Blurb: When his Uncle Mortimer died and left him Hoxne Grange, the family’s Gilded Age mansion, Tristan Pryce became the second generation of Pryces to serve as a caretaker for the estate, a way station for spirits on their final steps to the afterlife. Tristan is prepared for challenges, though not necessarily from the ghosts he’s seen since childhood. Determined to establish Tristan’s insanity and gain access to his trust fund, his loving relatives hire Dr. Wolf Kincaid and his paranormal researchers, Hellsinger Investigations, to prove the Grange is not haunted.
Skeptic Wolf Kincaid has made it his life’s work to debunk the supernatural. After years of cons and fakes, he can’t wait to reveal the Grange’s ghostly activity is just badly leveled floorboards and a drafty old house. More than a few surprises await him at the Grange, including its prickly, reclusive owner. Tristan Pryce is much less insane and much more attractive than Wolf wants to admit, and when his team releases a ghostly serial killer on the Grange, Wolf is torn between his skepticism and protecting the man he’s been sent to discredit.
Review: I hit the audiobook lottery this week! I listened to/enjoyed the two best audiobooks I have ever! Ever! listened to. But, they were excellent for two completely different reasons.
The first audio I reviewed this week I considered the best because of the narration. This audio, Fish and Ghosts, is one of the best because of the story. Tristan and Wolf are on the ride of a lifetime, filled with ghosts, a poltergeist, all kinds of spirit animals—including a dog with a red ball, an elephant and a camel. Tristan is the caretaker of an amazing mansion, Hoxne Grange, which is described to us in rich detail. As a matter of fact, most of the book’s characters, which includes the mansion, are laid out for us with such care that you feel like you could just walk in the front door and be greeted by Tristan. The intense description of the ghosts, Wolf Kincaid and his team of researchers, the grounds of Hoxne Grange, and the sex was just amazing! And on a personal level, I would highly suggest not listening to this audio while driving home in the dark, especially when you live in a sparsely populated area on dirt roads. My imagination went crazy!
Would I buy this audio if I already owned the book? HELL YES! I can’t wait for the second book in the series to be released as an audio. It’s a funny, scary ride that I wish would have lasted longer than eight hours and sixteen minutes.
