Books: The Cheapest Vacation You Can Buy

The Graveyard KissFrom Goodreads:

Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all…

But really? Is it? Luci, a true believer in Victorian love poetry, is about to find out whether her teenaged heart and soul is up to surviving a boyfriend who prefers elegies … and the ancient evil he might have dug up on the Internet.


This short story is an entertaining read, with a twist that is absolutely perfect. Doidge’s stories always draw me in, and although this is a very short story set in the world of The Dowser Series, it’s characters are new. And yet, the characterization and emotions Doidge elegantly writes onto the page quickly drew me into the plot—even at only 7000 words. I’d love to see this go somewhere—perhaps Luci will show up in the next Dowser Series novel? One can hope. Four stars.

4 stars
