Things in the Mirror - D.J. Shaw

Well they can't all be good. Still working through my random kindle freebie mound.

Probably the best thing about this story is that it's short. On the other hand it could have been a whole lot shorter, it's not like there's anything original going on here, it's a very well worn plot

"the things you think you see out of the corner of your eye in the mirror are real and want out, but need to swap places with something to get there".

(show spoiler)

Just didn't work for me. One minute the main character doesn't know what's going on, the next she has known all about it for years. The ending is hardly the shock it's intended to be (and why the random POV shift for one final paragraph?). The protagonist's husband is mad unlikeable, and she's no peach herself.
