The voices of the past are alive behind the iron gates of Bremore Asylum. Can Rachel and Matt deduce its secrets before it’s too late?

When Rachel agrees to take the job investigating the disappearance of a fellow ghost hunter at Bremore Asylum, she is totally unprepared for the sexy and stubborn psychic debunker Matt Rutledge to be a part of the package. Can these two opposing forces find the answers behind the asylum’s crumbling walls before they become the newest victims to the asylum’s grim history?

Review: This is the most detailed short story I have ever read. It immediately drew me in as the mystery kept playing out.  I really did not expect Rachel’s journey to be so suspenseful and realistic.

It felt like I was right there with the characters as the plot played out. The action started very quickly and kept me intrigued throughout the entire story.  I like that the author did not make it completely obvious who was behind everything. I also like that despite one murder being the main focal point, another thrilling adventure took place during the investigation.

The only complaint I have is that there was a bit too much romance. I did not expect much, if any, from the blurb.

For a short story, Asylum was filled with detail, mystery and suspense. The events held my interest throughout the entire story. It was a very enjoyable read.

Favorite Quote: “He’s really going to do it.” Matt’s eyes took in the scene in front of him and drew his lips back in horror. “He’s going to give her a lobotomy right here.”

    Dana, I usually don’t enjoy short stories because they lack detail but you did an amazing job! I can’t wait to read more.
