Adams and Eve

A Liberty Heights Halloween Short Story

Elle Druskin does Halloween with Liberty Height’s flair in this short, sweet and slightly spooky story. A return visit just in time for the holiday is a fabulously fun trick and a wonderful treat for fans of this quirky town and its off-beat inhabitants. Catching up with many of the residents and seeing just how life has been treating those who have settled down and scoping out those attachments yet to be made is a pleasant way to pass the time. I also enjoyed chuckling out-loud at LouAnn’s naiveté and her conversations with Wayne the psychic dog. The overall amusement made this a real feel-good story and the ending left me anticipating the next exploits. If you aren’t a fan this fun short will introduce you to the crowd and it won’t be long before you’ll be making regular visits to one of my favorite destinations. It might be easier to follow along if you have read a previous adventure but it is still a cute holiday romp that will make readers smile.

Leave it to Liberty Height’s most idiosyncratic resident to throw a Halloween party and request that everyone dress as their favorite Adams. So while the inhabitants are preoccupied with who they will come as an uninvited guests stalks the unwitting hostess. Will the party be a success or will someone end up in the graveyard next door?

Who’s trying to kill LouAnn? Why? How do the folks in Liberty Heights prevent a murder? Celebrate Halloween—Liberty Heights style.
