I found this short murder mystery by Jennette Green for free on the Kindle shop, and I'm afraid I have to say that it would have been a bad idea to actually pay for it. Neither the writing style nor the plot are particularly good; I did not learn enough about the main character to really care about what was happening to her, or to her neighbours (one of them gets murdered, another one attacked).
On the author's home page, the summary for "Murder by Nightmare" reads:
May has never liked to be alone at night, because that's when nightmares haunt her.All that sounds like it could make for a suspense-filled evening, tucked up cosily in bed with my Kindle and some chocolate. Instead, what I found was some very illogical behaviour from both the heroine and her neighbours, descriptions that did not lend any credibility to neither characters nor story, and me ending up only caring for Marmalade, May's ginger cat (nothing happens to him, I can tell you that without spoiling the story for you).
However, when her husband leaves for the weekend, she's certain she'll be safe home alone in their suburban neighborhood. But when the man next door is attacked, and the woman across the street is murdered, her life begins to take on a nightmarish quality. Who is behind the attacks? Will the nightmares ever end?
I can almost hear my sister's reasonable voice, telling me that I shouldn't expect any better with all the free downloads from the Kindle shop. Well, I've had some really good reads come my way through this method. This novelette wasn't one of them.
