Moolah and Moonshine (Petit Morts)

Moolah and Moonshine - Jordan Castillo Price Emmett's best friend Rosemary is about to move away to a new job in paris. Emmett doesn't want to be left behind, but he can't help it as all his money is tied up in his house. The house is quietly falling apart all over, will cost far too much to fix, and smells like old cabbage.

Then Chance at Sweets to the Sweet, introduces Emmett to Sam, who is big dark and handsome, and 'good with his hands'. Emmett invites Sam over to see what can be done, and the two go down to investigate the basement. And what they find is much, much, Much more than just a mysterious cabbagey smell.

I thought this was a realy great story, but it really deserved much more than a 50 page ebook. The plot twist was just too massive for such a small book. It was well done for what it was, but it really needed a much bigger space for such a huge concept.

With the mystery and magic of this story, it leaves no question in my mind that Sweets to the Sweet is not just the ordinary sweet shop, and Chance cannot be just an ordinary guy, and I can't wait to see if the later novelettes give more detail.
