In My Mailbox (108)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. I've included links to Goodreads if you want more information on the books.

For Review:
I've worked with Untreed Reads before and have always enjoyed their books, so couldn't pass up a chance to read an anthology based on the old Grimm fairy tales! Love fairy tale mashups, and this looks like a winner!

edited by John Kenyon

GRIMM TALES is a collection of stories by some of the top names in online crime fiction, all based on classic fairy tales. As novelist Ken Bruen writes in his introduction, "Ever imagined what would have come down the dark pike if The Brothers Grimm were more Brothers Coen and wrote mystery?"

***
Really enjoy short stories (if they're done well) and Untreed Reads knows how to do them right! This one sounded too intriguing to pass up!

Supreme Reflections by Joe Pfeffer

A young writer travels to Mexico for inspiration, where he meets an elderly American couple with a colorful history. He has no idea how colorful until the wife excuses herself and her husband tells the writer a shocking secret about his wife. But is it true? Supreme Reflections is a short story of how people replace the real world with fantasy, then spend their lives trying to make their fantasies real.


Purchased:
I love the Eve Dallas series and read them almost as soon as they come out! Downloaded this one at lunch one day and have already finished it! Another great Dallas/Roarke story!

by J.D. Robb

Lieutenant Eve Dallas is no party girl, but she’s managing to have a reasonably good time at the celebrity-packed bash celebrating The Icove Agenda, a film based on one of her famous cases. It’s a little spooky seeing the actress playing her, who looks almost like her long-lost twin. Not as unsettling, though, as seeing the actress who plays Peabody - drowned in the lap pool on the roof of the director’s luxury building.

    1. This is one of the few series I still love, as most of them get into a rut or just peter out. Here's hoping there's a lot more Roarke to come! ;)
