A Death in Calgary is a novella that is not only very enjoyable, but it can make you think about your own life and the way you live it. Set in a small town where everybody knows you and your business, a stranger drives into town. It's instant gossip, especially when the stranger is driving a 1964 black Cadillac hearse. Who is he and what is he doing in Calgary? Little do the townspeople know that driving the hearse is death himself, and that the town will never be the same. Going by the name of Logan, death follows, no matter where he travels. Calgary is no exception. The town doesn't connect the higher than average death rate to the stranger, even if being around him does give them the feeling that something isn't quite right. Logan has been hunting for something during all his years of travel. Little did he know he would find the answer in the small town of Calgary with the local handyman, Sam. But along with the answer that Logan seeks comes a life and death dilemma that only Sam can solve. Written with an insight to human nature that many rarely find, vivid characters and settings make this novella a definite plus to any reading library. I highly recommend it and eagerly await much more of M.B. Daughtery's work.

She misspells her own character's name. (Goody, and then in the same paragraph, Goodie.) Poor grammar. Poor dialogue. Poor writing. Don't bother with this one.

The first chapter is missing! I won't even start the book without the first chapter.

This book for me was a bit strange. It's a very short book and the beginning was a little odd but once I got to the ending the whole book made sense and I ended up liking it.

This was really good for a short story ! I have noticed that alot of the ebooks or nook books have alot of mistakes in them but is it the writers errors? Maybe that's why they are free!!!

I didn't enjoy it. Story line was different from what I thought it would be. There was a surprisingly good ending and interesting characters.
