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.

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.

Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐
A sinister haunting, a romance, and some help from the other side keep The Haunting of Hillwood Farm moving at a fast pace from start to finish. The story isn't overly scary, but it does have its moments where the creep-factor is high, and we get a healthy dose of danger as Callie gets more than she bargained for when she reluctantly agrees to help a grieving widow. The romance is a reluctant one for Callie and Luke with both of them dealing with the fallout of past relationships. This pair is sexy but not on page, and while the romance is an important part of the story, Kathryn Knight has done terrifically blended it so that it doesn't overshadow the haunting. The tension builds steadily with ever-increasing dangerous situations and the characters are likable and relatable. The only drawback for me is that I felt like the conclusion was a bit abrupt and a little out there, but that didn't diminish my enjoyment of the story as a whole.
The book translates well to audio, and Kristin James does a solid job with the story-telling. Each voice is unique without going overboard or sounding cartoony, and James injects that sense of urgency during intense scenes wonderfully. 
All in all, The Haunting of Hillwood Farm didn't scare me, but it certainly held my interest and kept me entertained. 

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.
