     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.
