My thanks to Rachel for my spot on the tour and also Ann for my e-copy of the collection. You can get a copy from Amazon or see have a look at it on Goodreads
Four twisty, short reads.
Addictive works of suspense,
That will leave you breathless and give you goose bumps…
Trading with Death
What sacrifice might we make for those we love? In the face of death, will we be selfish or selfless?
Tell Me a Secret
Deceit, lies and secrets – how well do we know those close to us?
We follow Tess as she confronts the dark side…
Written on the Apple Tree
A moment from a past life, a possession, or a simple meeting between strangers?
This is another new to me author and based on these short stories I will definitely be looking to read read more by her.
So this is a collection of four stories and each one has an element of the unexpected, or it has a twist. They bring a range of interesting concepts that I really enjoyed and yes I did like the unexpected kick at the end of each one. Given their short nature I found them to be compelling and well thought out with a feeling of completeness to them.
I always feel that I am being to vague when reviewing short stories as the review tends to also be on the short side and I never want to give any spoilers away. So what I found within the stories was that they had a slightly sinister element or maybe better described as an element of thrill, and left me with an “ooooohhh” at the end of each one.
They cover a range of themes and each one has been well developed and even though they are short I felt they had a good amount of depth. It would be hard to pick a favourite as they are so different to each other.
I would definitely recommend these to readers who like short stories with an unexpected twist and thrill to them.
