“Lac Du Mort And Other Stories” by Joanne Van Leerdam - IHIBRP 5-Star Book Review

8 Dramatic & Terrifying Tales Of The Macabre!

“Lac Du Mort And Other Stories”, Author Joanne Van Leerdam’s latest journey into the macabre, contains 8 spine-chilling horror shorts you can savor in just a single evening. Readers will find Van Leerdam’s tales more than meet their yearning for a good fright—with each macabre telling as dramatic and terrifying as the next. The author elaborates on the theme that, once Death tags you, there is little to no recourse you can take in trying to change your fate.

Van Leerdam’s keen sense of humor only compliments her ability as a horror author to keep one on the edge of their seat. Her quiet and quintessential cul-de-sac might be a model for any neighborhood—containing its share of characters that range from the respectable to the pathetic… and the truly despicable, but readers will find that this neighborhood is anything but typical. From start to finish, Van Leerdam’s characters move through the stages of grief—from denial, to anger, to bargaining, and finally to acceptance—in a pulse-pounding dance that seals their fates. In the end, these seemingly random stories of neighbors coping with various random paranormal events all wind together in an overall theme that is unveiled only at the very end.

I highly recommend this compact collection of imaginative horror shorts that only takes about an hour to read, and I suggest it might best be appreciated on a dark and chilling night with a full moon overhead!

Congratulations to the author on this award-winning story! This novel will be permanently featured on my website at under IHIBRP 5 Star Recommended Reads!
