MY REVIEW :
Excellent short story! With all the online dating going on, our friends constantly warn us to be safe, meet in a public place, let people know where you are going. This is exactly what Mandy does. She even brings a gun, and has off duty police looking out for her. None of these safety measures are enough. A few hours later, Mandy finds herself with a flat tire on a dark road. She sees someone coming to her rescue, and he’s her date, with a tire iron. What happens next is what makes Ashley Fontaine’s writing great. Twists, and turns, and unexpected surprises in the story, and kept me on the edge of my chair. I don’t say this lightly, I read Horror, and don’t get fazed by much. I LOVED Number Seventy-Five, and would recommend this book.
