Overmorrow by H.L. Cherryholmes is a genre-defying tale with strong hints of the supernatural, a story that features the stories of three misfits whose lives converge in an unlikely sweeting. Meredith Percy hasn't been showing a lot of progress at the rehab and when someone suggests that it might be because she is still clinging to her past, she risks everything and sets out to find answers. Elijah Blanchard is on his way to a funeral. Yvonne Martinez is going back home after a visit to her friend. A storm interrupts the journeys of these three characters who find themselves taking shelter in a bar called Overmorrow, a bar that shouldn’t be there in the first place. None of them gets to where they want to be. But the chance meeting at Overmorrow opens an adventure that is spellbinding as readers explore the stories of these characters. Meredith Percy, the narrator, invites readers into a world where reality merges with the supernatural, creating a captivating and unpredictable narrative.

The first thing that strikes the reader is the fact that these characters find themselves in unexpected circumstances, and their connection to the bar goes beyond the snowstorm. The storytelling is a unique blend of personal histories, including dragon-like monsters, magical vehicles, demonic entities, and witches. As the characters share their life stories, readers are drawn into a realm where reality and fantasy cohabitate, an innovative and compelling narrative structure.

Overmorrow offers a wonderful worldbuilding, a world where mysteries are aplenty and where readers hardly know what can happen next. The author introduces enigmatic elements such as ''Angels,'' who encourage the characters to confront their demons. The narrative moves forward without the traditional chapter breaks, allowing each character's story to seamlessly flow into the next. This format builds suspense and maintains a sense of continuity. H.L. Cherryholmes presents a thrilling and unconventional piece of fiction that rewards dedicated readers with a surprising and vast universe of possibilities. The intriguing characters plunge readers into a dreamlike world. The writing is beautiful and the author has the extraordinary gift of pulling the readers into the inner worlds of the characters — even chaotic.  A delightful read with strong psychological and supernatural underpinnings.
