Publisher's Summary

Winter winds off the Atlantic have turned the tourist mecca of Seaside Creek, New Jersey, into a ghost town. Dr. Christina Paxton, however, is growing accustomed to living with ghosts. Recently widowed, the emergency room physician has returned to the shore with her young daughter, house-sitting a sprawling beachside Victorian home. One night, her two-year-old calls her by a name that makes Christina's blood run cold and sends her thoughts spiraling back 30 years.

Deeply unnerved, and certain someone else is in the house, she flees with her child into the cold night, only to come face-to-face with Chief Harris Bowers, a former classmate with whom Christina has a complicated history. Now divorced, Harris hopes to mend their past, but Christina is wary of being played for a fool again. As threats emerge, Christina and her small family find themselves in grave danger. It seems there is no one she can put her trust in - least of all herself.

    "Creepy and Fun, Romantic and Suspenseful"
    If you could sum up The Off Season in three words, what would they be?

    Creepy, Suspenseful, Romantic


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Off Season?

    There were several memorable moments of The Off Season that I won't soon forget. The best moments were when Christina's daughter appeared to be channeling Christina's birth mother, by speaking words about things that only Christina knows...why does the little girl seem to change from charming to creepy?


    What does Hillary Huber bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Ms. Huber was a good narrator, and brought each character to life. Her narration of child voices was particularly good- not sappy and whiny, but realistic and easy to imagine being the voices of typical kids- especially hair-raising, too.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The book made my heart pound and my body tense up- this is one of the creepiest stories I've ever read/listened to, and my reactions surprised me- don't listen in the dark! You'll be shocked by the escapades of the evildoers in the story!


    Any additional comments?

    Great story with solid narration. The story kept me engaged and absorbed, and the characters were interesting and often quite eerie. Throw in the romance when Christina finds that her old flame is the police chief in her hometown who becomes involved in her case, and an unexpected twist, and you've got yourself a good listen.
