C. A. (Carol Ann) Newsome writes the Lia Anderson Dog Park Mysteries, a series of fun, romantic suspense/mystery novels which are inspired by and centered around her mornings at the Mount Airy Dog Park with her trio of rescues (rowdy hooligans).A life-long lover of fiction, Carol turned to books and audiobooks during her decade-long recovery from a head injury that occurred when she and her bike were struck by a car. Years of immersing herself in popular fiction lead to imagining the book she wanted to read, and wondering if she could actually write it.She is also an artist with an M.F.A. from the University of Cincinnati. You'll see portraits of some of her favorite four-footed friends on the covers of her books. She enjoys creating community-based public artworks. As an artist, she is best known for her New Leaf Global Good-Will Guerrilla Art Project.Her other interests include astrology, raw food and all forms of psychic phenomena. She likes to sing to her dogs. The dogs are the only ones who like to listen.

31 short stories of various genre. Some are romantic or sad or macabre, but each well-written in it's own short context. A very good sample of different authors that you might or might not want to read further. Don't expect an involved ending to some stories; they are after all 'short' stories.

This is collection has so much variety that there is something for everyone. Some stories are romantic, some are sad, some are funny and others are just bizarre. Genres include romance, action/adventure, and science fiction. Divinity's kiss, a song through time, just one kiss, and strangers were some of my favorites but all of the stories kept me engaged.

Kisses in every genre.... interesting how there are so many ideas around one common simple theme. This is almost a genre sampler in addition to being a nice anthology. Recommended especially if you are stuck in a reading rut. ?...wjj

The third story, written by Shirley Bourget, was crude and disgusting. It had no place in this collection. The other stories were interesting and entertaining.

Mostly sophomoric. Well, the book is free and you get what you pay for.
