Review by The Jeep Diva
Seat Sixty-Five by Helena Maeve was a very strange read. Hauntingly beautiful yet mysterious. All the hints were there, I just missed them. Or better yet, they were cleverly disguised by the author until you read the book and had your AHA! moment. It is a story worth reading if nothing else, so you can have the story of Felix and Stefan to linger in your thoughts as well.

This is my first book by this author and I have to admit, she has me intrigued. I actually read this book twice – just got the end and started back at page one. It’s a mystery – a ghost story and things don’t really add up until you have read the story and you are surprised by the hook. For it being a short story the author really packs a lot into the telling of this tale and I can say I did not see the ending coming. But for all Helena Maeve tells you in this story she leaves all that and more out of it – there are a lot of unanswered questions in this tale which the author leaves hanging on purpose. Do I wish the book had been longer – more fleshed out – YES! Was I enchanted while I read it, absolutely! If you want to be taken on a short romantic mystery ride then grab this book.
Review by Susan
Seat Sixty-Five by Helena Maeve is not a traditional romance nor is it a not-romance. Instead it is a fascinating paranormal that is perfect for the month of October. The main character Felix is running from a toxic relationship that is revealed in flashbacks and his comments to the handsome stranger he follows off their stalled train. Felix goes with the stranger to his house even though he has some trepidations, but they are less a concern than escaping his past. Once at the house there are some very hot scenes that will keep the reader hooked on this unlikely duo. The author does a good job of switching between these scenes and creating the atmosphere that makes the ending perfect for the story of these two troubled characters.
Review by Tracy Gee
When I started to read this book I honestly thought I was going to be reading a contemporary short story, imagine my shock when I actually realised it was paranormal. A very weird one at that, though I couldn't put it down, I had to read it in one sitting. I love the book cover, the blurb had me fascinated, I had to read the full story. This is a new author for me, I like her writing style, though it was very different from any other I have read. Overall and interesting quick read that will make you wonder what is real. I would recommend to those that like a different read.
Review by Multitasking Mommas
The portion of narrative taking place on the train set up a very nice mystery and mood. It felt like an old 1940s black and white movie. I was there and I was full invested in characters and plot. The story intrigued me. I read the entire short piece in one sitting, so there was something in it that kept me going and that says a lot.
