A Review of "Take One at Bedtime" by Jenny Twist

This past week, I've had the pleasure of reading Jenny Twist's Take One at Bedtime, an anthology of short tales ranging from romantic to horrific. You might remember my interview with Jenny HERE before the book was released. Luckily, it's available now, and I'd recommend it for anyone who loves easy-to-read short stories.

In fact, for many of the stories, I took Dr. Twist's advice and read one (sometimes two or three on a good night) while I rested in my bed. They're the perfect length for a quick tale before you turn out the light, or during your lunch break, or when you're in a waiting room, or riding on the bus...I think you get my drift.

Most of these stories are set in England or Spain, and Ms. Twist employs her knowledge of both locales very well. The settings and personalities  really come to life with her vivid language. Every story begins in a way that pulls the reader in and brings you to a conclusion you usually don't expect. Each tale is unique and paced nicely. I enjoyed them all and was sad when I reached the last page. I think you'll see what I mean when you buy your copy.
