This story is by my beautiful, wonderful wife, a Goodness On The Face Of The Earth™ whom I love more than anything. So some may disregard whatever I say about it because of that fact.
Oh, well. Their loss.
This story is about what happens when you let sleeping secrets lie: They come lunging from the dark to grab you by the throat!
It starts on the windward side, charges through sibling rivalry, kidnapping, assault and battery, Honolulu rush hour traffic (the most horrifying beast in the world), near death on the freeway, then ends in a car crash. All the characters feel like real people. One even channels some of my late mother-in-law’s favorite phrases. Which I think is a delightful touch – my MIL was the absolute antithesis of the stereotye!
So go buy the Dark Paradise anthology, read Shauna’s story, and take another step toward making your life GLORIOUS!
