Someone killed her sister. Or was it…something?
Addilyn Stratten doesn't know how, or who, murdered her sister until she starts digging into the history of the house her sister was murdered in. The more she digs into the house, the more she senses the need to flee as far as she can get.
Detective Eddie Kline is there every step of the way, providing the common sense that a person killed her sister, not the house.
But as each minute ticks by, Addy fears the house is at the root of it all. Each time she hears those horrifying words, she wants to run away. Who keeps whispering, Follow Me, Sweet Darling?
A random find for sure and it fits the season, so why not?
There is something wrong with this house. Not very long after Addy's sister buys this house she is murdered. Addy starts digging into the history of the house and she finds there is something sinister. Detective Eddie Kline is the "common sense" that is helping Addy. Things happen and now what is Addy to do?
Oh boy. This was a fun one. I had no idea what to expect. Whenever I had an idea, I was wrong. The ending especially got me. I didn't see that twist at the end there!
I have a love-hate with the ending...it was a good twist...but...it left like a cliff-hanger. I wanted more of a resolution. What happens next? Frustrating.
I liked Addy, but I didn't like the mom. She was...something special.
In the end, this was pretty good for a short story. The ending had a good twist, but I wanted more of an explanation or more of a conclusion. I'll give this 3 stars.
