Who could pass up reading an intriguing collection of 10 full-length cozy mysteries featuring murder, mayhem, and zany capers from amateur female sleuths?!

Since I enjoyed reading all ten mystery tales in the Sleuthing Women Collection, I decided to only provide a general book review instead of individual reviews.

Sleuthing Women is an eclectic collection of first-in-series mystery collection from authors Lois Winston, Jonnie Jacobs, Judy Alter, Maggie Toussaint, Camille Minichino, RP Dahlke, Susa

This is not a teaser collection of short stories and fast beginnings. You get more than your money's worth from this gathering of wonderful, talented authors. I dare anyone not to find at least several five star reads among this anthology. These are full length, meaty offerings that will keep you involved and intrigued. You will get many, many days, even weeks worth of reading and I know that I will be searching out other works by these authors to enjoy.

I did get an advance copy to review but I

I guess proof reading has gone the way of the caboose on a freight train. I am so tired of reading books full of mistakes!
This book was a compilation of ten stories by different authors. I won't review each book individually but my rating of three stars is the average score I would give -- there were some that rated a two, some a three and some a four. Overall I am not sure that I will be searching for the next in any of the series.
I am getting quite discouraged with the books that I have read

Light read,
A 10 book collection of sleuthing women solving murder mysteries. Each book was the first book of a series. Providing readers with an introduction to authors, that they probably wouldn’t have heard of before.
I read all ten books, some books were better than others. A couple of the books were actually quite good.
Nothing spectacular, but well worth reading. A great idea to showcase author’s books in this way. Exceptional value for money.

Overall, this is a nice collection of first books in a series but I wish someone had taken the time to read through it and correct the typos and lines repeating themselves; some books were filled with such mistakes. Still, it was à Nice way to discover new authors.

Very good.

I found each mystery very good. I would read other books by these authors. I liked the main characters better in some stories. It's hard to evaluate after reading all.

What a great way to find new authors to follow. All the stories were full length any very good. Took my time to read them, often in between other books I saw reading for a change of pace.
