Good short paranormal story

I would classify this as a paranormal story. It was good. I wish it was a little longer to develop the story and characters more.

Fun Premise

For a short story I feel like it had a lot of good ideas but there just wasn’t enough character development for me to relate to the characters through the story. It also felt a little too easy in some places we’re all of the characters just happen to meet under the perfect circumstances and then magically figured out the puzzles to the mystery of the curse without much trying. I’d love to read this again when it has some more development to it I feel like it is a very good start to a series :-)

I was given this novel for free in exchange for an unbiased review.

Wow

I love short stories like that and what makes it better is it spans many generations.
Great story line. Only thing I thought the curse had to be broken by the twin! Since that isn’t what happened can we expect a second book?
I received this free for an honest review from the author or narrator.

A good read for those loving the genre.

This isn’t my normal genre but knowing the quality of the author’s work I was intrigued to read The Curse. As is usual with her work the book is well written, structured and polished.
The curse has been with the family for years, passing down through generations. I won’t spoil the ending but I enjoyed it.
The cover is eye-catching and perfect for the tale, and overall, the narrator did a good job.
