Can Catherine help him get his life back on track?Something Spooky This Way Comes is a very short anthology. It is comprised of several short stories that mostly have a Halloween theme. Most have a touch of romance, but there are a couple that do not.The best of the collection is A Piece of Her Soul. In nine short pages, Ms. Scott was able to make me care about Jacqueline and her dilemma of wanting to get away from people whose souls were always calling to her to fix them. Matt, her next-door neighbor, came across as being a really great guy - inside and out. Of course, I have to wonder if Sam, Jacqueline's cat, had a hand in how things played out... certainly, he was a great supporting character.The stories in Something Spooky This Way Comes are short enough that the anthology makes for good light reading - it's perfect if you want something you can pick up and put down. There really isn't a lot of character development going on - there just isn't time in the short span of the individual pieces. ost of the stories are entertaining, if brief, but there are a couple of stand-outs. I'm a fan of short fiction, but I just didn't feel like I could sink my teeth into most of these stories. Still, it's a great way to try out new authors and works best as a sampler. Taken in that context, Something Spooky is a great little diversion.Originally reviewed for TheRomanceReviews.com
Reviewed By: Steph O.Reveiw Copy Provided By: Publisher Lighthearted and Fun! Beautifully written short stories that give you a glimpse at what you get from each author in a full length book. A few of the authors (Keri Ford, Tonya Kappes) I have read previously, and it was refreshing to see that they still keep that something special whether writing a short story or something longer. The others were new for me, and they didn’t disappoint. If I had to pick a favorite from the authors that are new for me, I would have to pick . . . Ok it’s a tie, I really enjoyed Dracula’s Bath by J.W. Keleher and The Dragon Keeper by Janet Eaves. However, because these are shorts I hate to say much about them, I would so hate to give the story away.If you are looking for something “spooky” as in “scary” this isn’t the book for you. This book is “spooky” in the sense it makes you think, Hmmm, that was strange. Not the, O.M.Goodness – I just wet my pants – did that really just happen, kinda book.Great book to have on hand with Halloween approaching. Should you find yourself with a few extra minutes here or there, open it up and read a story. Help to set the mood!
Hunter's ReviewThis is a really fun anthology written by the Turquoise Morning Press authors for Halloween. Some of the stories are romantic, some are funny, and some are downright creepy. I think they did a great job of really giving the reader a variety of stories to read that showed off the authors’ talents. I might have liked it if some of them were a little bit longer because I loved them and I would have liked more from each of the characters. (Trick for a Treat, for example. I think the author could do a whole book on these characters alone.) In fact, I can’t think of one story I didn’t enjoy in this collection.Bravo to the Turquoise Morning Press authors.5 Tea Cups!
A cute little book of various Halloween stories. Really super short stories. Some are better than others. The best part of the book was the teaser of "Paramour" by a new hot up and coming author MK Ethridge. That story sounds really awesome.
