Summary

Lorelei Fischer desperately needed somewhere to spend the night, and, as if by magic, Moonlit Shores Manor appeared.

But there’s a cost for everything, magic included.

More than willing to escape her old life and fill the open position at the bizarre bed and breakfast, Lorelei quickly learns of the dangers waiting for her. She’s only human, after all, and casting spells, shifting into wild animals, and caring for mythical creatures aren’t exactly in the wheelhouse of a former barista and art school failure. At the manor, faeries might pull tricks on you while washing linens, werewolves might try to rough up your bellboy, and a shadowy presence in the woods might be your undoing if you ask too many questions.

With the help of her supernatural, live-in coworkers, Moonlit Shores Manor could be Lorelei’s sanctuary from her past mistakes. Though as the truth of the manor’s history unravels, it could just as likely become another place Lorelei must flee to save not just her reputation but her life.

Superb book,perfect narration

I loved this book. Great fun story with superb narration that really makes the book special. Lorelei finds herself staying at an quirky bed and breakfast full of unusual characters if shifters, witches and faeries can be classed as unusual. Being human puts her at a real disadvantage. The writing is wonderful, the dialogue is funny and the characters engaging, From the drunken Karaoke duel to the scary ending its just wonderful. I cannot praise the narrator enough, the tone, voice and range are superb. Makes this a joy to listen to. I am really looking forward to the next instalment, I received a complimentary copy from Storyorigin and am leaving a honest voluntary review.

Fantastic first in series

This is a fantastic first in series. Lorelei is looking for a fresh start, she is running away from her old life. When she arrives at Moonlit Shore Manor. no one realises that she is human and she is offered a job. Now she needs to pretend to be a changeling. If she is discovered the new life and the friends she has made will all vanish.
This story has it all mystery. adventure and humour. and perhaps some romance in the future.
A great listen. I look forward to reading and listening to more by this author.

Loved It

I really liked this story. It was full of magic, friendship & adventure. The author did a great job with the characters and the story kept you guessing all the time. It was also full of humor which I love. My favorite part was the singing challenge. What a riot, I was laughing at Lorelei. I see there are 2 more in the series & I hope they become audio books as well. Great story.

Great listen

I loved the story and the world. It was a fun take on paranormal creatures and had some great world building. I loved the characters so much. They each felt so real and made me love every moment of it. The story drew me in from the moment I hit play and kept me entertained the entire time. I can’t wait to see what’s going to happen next and how certain questions will be answered and what’s going to happen with certain things we learned about in this first book.

The Weary Traveler

As Lorelei tries to flee her problems she stumbles upon a whole new world. One filled with magic and magical creatures. Can she make a fresh start, or is this just another thing she’ll need to run from?

A. K. Caggiano has set the stage for what is sure to be an interesting and exciting series. I’m looking forward unraveling the secrets and finding out more about all of the characters we were introduced to.

Ellen Quay brought the story and characters to life. I was entertained by her performance, and I look forward to listening to more of her narrations.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Great Series Starter

The author did a good job with this book. I do feel like there could have been a little more refining done to give some of the characters some more substance, but hopefully these characters will grow as the series goes on. The narrator did a great job bringing this book to life and made this an entertaining listen.

I received an audiobook of this and am voluntarily leaving my honest review.

Written for A Young Adult Audience

Lorelie (MC) is running away from a marriage to a man she likes but does Not love or want a Forever with. She is Driving and lost and is so tired that she says out loud I wish I could find a place to rest and sleep. This is a fun and delightful story with sarcasm in there too. I like the Story but it seemed written for a Young audience and I have trouble believing Lorelie does not know about Fairies, shapeshifters, and such, how Naive.

Book 1 - Vacancy

Book 1 in Caggiano's new series Vacancy. I really enjoyed the smooth narration on this one as well as the story line with all the paranormal characters. A great intro with mysteries and twists and turns. Our main character is Lorelei, a human who's somehow found herself at the Moonlit Manor which seems to be a paranormal world all in of itself. Her typical behavior is when the going gets tough she gets going but when the going gets tough for her here - will she stay or flee as usual?!? I can't say enough how much I love these characters and I can't wait for more!

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Interesting beginning.

Lorelei was a interesting and likeable character. She stumbles upon the supernatural world and we are instantly immersed in this world. It caught my attention early on but as the book progressed my attention waned. The story had a variety of supernaturals, humor, and villains. Honestly, I’m not sure if I will continue the story. I slowed down for me in pacing halfway through and I struggled with the book. I’m not sure if I will continue with this series. I would recommend this book to young adult readers as the characters seemed to be in their early 20s and anyone who enjoys reading supernatural books.
I listened to the audiobook and I enjoyed the narrator. She used a variety of voices and tones and it was very easy to follow along.
