Her Mourning Portrait and Other Paranormal Oddities by John Brhel
My rating: 0 of 5 stars
I'll come out and say it - at this point, I'm not sure I like sort of traditional horror storytellers as much as I've been enjoying the output of Brhel and Sullivan.
Her Mourning Portrait is a collection of short paranormal tales, but this time with a bit of an angle toward romance and relationships. The result is a lot of short and simple, yet compellingly sophisticated stories that have a tendency to stick with you well after you're done.
Favorites included "Side by Side," which involved a widower and his dead wife's first lover in a twist-filled romp, and a geocaching tale that kept me guessing even though I was positive I knew what was going on.
My first foray into Brhel and Sullivan was the quirky Mavelry collection, and the way they've grown as writers is evident as they spread their wings here. As always, I can't wait for what comes next.
