If you're looking for some very entertaining yet short reads covering a wide variety of writing styles and genres, look no further. Murder They Wrote is for you!
I was familiar with some of the authors while others were new to me.
Two of my favorite stories are Within the Plum Attic by Kathleen Palm and A Winter Reckoning by Mae Clair. If you’ve read books by Judi Lynn and C S Boyack, you’ll recognize familiar characters in their contributions.
Four stars for this one!
I was hesitant to read the literary story because I thought I’d have to work too hard to figure it out, or that it’d feel too stuffy, but “Swallowtail” ended up being my favorite! It’s long enough to be meaty and have a lot of character development, and it’s enjoyable enough that I went back to re-read parts to see what clues I had missed.
The anthology isn’t perfectly edited, but the few typos didn’t take away from my reading enjoyment. And no, I didn’t love every story because I’m not equally a fan of all the genres, but there are no bad stories, and I could appreciate each of the mysteries.
Overall, it’s a fun (and sometimes funny) group of stories and a worthwhile read for mystery fans.
Story length ranged from short story to novella, and together made a full-length book. I was impressed with the quality across the board. No weak links in this group. Well-constructed plots, three-dimensional characters, and expertly edited. Highly recommended.
The answers are as varied as the authors themselves.
This anthology has something for everyone. There’s an author known for speculative fiction, an author who writes cozies and urban fantasy. One who loves horror, and one who loves cryptids. Literary, legal, regency… The list is truly varied. Some of these authors stuck to their areas of comfort, others branched out. All delivered.
It’s hard to pick a favorite, as they each offered something appealing. Of special note to me would be:
* Mae Clair (A Winter Reckoning) who always delivers a clean and creative story
* C.S. Boyack (From the Files of Jason Fogg) and Judi Lynn (The Body in the Kitchen) who give us more of characters readers already love
* Kathleen Palm (Within the Plum Attic) who played with two favorite themes of mine: twins and ghosts
I read this anthology in one evening. (It’s not an hour-long read; it does take some time. But the stories are easy to consume.) With Halloween right around the corner, this is a great choice to start easing us into the season. Nothing too macabre, but it definitely sets the mood. Hard to pass it up.
