Review: 13 mysteries. 13! That makes me excited. And this is definitely an anthology to get excited about. You only have to look at the author's represented here to understand that.

Reviewing all 3 isn't something easy to do, and rather than doing that, I'm going to say, there's something for everyone in this collection.

I have to say that some were hit and miss for me, but with 13 stories, that's going to happen, but over all, this was a really enjoyable collection of books that will please most any mystery lover.

Rating: 4 flowers

Hey Andrea--
You are so right. Not every story will resonate with every reader. And that's good! Because an anthology like this is intended to help readers find a new author--and sometimes that means stepping away from what we typically read. Thanks so much for having us.

Thanks, Andrea. The beauty of 13 different writers is that readers are sure to find some new to them mysteries to love. Lots of series here -- and we love finding new series.
