A New Author ! Marla Meyers writes a scary, rather twisted story!

            By Marla Meyers


"This story is scary sauce with a side order of quirky. Pure Entertainment." ~ Lighthouse Reviews Stella has an injured hip, but she's hardly ready for a retirement home. At seventy-two, she's enjoying life on her own for the first time. But when Stella's daughter--Jennifer--begins to question Stella's mental state, Stella must hide the happenings in her own house, or face being sent to a home for the elderly. Jennifer sees Stella's mind slipping away. There's no other explanation for her mother's behavior, claiming to hear mysterious voices, carelessly destroying household items, and believing that someone has threatened to cut off her fingers. Can Stella cohabitate with the original ghostly owner of the house and keep her home? Or is her daughter correct, that Stella is losing her mind? As a lonely widow finds comfort in a new friend, danger is brewing. And not just for Stella. Her granddaughter becomes entangled in the web of deception, putting all of Stella's family in harm's way.

My Thoughts:

The title of this short story was perfect for this somewhat classic ghost tale!! However, it soon becomes not such an ordinary story. It becomes really twisted... in the plot as well as the characters!!

The likeable, well described characters had me engrossed in this scary tale. I felt the sudden chills as unexpected events occur!! Unusual,weird!!  A ghost story  doesn't usually appeal to me , but I must admit , this one had me hooked! The characters started out as quite realistic, however, became a bit strange, just like the title of this creation. Romance with a ghost??? Different but interesting!

Readers will have to watch for this author! A good clean read that is VERY different from the norm.

This book was a gift. The opinions and thoughts expressed are honest and my own.
