I received The Ghosts of Halloween from the author, my friend, Ceillie Simkiss. I love Halloween and dressing up, so I figured I’d love this!

It’s #ownvoices.

I wrote this, and I'm very pleased with it!

What I Liked

Cute quick stories

This is a set of three cute, quick stories about a couple we've grown to love, beginning at Learning Curves, through their Christmas story in Wrapped Up In You.

This was everything I hoped it would be. I loved the past/present/future angles, and it was all just so cute, all of it. I loved this return to these characters I like so much!
