Short Story Review: "Second Chance Rose" by John McCaffrey
Sally is 35 years old and has decided life's not worth living. She sits on top of a cold Chicago apartment buildings roof trying to gain the courage to throw herself off. A ghost from her past appears, and shows her not everything is as it seems. As the cold wind sighs, the apparition talks to her of the past, and of a supernatural alternative.
* I was given a free copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.*
This short story reminded me of episodes of "The Twilight Zone." It had an unexpected twist at the end that I didn't see coming, which I love when reading short stories/novellas. Right from the beginning the author grabs your attention. His descriptions of the scenes make you feel like you are there, on that rooftop with Sally. The storyline was easy to follow, word building was good and it flowed nicely. It only took me about 15 minutes to read and I would recommend it to someone who is looking for a psychological thriller type read.
