    The Haunting of Abram Mansion A Riveting Haunted House Mystery By: Alexandria Clarke Narrated by: Gwendolyn Druyor I received this book from freeaudiblecodes and the review is my own opinion. This paranormal ghost story was more a few interlocking mysteries that just happened to have a couple of ghosts in them. The ghosts weren't scary but ones you felt sorry for.

This paranormal ghost story was more a few interlocking mysteries that just happened to have a couple of ghosts in them. The ghosts weren't scary but ones you felt sorry for. A couple is getting a divorce and they want to make it easy on each other, not your average divorce, and at the last minute there is a new issue. They have inherited a big house and they have to stay in the house for six months or they get nothing. There are so many mini mysteries to uncover in this house and town, about the people who lived there, and more! I really enjoyed it! Just when I thought I had something figured out, another clue would make my guess null and void! It was fun! I enjoyed the mental ride, the characters, and the plot! I went back to freeaudiblecodes to look for more by this author. The narrator was great too!

    DRAMA not HORROR. Please read. Okay, I very seldom write a review and am just unable to finish this book. I made it 67% of the way, however, I just cannot bring myself to do it. First and foremost, I don't blame the author; however just because you throw in a creepy old mansion and a ghost does not necessarily mean in belongs in the horror genre. This book mainly focuses, in my opinion, on the main character's feelings, her impending divorce, what the characters endure going through a divorce, et DRAMA not HORROR. Please read.

This book mainly focuses, in my opinion, on the main character's feelings, her impending divorce, what the characters endure going through a divorce, etc. And frankly I felt like the main character was self entitled, inconsiderate (especially considering she still loved her husband), and just an overall unlikable flake. This book just wasn't something I enjoyed reading. Although there were little inconsistencies with the writing and several typos/editing errors, the book is just blah. What little I was able to accomplish reading (well over half the book) was VERY predictable and cliche. Please note that I can usually finish a 400 page book within 2-3 evenings of reading, I've been reading this book for almost a week. The words flowed like reading a detailed book of someone's feelings watching a plant grow. If you're a huge horror, mystery, or ghost fan please be aware this is more of a love gone wrong because someone needed to follow their dreams/finding yourself/recreating yourself/follow your dreams/going through a divorce in a creepy old mansion DRAMA. I feel this book spends chapters after chapters describing her feelings and then in other chapters very little description and writing of when a ghost is actually present. If you enjoy those type of books, this is the book for you.

    The biggest issue I had with this book was the authors bizarre need to recount details and events frequently throughout the book. It was irritating and took away from the story telling.

    I really enjoyed this! A classic haunted house tale with a nice twist at the end! 4 stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I would have given it five stars except for 2 things: - The book seemed longer than it needed to be. Parts of the novel could have been cut and it wouldn’t alter the plot whatsoever. This did not detract from my enjoyment, just an observation. - My bigger issue: Author randomly recaps events we just recently read about and reintroduces us to characters that we’ve consistently interacted with.

    All about her divorce Not worth reading, nothing happened for over half the book. It's mainly Peyton complaining about a divorce that doesn't make sense. Not thrilling at all.

The main character kept me enveloped in the story by her damn stubbornness with her "husband." The plot thickens when they move into this old mansion...

    Enjoyable The book was a pretty good read. Less supernatural than I anticipated but it worked. It's more like a thriller with some ghosts. I predicted most of it but that happens with most books I read. A couple errors in the book the editors seemed to have missed but worth the read. Enjoyable The book was a pretty good read.

    The first 70% of this book is very good - characters, setting and story. The last thirty? For me, not so good. SPOILER * SPOILER* SPOILER* I don't think a ghost can kill. Otherwise, they'd just kill the one who killed them and go on about their business. Clunky ending with added characters didn't work for me.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. There are good things and bad thing about this book. On the plus side: I like that the events in this story take place over a six month period. No quick possession of some run down mansion that takes place over a weekend where the protagonist figures out a hundred years of history and manages to banish the evil ghost where generations before were unable to. This had a complex set of characters with real life events going on while the main characters happen to live in a haunted house. On the nega There are good things and bad thing about this book.

This had a complex set of characters with real life events going on while the main characters happen to live in a haunted house. On the negative side: There were a lot of weird side stories that were thrown in to escalate the drama and then just as quickly resolved. Did there have to be the druggie ex-boyfriend stalker and the mystery stalker? Also, the writing seemed to be broken up into sections like a serial novel. The author would end a chapter with a big reveal and the next chapter would start out summarizing the entire book up to that point as if I hadn't just read it. Some of the characters traits also seemed to change as time went on and it wasn't just personal growth kind of changes. More like they needed to become someone else for the story line to work. I definitely don't believe that Peyton actually went traveling and became the photographer she always wanted to be. From what I saw throughout the entire book she wanted to hang out at the coffee shop all day and drink coffee and be served breakfast. Only one time was she actually taking photographs. In no way do I believe she didn't want to have someone take care of her so her longing for a divorce was so out of character according to her actions. I do not believe the ghost would just be allowed to leave with the death of the bad guy. What was keeping them here in the first place? There was also a lot of I know this but I can't tell you, you have to go figure it out yourself Peyton. Ultimately it was entertaining but not spooky in any way.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Extremely predictable plot with an unlikable, whiny main character. I started to hate it whenever Peyton would spend time convincing us that her shallow reasons for wanting a divorce were justified (really, she’s just extremely childish and selfish). I half expected her to come to her senses by the end and learn to compromise (after all, Ben had made a lot of great suggestions about traveling and coming home to him) but they still ended up separated and basically Theo became her new husband.

Really what difference would it have made? Especially because the author spent too many scenes teasing that Peyton was still interested in staying married to Ben, that she still loved him, etc. Oh, and the “I don’t want to crush his hopes” trope, but she repeatedly asked him if she was making a mistake asking for a divorce. The big reveal of the bad guy at the end was also no big surprise, but the author still wasn’t very tactful about it. Another two minute wrap-up with a villainous spiel recounting his whole plan. So disappointed.

    I tried to like it, but the characters never really developed for me. Halfway through it I almost quit, but it’s such a long story and I already committed two days to it that I just wanted it done.

    I enjoyed the The Haunting of Winchester Mansion Omnibus that I decided to read other books by this author starting with the Haunting of Abram Mansion. I loved Bailey and Bodhi from the Winchester Mansion book but hated Peyton with a vengeance. She is self-centered, thoughtless, and callous towards her long time partner. There was absolutely nothing wrong with her husband, as a matter of fact he seemed to be the ideal partner. He takes good care of her, thinks of her comfort before anything else I enjoyed the The Haunting of Winchester Mansion Omnibus that I decided to read other books by this author starting with the Haunting of Abram Mansion. I loved Bailey and Bodhi from the Winchester Mansion book but hated Peyton with a vengeance. She is self-centered, thoughtless, and callous towards her long time partner. There was absolutely nothing wrong with her husband, as a matter of fact he seemed to be the ideal partner. He takes good care of her, thinks of her comfort before anything else, and is very thoughtful. But Peyton wants to divorce him to pursue a career in photography. It's not clear why she can't do this while they are together, and it did say there that she was not all that good at it. She still loves him but divorces him and I find the reason petty. Peyton is... So, there they are in court but they find out they cannot sign the divorce papers yet because they were both left Abram Mansion by her estranged grandfather and the condition is they need to live in it for 6 months together before they are allowed to sell it. Ben grabs this opportunity to prolong being with Peyton and hopes that staying together there will bring them closer and maybe rebuild their marriage. So while in the mansion we will see ghostly manifestations here and there but nothing too scary. And because of this I am left feeling that I am not reading a horror novel, it's more of a drama, tbh. Even the other characters' lives are full of drama (looking at you Theo, Della and Alex!) . Like I mean, full of it. I did figure out the twist around 70% in. And as with the previous book by this author that I read, I don't know if I am glad I guessed correctly or if I prefer to have been surprised. I also find it a waste of time and effort that there was a part where there was an unnecessary recap of something I just finished reading. And an introduction of the characters again when we haven't really left them yet anyway. It would have been appropriate if it was book 2 of the series or something, but it's not. Sooo... You know... Anyway, I will still the other books a chance so I will read a third book by this author and hope for the best.

    Peyton and Ben are ready to sign their divorce papers when Peyton inherits the Abram Mansion from her maternal grandfather. His will stipulates they must live the mansion for six months before they can sell. It’s not an ideal situation, especially for Peyton who wants the divorce finalized as quickly as possible so she can move on with her life. What Peyton doesn’t expect is to encounter in the home are ghosts.

It’s not an ideal situation, especially for Peyton who wants the divorce finalized as quickly as possible so she can move on with her life. What Peyton doesn’t expect is to encounter in the home are ghosts. I loved the small town of Falconwood and the descriptions of the crumbling old mansion. The house comes with a murky history that includes the suicide of the last owner and the disappearance of his wife and child. Throughout the story we get hints of what might have taken place, but full disclosure doesn’t come until near the end. I also really liked Peyton’s friendship with Theo, a young woman she meets in Falconwood, and Theo’s son Sammy. Della and Basil, an older couple, plus Mason, who runs the Black Cat Cafe were also excellent characters, and I really liked Ben. It did, however, take me a long time to warm up to Peyton. She came across as selfish at the beginning of the book, especially in her relationship with Ben. This is not really a spooky haunted house story so much as a mystery set in a house with hauntings. The book held my interest but there were points that frustrated me. I felt the entire plot thread with Theo’s drug-addled ex could have been eliminated, and several things (especially regarding the home’s original owner, and Peyton’s grandfather) didn’t ring true. I also had issues with how the school responded to Sammy’s consent forms. Although the writing was good, there were editing problems throughout--missed words and typos---but not enough to ruin the story. The book could have used a better edit. Finally, the author had a weird habit of summarizing parts of the story every now and then, as if a new reader had just stepped into the story and needed to be told what happened previously. It made me wonder if the novel had been stitched together from a serialized work. The Haunting of Abram Mansion is part of the “Riveting Haunted House Mystery Series” books written by different authors. This novel, despite the issues I mentioned, was certainly enjoyable enough for me to try others in the series.

As they attempt to finish the divorce mediation they agreed on, an inheritance from her maternal grandfather comes to light. A mansion - six months, Ben and Peyton living together - and then it can be sold. Ben would like things to stay more or less the same as they are, and would rather not divorce.

Peyton would like to go off on a great adventure - or even a little one. For her, this is just a delay of the divorce she wants. For him, one more chance to try and keep them together. They really do make great friends, but the massive old mansion holds many dark secrets, as well as some unwelcome wild life, bats and ghosts. Always awkward when you can see the ghosts, some of your friends and family can see them, and your beau cannot. Lethally dangerous in some instances too. For the ghosts, as well as Ben and Peyton, to move on, some of the darkness needs to be resolved, and old wounds healed. Lots of things that go bump in the night, changes to relationships, and relationships that reveal some dark intentions. My honest opinion? Awesome KU read! I read this book on Kindle Unlimited, and also received a free advance copy.

Peyton soon finds herself in the middle of aiding the ghosts, keeping them a secret from Ben, and forming a friendship with 6-year-old Sammy who has befriended one of the ghosts. While a bit slow moving at the beginning as you are being introduced to all of the characters and getting a past history on the house, once the strange occurrences happen and the mystery unfolds, I found myself glued to reading until the very end. I found the last few chapters a complete surprise and loved how the author brought the story full circle. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    A lovely read and good ghost story The story was really well told. O Peyton was a character that you could quickly learned to like and love.

I do believe that there were times that the descriptions a former events were related to often for the reader. For example, there were times that the author would say that someone had had an injury in the past and explain it as if this was booked to as opposed to only a couple of chapters previous. That was annoying to read. However, there are plenty of opportunities to really become acquainted with the characters. I did predict the protagonist and antagonist in this particular book. However I am the type who can do that easily. The other twists and turns caught my bu surprise. I would recommend this book.

    Love the ghost story and the mystery but the majority of the book just made me sad. With abusive spouses, getting away too often ends in death. But with loving spouses, "growing away" from them is a selfish effort. My opinion. But on to the story.

    I wanted to like this book. I think they forgot to edit it. Weird recaps or summaries of what has happened in prior chapters. Apparently their are unlimited funds to restore a Victorian mansion that has a collapsed roof among other major issues. Sorry but this needed to be explained. Given the characters are in their late 20’s and only have one car and the husband is an independent technical writer and the wife had a failed photography business. Much longer then it needs to be.

We are told the husband is a polite, caring, gentleman but then he answers for his wife at restaurants without knowing what she wants? Makes no sense. Close - but not ready for publication.

    Terrific book... My one complaint has nothing to do with the book. This review format is extremely annoying.

There are many "The Haunting of..." books on Amazon. Some are good, but this book by Ms. Clarke was really enjoyable. There is laughter, sarcasm and some sections that really got my heart pounding.

    I loved this book about a couple going through a divorce and the struggle they go through in order to finalize everything. I loved that this story is suspenseful and creepy but also a little sad because it involves kids. This writer has a way with words that trap you and make you loose track of time. I love this writer's stories because even though they are fiction they seem like they could actually happen someday. Read this book you will not be disappointed. I look forward to reading more from I loved this book about a couple going through a divorce and the struggle they go through in order to finalize everything.

    Good read but could use an editor I'd classify this as a cozy mystery/paranormal book; if you enjoy those two genres, this book is for you. The book would have benefited from editing. Some story elements were drawn out to the point they became redundant. Several times the female protagonist rehashed back story the reader had already been given; definitely elements the reader would have recalled without having to read it multiple times. A quarter of this book should have been cut.

A quarter of this book should have been cut. That would have tightened up the story and kept the third quarter of the book from dragging. Overall an easy and engaging read.
