#Bookreview for Betwixt a #shortstory by Evie Gaughan @evgaughan


As some of you may know I am writing at the moment and am finding it impossible to read much. I have therefore turned to the short story which, done well, is a perfect little escape for me without too much investment of time or thought. Here is one that I picked up for free recently.

Betwixt is a half hour read and the author writes a convincing setting and well-rounded characters from the first sentence. Catherine is trying to revisit the past by booking Hollowtree Cottage but it’s out of season, the weather is foul and her trip takes a turn for the worse before she even finds the cottage. In the dark she comes across a stranger who changes everything for her.

This is a beautifully descriptive and well-told story and I thoroughly enjoyed Gaughan’s writing style. The atmosphere builds wonderfully throughout and although I thought I could see the likely outcome it was such an enjoyable read the ending still satisfied. This is an excellent introduction to this authors work and I highly recommend.

I should also add that is it FREE to download, and you can do so here…

About Georgia Rose

Georgia Rose is a writer and the author of the romantic and suspenseful Grayson Trilogy books: A Single Step, Before the Dawn and Thicker than Water. A short story, The Joker, based on a favourite character from the series followed and is free to download from Amazon. Her fourth novel, Parallel Lies, a standalone, encompasses crime along with Georgia’s usual blending of genre. Following a long stint working in the law Georgia set up her own business providing administration services for other companies which she does to this day managing to entwine that work along with her writing. Georgia’s background in countryside living, riding, instructing and working with horses has provided the knowledge needed for some of her storylines; the others are a product of her passion for people watching and her overactive imagination! Her busy life is set in a tranquil part of rural Cambridgeshire in the UK where she lives with her much neglected husband and dog. Their son, currently at university, comes and goes and their daughter, having delighted them all for long enough, has eventually moved out, got married, and is discovering the joys of being all grown up and having a mortgage.
