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.

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 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.

Lighthearted and charming

There's a delightfully cheeky ghost whose antics made me laugh out loud and wish I had him around when I needed him. This story s a short, sweet escape from the worries of the world. An added bonus at the end: a traditional Scottish recipe and the little-known secret to its success. You're in good hands when you read a book by Jo-Ann Carson!

In spite of the cover showing a gorgeous guy, there are no overt sexual scenes here: just good old-fashioned kissing. Just the way I like it!

The main reader, Lisa Riechert, seems to have done mostly non-fiction before this and I wondered if she could step up to the challenge of reading fictional material. Her voice has a lovely tone and I feel she shows great promise for reading fiction. Darren Pollock, reads the ghost character with a delightful Scottish burr.

All Ghosts should be this lovable!

Maddy was suffering from a broken heart. She found the man she was to marry making out with another woman. Her best friend gives her an odd Christmas gift. It was a reading by an eccentric old woman at a creaky tea house. Mandy’s not crazy about the gift , but goes along with it, and is immediately haunted by the handsome, 300 year old Highland ghost Cullen Macfie.
But he’s not just any old ghost . He’s a tall well built redhead in a kilt! Cullen’s problem is he can’t move on until he earns his way.
Maddy can’t see him, because he a ghost, so he shows himself by moving things around, and communicates with by writing to her. The more time they spend together, they begin to fall in love. Maddy desperately wants to see Cullen but he can only be seen for a certain amount of time in the very early hours of the morning. Once she sees him she’s hooked! I loved this book. It made me laugh, it made me sigh, it made me fall in love with Cullen and Maddy. What will happen to Cullen and Maddy. Will there be a happy ending for them? You must treat yourself to this book! I’m certain you will love it too.

A Hauntingly Sweet Love Story

My first read from author Jo-Ann Carson was hauntingly sweet with characters you love. The author gifted me an Audible copy and I'm glad she did. Since I own both the Audible & Kindle books I was able to follow along while the narrator read.
