Ms. Gilman penned a great story for her readers to enjoy. I was immediately pulled into the storyline and found myself eagerly turning the pages so I could find out what happened next. Her characters were fun to get to know and I found myself really caring about what ultimately happened to Jade and Dutch. The dialogue was smooth flowing and added to the overall enjoyment of the story. She penned such an entertaining story that it felt totally believable to me – as if I was there watching it all unfold before me. If you love ghost stories and are looking for a short story to fit into your busy schedule, you definitely should look into this one. I highly recommend it!
