    Nice short story, needs editing

    The story was better than most freebies, but there were typos and grammatical errors (offer instead of officer, possessive missing an apostrophe). The writer needs to find a good close reader with editing skills. Still, the story and characters were well done.

    Cute, tragic-ish story

    Although it tells of a pretty horrendous crime, it's a nice little tale of closure for two "lost" people.

    WOW!

    A tear jerker with a "wow" ending. Clever use of foreshadowing. I would read further works of this writer and recommend her. Excellent book club material.

    A very quick read

    If you're looking for something to read in under 15 minutes, this will fit the bill. It's not very long, is exceedingly predictable, but surprisingly sweet.
