A shot with hidden depths…exposing a crime writer who finds his own downfall written by a mysterious hand…right before his eyes.
‘If The Shoe Fits…’
A shot that packs a punch…a lady with a set of killer heels and anything but fairy tales in mind.
YOU MUST STAY INSIDE
by Guest Author Laura Cation
‘Going Outside was Joel’s Only Hope’
A shot that may feel familiar…when you discover a boy whose only choice is to disobey the very instructions to keep him safe.
THE THIRD DOOR
‘What Lies Inside?’
And…a final nightcap. A shot that keeps you guessing…a house with a mysterious door where one lady sees herself…over and over again.

What was it all about
This was an anthology of 4 suspenseful stories, 3 of which was written by author Charlotte Valentine, and one by Laura Cation.
Darkness pervaded into the stories as none of them was for the fainthearted.
How it made me feel
The one that caught my eye and wicked heart was Ghostwriter. Brilliantly captured with the strokes of the author’s pen, I loved how Charlotte made me want to laugh with evil laughter. Comeuppance had never thus far been written so well; it was everything my vengeant heart wanted.
Smooth writing, thinking outside the box, leaving the already-done up suspense formula far behind, the stories had something more hiding within the lines, teasing me with a pervasive need to read the book at one go.
Being 77 pages, I could finish it in an hour. So that added one book toward my Goodreads reading goal.
For me, Ghostwriter and The Third Door were interesting. The rest two could be polished to make it as exciting. Nonetheless, they made an interesting read.
I loved the book for the first story. So I would say it was time spent well.
Publication Date: 2020
I downloaded the digital version of the book from an online retail, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.
If you’ve loved the review, buy me a cuppa to perk me up.
Well written review

Nice review Shalini. I find in an anthology, I don’t usually like them all equally.
