Disclaimer: These reviews pertain to stories in the anthology – Paranormal Anthology with a TWIST. I have a story in this book (Bloodlines – I won’t be reviewing my story ;), so many feel that I cannot objectively review other stories in the same book I am also featured in… that being said, to each their own, I know my own level of integrity. Thus, people can choose to believe me or not. I want to review them and give my opinion… so I am.
Synopsis: Young Lenora is a dutiful daughter who abides by her mother’s wishes, despite the fact that she is becoming a woman and struggles to fly free in a position obsessed 1930s town. But Sweet, Sweet Lenora is about to learn that freedom has it’s dangers.
Review: I was thoroughly impressed with Bart Hopkins grasp of protocol and position in this story. Although, I felt that this was taking place a few years earlier (turn of the century) as opposed to the 1930s. However, this did not take away from the story. Once again, the author’s style has an easily readable flow and his description is felt. When Lenora is excited, I felt it, when she is disappointed, I felt it. I thought the TWIST was going one way, then it took a turn. Ultimately, I did have an idea where it was going, but that’s me and I’m a little bit of a TWIST detective. I very much enjoyed this story and it was beautifully executed.
