STIRRING THE SHEETS by Chad Lutzke
STIRRING THE SHEETS is a beautiful novella of love and loss. It is a deeply emotional tale of loneliness and letting go. Bloodshot Books does a great job with this book. The cover art is enthralling and the book is edited well.
Chad Lutzke writes like there's no tomorrow. He leaves it all on the pages. The characters in this book are given just enough depth to flourish. You get to find out a great deal in a short period of time. The supporting cast is every bit as intriguing as the main characters.
Emmett is an old decrepit funeral home worker who can't quite cope with the loss of his beloved wife. He spends his lonely nights on the couch. He seeks refuge in the most disturbing way imaginable.
STIRRING THE SHEETS is equal parts captivating and creepy. I loved every single page of this book. Chad Lutzke's writing is superb. This character-driven story reads quick and the ending is to my liking. There isn't any fluff or wasted words. The story stays tight, and there are no hiccups in the storyline.
This is my first time reading Chad Lutzke, but it definitely won't be the last. STIRRING THE SHEETS packs one helluva punch–I'm talking emotional. If you like great characters and storytelling, then this novella is the one for you.
