“The Tin Rose” by Anne Renwick

“The Tin Rose” by Anne Renwick

An Elemental Web Tale Book 1

This is what I call a short and oh so sweet story. I just adore the world that Anne Renwick has created in this series and this story is no exception. In this one Lady Emily and Luca and racing to find a cure for a deadly poison. Readers were first introduced to these characters in “The Golden Spider” and they continue to delight. This story has romance and action, good and evil all in about 50 pages. Oh, and don’t forget all the cool steampunk contraptions. Short story perfection with this one!

“Rusted Halo” by Jade Alyse

“Rusted Halo” by Jade Alyse

I found this short story to be very intriguing. Sully is a young man who is mute and he lives with his father, the gardener, on an estate. The owner of the estate has two daughters, Selah and Isobel. One is beautiful and the obviously favored child, while the other is just ordinary. Sully is devoted to, and fancies himself in love with, Isobel and she is about to get married. What happens next you will have to read to find out.

I found the relationships in this story especially compelling. In a short space, the author has created a great deal of complexity among the main characters. I was also surprised by the ending which I think the author kept expertly hidden until the final page. If you’re in the mood for something short, I highly recommend this story. Also, this one is available for free right now on Kindle – see the link below.

“Where There’s Smoke” by Jodi Picoult

“Where There’s Smoke” by Jodi Picoult

This is a wonderful short story where we are introduced the Serenity Jones, a celebrity psychic. In the story Serenity is doing a reading for a grieving widow whose husband died in Iraq. Afterwards, Serenity finds herself haunted by a poltergeist of the husband who is expressing his anger by setting things on fire; a kitchen table, curtains and even her front hedges.

The ending left me hanging a little bit, but Serenity shows up again in the novel “Leaving Time” so perhaps I’ll learn more of her story there. This one is short and sweet, check it out!

Happy Reading!
