Longer review coming later …

Bottom Line: I’m about halfway through this multi-author collection & I’m very much enjoying the introduction to these authors, their writing styles & their characters. Most of the stories are a prequel – or a bonus story – to ongoing series, so it really whets your appetite for more time in those story worlds. Of the stories I’ve read so far, I liked some more than others but enjoyed each one nonetheless. I also appreciated how, for the most part, these short stories didn’t feel incomplete or rushed but instead seemed well developed and layered. A great way to pass the weekend!

(I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.)

My Rating: 4 stars / loved it!

Two US Today bestselling authors are among these nine authors who hail from Germany, Italy, Northern Ireland and the United States.

Their current and past occupations are diverse and include lawyer, perfumery shop owner, biology lecturer, marketing consultant, global house and pet sitter, interior designer, university campus minister, journalist, tea lady, arborist, bookseller and lottery archivist.

Their interests and hobbies are broad too. Here’s just a few: anthropology, walking and hiking, quilting, sailing, lindy hop dancing, suburban homesteading, sci-fi and urban fantasy, playing bagpipes and poetry. While many have traveled and lived in places around the world that were new and exciting to them, one even lives in a tiny campervan that’s traversed several American states this year!

Yet as diverse as they are, they all share a love of cozy mysteries and telling a good tale. And that’s what they have done in this collection of stories and novellas that introduces readers to characters in each author’s cozy mystery series.
