    An Even Split between fantastic and dreadful

    Maggie Shayne "Till Death" I've never read anything from this author but I found her story extremely predictable. Kira Monroe aka Kira McLellan has been notified that her maternal family in Scotland that she had no idea existed, has had a death in the family and she stands to inherit a sizable inheritance. However, there are some stipulations to the will that may either cost Kira her life or end the family curse once and for all. Most of the McLellan women die way before their time, due to a curse put on them by a scorn ancestor. 2.5/5

    Jeaniene Frost "Happily Never After" I loved this story. I got this book soley for Jeaniene's short story and I was not disappointed. Greta, an old friend of Bones has contacted him and asked that he help out her grandkids who are having a bit of trouble with the local mob. Bones delegates the request to his trustworthy friend Chance. Isabella, Greta's granddaughter, is being bullied by a local mobster into marrying him and using her brother, Frazier's safety as leverage. This was a great story; Chance and Isa have great chemistry. Jeaniene was able to build this story w/ a bit of background, action, mystery and touch of romance, I was pretty impressed. Cat wasn't in this one but it was still nice to get a little taste of Bone's twisted sense of humor. 5/5

    Terri Garey "Ghoul's Night Out" This was another good story. Nicki Styx, has the ability to see dead people. Nicki has been roped into being a bridesmaid for her cousin. Not only is she forced to where the world's fuglist dress, but now she's being stalked by a dead girl. Nicki puts two and two together and realizes that this ghost was the original bridesmaid she's filling in for. After hearing about the ghost's untimely demise, Nicki sets out to help her solve her own murder. I've never read anything from this author but I enjoyed this story so much, that I will definitely read her Nicki Styx series. 5/5

    Kathryn Smith "Wedding Knight by Kathryn Smith" This story was my least favorite. I had a very hard time getting into it. It was completely boring and the epitome of dull. I've never read anything from this author and probably won't again in the future. 1/5

    As far as anthologies go, this one was successful. There were two duds but overall I enjoyed myself. I recommend this anthology and Jeaniene's entire Night Huntress series.

     I only got this collection because it had a story from Jeanine

     I only got this collection because it had a story from Jeanine Frost. One of my favorites.




         It's always a risk when you pick up any story collection in finding one that is mostly composed of stories you enjoy. This was a typical, average collection. Not bad, but not great either. Average. It's common theme was weddings with supernatural problems.




         Since this only contains four tales, I'll look at each story.




         The first tale is by Maggie Shayne. It's about a family curse. As I read this story, I thought , ok, interesting, but as I found out the exact specifications of the curse, the movie Practical Magic came to mind. The curse was different but still connected to husbands, and cast by an ancestral witch. It could have been more inventive. Fell short.




         The second tale is by Jeanine Frost. I read her Night Huntress series. The first is Halfway to the Grave. This tale is about a vampire who has been asked to find a missing Grandson and stop a wedding. This story could have been better if it was set in an earlier time. Its a little far fetched that in this day and age, that some one could get away with forcing someone into marriage, by holding a family member hostage, without providing proof. A few changes to the story, and it would have been better. 




         The third tale is by Terri Garey. Girl dies, comes back as a ghost whisperer. Throw in a hillbilly cousin's wedding, and a ghost, then you have a decent tale of finding justice and putting a spirit to rest. 




         The fourth tale is by Kathryn Smith : Vampire meets girl, leaves girl after she declares her love for him. Comes back and stops her from getting married to someone with a past connection to him. Not a bad tale. I thought slut was a more modern word, and if your going to use the word arse don't add hole to it. It's weird and doesn't look right.This story needed a bit more to it, expand a little with the big confrontation, ending felt to predictable, could have been done differently, creatively. Otherwise like the others, not bad.
