Tour & Review~Sweetest Treat by AR Von

by AR Von


Cursed by an evil witch, 
Meesh and her brother Mitch
 will now crave sweets forever.
In Meesh's case,
it's barely contained until the one day
she walks into the new sweet shop in town.
Meesh encounters something 
that she craves more than sugar.

(This story is an adult spin on the popular Hansel & Gretel fairy tale, Gretel's life. Hansel's will follow soon...)



I lucked out and was able to get a review copy of this book. Now, I love fairytales, and while I have a couple twisted fairytale books on my kindle, I haven't had the opportunity to read them yet. So with this being my first one, I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was pleased with the result. This is a twisted fairytale of Hansel and Gretel. Cursed with the need for sweet treats, they fall in love with a new candy store that has been opened….and the owner is extremely sweet himself. Being a short story, of course everything is moving at a quick pace, but AR Von was able to achieve the quick pace without the story seeming rushed. I think that balance is very important with short stories, and it's a big part of my rating for short stories. This was a very good short story!! Absolutely 4 STARS!



A.R. was born and raised in Bronx, NY and is the oldest daughter of two girls. She holds an Associate's Degree in Computer Science and Information Technology, which was only briefly used. She's a mother of two entertaining teen boys (as well as a lovely fawn Chihuahua, whom she considers her furry daughter.) She's also a wife to a delightfully handsome and amazingly funny man-beast. She loves anything dragon and fantasy related. In her free time she enjoys exercising, listening to music, hiking, cooking, dancing and writing. She also loves a great adventure in and out of a book!

She writes to free her mind of its constant wondering and priceless clutter. She thrives on the fact she can share some of it with readers that have the same passion for a great story.
