Summary

The complicated history of the Brandt Mansion has been long forgotten.

Few in the small, remote town of Tibbetts, Connecticut, even remember the estate and the insidious events that took place years earlier. Struggling with writer’s block and a tight deadline for his new novel, David Pragmore suggests a retreat away from Hartford to his wife, Susan, in order to find fresh inspiration. The publishers want David’s new book to shine in the horror genre, so when David reads about the odd manor with a haunted past, it seems like the perfect place to recapture his muse. But David and Susan quickly discover that some stories aren’t meant to be told.

The Haunting of Saxton Mansion

Author Rob Hooper and his wife, Janet, are looking for a quiet place to live. The grandiose, isolated Victorian-style relic is everything they could want. A mysterious, widowed owner offers them a deal that can’t be passed up. But they quickly discover that some things are too good to be true.

Loved it but....

Loved the stories but one of the narrators sounded like a bad ai with pronunciation. It was painful to listen to.

Such a difficult listen.

While the story could have gone somewhere, I felt it fell flat. I felt like characters jumped in and out, couldn't get and idea of the age of the main characters and one just happens to disappear after she does all of the initial work, leaving the husband to stupidly go after the bad guy alone leaving the guy to play hero. It felt hollow and trite in places. I felt the end was severely lacking and like it was quick and sloppy.
The narration felt like someone was reading it for the first time and didn't understand the proper use of grammar. Sentences were read in a choppy manner and it was rather distracting. I couldn't even start the second book because the narrator's voice was just plain annoying. I didn't finish the entire listen. The first story was enough for me. sad I wasted a credit.

Good Story

I liked the story, but I think it is more for teens. It's good to know Alexandria Clark has added other stories to box sets. I was getting tired of The haunting of Payton Manor.

A House of Ghosts

This haunted house collection of stories was mostly entertaining and interesting. one of the female narrators couldn't pronounce the word...patio and a few other words. that was irritating and confusing.

Not Bad

The first story kind of lost me but loved the narrator. The Haunting of Saxton house series I really enjoyed however the narrator would have been better if the woman that read the first story narrated it. The last I heard already but really enjoyed it.

Good story maybe...

Good story, although long winded in some parts. What I disliked the most, reason I stopped listening was the telling of location at the beginning of EVERY chapter. Yes, it may sound petty, but it drove me batty. Like the listeners couldn't tell they never left the house from chapter to chapter.
