His Happy Place by Zakiya Dalila Harris @zakiya_harris #ShaynaSmall @BrillancePub

the setup…

Ama and her boyfriend Nathan Davis have dated exclusively for four months and things seem to be getting serious. He’s rather straight laced and she’s more free spirited but Ama likes the way he treats her, which is a nice change from her past relationships. When Nathan invites her for a weekend getaway at his upstate cabin (his happy place), she believes it means he’s ready for a commitment. Unfortunately, he’s ready for something but not what Ama was counting on.

the heart of the story…

Be forewarned that the prologue begins with the ending, which may be spoilerish for some. However, it intrigued me to learn more about how they got there. It’s a strange story with some paranormal angles, which added to the creepiness. I needed to hang in there to the end.

the narration…

The story is told from Ama’s point of view and the narrator wonderfully captured her personality and spirit, even when things started to get weird. She also elevated the creepy factor!

the bottom line…

I kind of liked the unconventional structure of this story, knowing how things end but being clueless as to what led to that place. I liked the story, especially the narration, and just wish I had a little bit more before it ended. Much was left to my imagination and I suppose that’s the point, especially in a short story.
