Mediocre to average tales presented in this collection.....The reason I requested a copy of this book was due to fact that I am a huge 'short story buff' and this contemporary set claimed to be a 336 page collection (so I figured there must be something out of the 300+ pages that will be worth my while!!)

What I got was an ARC edition of 199 pages and after trekking through this volume I can honestly say that none of these tales stand out.

The author is quite talented but her craft needs more polish IMHO......
