Lily McIntire likes to win, and isn't one to run from a challenge, so when her cocky and arrogant co-worker/sworn enemy, Marcus Black, issues a dare she is all too eager to accept the dare and finally have the opportunity to put him in his place. Spending the night in a rumored haunted house sounds easy enough to Lily, especially when there's a free trip to Hawaii on the line, but once she's there and spooky things start happening she seriously starts to wonder what she has gotten herself into. Marcus has a little plan of his own and decides to up the anti a little bit, in hopes that Lily will get spooked and concede in defeat, but what happens when the after life intervenes and things don't go quite according to plan...
This short, but oh so very entertaining story captivated my attention right from the start and had me on the edge of my seat the whole way through. The story line was very engaging, suspenseful, and packed with plenty of sizzle. I got so caught up in this story that I ended up devouring it in one sitting, because I had to know who was going to win the bet! The plot was very creative and unlike anything else that I have read, it was definitely a refreshing change of pace for me. I would love to see Ms. Lemmon make a return to visit to the Willow Mansion and possibly turn this into a series!
As you sometimes find with shorter stories, things seem to be a bit rushed and not as detailed as you'd hope for, and sometimes leave you disappointed and hoping for a little more. However, I am happy to report that with this story that is NOT the case at all, I found it to be quite satisfying. The story line had a nice flow to it, and the character descriptions allowed me to get a good mental picture of each one of them. I really enjoyed this story and DEFINITELY think it's one you should add to your reading list!
Jessica Lemmon has created a true literary treat for readers with this one, "I DARE YOU" to read it!
