Taste of Christmas by Chelsea Field
Taste of Christmas: A Holiday Short Story (An Eat, Pray, Die Humorous Mystery) - Chelsea Field

Izzy and Conner are finally going to get their first date. But it's going to be on Christmas, at his mother's house. She is going to meet his mother, and sister, and she's unsure about a few things. Izzy isn't sure about Conner, as their date continues gets even more unsure about him. 

This book was cute, short story about Conner and Izzy's first date. It takes off right where book two ends, and now I'm excited for the next book.

Cherry Grove: A Short Story from the Bayou Boogaloo by CL Lucas
Cherry Grove: A Short Story from the Bay... Cherry Grove: A Short Story from the Bayou Boogaloo - CL Lucas,CL Lucas

Cherry Grove: A Short Story from the Bayou Boogaloo by CL Lucas is a fast, but disturbing read. It's about a young sailor who will later become the Sheriff of New Iberia, Louisiana. He's on leave in the Philippines. He's looking for a hooker. It's a good thing he finds one who doesn't speak English.

 

I gave it three stars.

 

I received a complimentary kindle copy from Amazon. That did not change my opinion for this review.

A Trucker Christmas: A Romantic Short St... A Trucker Christmas: A Romantic Short Story - Jamie Schlosser

A nice quick revisit from Travis & Angel, who I love. And a clever but brief way to introduce new characters in the series. Unfortunately, they didn't pique my interest enough to continue on with the series though.

 

But this Novella (#2.5) and books #1 and #2 of this series are great reads that I would recommend :)

 

Happy Reading :)

A collection of easy to read, short, crime fiction tales
Offshore: a short story collection - Ann Cleeves

Why did I read it? I enjoy Anne Cleeves' Shetland series, and I also like the television serialisation of her Vera novels, so a collection of short stories to dip into during short breaks sounded good.

What's it about? A collection of short, crime fiction tales featuring some of the characters from Anne Cleeves' books, Willow Reeves, Jimmy Perez, and Vera Stanhope.

What did I like? The stories were short, complete and were well written, holding my attention the whole way through; some even managing a twist in the tale.  

What didn't I like?  There were too few stories?  Sorry, but that's about all I could find to dislike.   

Would I recommend it?  If you are a fan of Anne Cleeves, then, yes, I would recommend them, though they are only available in ebook form.  If you enjoy crime fiction, but don't have the time to read an entire novel, then this may be for you, too.

Crash and Burn (Sigma Force #11.5) by James Rollins
Crash and Burn: A Sigma Force Short Story (Sigma Force series) (SIGMA Force Novels (Audio)) - James Rollins

New York Times bestselling author James Rollins comes a shocking short story, where a chance mishap leads to the discovery of a weapon like no other in . . . Crash and Burn.

On a transatlantic flight, the two black sheep of Sigma Force--Seichan and Kowalski--must set aside their mutual dislike as a mysterious fiery force knocks their aircraft out of the sky. This unlikely duo must use every skill, weapon, and bit of ingenuity to survive a night on a remote volcanic island, where their only refuge is the haunted, bat-plagued grounds of a seemingly deserted resort. But something horrific awaits the two, something born of the latest science but rooted in our basest human instincts. To survive they will need to learn to work together--but even then, it may be too late.

 

*********


Right, I'm just going to do a short review of this novella since there is just not much to say about it. I thought I read it since I just got the latest James Rollins book (woohoo!) and I thought this story may be important to the book (or in some way connected). I do like that it featured two of my favorite characters, but to be honest it was way too short to be more than I appetizer. And, not even an intriguing appetizer. I felt that because the shortness of the story did nothing really happened, or rather everything had to happen in a matter of a few pages and then the end. I could see how this could be a prolog but as a short story? Nah, it didn't work for me.
