Ms. Braum has written a compelling situational paranormal thriller that will chill your bones if you believe such phenomena. Using a couple who just met, she weaves a story with a twist I didn't see coming.
A man and a woman meet for their first date at a restaurant where, after chitchat, they encounter a strange occurrence which snowballs into the woman's psyche. What she believes infects her mind into plausibility leading to an adverse action.
The man, who has fallen in love as she, goes back to the restaurant at her bidding. He becomes overwhelmed with the situation and wants to move in another direction.
After a short separation, she convinces him to meet with her. This meeting culminates love stories one will remember if they read DEAD over HEELS.
Dead Over Heels, a short story by Theresa Braun, is a pleasant mix of a crime fiction, chick lit and paranormal thriller. I do not usually like short stories, in my experience; they spend too much time building a plot and not enough time spent on resolution. They don’t allow for character development. This story changed my opinion. Braun gave me exactly what I wanted in this story; well-developed characters, a lot of action and a creepy, concise ghost story with a shocking twist.
For such a short story, it packs a serious punch!
From the first paragraph, I was hooked by this one. Initially, we meet Veronica. She is your typical, and relatable, woman taking a crack at online dating (and failing miserably). She cancels her account, but fate intervenes and allows one last message to go through. A message from Sebastian. Veronica and Sebastian meet online and have their first date at a reportedly haunted restaurant; Veronica mentioned in her profile that she has an interest in the paranormal. They have some instant attraction but, while enjoying their meals, they experience a supernatural occurrence. Veronica is haunted by this and decides she must return to figure out what’s happening. To her shock and dismay, she realizes that she has a connection to these occurrences, as does Sebastian. Veronica and Sebastian must work together to keep their own past demons at bay.
There were twists and turns throughout the story that were completely unexpected for me. I wasn’t expecting a whole lot, especially since it is a short story, but shame on me! Braun led me on a journey will plenty of unanticipated moments. The twist at the end was a complete shock for me!
I am not sure what Braun will come up with next, but I know one thing for sure: I’ll be reading it.
I would recommend this story to someone who wants a quick dip into the genre; you will not regret it!!
I voluntarily received an e-copy of this book. Thank you to the author, Theresa Braun.
The two hit it off immediately, but whilst they are enjoying themselves Veronica notices a strange couple on the next table, not eating or drinking, and the woman looks very familiar. Sebastian asks the waiter to take them a round of drinks, but the bemused waiter tells him that no-one has been sitting there all night.
One month later, Veronica and Sebastian are back at the restaurant to celebrate their one month anniversary. Sitting at the exact table they did the first time they dined there, they are shocked when the couple from their first date suddenly appear out of thin air, and sits at the next table again.
They both realise that there is ghostly activity going on, but could the ghosts spell danger for Veronica and Sebastian?
Dead Over Heels is a quick read at only 38 pages long, but there is so much going on in the story that it feels much longer. I love how Theresa has combined a love story, with a paranormal one.
Veronica and Sebastian are very likeable characters, and it would seem that whether Veronica conjured up her soul mate, or whether fate intervened, the two were made for one another.
The ghostly happenings are a fantastic plot twist, but I won’t say anymore, or I’ll give the plot away! Let’s just say that I didn’t predict the ending, even when the book opens with a snippet of it.
Very enjoyable, and full on from beginning to end.
