Gardening with a Ghost, Haunted Love By Amanda Meuwissen, Narrated by: Kevin Earlywine, Curtis Michael Holland, Amanda Meuwissen

A unique narration that was very entertaining and an interesting mystery case. Gardening with a Ghost is reviewed by Lesetiger and Jacquie.

From the blurb:

Peter Thorne has a secret—he can bring the dead back to life. When Peter’s mother died, she passed him the touch of life and made him promise to use his abilities wisely. Unable to bring her back and afraid of being caught or causing too much imbalance in the world, Peter vowed to use his gift only on plants. After all, with people, sometimes dead is better.

Or at least that's what Peter thinks, until he takes a gardening job at Benes Manor. The mystery of a missing girl, an old gothic home, and the whispers and tempting caresses of a ghost in his room lead him to delve deeper into his powers than ever before. Perhaps he can find the missing girl and the origins of his ghostly visitor. If only he knew who to trust—and who and what to touch. 

Gardening with a Ghost is a standalone novel, originally part of the MM paranormal romance multi-author collaboration Haunted Love.

Jacquie's Review:

The set up for the narration was unique and unusual, but also very entertaining. The story is told from Peter's pov throughout and Kevin Earlywine does the majority of the narration. Any voices that are not Peter's are done by Curtis Michael Holland for the male characters, and author, Amanda Meuwissen for the female characters. I found this to be a really great way of getting the story across and would listen to this style of narration again for sure.

While I figured out part of the mystery, the story was entertaining and I loved Peter and Arthur together. Peter was easy to like, he just wanted to help the family solve the mystery of where their young daughter had gone to. Almost all of the story is set at the manor house with a small cast of characters adding to the atmosphere.

For me, this is the highlight of the Haunted Love series and this book goes into my re-listen pile.

Rating: 5 Stars

Lesetiger's Review:

I loved everything about this story: the well-written main protagonists Peter and Arthur, the murder mystery, Peter's investigation, the setting and the wonderful writing style.

Peter is trying to find the missing daughter of a family. During Peter's investigation he meets the ghost Arthur and starts to develop feelings for him. But is that even possible?

The story captivated me from beginning to end.

I absolutely loved the narration of the three narrators. The main part was narrated by Kevin Earlywine, who did a really good job. It was entertaining to listen to him. Amanda Meuwissen also did a great job reading the female side characters, just as Michael Curtis Holland performed the male side characters very well.

I was thrilled with this audio book.
