Amazingly Awful! What did I listen to??????

Wow, I am so surprised at these reviews... Seriously? What did I just listen to? A stupid story that's what! Really a 300 year old ghost baking cookies and having snowball fights with a so called "heartbroken" Maddy? She wasn't even heartbroken. That is not even the half of it. This book has to be one of the worst I have listened too. I actually finished it because I just couldn't believe what I was listening too.

Just terrible, don't waste an hour and half on this!

As for the narration, it was terrible too. Why did Maddy have to sound like an idiot?? Ugh the only good parts of the narration was the voice (not words) of Cullen the 300 year old Ghost from Scotland. That is the only reason the performance gets 2 stars.

A Highland Ghost for Christmas

I really enjoyed this book. It was a fun, lighthearted and yet touching story.
It flowed nicely and the narration made the story come alive. Even though I've already read the book and knew I loved it, I was excited to listen to the audible version too. Very well done and enjoyable listening to . Read with the perfect speed and their voices held my attention. (oh...gotta love that accent too!)

Maddy is trying to heal a broken heart and her friend decides to give her a psychic reading as a Christmas gift. That’s when everything changes. Cullen is a gambling, bad boy Highland ghost, and when he notices Maddy, he really wants to get to meet her. His counselor angel , Cee Cee, makes a deal with him and gives him a chance to redeem himself because she thinks Maddy and Cullen will be able to help each other. That’s when all the fun begins.

Several laugh out loud moments and some very touching moments also. Jo-Ann Carson really made this a fun and interesting story and I was happy to be able to listen to the audio version now too.

Cute Christmas Romance

After a psychic reading in a tea house promising her not just one man in her life, but two, broken-hearted librarian Maddy meets Cullen Macfie, a Scottish Highlander. The only problem is Cullen is dead. For over 300 years, Cullen has been a ghost who spends his eternity being mischievous and playing poker with other ghosts. Cullen spots Maddy in the teahouse and is smitten so he makes a deal with his angelic counselor to allow him to try to mend Maddy’s heart.

This was a cute story and I loved the chemistry between Maddy and Cullen. Their interactions ranging from Christmas tree decorating and baking were a hilarious endeavor and thoroughly enjoyable. I also liked the second man, Hank, making an appearance in Maddy’s life. I’m not a fan of love triangles at all, but this story appealed because you can’t help but like Cullen and his determination to show her that love finds a way.

My Final Verdict: I recommend this book to anyone looking for some fun and stress relief during the busy Christmas season. This is the first book in a series that has me curious about what’s next.

Ghostly love.

This was a cute, rather clean story. With the way this book went, I am curious about how the others in the series will go. Ghost falls in love with woman. Woman falls in love with ghost. Woman forsakes human man in favor of ghost she can never actually be with. Ghost loves her enough to step back and propel her and the human man toward each other. Woman and human man find their HEA (as is evidenced by the epilogue) and ghost moves on to heaven. Will the whole series be of this nature? Overall, this was an enjoyable read and I'm curious how the other books in the series will play out. I don't feel strongly driven to continue the series, but I wouldn't be opposed to it either, particularly with them being such quick reads.

A Highland Ghost for Christmas

I enjoyed listening to this short sweet novella. The humor interjected throughout was perfect... I actually chuckled out loud a few times. There was also a perfect happily ever after.

I look forward to more stories by Jo-Ann Carson as well as the narrators, Lisa Reichert and Darren Pollock.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

One of my favourite books! Very enjoyable.

I have read and listened to this book over and over. And it never fails to amuse me. I really like the humour and if you think about it, what better gift for a woman that has just had her heart broken. An overbearing, overprotective, gentlemanly Scottish ghost. I really enjoyed the whole concept of the story and the narration was perfect. It made the old story come to life.

Quench your Scottish ghost craving with this fluff

The audiobook narration had really good production quality. I really loved the male narrator, Darren Pollock, who did only the dialogue for all three male characters. His Scottish brogue was perfect and so very sexy! I hope that he does more Scottish romances in the future. However, I was not very fond of the female narrator, Lisa Reichert, who did most of the narration. Her work was technically great and emotive, but I think that she made Maddie (a woman in her twenties) sound way too old and too mousy. She sounded exactly like Bettie White when she was on the “Golden Girls”.
The story is very pleasant and adorable. It took an unexpected turn, but everyone did have a happy ending. The story has a light, breezy, funny tone. The romance is “clean”, AKA just kissing. I also enjoyed the Christmas theme and the paranormal theme. I recommend it to anyone who loves ghost romances and sweet romantic comedies.
