Product Description

Product Description

Hurrying to the old bridge that crossed Yellow Creek, Courtney stepped to the side as a car came up behind her. The bridge was only wide enough for one car and even foot traffic had to climb up on the narrow ledge for safety. The car slowed and the driver’s side window rolled down. A familiar face greeted Courtney.
“Hey, Courtney, how about a ride?” he asked.
She shook her head. “No, thanks, I’m good,” she said. “It’s only a few more blocks.”
The driver looked up to the sky. “You won’t make it before the storm hits,” he argued. “Come on, I’ll feel guilty all night if I leave you here.”
She smiled. “Okay, if you put it that way,” she agreed, jogging over to the passenger side of the car and letting herself in.
The door lock clicked as she buckled her seatbelt and she looked up in surprise. “It does that automatically,” the driver said with an apologetic shrug.
Courtney scooted against the door and grasped the handle. “You know, I think I’ll just walk anyway,” she said, pulling against the handle.
But the door didn’t open. She tried it again, but it was still locked tight.
“Child locks,” the driver said, a smile on his face. “You can’t get out until I let you out.”
She pressed the window button, but it also stayed in place. “Listen, I don’t want to be in this car,” she said firmly. “Now please let me out or I’m going to scream.”
He chuckled softly, leaned forward and placed his hand against her cheek, rubbing it intimately. “If you scream, no one will hear you,” he said, as he slipped his hand down to her neck. “But you can do it if you like. I always love to hear a girl’s scream.”

There are currently only a few authors that I avidly rush to buy but Terri Reid is one of them . Her books have just the right amount of suspense and horror for me but are also light and amusing.

5.0 out of 5 stars COMPELLING READ 20 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read books one through to book eleven of this series and each one has been captivating.
I have loved each and every story that has been told in each book as well as the continuing saga of the prime characters. I really felt that I knew everyone personally and could laugh and cry along as the stories unfolded.

Very well written with the right mix of humor, sadness, edge of seat scary bits and of course the love angle. Best of all no smut which sadly a lot of writers feel is necessary to include.

Will be looking out for more Terri Reid books in the future.

I thought this story wasn't as all encompassing as the others. Not enough involvement with the ghosts. Disappointed, not gripping.
