 MY THOUGHTS
Go on a journey to the dark side of fiction with ten short stories. This is Ms. Lawrence's fourth book.   There are also illustrations by Kira Sokolovskia. Who knows what goes on with the nice little lady down the street, or the husband, seemingly in love with his wife and so much more.   There is much more to everyone and everything than appears outright.
This is a short story collection of horror stories but I didn't really find them scary but rather humorous and rather funny. There were times when I'd turn the page and there it was, the scary part.  This was a great way for the author to keep your attention.  Just the time you're smiling, the smile fades a  little. I'd stop and think, oh no, this could happen, really happen.
I found myself liking the short story, The Perfect Crime.  A husband, Claude had planned on killing his wife for years.  He planned it second by second and then the time came...  I thought I had it all figured out but I was surprised at the very end.  It wasn't what I had expected. The stories are such as  the title, a cat with nine lives.  Did you ever stop to think about a cat?  They are a little scary at times.  Think about it. Not only nine lives but they sense things sometimes before they occur. The author wove a fine web of the dark side of everyday life, our dreams, our friends and relatives, our animals and much more. Step into the dark side and see if you're afraid to turn the page. (Take a look at the cat on the cover, a little eerie.

I received a complimentary PDF copy of this book from the author and PUYB and voluntarily decided to review it.
I  would give this book 5 STARS.
