Spirit, Texas, is a town of secrets, and as the new owner of the local haunted movie theater, Cody Stryker is juggling more than his fair share. When a mysterious new girl comes to town and runs afoul of the ghost that lives in his theater, Cody's caught in the middle and needs to figure out exactly who he can trust. HAUNTED LOVE is a short story by New York Times Bestseller Cynthia Leitich Smith -- set in the same dark universe as her novels TANTALIZE, ETERNAL, and BLESSED. This story includes a sneak preview of Cynthia Leitich Smith's latest novel, DIABOLICAL, which unites characters from the previous three novels in the Tantalize Series along with a fascinating cast of all-new characters for a suspenseful, action-packed clash between the forces of heaven and hell.

My Take:

This is what I needed, even though I wanted more from this I knew it ended well. Its a short story about a young man trying to reopen a movie theater that he was able to purchase, its his fresh start and even though its a small town he knows his past is behind him. But when things don't add up and the new girl he hired is being threatened he either has to choose to leave the theater opened or leave it closed. 

What I loved about this was that I didn't expect Cody to be what he is and of course the rest had me awing the whole time. I am in love with this little gift of heaven and I can't wait to see and hope for more from Cynthia because when an author can write such a lovely short story her big ones always shine the brightest.

This was a total score and if you want some awe dropping moments as well than click and download the free short story and you won't be sorry you did.

5/5 stars
