Audiobook Blog Tour & GIveaway: The Haunting of Hillwood Farm by Kathryn Knight

Audiobook Blog Tour: The Haunting of Hillwood Farm by Kathryn Knight

Author: Kathryn Knight

Narrator: Kristin James

Length: 5 hours 18 minutes

Publisher: Kathryn Knight

Released: Apr. 15, 2019

Genre: Paranormal Romance; Suspense

After tragedy strikes, Callie Sinclair is left with a gift she never wanted - the ability to communicate with ghosts. But when a desperate widow begs for her help, she reluctantly agrees to investigate the strange occurrences at Hillwood Farm. She quickly realizes she’s dealing with a dangerous presence beyond anything she’s ever experienced, and something else becomes equally clear - the only other living person in the house, Mrs. Turner’s handsome grandson, thinks she’s a scam artist. While she’d prefer to just ignore him, her heart beats a little faster every time he’s nearby.

Luke Turner doesn’t believe in spirits. He’s moved back to restore the family farm, but living on the property serves a dual purpose - he can watch out for his grandmother. He’s not happy about the sudden appearance of a self-described psychic, or his inexplicable attraction to her. His initial suspicions crumble as evidence points to an actual haunting, but he’s still determined not to fall for Callie - the past has taught him it’s best to avoid relationships.

As Callie is drawn deeper into the mystery, she becomes the target of a vengeful spirit, and Luke can no longer fight his feelings for her. Unable to resist their desire, passion ignites…even as the paranormal activity escalates to a final deadly confrontation.

  My Review:

5 Out Of 5 Stars

Genre: Ghosts, Heart-Wrenching, Mystery, Romance, Scary, Supernatural, Suspense--

Cassie did not want to seek out ghosts, but sweet old Alice was insistent that she come to her house and see if she can communicate with the ghost of Alice's recently passed husband. But Cassie soon realizes that it is not Alice's husband haunting the house, but instead it is another spirit with much sinister motives. Luke does not believe in ghosts and wants Cassie to leave his grandmother alone, but when he gets to know Cassie he realizes that she intrigues him, even when he thinks she is lying. But soon things are happening that Luke can't explain and the two need to team up to really understand what is going on.

This is the second audiobook I have listened to/read by Kathryn and I appreciate her stories. She creates scary atmosphere and great character dynamics, making her books really enjoyable and fast reads. This story was roughly 5.5 hours in length, allowing this to be perfect to listen to in a single afternoon. Kathryn makes her ghosts scary, building my tension and keeping me on the edge of my seat, while at the same time the scenarios are realistic, as if this story could really happen. I appreciate her storytelling qualities, while at the same times reminding the reader that this is still very much a romance too. Kathryn walks a nice line between a horror ghost story, a surprising mystery and a sweet romance- all three genres I love and mesh so well together. I am pretty sure that I am sounding like a fan girl at this moment but I really enjoyed this story and I can't wait to get my hands on another scary romance audiobook written by her.

I listened to the audiobook and the narrator, Kristin, was fantastic, keeping me engaged in the story and the drama the entire time. The view point switched between both Callie and Luke and the narrator was able to give them individual voice and personality. I am sure that this would make a great read in general, but listening to this story really made me feel like I was watching it all unfold in front of me, as if I was part of it. I highly recommend picking this one up as an audiobook.

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Kathryn Knight. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Kathryn Knight spends a great deal of time in her fictional world, where mundane chores don’t exist and daily life involves steamy romance, dangerous secrets, and spooky suspense. Kathryn writes contemporary romance spiked with mysterious hauntings as well as YA paranormal romance filled with forbidden love. Her novels are award-winning #1 Amazon and Barnes & Noble Bestsellers and RomCon Reader-Rated picks. When she’s not reading or writing, Kathryn spends her time catching up on those mundane chores, driving kids around, and teaching fitness classes. She lives on beautiful Cape Cod with her husband, their two sons, and a number of rescued pets.


Narrator Bio

Kristin “KJ” James was born and raised in the Nashville, TN area. Acting has always been a passion of hers. Starting on the stage as early as preschool, KJ pursued her passion into college where she received a BA in Communication with a double emphasis in Theatre and Public Relations from Mississippi State University. After college she found herself more and more drawn to voice overs. Several classes, coaching sessions, seminars, research, and a closet-turned-studio later, and she now records and produces audiobooks on a regular basis. She has also done several radio commercials for clients such as Advance Financial, TriStar Health, and GAC. Her ultimate dream is to work in video games and animation, so hopefully in the not-too-distant future you'll hear her in an RPG or cartoon. When she’s not in her booth, you can find her crocheting, playing video games, or running agility with her dog, Phoenix.
