Recommends it for: cozy mystery readers
I liked the authors in this anthology, read like old school mysteries, right to the point, solid storylines, and very little romance to take away from the plot. A good book to read when you're in a reading rut or can't decide what to read next.

A collection of short stories by various authors. Very disappointed. None of the authors have the depth or talent of Mary Higgins Clark.
