How does a dead body and a killer just disappear off a floating ferry in the middle of the water and no one see them? Well, it's Eve Dallas' job to find out. ( )

Very much enjoyed the JD Robb story, and the Ruth Ryan Langan one was sexy and romantic. But the others? No dice. The dog days one couldn't reconcile the fantasy with the reality for me at all, and Lost in Paradise was overflowing with Christianity. I don't know if I can recommend this given the varying story quality between the four stories. The two I enjoyed I'd give 4/5, but the others are 1-2/5, which is just not good enough. ( )

Haven't read a collection like this that I recall. Did enjoy all the stories, though none got "deep" enough for me. Tough to do in a story this long. Found the Dog Days of Laurie Summer by Patricia Gaffney to be the best in the book - a really good read, and one that I wouldn't have picked up just by reading the description. It was a well-written story, with characters that I could identify with and a premise that was intriguing (coma patient's awareness moves into a dog adopted by her family). I enjoyed it so much, I plan to look the author up and see what else she has written. The weakest link was Mary Blayney - it was an OK story, but was not nearly as polished as the others. If you enjoy stories with a touch of romance (without it being overpowering), this selection is a nice read and I recommend it. ( )

This was a good collection of stories. I started it for the In Death, but ended up enjoying all 4 novellas. ( )

Typical Eve-Roarke. If you are reading this short, you are committed to the series. Good, bad, or in-between. ( )
