What did you love best about The Nurse?

Well written, with humour and compassion. I work in the field, in a downtown hospital (across from the one in the book) and can strongly relate to this novel. Another thriller from a great author!!!

Even though I knew to expect chilling stories, I was pleasantly surprised at how well these were told. I did get chills at the end of each of these short tales that were strange indeed. I'll be looking for more books by this author for those nights when I want a thrill and maybe a little scare. Recommend!

This book is great for anyone who's a fan of the imaginative storytelling you may remember as a child but with more of an adult spin to it. I would highly recommend this to teens and adults for a little relaxing story time with a slightly darker twist!
