Lunch Reads Volume 1: Two Short Mystery Stories

In this first edition of short stories offered by Istoria Books (eBooks You Want to Read at Prices You Want to Pay), readers can devour two tasty and satisfying tales of suspense and cozy mystery. Jenny Milchman and Libby Sternberg take readers on domestic journeys where the prosaic turns into the perplexing, creating everyday dramas that aren’t easily resolved.

The Very Old Man…by Jenny Milchman
A chance encounter in a grocery store spooks a young mother. When small accidents begin to happen around her young child, she wonders if the old man who'd given her daughter a quarter is to blame.

Escape From Southern Point…by Libby Sternberg
At small town on the Outer Banks, a loving groom fails to show up on his wedding day. As family and friends try to locate him and explain his absence, the bride's aunt draws on town gossip to figure out where he's gone, unintentionally mimicking the Jessica-Fletcher-like character her sister actress plays on TV.
