In the right circumstances, everyone is capable of murder.
So proved our very talented blogger and author Ms. Felicia Reevers with her 4 different short stories. Each one made me cackle with delight at the right dash of evil it was tinged with. Malice seeped into the pages of the first story where the identity theft of her aunt saw the niece seeing red.
I love it when a story could say so much more with a few lines. Each character brought something tangy to the story. The women were badasses, and I loved the way they fought back their circumstances. The Marshall sisters had my heart pumping malice at the betrayal they saw.
At 60 pages, the book was short enough to read in half hour where stupidity of the criminals made me smirk. And malice was executed with the right amount of force even when prewarned. Some rookie criminals made it so easy in the second story.
The human psyche and its odds were dealt with a sweet fragrance of malice by the author. I had to admire the forbearance of the wvharcyers character whose brain had to pose the situation.
With each story, the author made the shorts so much fun. They were all different and empowering…to kill… The author sure had a wicked mind filled with malicious thoughts to drum up these stories.
Malice with tea and biscuits. Great combination.
I downloaded the digital version of the book from Kindle Unlimited, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.
