⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 out of 5 stars

What a delightful cozy mystery with a hint of the paranormal! Following a personal / family tragedy Sara leaves the hustle & bustle of big city life behind and rents a cabin the the quiet Cascade village of Dunnhill. With a handsome landlord, a cozy wilderness cabin, and the promise of peace it’s the exact recipe for healing she’s been looking for. But when a grizzly bear makes an appearance in her backyard, things start to take an ominous turn. Plagued by dreams, the likes of which she’s never experienced before, Sara finds herself compelled to try to solve the mystery. 

This little story (38 pages) is a wonderful example of the short story medium used to full effect. Sara’s character and her motivations are revealed succinctly with the mystery doled out at a perfect pace. The ending is satisfying while leaving readers eager to learn if Sara will return to Dunnhill and the possibly budding relationship with her handsome landlord David. Well done!

Like so many books I read & review, this little gem is free to read via Kindle Unlimited HERE.

Stay tuned for my review of its follow-up story, The Charm of Lost Chances.
