Crawford writes amazing short stories. In this collection they have a surreal, dream-like quality because of the beautiful writing and masterful weaving of words. I liked how the three stories all tied into one setting, The Boathouse.

The author has a crisp, clean, no-nonsense writing style. She delves deep into the heart, mind and soul of her characters. The reader is sucked into the stories, living each moment and experiencing each event alongside the characters.
Great suspense!

This collection of three stories is well written and well edited. The author captures the essence of depression in the first and offers a surprising twist with the second. The third ties them together. Her descriptions make you feel like you're there with the characters.

An action-packed genre novel, this is not; but it is a quality work and a worthy read. 4 1/2 stars.

I have enjoyed all of Crawford's works but this one is my favorite by far. The stories are all engaging and interesting on their own, but I wondered how they were all going to come together as I read. When it became clear in the end I felt a chill go up my spine at the same time the light bulb went off in my head. These are dark stories that manage to touching and heartbreaking at the same time. Crawford is an brilliantly talented writer and I look forward to reading whatever she comes up with next.

All three stories are written perfectly and packed with detail that is just amazing. Each ending was surprising to me and it made it all that better.

First is about Ella and the nightmares she had as a young girl. You would think it was a monster dream...but was it? Then what's with the aliens when she gets into teen years? There must be something hidden within these dreams, but just what could this all mean exactly? Later in her life Will comes along and her dreams continue to go on. The last few words of this story was a surprise and yet it was just perfect.

So lets talk about Sally and her boyfriends. Well it starts strong and she is with Murray and well they should have better timing, because now Sally has to scramble to look good and get to work. Sally works at a fast food place and thats about it. She dropped out of school and made some wrong turns in the road, but right now she is working and hopes to move closer to the water some day. Then there is Steve. Then there was Andrew who she was supposed to marry. Well Sally doesn't have the greatest luck in the world when guys are concerned. They all tend to die and Sally moves on. Murray was mentioned the most and she could have had a life with him and be happy together, but I guess things never go perfectly for Sally. Now she grabs her bag and goes on in her life.

Now for Rona. Rona also left school and is off doing her thing. New job and place and has an ability. Dreams and ghosts is what Rona deals with. Its nothing new really, she would be moving furniture and turning on lights when she was a kid. Yup, totally normal things going on around here. Souls and stories will come to her and its actually written really well and I couldn't get enough of Rona's story.
