A good short story should leave a reader who is also a writer breathless to create their own next piece of short fiction, and this story did exactly that for me! It’s not really my style – mixing in blatant elements of the supernatural – but I totally didn’t suspect a thing or see the ending coming, which always makes me a fan. The writing is enjoyable, the story well crafted – needless to say, Paula Cappa has a new fan and I’d like to read more of her work.
As an added bonus, this short story is FREE on Kindle. As a double added bonus, another short story – Abasteron House – is included in the free download. I didn’t like the second story as much, but it was again well written and masterfully crafted. 4.5 stars!
