First of all- check this book cover! I love it. It's mystery lies in its ability to create illusion. I don't know if it's just me but this book plays with me- like vertigo! Not in a bad way, but it's different and you know me- I love different. The Missing Loved Ones, by TNae Wilcox is a collection of short stories that plays with your mind as well. From prankster boxes to stealthy aliens in the night, this book does the job when it comes to campfire stories!
The stories are bits and pieces, strewn together, producing a sweet collection of the macabre, mysterious and deadly. The author found a way to place some more than serious situations all in one book, keeping you page turning until the very end. And then, at the very end, is another surprise! Yes, but I'll save that for the end.
Out of the 8 stories, one was multiple chapters long, I think He's You and What About Her were the best. I have to admit though, I didn't read The Gift, because I was 'gifted' with the (review posted on 2/27/17) audiobook! He's You was about a boy who'd been in a terrible accident, resulting with him in a coma. With his parents thinking he'll not recover, they decide to clone him. YES- clone him! Well, the problem is, their real son, the first son, recovers 100%, leaving them with two of the same child Uh-oh...
What About Her was pretty good too, about aliens. A girl in a home ruled by a stank-acting mother, is given the responsibility of caring for her grandfather. The man's a mess, but he's not as inept as all would believe. When a strange visitor comes calling, the girl may only survive because of the old man who never speaks.
All of these stories were fun to read. I was only confused by one: Prankster In The Box, but I still enjoyed. If you're looking for spooky but more like Tales From the Darkside, so you won't be terrified or grossed out, this book is for you. Check it out, directly from the author herself or anywhere books are sold. I'm off to the next read!
