Short story review: The Gift by Alison Gaylin (Hush Collection)


This is a part of Amazon’s summer short story grouping called Hush Collection. All of the short stories and the Audible addition are free with Prime right now.

Lyla McCord is a famous actress and the other half of the famous couple of Lyla and Nolan. Lyla is contacted the night of an awards ceremony that her daughter has vanished. Lyla is beside herself with worry and eventually trusts in a psychic to help her find her daughter. What the psychic tells Lyla shakes her to the core.

My Thoughts:

This was a quick read that was intriguing and surprising at the end. I didn’t see the ending coming on this one. I liked the twist and enjoyed this short story from the collection.
