Publisher's Summary

When Sarah McKinley is finally able to buy and restore the historic Florida mansion that she has always loved, she dismisses the horror stories of past residents vanishing and a long-dead housekeeper who practiced black magic. Then, in the midst of renovations, she makes a grim discovery. Hidden within the walls of Sarah's dream house are the remains of dozens of bodies - some dating back over a century.

The door to the past is blown wide open when Caleb Anderson, a private investigator, shows up at the mansion. He believes several current missing-persons cases are linked to the house and its dark past. Working together to find the connection and stop a contemporary killer, Sarah and Caleb are compelled to research the history of the haunted house, growing closer to each other even as the solution to the murders eludes them.

But there is one who knows the truth...a spirit who follows every move they make. Soon Caleb begins to fear that if he can't stay a step ahead, he could lose Sarah to a killer with an ability to transcend time in a quest for blood and sacrifice.

Good story!

The overall story was good. But then Heather Graham has always been a good story teller!! No disappointment with this one at all!!

The narrator, while great at storytelling, had problems with the variety of voices needed. The biggest problem was all the men sounded like boys. She was not able to create the depth or resonance for a believable mans voice. I’m sure this is not an easy task. There were other nonconformities but I know it couldn’t be helped.

Overall, another great story. I am looking forward to the next.

Horrible narration

The story was okay but I kept getting wrapped up in my dislike for the narrator’s voice. She just didn’t have enough range and all the characters sounded the same.

Good story

Good story but a little hard to get into the narrator. I'm use to a little more inflection. I also felt like they were in a hurry to tell the story but i had to really pay attention so I knew what was going on. I'm just used to falling into stories easier. I love Heather Graham.

Same old same

This is just ground covered previously by Graham. Tired old story line, no surprises or new plot. Even the ghost don't appear until 2/3 of the way through the story and then I'm not sure why they even bothered. The simpering female lead was too stupid to even gain any sympathy. If you are a Heather Graham fan and have heard her earlier works, don't bother with this one!

Overall

I have never been a fan of little girl, high pitched, whining voices. I think the overall performance would have been vastly improved by a different reader. That said, this reader may appeal to others more than myself.

Disappointed to say the least

What would have made Unhallowed Ground better?

Story presented three mysteries at core. Left us hanging for the answer with no explanation for one. Solving or explaining third mystery.

Has Unhallowed Ground turned you off from other books in this genre?

No. I have read many of her books.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Big disappointment and confusion.

Narrator was annoying.

The story was pretty good but I couldn't really enjoy it because of the narrator.
