The House that Adelia Built AUDIO BOOK by Mya O’Malley – Review by Carly Vogler

The House that Adelia Built by Mya O’Malley is an amazing Paranormal Romance. Mya O’Malley is a wonderful author and never ceases to amaze me!

The way O’Malley is able to connect the different stories and really help you feel like you are in the story is unbelievable. At around 5 hours long, this is a story you won’t want to put off.

Adelia was the lighthouse keeper’s wife in the 1800’s. Hope is a present day tour guide for the property, but feels an unusual calling to the old building. She’s falling in love with a new man, but still feels caught in old feelings, and the unexplainable mystery of the
lighthouse. As the truth comes out piece by piece, Hope is forced to face reality and overcome her fears.

48 The House that Adelia Built AUDIO BOOK by Mya O’Malley – Review by Kayla Bullock

The House that Adelia Built intertwines the stories of 2 women, Adelia and Hope. Adelia-1875, living as a wife to Augustus, the lighthouse keeper. Hope-2017, living by the lighthouse and giving tours of the old property. When Hope starts having dreams that she can’t explain, she begins to dig into the history of the lighthouse. A delight to listen to, with unexpected twists and turns and an ending I didn’t see coming. The pacing of the story is great. The reason for 4 instead of 5stars is that I felt like the time with Adelia jumped around a lot and should have been smoother

The House that Adelia Built AUDIO BOOK by Mya O’Malley – Review by Bobbi Wagner

This is  my first audible story by this author but I will say that it is my favorite.   I enjoyed this narrator and the story she told.  With this story it is like listening to two different stories in one.  I think the narrator did a good job of making the two stories separate but yet one and not confusing.  There are a few characters in this story that are lovable and connectable.  This story revolves around a lighthouse. The first couple moved there after they were married back in 1800. After a while he started changing and she was confused on why.  Then it brings us to the current day where you have Hope who is a woman who is a little lost and has low self esteem. She is having nightmares at night and is not sure what they mean. When she starts investigating why she is having these dreams, what will she uncover? There is something about the lighthouse that has drawn her to it.   She also meets a man who they spend quite a bit of time together. What will happen when they start developing feelings for each other? I enjoyed listening to  both stories about the past and the present.  I really enjoyed listening to this and I highly recommend it.

The House That Adelia Built by Mya O’Malley

Narrated by Vianna Vigneau

Four Stars

 

The House That Adelia Built is a Paranormal/ Romance/Mystery set in a lighthouse by Mya O’Malley. This is the second book I have listened to by Ms. O’Malley, and it is my new favorite. This book hooked me from the very first page. The dual stories were full of mystery and intrigue. Hope and Adelia’s characters really touched me. I love how the author jumped between the late 1800’s and present day. This story will pull on your heartstrings and have you rooting for Hope to learn to trust. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a great romance, or an intriguing ghost story. 

This is the first narration from Vianna Vigneau and I have to say she really makes this story pop. Her voice is easy on the ears, and she really helped me connect with the characters.

The House that Adelia Built AUDIO BOOK by Mya O’Malley – Review by Lorralei Hoerner

This story was great! I loved the two different characters of Adelia from the 1800s and Hope at present day. This story was full of twists and turns with a mystery surrounding a lighthouse that both Adelia and Hope are connect to. Very intriguing.

The House that Adelia Built AUDIO BOOK by Mya O’Malley – Review by Amanda DelFemine

Adelia lives the ideal life with love and promise of a bright future with her husband. That all changed when she left to live as a lighthouse keepers wife. The loneliness can really make someone go mad. Her husbands befriends Devon and Adelia ends up falling for him. Adelia is met with Hope that is there to tell her story of love and death. I really enjoyed the twists in the book and Mya O’Malley really made you feel for the characters. I like how she was able to weave the stories into on. I cant wait to read more of what she puts out.

A wonderful puzzle!

 

I am not one that normally likes the back and forth of time periods, but this was done so well. The past with Adelia and the present with Hope had you putting together bits and pieces of their lives. O’malley did an amazing job weaving their stories together. The twists and turns will have you at the edge of your seat. If you love a good mystery this is definitely the book for you! I am on my way to the authors page now to get more of her books!!

Maggie (Maggie Trilogy Book 1) AUDIO BOOK by Mya O’Malley – Review by Charlisa Wahtomy-Alba

Naomi is a writer that lives at the edge of a cemetery that has graves dating back to the 1700s. Having recently started dating a man named Ryan, she is trying to start fresh after leaving her abusive boyfriend Nick. Even though she is happy in her relationship with Ryan she feels that the romantic part of their relationship is coming to an end. She meets a single father, Bryce, and his daughter and feels the attraction. What is she going to do? She doesn’t want to lose Ryan, but she can’t help the feelings she is developing for her neighbor. When she gets writers block she hopes that she may be able to find inspiration from a name out there in the cemetery, that’s when she comes across Maggie’s headstone. Her creative juices start flowing and words start flowing from her pen as she jots down ideas. Soon she starts to see apparitions of a woman in her home and wonders who she is and what she wants. This ghost wants her story told, but Naomi can’t quite figure out what the woman is trying to tell her. She starts to have dreams where she is seeing Maggie running being chased by someone, but she can’t quite see who it is. With her love life in tangles she decides to throw all of her efforts into finding out everything she can about Maggie’s death. It is Naomi’s goal to find out what truly happened to this young woman not only so she can get her story written, but also so the family gets the answers they have been seeking. She is also hoping that this will help Maggie get the peace that she deserves.

Just from looking at the cover of this book I thought I would be hearing about a woman that was running for her life from some sort of evil. I felt that the first couple of chapters were a little slow, but once I got past that I began to get into the story and truly enjoyed it. I thought I had this story figured out on several occasions, but then had to back track to look at it from a different angle. Everything made sense when it all came together in the end and I’m very glad I stuck with this book.

Maggie (Maggie Trilogy Book 1) AUDIO BOOK by Mya O’Malley – Review by Robin Rankin

Maggie is a book I had the pleasure of reading when it was first released and when I saw it was out on audio I knew I had to listen to it, especially since I don’t have a lot of time to read books.

It had been a while since I had read it and I had forgotten some of the twists and events that happen and I think some of the events were enhances by Ms. Ember and her narrative.  I really loved how Holly came across.

I enjoyed this as much this time as I did when I originally read it, maybe even a little more since the voice I heard wasn’t mine.
