I read this short story via book shout and loved it which why I gave it 5 stars.
it is a story of a young woman who’s lost her job & split with her boyfriend who’s betrayed her by sleeping with her ex best friend, so has returned to the family holiday home to live with her mother.
I found it to be a page turner which I finished in about an hour and a half thanks to the authors fantastic writing, character and plot development.
The main character meets the love interest when she’s walking her mothers dog in the local park after his grandmothers dog attacks it. She isn’t looking for another relationship because she’s still not over her ex but she can’t help starting to have feelings for him when she sees how gentle and caring not to say drop dead gorgeous he is.
The developing love story is nearly halted when she thinks he is a killer as a result of going in to one of the bedrooms and finding a dead body in the bed with medical instruments next to it, when she goes to pick him up for their date, but he manages to put her mind at rest.
