A Dark And Twisted Heart - Early Book Review

A Dark And Twisted Heart
by Merrie Destefano

What is it about:
Katrina is so beautiful, she's almost perfect. She only has two flaws. She's possessive.

And she's dead.

William adores Katrina, but he almost forgets about her when he meets Adelle, with her gentle smile and winsome ways.
So what's he to do? He certainly can't be faithful to a dead girl.
Even though he loves her, so much so he visits her grave every day.
Even though she haunts him and constantly reminds him of the terrible thing he did.

Even though she might just drive him to do something terrible again. Very soon.

What did I think of it:
This is a really cool spooky read.

William is haunted by Katrina even while he's courting her best friend. What happened to make Katrina haunt him, and what will happen next?

I loved the mood Destefano creates in this short story. It drew me in and painted a vivid picture even though the world building is practically non-existent. It shines through in certain words and remarks though. Destefano's writing lends itself perfectly for this sort of story: atmospheric and disturbing.

A perfect read for Halloween.

Why should you read it:
It's a nice, spooky short story.
