I wish to extend my sincere thanks to Didi Oviatt and Kim Knight! I feel honoured to be one of the lucky winners of their first short story collection!
The book consists of eight short stories, each written by both authors. Author One writes Scene one, Author Two finishes the story in Scene Two. Only the authors know who wrote which scene, but the stories are seamless and well written.
This is a great collection of short stories, all of which I enjoyed, and like all anthologies, some I enjoyed more than others.
The stories are for mature readers only, something to keep in mind if you are bothered by books with sexual content or offensive language, this might not be for you. For those with an open mind, enjoy!
It was The First Time I Killed A Man.
It’s 1972 and New York’s first female serial killer Lisa Vanacilli is in the hot seat again, ten years after her conviction of murder to the first degree and innocent plea. The ruthless but sexy reporter Tiffany Low cracks Lisa for a confession… at a price. Lisa is strong, courageous and says it how it is. This story has been extended due to reader’s demand. And is only for adult readers.
I can’t say I loved this story, but that might have something to with Lisa being so hard to like. She’s just nasty! She’s crude, demanding and narcissistic. Contains sexual content and profanity.
Psychological Fiction: Every Time I Hear That Voice From The Basement.
George appears to be harmless. The local neighbourhood geek on the outside, married to Jolene. In reality, he’s a very disturbed man. His path crosses with Dana, the local check out girl. This is a psychological suspense story with a twist.
Ooooh…Creepy guy! He seems so innocent but one to definitely stay away from! What a great read! Didi and Kim did a great job building up the main character. I loved the scene with Jolene when she was getting cleaned up but I wonder if something more should have happened there?
Crime Fiction: The Entrance To The Tunnel Is His Only Way Out.
Juan is a wanted man, and an ex-gang member on the run from Atlanta to Mexico. With a hundred grand in cash stolen from his ex-boss, he meets an unlikely fate in Mexico. A fast-paced crime fiction story.
Loved this! I totally did not expect this ending! Well done!
Contemporary Romance: When His Hands Run Up My Thighs I…
Love has no time limit, age limit or use by date. Sarah now in her fifties is reunited with her long-lost love Joshua. They last had contact in 1961. In the present day, thanks to the advancement of technology their paths cross. A heart-warming and modern tale, about long distance love, that will leave you warm inside.
Loved this heart touching story of long lost love. Beautifully told.
Suspense: We Only Said Goodbye With Words, I Died A Hundred Times:
