☆Dani☆ ☆Touch My Spine Book Reviews☆
The Suspenseful Collection was made of eight short stories. The two authors who created this suspenseful book are fellow bloggers and do amazing collaborations together! What's even more awesome is these two ladies created these suspenseful short stories without any disscusion and/or preplanning, one author starts the story and the other author finishes! I loved this concept and loved how they created these page turners on the opposite sides of the Atlantic Ocean. This book has a story for whate ...more

What a brilliant writing tag team these two make in this collection of short stories where variety is definitely the spice of life.

I didn't think a collection of short stories could flow so naturally between two authors, but Didi Oviatt and Kim Knight did just that.

I rated each short story on how much I would like for it to be written as a complete novel. Here's my tally below that rounded to 4.25/5:

1. It Was The First Time I Killed A Man = 5 Stars (Think this may need more stars)
2. When He Ran His Hands Up My Thighs I... = 3.5 (I couldn't get with the lovey dovey romance)
3. The Entrance To The Tunnel Is His Only Way Out =

A wonderful collection of stories

Vastly different stories, but each one a treasure. These women know how to tell a tale, no matter what the subject. Suspense abounds. Emotions fill many of the pages. The characters are so real. I truly enjoyed every story!
An eclectic blend of suspenseful tales from several genres, this quick read contains some true gems. Unfortunately, I didn’t connect with all the stories.

It was the First Time I Killed a Man
This historical read from the 50s/60s didn’t work for me. Lisa Vanacilli sits on death row, the first woman tried and convicted of capital murder in the state of New York.
Lisa is a tough, unapologetic Brooklyn girl who speaks in the vernacular and tells the reader her horrible childhood with her pathetic pare
