Susie White and the Right Hand Man by Lucy Felthouse

Susie White and the Right Hand Man is a modern day retelling of Snow White.  Susie lost her mom at the age of 15 and wants nothing but for her father to carry on and find happiness.  Unfortunately, happiness for him comes from Louise, an evil, conniving witch of a stepmother.  Louise is a practitioner and purveyor of the dark arts and she wants Susie out of the way. However, Louise never figured on Scott, her right hand man, and Susie falling for each other.  Scott and Susie devise a plan that will render Louise powerless.  A “blood sacrifice” is made; joining the two lovers together.

The story was off to a powerful start. The writing and storytelling are captivating and flows perfectly.  But, sadly when it is only 14 pages in length it will surely leave you hanging. It was more like a teaser than a novella.  It has so much potential to be a full length novel. Really hope the author continues it.
