Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I just loved this story. It is the first I have read by this author but won't be the last. There were moments I was laughing out loud. It is set to the theme of Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None. But such a different take on it. When you read why the victims are being killed, you won't have any sympathy for them. I read this book in the holiday collection of stories Cozy Holiday Shorts. This one was worth what I paid just for having the pleasure to read it.
I would love to see more short stories . I have them all and loved them all
