Harmony Hills

My friend Sarah grinned at me and flipped her laptop around so that I could see it.

“Harmony Hills?” I asked as I sipped my smoothie.

“Yeah,” Sarah replied. “We totally need to get away for the long weekend coming up.”

I looked at the website again; the rolling green hills and sparkling river did look appealing. Sarah and I had just finished the last of our University exams and were exhausted from late night cram sessions. My eyes bulged at the price.

“At that price?” I squealed and pointed a finger at the offending screen.

“It’s a one off, Trish. C’mon, treat yourself for once.”

“I’m still paying off my Uni loan.”

A shadow crept over me and the hair on the back of my neck stood tall at attention. Sarah’s eyes widened in shock and at the same time I felt something cold press into my skin. A clammy hand landed on my bare shoulder and warm air breathed into my ear.

“You cannot escape,” the voice hissed.

I spun around and came face to face with Lucy; my cousin.

“Long time no see,” Sarah laughed.

I looked at Lucy’s large necklace which was the cold item that pressed into my neck. I breathed a sigh of relief; I thought it was a weapon.

“Don’t do that!” I grumbled.

“You’re no fun,” Lucy pouted. A man wrapped his arms around her waist. Gary was her boyfriend and studied engineering at our university.

“Hey, we are planning to spend next weekend away, wanna join?” Sarah chirped.

“Yeah, sounds great. You keen, Gary?”

“You kidding? I need to take a break from all this work,” Gary agreed.

“Well, cheap skate, here refuses to go to Harmony Hills,” Sarah smirked at me. I gave her my infamous death glare.

“Not everybody has money, you know,” I sighed.

“If we have a group booking, maybe they will give us a discount?”

“Worth a try, I suppose,” I admitted.

“Awesome, I’ll see if Carly and Pete will come,” Gary smiled.

I inwardly cringed. Carly and I were not the best of friends. She sneers at anyone who cannot identify at least six shades of red; or any colour for that matter. I happen to be one of those people. Carly is studying beauty therapy and I can’t picture her staying in a cabin with us. I forced a smile as Lucy and Gary waved goodbye.

“I don’t want Carly with us,” I growled to my best friend.

“She won’t be staying in the same room as us, Trish,” she soothed.

“Fine.”

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

smile4me: Exciting page turner. I was barely able to put it down to go to bed. I can usually figure out the twists before they are revealed but not this time! Such a thrill to be surprised. I can hardly wait for the follow up!!

Ahmad Momenai: it's so amazing to see the story build up, in each chapter a part would be started and made its way towards the main story and even sometimes i would doubt which story was the main story.i have read about half the story and it was worth every moment;i am a book worm and i have read LotR, Harry po...

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

Arabella: The catchy blurb caught my attention. The story is creepy but I would not qualify it as a horror story. The characters are likeable and I’m impatiently waiting for new stories from Obsidian Fae.

Catherine Kopf: This novel has an interesting perspective on a broken mind that obviously the author took a lot of time into creating. The main protagonist is very fleshed out and complex, allowing the readers to root for and feel empathy towards him. There is enough in there to really give the reader an emotion...

christylynnr5: This was beyond amazing! Its plot was so unique! It was a beautiful romance story with a mystery twist! I can't believe it ended the way it did!!!! There HAS to be a second book!! This needs to be published and made into a series!

Cat32: I enjoyed the good versus evil aspect of this novel, especially as the protagonist has to discover how to access that good to save his family. I sat down to begin reading this story, and only put it down long enough to eat with the family! the book does an excellent job of building the suspense, ...

Girl on Fire: Great story, line Alex!!!It really has a edge on it. It put me on edge with its thrill. Can't wait to read the rest.!!!

Alex Reltin: This is a great story! I love how well you go into detail and emotions of Capri, and Mel. You have amazing dialogue and overall it's just a thrill to read!The only critique I could find is that some of the paragraphs should be separated.

C.K. Bachman: Just read the first chapter. Love how the main character thinks and is conflicted over his wife and the trickery he uses on her.

TheGhostWritter: I enjoyed your book, great plot, random twists and great characters, Loved it, One suggestion is to keep paragraphs short, at one point I might have begun skipping paragraphs because they became a little to long, bit other wise great book, brilliant plot, and bloody amazing thriller.
