"I loved the end result of this story, and I was hanging on the edge of my seat the entire time." --Jaunts & Haunts Book Review

It was just another prank, right?

Roy owns the only drive-thru funeral home in the state of Maine.

With such an unconventional business, Roy’s come to expect the occasional prank - namely students from the nearby medical school leaving cadavers outside his drive-thru window.

But this latest joke isn’t the quite the same. This cadaver appears well-dressed, shows no signs of decomposition, and doesn’t need any support to keep it from flopping over.

Even more peculiar? It’s begging to be let in.

I gave this short story five stars!

This was the perfect light read for my day. Roy is a questionable businessman running a drive-thru funeral home. He's used to the pranks from the nearby college involving cadavers, but when he finds a person smooshed up against his drive-thru window begging to be let in, his world is forever changed.

Despite his shortcomings, I really liked the character of Roy. He's flawed, selfish and willing to do anything to make his business prosper. As we learn more about him and the story unfolds, I couldn't help but wonder if all of this was some kind of karmic payback for his shady business dealings.

The plot was great! I mean, you've got this almost dead person up against a drive-thru window begging to be let in. That's terrifying! Roy's reaction made total sense, and though I can't spoil anything, I can tell you I would not let that person inside! That situation has weird written all over it. I loved the end result of this story, and I was hanging on the edge of my seat the entire time.

The writing was expertly done, easy to follow, and I was able to blast through this short story on my lunch break. Can't get much better than that!

If you're looking for a quick bookish bite, The Drive-Thru Window is a wonderful little macabre story to give a read.

Happy Reading!
