Sintesi dell'editore

Sloane Osborne is a paranormal real estate agent in the business of selling haunted houses, but, in truth, she’s only searching for one ghost. And her time is running out.

It’s the 366th day after her fiancé’s death. Michael used to like putting things off for “a year and a day” - so tonight’s the night. Sloane will do anything to make contact with him before the clock strikes midnight. When she gets a call to check out a home in Waukesha, Wisconsin, it’s the last place she thinks Michael would contact her.

Sloane is dead wrong.

Great story, Great Characters, Great Narration

Haunts for Sale Book 1 First Contact had a great narrative flow. Never wasted words on unimportant information. Everything was needed. The story had some good, spooky elements and an enjoyable mystery. The love story was well developed and the idea behind the story was very original.

The narration was great. Kate Tyler did an excellent job of bringing the characters to life.

I requested a free review copy of this audiobook and I am leaving a voluntary and honest review.

First Contact

Sloane is on a mission to make contact with her dead fiancé before he crosses over. Unless he already has, because today is the last day she thinks she has to find out. But their is only one issue she’s never seen a ghost before. Her mentor has , but really neither are sure she ever will, until she walks in a house full of ghosts and starts seeing them all. Things get a bit crazy from here on out. Realizing that the current owner of the house could have possible been a serial killer really puts the story in a new light. The story is so edge of your seat waiting for what happens next I could not shut it off. I ended up staying up all night to finish and it’s one of those stories that sticks with you. You kinda see it coming but there are still some surprises. I still may need water! Fantastic job on the narration.

Simple Story

I love the core idea of the story but was disappointed in the execution (the story itself, not the narration) The main lead lacks common sense and makes reckless decisions. The story itself is very simple with no real depth or explanation to it. The narration was fantastic. I enjoyed the pacing and character voices. Overall this is a simple story that I hope the author goes into more depth with in future installments because the core idea is a great one.

She is has been searching haunted houses and even makes a business of finding haunted houses for people to purchase. Well she walks in with more then she can bargain for when yes, she sees her boyfriend one more time, but also hears woman crying out for thirst from the basement but no one is there at the house she is staying at. And it gets worse and worse from there. You have to read this book. I couldn't stop listening it to. It was one of the better books I've read this year. And boy wait til the twist. Your like what????

Narration Win!

I’d love to first talk about the narrator Kat Tyler! She was really awesome with this story. Everything felt right when she spoke. She had a clear voice and was good with all the emotions that needed to be evoked. Such as happy, love, and fear during the supernatural creepy bits. I loved the life she gave these characters and especially the villain! I give the audio a 5/5!

The story itself is also fun! You do have to just go with the flow on this one since it has a pretty odd premise. But I found myself really hooked into it by the first chapter. Green does a good job with the backstory and place setting. I do wish there was more on the villain as he is just such a cool character! And I also wish some of the characters would not be so easily misled lol. But overall it was a good story and I look forward to the next in the series!! I give the book a 4/5

First Contact: Haunts for Sale Series, Book 1

If you had a chance to connect with the dead, would you? If someone that you love died, would you try to reach out to them? How long would you try to reach out before giving up? Green has an interesting take on the horror aspect of the spirit world. This story is captivating and will pull the reader into a warped world of dead women and a thirst for more of this series.

Sloane has been trying to contact her beloved fiancé for one year and a day. This is her last chance and it has taken her to Wisconsin. She has never really seen anything unusual like ghosts or spirits, but that doesn’t circumvent her belief one bit. She is determined that her fiancé, Michael, will reach out to her one last time. Killed in a car accident and taken from her way too soon, she feels jaded and her resolve to contact Michael in the spirit world is persistently strong. But, she doesn’t plan on being contacted by anyone else…much less A LOT of women who are asking for water. The house in Wisconsin is known for being haunted and has been vacant for a while with the previous owner in the hospital dying of lung cancer. This is her job, finding haunted houses and selling them to prospective buyers. But this house…Sloan knows that something is going on and she is determined to get to the bottom of this pit of mystery. Even if…Michael and the women warn her of the danger that she is getting herself into by pursuing the case, she can’t sell the house without finding out all of its secrets.

Green has a superb story-line and wonderful character development in this first installment. Her characters are interesting, determined, mysterious and quite deceptive. This review is complimenting the audiobook; however, the narrator reads the story with ease and a fast pace, leading the reader to believe that the book is well-written. Tyler perceives Sloan in an entertaining way; her narration allows the reader to understand her feelings, her beliefs and her history with the job, friends, and her fiancé. If you are a reader of paranormal horror, you may want to try this series. Since this is the first installment, the reader can jump right in.

A copy of this book was provided to Turning Another Page by the Audiobookworm Promotions, but this in no way affects our honest opinion of the book or the review that has been written. We provide a five-star rating for First Contact by Kat Green.

Spine Chilling.

As you can tell from my rating I thought that this audio book was outstanding in both, the writing and the narration.

Michael always liked to put things off for a year and a day so sloane was ready for him that night, though she was surprised that her job as a paranormal estate agent takes her to Wisconsin on that day. What she wasn’t ready for was the alarming sequence of occurrences that followed.

As Sloane follows her instincts and the evidence she is drawn into a dark, dangerous and disturbing series of events.

I started listening to this audio book and I couldn’t stop until the very last word. It had my heart beating faster and me sitting on the figurative edge of my seat.

KAT de Falla and Rachel GREEN (The duo writing as Kat Green) are immensely talented authors, from the first to the last word this book holds you in its grip. This book has all the elements of a well spun tale and I am looking forward to more of their work.

Kate Tyler is a hugely skilled narrator. She brings every element of feeling to the narration and not only is it clear who she is speaking as but the emotion is expressed in every word. The storytelling part of the narration is amazing at drawing you in to the atmosphere. It will be a pleasure to listen to more of her work in the future.

Ghosts in the House

This is one of those books that you just have to throw disbelief and credulity to the wind and enjoy the story for what it is. The good thing is it’s well-told and fun enough to keep me going.

Yes, it’s sadly true that the protagonist, Sloane, is TSTL and also driven by an obsesssion to see her fiance one last time before he leaves this dimension for the next because, you see, he died a year ago. To be more specific, he died 365 days, 21 hours and 36 minutes ago so she only has 2 hours and some minutes before his “year and a day” is up. This was my first hint that I was going to have some trouble with this book as obsession of any kind is a red flag for me. Add to that the location; Michael and Sloane didn’t live and he didn’t die in Wisconsin so why would his ghostly presence be there?

Sloane also is blind to all sorts of hints and clues that maybe, just maybe, she shouldn’t do certain things but, hey, that’s what TSTL is all about, right? Anyway, she stumbles into what could be a very dangerous situation when she discovers a house overflowing with ghosts and, at last, her obsession takes second place to trying to help these ghosts escape this mortal plane, hopefully before she becomes one of them. Oh, and there’s a potential romance in her future if her and Michael’s best friend, Jonah, can find her before it’s too late.

Seriously, I did enjoy this story and I especially liked the narrator, Kate Tyler. Her tone and cadence are really pleasing and she does different voices, male and female, quite well. The next book in the series, Second Sight, isn’t out in audio yet but I’ll be looking for it.

Good book!

I’ll be honest, I went back and forth for quite a while on whether I wanted to listen to First Contact or not. I was pleasantly surprised when I bit the bullet and signed up! The storyline was interesting… losing your love, your almost husband, and searching for his ghost. Somehow I was even able to grasp the paranormal real estate agent. I think what really made this work for me was that I didn’t take it 100% seriously. It was a bit wonky and something’s seemed off. However, the bad guy… good job Kat Green! I loved how the bad guy came about. I would have LOVED a bit more background on his story and how he came to be who he is.

I really liked Jonah and the relationship that building into there. There was so much good and fun in this story that it far outweighed the areas that made me roll my eyes. I did roll my eyes a bit. I mean, I’m not an FBI agent like Jonah is and I say that fake call a mile away!! I was pleasantly surprised in the horror area of this book though. I didn’t expect so much graphic description but you could see the scenes unfold before you!

Kate Tyler was a great narrator. This was the first book that I’ve listened to with her narration and I really enjoyed it. She speaks clear and concise, yet she shows great emotion in each world. I could feel the suspense she portrayed; I could feel the nerves, the fear. Great job!! I’ll definitely look for the next book once released!
