Audio Blog Tour: First Contact by Kat Green

Author: Kat Green Narrator: Kate Tyler Length: 5 hours 24 minutes Publisher: The Wild Rose Press⎮20 Genre: Horror Series: Haunts for Sale, Book 1 Release date: Nov. 9, 2017
Sloane Osborne is a paranormal realtor in the business of selling haunted houses but, in truth, she’s only searching for one ghost. And her time is running out. It’s the 366th day after her fiancĂ©’s death. Michael used to like putting things off for “a year and a day”—so tonight’s the night. Sloane will do anything to make contact with him before the clock strikes midnight. When she gets a call to check out a home in Waukesha, Wisconsin, it’s the last place she thinks Michael would contact her. Sloane is dead wrong.

First Contact is the first book in a series abut a realtor who tries to prove that houses are haunted for certain buyers.  She uses this cover to explore and try to make contact with her dead fiance.  On the final day, she ends up in a house that has more than just the ghost she is looking for.

The premise of this series sounded unique and I was happy I gave the audio book a try.  While the mystery aspect of the book wasn't too hard to figure out, I though the horror elements more than made up for figuring out the whodunit early on.  The book is genuinely creepy and confirmed my reluctance to go into dark basements.  The main character, Sloane was interesting and I wanted to know more about her.  She seems like a character that would be able to carry a series. 

I won't tell any plot points as it would ruin the book. My only complaint was the random sex scene that showed up in the middle of the book.  It was weird and seemed out of place.  I think the book could have benefited from it being left out. The narrator did a great job of reading the book.  Listening to it added to the creep factor.  I definitely recommend it for ghost story fans.

About the Author: Kat Green

Kat Green is really the alias of authors KAT de Falla and Rachel GREEN.
Rachel Green has always believed in ghosts but saw her first full body apparition while working at an old movie theater in college. When she met Kat de Falla at a writer’s workshop, she knew she’d met a kindred spirit – one who was also sensitive to the hereafter. And after bonding on a few ghost adventures, Kat Green was born.

Kat lived in a haunted house for too long. When things really heated up, she had several paranormal teams investigate, but things only got worse. When her mother suggested they contact a shaman, she agreed to come, saying she had been waiting for Kat’s call. The home was cleansed and sold. When she paired up with Rachel Green, the idea of co-writing a book with a paranormal real estate agent seemed perfect.

With their combined paranormal “experiences”, they decided to combine their creative mojo. That’s when Sloane Osborne, Paranormal Real Estate agent, and the HAUNTS FOR SALE series was born.
