As most always, my review will be brief with no spoilers (I personally hate spoilers—reading or writing them—and try to avoid them like the plague. When I want info, I’ll read a book’s summary, which is enough for me; unless, say, it’s a book about reviews, which is different). Anyway, for part of my Halloween reading list, I gave Kat Heckenbach’s Ordinary Folk a shot and found it quite intriguing. She managed to put a new, unique twist on a classic horror character. Packed within this little yarn, one will find a good dose of mystery, suspense, and spooky delight…and that’s all I’m going to reveal. Alexa Williams did a nice job on the cover too. One final thing: this book deserves a five-star rating, but I couldn’t give it one due to a couple of instances of mild-to-mediocre profanity. Some probably won’t mind the colorful language, I’m sure, and that’s fine, everyone is different.
