Although this is an anthology this review is purely for “When Emily was Here” by Kathy-Lynn Cross
I have read stories from Kathy-Lynn Cross before and all I can say is her mind must be a dark and twisty place for sure. This story is definitely on the really dark edge of things and although I will confess to working out some parts of the plot some of it had me guessing right up to the very last page.
Followers of my reviews will know that I love my fiction on the dark side and this definitely fist that bill. If the rest of the anthology is even half as good then you won’t be disappointed
Personally I would grab the anthology for this story alone!
5 Stars From me
