If you love easy-to-read short stories, you'll enjoy Jenny Twist's Take One at Bedtime. This anthology of tales ranging from romantic to horrific is the perfect accompaniment for your bedside table.
In fact, for many of the stories, I took Dr. Twist's advice and read one (sometimes two or three on a good night) while I rested in my bed. They're the perfect length for a quick tale before you turn out the light, or during your lunch break, or when you're in a waiting room, or riding on the bus...I think you get my drift.
Most of these stories are set in England or Spain, and Ms. Twist employs her knowledge of both locales very well. The settings and personalities really come to life with her vivid language. Every story begins in a way that pulls the reader in and brings you to a conclusion you usually don't expect. Each tale is unique and paced nicely. I enjoyed them all and was sad when I reached the last page. I think you'll see what I mean when you buy your copy.
You can find Take One at Bedtime at Melange Books in e-book or print format.
