The Haunting of Hillwood Farm by Kathryn Knight

The Haunting of Hillwood Farm - Kathryn Knight

This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.

I enjoyed this audiobook! I usually go into books as blindly as possible so I didn't know a whole lot about this one when I got started. I actually had missed the faces at the top of the book's cover so I didn't even guess that there would be some romance. It all worked out since I really enjoy romance and I loved the way that it was combined with the other elements in the books. I am really glad that I decided to give this one a try!

So this book did have a romantic element but it really was so much more than that. Mrs. Turner has been experiencing some strange things at her farm since her husband's sudden death a few months prior. She calls Callie to help figure out what is going on. Callie can talk to ghosts and really just wants to help if she can but she is not surprised when Luke, Mrs. Turner's grandson, doesn't trust her motives.

I really liked the characters in this story. Callie had a really interesting past and I really enjoyed learning how she acquired her gift. It was obvious right away that she really had good motives and just wanted to help. Luke was pretty open-minded once the story really got going. He cared about his family and their farm and wanted to make sure that everyone was safe. I liked watching Luke and Callie come together and thought that they had great chemistry.

I believe that this was the first time that I have had the chance to listen to the narration work of Kristen James. I thought that she did a great job with this story and really brought the story to life. There were some pretty intense scenes and I think that her delivery added to the impact of the story. I liked the voice that she used for the characters. She had a very pleasant voice that was easy to listen to for hours at a time.

I would recommend this book to others. I thought that this was the perfect combination of romance and creepy ghost story. I wouldn't hesitate to pick up more from this talented author!

I received a review copy of this audiobook from Kathryn Knight as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. 

Initial Thoughts
I enjoyed this audiobook! This was more of a romance than anything but I liked the creepy ghost elements that were present. The narrator did a fantastic job with this as well.
