Heavenly Haven is a beautifully-woven short story by Christine Lindsay.
It is Shaina and Jack’s tenth wedding anniversary, and Shaina has great plans for the evening. She is devastated when her husband announces he has to work, and their marriage turns as icy as the weather outside. In an attempt to deal with her disappointment, Shaina makes a foolhardy decision that puts her and her young children in deadly peril.
Christine’s gift with words comes to the fore as she describes the scenery in 3D–without for one minute slowing down the action. I could see the ice-encrusted trees and ski-slopes thick with heavy banks of snow. I could feel the terror of the climax and held my breath as I sped through the words, anxious to see how the story would end.
This is a Christmas story with a difference, and I recommend it for a cosy evening’s read.
I received this story in return for an honest review, and I didn’t hesitate to award it five stars on Amazon.
