    Description

    Cash Fraser is planning revenge, and to get it he needs the perfect woman. So he hires her. Abigail Butler has lost nearly everything in her life and she's about to lose the home she loves.

    Cash meets Abby, who is posing as a paid escort, and the minute he does he knows he's willing to pay for more than Abby being his pretend girlfriend. A lot more. Abby needs the money or the last thing that links her to her dead family and husband will be gone. The deal is struck, but both Cash and Abby get more than they bargained for.

    Cash realizes very quickly that Abby isn't what she seems, and while he changes strategies, Abby discovers that Cash's legacy, Penmort Castle, is like all the tales say - very, very haunted. Making matters worse, the ghost in residence wants her dead.

    Abby's found herself in the battle of her life, so she enlists Mrs. Truman, her nosy neighbor; Jenny, her no-nonsense friend; Cassandra McNabb, white witch and clairvoyant with a penchant for wearing scarves (and lots of them); and Angus McPherson, dyed-in-the-wool Scot (which means he hunts ghosts in a kilt) to fight the vicious ghost who has vowed that she will rest at nothing to kill the true, abiding love of the master of Penmort.

    Great book nearly ruined by poor narration

    If you could sum up Penmort Castle in three words, what would they be?

    Romance plus ghosts. FYI - the haunting in this story takes a while to get to. It's not really creepy or spine-tingling, so if you're looking for something like that, this might not be for you. The ghosts operate a bit more like actual characters.

    Would you be willing to try another one of Abby Craden’s performances?

    I actively avoid Abby Craden. She cannot do accents to save her life. There were times when Jenny (Abby's friend) sounded Australian or South African, Mrs. Truman was incredibly annoying, and I have no idea what kind of accent Cash had but it wasn't Scottish (or even a hint of it). Unfortunately, Ms. Craden has narrated additional books in this series so I am unable to completely avoid her. This is incredibly disappointing. A good narrator should add to the story being told, not distract me from it.

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It's Kristen Ashley. Of course I wanted to listen to it all in one sitting - even with a bad narrator.

    Any additional comments?

    Penmort Castle, and the rest of the books in this series, are a lot of fun. If you're familiar with Kristen Ashley, you know what to expect. Just sprinkle in some ghosts.

    Oh, those accents!

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Probably no. I had enjoyed the story when I read it but it was very difficult to listen to. The accents that were not American were terrible! I couldn't work out where Jenny was even from until I was told! Her accent was some sort of bad cross between Australian, New Zealander, South African and English. The accents for everybody but our heroine kept taking me out of the story.

    What didn’t you like about Abby Craden’s performance?

    See above.

    Not KA'S best efforts

    KA is one of my top three favorite authors and I admire the way that she she writes in a variety of settings; instead of sticking to a cookie cutter storyline. However, this story seemed forced. The story could have been complete without the "ghost element ", at all. As a matter of fact, the climax of the ghost encounter came across as silly. This down graded the novel from good to passable. That being said, this won't keep me from downloading the next book of the series because KA'S fair is better than many authors' best effort. This novel also wasn't as emotionally deep as most of her other novels, either. Sometimes, that isn't a bad thing. If a novel is so deep that the reader/listener spends the entire experience shedding tears, the "great escape", isn't an escape, at all but, rather an emotional beating.

    I know that this review is a list of contradictions but, this is how the novel left me feeling. is it worth a credit? It's KA, so yeah, you likley won't feel like this novel was a complete waste of your time.

    Book was good but narrator was not.

    The narrator was not very good. The accent she did was bad. Almost ruined the whole story.

    Narrator comment.

    Narrator couldn't do an Irish brogue, very distracting, would have preferred not even trying, became annoying after awhile.

    Great book

    As a long time fan this book has the intrigue, action and of course romance. The last series I wasn't so hot on. This one has the Rock Chick genius that I know Ms Ashley has in her.

    How could you?

    KA is one of the best writers in her genre. So why ruin a new series with this narrator? So disappointing. The story's fun and quirky.

    Who you gonna call?? 👻

    Abby's narration, was hands down the best thing about this book. With the ambiance of crimson peak, even it's ghostly story line wasn't scary. The writing was good, but it did seem to drag on at times. The intimacy between Cash and Abby was a little bland without all the heated details. And the ending felt like Ghostbusters should have been called 😄. I did find this entertaining, but I'm just not sure if I'll be buying the next one.
