She's not your fairy godmother's Scrooge.
And this ain't no wonderful life.
On Christmas Eve, Little Miss Muffet sat on her tuffet, plotting the murder of yet another husband, when along came a spirit with some bad news--tonight she will be visited by three ghosts.
According to the spirit, Miss Muffet, VP of Dastardly Deeds at New Never City's Villainous Union, must change her fiendish ways or else suffer a fate worse than curdled curds. As the bell tolls one, she begins her journey through her wicked past as a very short orphan, her depraved present, and a future terrifying enough to make her toss her gingerbread cookies.
Can she change? Better yet, will she?
In getting into the Christmas spirit I downloaded this Amazon freebie from an author who has sat on the Kindle a while but not yet been read.
Forty-odd pages and a skewed interpretation of Dickens's A Christmas Carol.
Opening line…….Little Miss Muffet sat on her tuffet, in front of a picture-perfect scene of orphans starving in the snow……
Well you kind of get a feel for the main character and the direction things will go right there.
"Muffet, tonight you will be visited by three ghosts -"......
"I love a ghost foursome as much as the next girl -"
Entertaining and another notch on the scoreboard, though I would hazard her prose may not be to everyone's taste.
There was enough there to have me wanting to read more from the author in the future, which is just as well. Stolen Kidneys, Dead Hookers & Other Nursery Crimes awaits.
