Review: Cracked Smile

Cracked Smile Cracked Smile by Amanda Williams
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is the first book I've read from this author, and I commend her on her debut novella. The horror/thriller genre is not an easy one and I think she's done a good job with this.

I'm giving it a 3.5 star rating! The only reasons it didn't quite get the four, is that there were a few editing issues, and it felt a little rushed. I would have liked to see things play out a little more.

Cracked Smile tells the tale of Britney and her family, and a creepy doll with a cracked smile. All sorts of crazy things start happening around their new home, and the blame falls on Britney.

I thought this was quite an original tale, and I loved how creepy the doll was. I'll never look at another doll the same way again! And then there was the ending! Now, it takes a lot to surprise me, but I have to say, I did not see that ending coming! Fab little twist there!

I look forward to seeing what else this author brings to the table.
