I’ve told my friend Lauralynn Elliott many times now that she has a knack for giving me the heebie-jeebies. Her descriptions, and the build up as she dangles new details, always leaves me thinking about those details after I’ve finished the book.
If you’re looking for a fun read to creep you out as Halloween approaches, with a dash of romance and loads of suspense on top of the horror, check out Lauralynn’s horror novella, The Gnome.
When Tara Reed inherits her grandmother’s house, she shudders at the ugly lawn ornaments she finds, one of which is even politically incorrect. Although she plans to eventually get rid of them, she decides to leave them until her friends come for a visit so they can all have a laugh. Little does she know there’s much more to these statues, and to her family, than she can imagine. When the sheriff, Jake Tyler, tells her the circumstances surrounding her grandmother’s death, she begins to wonder if there’s something strange going on at her house. When her friends come for a visit, Tara realizes they are all being hunted by something supernatural. Tara and her friends fight for their lives in this tale of magic and horror. Will any of them survive the creatures that have been brought to life by one man’s selfish purposes? Will the sheriff be able to save Tara, or will she have to depend on herself for survival? Find out in this chilling story of terror, friendship, and love.
