Horrible Halloween Hazards, by Amelia Morgan (autho), Lori Katz (narrator)

Amelia Morgan, October 2019

Meg Walton, witch and bakery owner, and Connor Smith, werewolf and police detective, are hoping for a happy Halloween together. Unfortunately, the moon will be full the next few days, meaning that Connor will be spending the nights locked up in his cage, to keep his "mindless beast" form from doing any damage.

Also, two criminals he got locked up not nearly long enough ago, are now getting released from prison. One has served out his sentence; the other has gotten paroled, in Connor's opinion, far too soon.

One of the ex-cons confronts Meg in a parking lot, very aggressively. He says he just needs to warn her about what an awful person Connor is, at least in his opinion.

The other ex-con turns up leaving a house on Connor's own street--and then again later, in a restaurant Connor and Meg are having lunch in.

Both men clearly blame Connor for their derailed life plans, but does either intend to seek revenge?

Meg and Connor are both likable, and they're acting like adults in building their relationship.

This is a fun little short story. Recommended.

I received a free copy of this audio short story from the author, and am reviewing it voluntarily.
