“As soon as you put that huge diamond ring on my finger in the church, things changed forever. After being your darling from high school and up until our wedding the compliments suddenly ended. Instead of darling you now called me your bitch, your …”

My Opinion

Alicia Day married her high school sweetheart – bad choice.

With Alicia Day, Marcia Carrington has created an intriguing short psychological thriller. It is a story that can be perfect in only two possible lengths: as short as this one – or with at least 500 pages. Marcia Carrington portrays young widow Alicia Day, carefully revealing what has happened in the past. The story is nicely elaborated and has a really good flow; it leaves sufficient room for your imagination. I highly enjoyed reading this story, did not miss further explanations.

This is a book for you if you like short stories with a psychological thrill.
