A startling short story.

This short story kept me entertained from the beginning paragraph. What a way to suck you in, especially since my favorite color is blue. The characters are believable and a little eccentric. The death is tragic but the conclusion is not what you would expect.

I liked the main character, Sarabeth and her friend the Chief of Police, Vanessa they make a good team. Vanessa is a little more laid back and keeps things to herself, whereas Sarabeth is noisy. Only in a small town...more

This was okay but I really didn't get into it too much. Although I wasn't too enthused with how the mystery was solved I did think it was an interesting twist. Really annoyed at all the excerpts for all the other books which made me think I was getting a meatier novella than this really was.

This was a short story and I enjoyed it. I kept thinking that it belonged to one of her other series so I was a little confused in the beginning until I realized this was a stand alone.

Barely a short story. Nicely written, but nothing special. Appears to exist primarily as a promo for her next real book.
