My rating: 4 Stars
My opinion: I had heard Ms. DeLuca's name before as she is published by one of my favorite "creepy" publishing houses, Darkfuse Publishing. When the opportunity came for me to review one of her works I jumped at it. I was not disappointed. This will not be the last from this author.
There was a feeling to this novella that had me reminiscing about my favorite ghost writer, Clare McNally. I must admit that, although the characters were well developed, I felt the story was kind of rushed. I would have liked to have seen this longer than the about 100 pages that it was. Gotta say that this short little book had some rockin' twists woven in masterfully.
For $2.99, this book is a bargain. I would EASILY pay that cost and not even blink an eye!
