and many more!  There is even a craft bonus at the end that you can request.


Amazon * B&N On 10/22 these books were just $0.99 – a steal of a deal IMHO


13 novellas by 12 mystery writers, how could you possibly go wrong with this book?! I don’t think I had read any or much by any of these authors but I definitely plan to search out these author’s other books. Some I might even already have on my Kindle (so many books not enough time).

Not all of the stories had a death, but there was some sort of mystery that needed to be solved. I’m not sure if I can pick out which one was my favorite because they were all good. I don’t think I figured any of them out until the end when the killer or perpetrator was revealed. Of course there were several stories that involved dogs and I might have favored those a bit more, but only because I’m a dog lover!

We give this 5 paws up and enjoyed every last word.
