Publisher's Summary

James McKinney has always lived life alone. He doesn’t have a family, at least none that he remembers. He’s always dreamed of having a house of his own, a place he can call home. Finding the right house, ready to work to make it his home, nothing can put a damper on his happiness, or can it?

Trey Andral, returning home from college, notices someone moving into his old friend’s house next door. Miss Hattie is still waving to him from the bedroom window, even though he knows she’s gone. He also knows he can’t not help the new guy make the house his own.

Trey has always been able to see and hear sprits, but what’s normal to him is terrifying to most others. When the spirits seem intent on contacting James, Trey has no choice but to share his secret, risking their friendship. If they work together, maybe they can figure out what the clues the spirits are giving them mean. And maybe they can find family in each other.

loved it

I loved this book. Curtis Michael really brings this story to life and makes you fall in love with the characters even more. James McKinney has always lived by himself. He buys a house. Its a dream come true. Trey Andral comes home and while passing Miss Hattie's house. He sees her. He knows she gone and most would think he's crazy if he said he can see ghosts. Trey introduces himself and sees James needs help. How could Trey not help him. Can the Mrs. Hattie and the ghost bring Trey and James together? And more importantly show James he was never alone?

Excellent audio book

I really enjoyed this book and appreciated the narration. Curtis Michael’s voice is one I could listen to read for hours - very soothing and helps tell the story, not distract from it!

Ghostly Friends to Lovers Romance Story :)

I love all of BL Maxwell’s books but her paranormal ones are some of my favorite :) A Ghost of a Chance was so fun and wonderful to read that I was thrilled when she announced that it would be coming to audio form :) It has a slight age gap, friends to lovers, next door neighbors, haunted ghosts, and wonderful family members. She couldn’t have picked a better narrator to bring Trey and James to life. Curtis did a phenomenal job voicing Trey, James, Ms. Hattie, and Trey’s family :) He has a wonderful smooth and silky voice and does a great job bringing each character to life. If I had neighbors like Trey and his family, I would just have to live with a ghost ;) Pretty good trade-off and I'm glad James and Trey got their HEA even if it took a ghost or two to make them figure everything out.

as good as the ebook

The story is always 4-5 stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook. I can't listen to an audiobook without knowing the book, that's not possible for me.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. It took me a little bit, to come into the narrator, but at the end, it worked. I only have to take a few breaks between. I'm just not yet finish with the book, I’m over the half, but I listen enough to give a review.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:

5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening.
it's like a B

Really good!

4.5 Stars

Trey is back home and the first thing he notices is that someone new is moving into his late neighbor's home. Deciding he needs to help the guy move in, Trey introduces himself. James has finally found a place he can call home and call his own, after being alone for most of his life. The last thing he expects is for the place to be haunted. Trey can see dead people and decides to help James out, but have they bitten more than they chew?

Trey and James were very likable, sweet characters. I loved the progression of their relationship, even with their age difference, it felt very natural. The transition from strangers to friends to lovers was a smooth one and their interactions were delightful.

The ghost plotline was a bit confusing for me. At first, I wasn't sure what kind of spirit/spirits they were dealing with. I mean, they could've found a better way to communicate with James rather than scaring the hell out of him, right? LOL. Still, I enjoyed following Trey and James as they researched and discovered what the ghosts were really after.

Curtis Michael is a new-to-me narrator and I thought he did a great job with A Ghost of a Chance. He brought Trey and James to life for me and managed to ramp up the suspense when I still wasn't sure what the guys were dealing with. I swear I had chills when the unknown spirit in James's house spoke for the first time. LOL

Overall, the book was very entertaining. It was a lovely way to spend a few hours as I lost myself in James and Trey's story and their HEA. They were easy characters to root for and despite my initial confusion regarding one of the ghost's intentions, I have no trouble recommending this book/audiobook.

Brilliant and fun

I don't need to be fancy and give a monologue of why this book was fantastic but instead sum it up in 2 words, LOVED IT!❤
But for reference, this book just hit all the right notes for me and sang. I love paranormal, and I loved Trey and James and their shenanigans. It was a fun read with excitement that I whiled away a few hours listening to the story unfold. The narration just gelled so well and brought it to life in my head. A must listen👂🎵

I loved this sweet and exciting story!

James and Trey fit so wonderfully together and the meddling interference of the ghosts (which Tray can hear and see, but which actually are affecting James’ life more) make this a fun, exciting and interesting story!
I always love Curtis Michael's narration, and this was no exception.
