I’ve had a ton of mushy, albeit sexy stuff on here lately. It’s time for a good dose of horror in the form of Theresa Braun’s new novella, Dead Over Heels.
In the last few months Theresa has contributed a ton of good stuff to Reads & Reels. Most recently, her review of Doctor Strange. So it is really nice to be able to review some new material from this talented horror writer. Theresa dishes out goosebumps with her ghost story, Dead Over Heels.
Dead Over Heels
Veronica’s first date with Sebastian not only stirs up a powerful attraction, but also a series of supernatural events that will tear them apart.
After countless hours of dead-end online dating, Veronica meets up with Sebastian at a reportedly haunted restaurant, since he knows she has a fascination with the paranormal. While enjoying their meals and each other’s company, they share a shocking supernatural experience. Their romantic connection is overshadowed by the ghosts of their own pasts that threaten to destroy their budding relationship. Veronica decides she must return to the restaurant to face her past and dig up more answers. Unfortunately, she realizes she must go back, this time with a reluctant Sebastian. In the end, they join forces against the evil that stands between them, but will they make it out alive?
Dead Over Heels is a fun read with a fabulous twist at the end. As if the dating world isn’t scary enough as it is, now singletons will have to contend with potential dates being haunted by ghosts.
Theresa seems to like to write traditional ghost stories which I really enjoy. There is nothing more frightening than the unknown and that makes for a great story. I don’t want to give anything away so I will leave you with this–Excellent writing, good storyline and a great ending!
About the Author
Theresa Braun was born in St. Paul, Minnesota and has carried some of that hardiness with her to South Florida where she currently resides with her two fur babies, who are her creative sidekicks. She enjoys delving into creative writing, painting, photography and even bouts of ghost hunting. Perhaps growing up in a haunted house in Winona, Minnesota is to blame. If it’s haunted, it’s on her “to visit” list. Traveling is one of her passions—in fact, her latest adventure took her to Romania for a horror writers’ workshop where she followed in the steps of Vlad the Impaler.
She writes horror fiction and the occasional romance—they definitely have things in common, right? She also likes to guest blog about writing, television shows, movies, and books, mostly in the horror genre. Her short story Shout At The Devil appears in Under the Bed Magazine and “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” in Hindered Souls .
