weird, it had me wondering how Morgan could be conflicted by him at all.

I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom! in exchange for an honest review.
