I loved it, and I'll be back to tell you about all the other stories in the book I that I love, but currently, this one rates 5 stars.
The first story is A Cat’s Inheritance by Jess Mountifield. A delicate mystery that sets Private Detective James Wilson off on a job that will help him pay his bills. Rufus Dorchester III had inherited the estate of the late Mrs. Wimbourne. The delicate part is Rufus is a cat. James must find out who would be willing to kill Rufus in order to gain his inheritance and is there another victim standing in the way for the murderer’s goal to be reached. It was a quick read, kept me interested and the ending wasn’t easily predictable
The second story was Christmas Lights by E.M Denning. Sam Tyson’s physical scars might have faded but the scars on his soul will more than likely never heal. Chris keeps nudging Sam, trying to get him to open up a bit more, to give this school a chance, to maybe take a risk on Chris. As Sam begins to adjust to the new school, his mind is often wondering back to his best friend Nikki and what secret she is hiding. This story was a bit more investing and angsty but once again a smooth quick read that would be perfect for those afternoons when you just need a good heart warming story.
I skipped a few stories and went to Iceworm by Cherime MaFarlane. Ida’s mom gave her the nickname Iceworm, though insulted by the name little Ida lived up to it. Sneaking out to go to her cabin, she was determined to never leave the land in Alaska, so she must have a place of her own and be self-sufficient. She found some old papers and a bell while she was working on the cabin. Little did she know she had a connection to the story told in the papers written many years before. I loved this story, it was so endearing to see Ida plan her future as a little girl while finding herself drawn to the past.
A Bell of Valor by Holly Barbo was an intriguing story and my favorite so far. Dr. Mari Crannach was offered a job that she couldn’t refuse. Alford Golf Club is scheduled for a grand expansion, and in the process of digging up the ground they unearthed a mummy, a bogman. Her job will be to find the story behind the bogman in a few weeks, and keep is quiet till the story can be told. I found myself so invested as she uncovered pieces of the past, one step at a time but it didn’t go as smoothly as she had hope. Risks, threats and danger didn’t stop her, but could she find the answers in time?
I am going to continue reading the rest of the stories over the holidays, but I think you can see you are going to get a wide variety of genres in this book.
I really enjoyed Christmas Lights, it's a wonderful story about coming to terms with your past and hoping for the future.
I loved how I could lose myself in this story, even if it was a short one.
Having to overcome a scary and difficult part of your past is so powerful, even though, most of the times, the ones who do it don't think they are. Reading about characters succeeding like this really warms up my heart and soul.
