Reviewer: Rachel Annie
A really enjoyable collection of short stories from a first-time author*–Ms. Blair has a skill for poetic imagery and a knack for making me want to find out more about side characters.
Once in a Blue Moon, Shades of Winter, The Fourth of Never, The Game, Skinwalker, 27, and Alabama Getaway were all solid shorts. But they were, to borrow a phrase from one of the stories, “Just a nibble.” Just brief glimpses into the lives of the characters, and also the most “horror” of the offerings. Loved the concept of 27, and would like to see more from the girl with the black-framed glasses in Alabama Getaway.
The two that bookended this collection, On Edge and Max in the NYC had the most paranormal romance vibe to them, and were my favorites by far. Put these two stories together, add a bit more to the word count, and you’ve got an awesome PNR novella in your hands.
PS NEED MOAR MAX! Lol, I’ll be patient. 😉

About this author
Heather R. Blair wrote her first book in the first grade and hasn’t stopped since. Back then it all about horses, now it’s pretty much the dark, sexy and shivery.
She lives in the frozen north of Minnesota, near that big gorgeous lake called Superior and enjoys hiking when the snow melts. She also does murals, rides herd on four monsters (otherwise known as children, ages 7-17), is slightly obsessed with Martin Freeman, British television and things that go bump in the night.
She loves reading (duh!) and interacting with other bibliophiles and authors.
