These are stories that entertain us and keep us guessing. As the reader, we tend to find ourselves working through the problems that the characters face. It is almost like a fun work out for the brain. In reality, we all face ups and downs and challenge ourselves. Through these stories we get to take a break and see how others do it, but at the same time being very much involved in the mysterious, thrilling, and sometimes suspenseful ride.We all like a little mystery. A puzzle to solve, and enigma or riddle to think through. A hidden secret, possibly a juicy one! Something that gets our hearts pumping, puts us at the edge or seat, has us gripping at the unknown… or possibly known to some but unknown to others. Maybe even scare us a little?
