I picked this short little piece because I enjoy murder mysteries that are told with some humor and I wanted to sample Stephanie Bond’s writing.  It was a hit on both counts.  I enjoyed the story and I want to read more from this author.

The heroine allows her ex-cheating boyfriend in to sleep off a drunk on his couch only to find him still lying there the next morning stabbed through the heart with one of her kitchen knives leaving her the prime suspect and having to call her ex-husband to defend her.

This one was a great short story read for something quick, but well-written.  The heroine has made a few flub-ups in her time and they all come back to roost quickly in this story.  I liked the sassy first person point of view that helped give the background of the story so that I wasn’t lost.  It even had a few lovely twists in it that had me and the heroine suspecting nearly everyone and totally getting it wrong about who the murderer was.

So if you’re looking for something short and a little spicy when it comes to your romantic suspense, give this one a whirl.

I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.

Good to hear! I have one of her box sets I think– picked it up when it went on 99cent sale maybe? But never got around to it. It sounds great though. I’ll have to pull that up sooner rather than later. Glad you enjoyed it 🙂

LOL! I think I grabbed that same box set- and haven’t touched it yet of course. Hmmm! I think I’m like Pavlov’s dog when I hear ‘box set’ and $99′ in the same sentence I click purchase.
