Title: 137 Owens Street
Author: DC Juris
Publisher: Breathless Press
Matthew is going insane. But the man reaching out to Matthew in his visions might be his only chance to find the truth or his true love.
Matthew is going insane. How else can he explain remembering things he doesn’t own or trips his wife never took? Not to mention the visions, and the phantom in the café. But when the man in the visions reaches out to him with an explanation, and the phantom from the café tracks him down, things start to make a little more sense. Morgan is a devout Christian. He believes in God, heaven, hell, and the Bible. But his world spins out of control when his husband Matthew disappears and a mysterious man tells a tale outside the realm of reality. How can Morgan put his faith in something so far-fetched? And what will happen to Matthew if he doesn’t?
When DC decides he wants to write a story to keep you guessing he really does a hell of a job at it. I will be honest, I have to be. I really found myself lost at the start of the story, I had no idea what in the world happened, one second Matthew and Morgan are discussing chips in the car in the parking lot of the grocery store, and the next Matthew is melting from the heat and grumbling over Morgan taking so long about buying a box of crackers. When finally the door to the car opens and closes, it’s not Morgan sitting in the seat of the car without air, it’s a woman named Stephanie, and apparently she’s his wife.
Call me confused, I can’t wait for you to read Matthews thoughts, and you too will be, but there’s a method behind the madness of this story. Once we are in Matthews head for sometime with him thinking he’s lost his mind, we are also thinking maybe we have read something wrong, or missed something, that is until you get to his husband’s POV, Morgan. Then we know something fishy is going on here.
I encourage you to read this story, I promise, DC does pull it off with skill of a seasoned writer, there are no plot holes, the characters are very well done, and my heart loves Morgan. He’s a sweet man who loves his husband dearly. Poor Matthew on the other hand is clueless and lost for most of the book, but I’ll gladly put that on DC. Thank you, DC, for keeping my mind working and ready for more.
