Dead Souls was twisted, an addictive tale that will have you avoiding strangers. The author has a flair for unfolding a story and pulls the reader in from the very first page. Add the smooth narrations of Julia Whelan, and you are in for one heck of a ride. So the devil walks into a bar sit down next to you and says…..
Marvelry’s Curiosity Shop by John Brhel and Joseph Sullivan is a collection of twelve short stories surrounding Marvelry’s Curiosity Shop and the odd and sometimes cursed artifacts sold in the shop. Perfect shorts for the witching seasoning these tales reminded me of the stories told around the campfire. I loved the unique store and strange sometimes spooky stories.
I read most of the collection in Skeleton Crew previously but could not resist listening especially with a cast of narrators that include some of my favorites like Will Patton, David Morse and Robert Petkoff.
I love anthologies particularly ones surrounding a holiday theme. The Cottage on Pumpkin and Vine by Kate Angell, Jennifer Dawson and Sharla Lovelace takes place in Moonbright, Maine at a picturesque B&B. Three romances surrounded by apple bobbing, crisp autumn air and a little magic make it a must read.
