THRILLS AND CHILLS FOR THE SUSPENSE LOVER!!!! HIDDEN TRUTHS & LIES BY FRAN LEWIS BK 4 FACES BEHIND THE STONES!

4.0 out of 5 stars Short and creepyReviewed in the United States on July 31, 2016I enjoy short stories and collections, especially creepy ones. And I take into account that they are just nibbles, not complete stories.

Some of these were great. They gave me the shivers and I truly thought the characters got what they deserved. And a couple had me a bit confused. Perhaps because the dead were too.

The dead speak from their graves in Golden Stone Cemetery. They have some ghastly tales to tell. Just how wicked were they to be buried and forgotten?. Would they repent if they could? Do they lust for revenge? Are their souls worth saving?

The answers lie in these pages. It takes talent to spin good tales using so little words, and this author passed my test. While the stories are short, they leave a lasting impression.

This is one that I couldn’t stop reading until I read the last word. Several of the stories had me thinking long afterwards. That’s why I’ll be reading more from this author.

To quote R.L. Stine: “Beware, you’re in for a scare!”

I received this book for my honest review.

BAD CHOICES CAN BE DEADLY Bad Choices (Faces Behind the Stones Book 2) FRAN LEWIS



C. Giguere5.0 out of 5 stars Haunting!Reviewed in the United States on June 15, 2013Verified PurchaseThe story begins with Benita the first of several narrators who share their story as to why they are one of the faces behind the stone. As the reader is escorted around the cemetery, we listen to stories of alcohol, abuse, and suicide accompanied with a warning to readers about the consequences of apathy. It was the warning herald by Sam, “Hear my voice before you too wind up a face behind stone!” that sent chills down my spine. As I read on, I encounter more and more faces and was amazed at the author’s ability to give life to these tragic figures. People, this is a ghost story like no other!

If I had to compare this book to anything already out there, I would have to compare it to the play, Our Town. However, unlike OT the story doesn’t go in depth into the mundane parts of the characters. Faces Behind Stones gets straight to the point and starts where most stories end. From beyond the grave teens share their stories with the living, stories that went unspoken until now.

I wasn’t expecting something like this from Fran Lewis her stories are usually uplifting and witty, this however, was much more dark and tragic. Using fiction, I was pleasantly surprised at how she was able to tackle the issues that plague today’s youth. With a sympathetic ear, Fran listens to her characters and gives them a stage to tell their stories. Also in the end of the book, there is an appendix that helps educators and parents understand what’s going on in the teen world. This is a must buy for those working with or living with teens.

Compelling collection of short stories from Mari Collier, author of Earthbound.

The third definition of skewed is to look obliquely. That somehow describes my mind as I may see things a bit differently than the rest of the population. To me there is always something more, perhaps something hidden or shaded by another dimension.

You’ll meet a boy who doesn’t grow old, a witch that wants to be normal, an Iowa farm woman battling frogs, a vampire that chooses to live in a sunny desert, ghosts, and vampires.

Reader Editor5.0 out of 5 stars Tales Conjured from a Mind in the OzoneReviewed in the United States on February 25, 2020Verified PurchaseThe author, Mari Collier, can produce the unexpected. I’ve read several of her books. It seems her writing mind happily inhabits the far reaches of the ozone. It’s as if she sets out to capture certain corners of reality through her writing, then imbues them with her story-telling ability. That might be science fiction or fantasy. It might be romance or mystery. It might be vampire! Whatever the case, her mind is way out there. That must be how she can write in so many genres.

Some of these stories are vignettes, flash fiction, mere snippets of a moment in time. Some stories are longer. Each led through a tale that suddenly jumped to an unexpected ending leaving me asking, “Why didn’t I see that coming?”

I’ve read a few of Ms. Collier’s books and will be reading many more. Whether in short stories or full-length novels, she is an author that leaves you trying to figure out what will happen to her story people, but it won’t be what you’d expect. Nothing ho-hum here!

SHE ROLLED THE DICE AND SHE WON –MARSHA CASPER COOK!

Virginia loves playing games with men, especially in business. While that might have been good for others, for Virginia Templeton, playing house with too many men caused her to lose focus. So when she discovered her husband, a very powerful man, made some bad decisions she decided to take matters into her own hands and when she does she finds out it wasn’t a pretty picture. He was a bag guy!

V.E.VINE VOICE4.0 out of 5 stars Sexy CollectionReviewed in the United States on October 1, 2018Verified PurchaseVirginia Templeton Stories by Marsha Casper Cook is a thrilling short collection of erotic and outrageous stories that feature the strong willed and highly sexed Virginia. Virginia is a powerful woman in her own right even though she has been married for ten years to a highly successful man. She wants more that just the trappings of wealth. These stories resonate because they touch on the secret desires for power and seduction that many women feel they must hide. A delightful romp on many levels, these stories will fulfill your every fantasy while glorifying a strong and powerful woman who is ruthless in her pursuits. The stories are well written, the characters are interesting if a little predictable and you will enjoy the energy and cavalier attitude that Virginia has on just about everything. A must read for the beach or anywhere else you want the perfect escape.
