My favourite story was Mary Janice Davidson's "The Incredible Adventures of Boo and the Boy Blunder" - it was really funny.
Also good was Maggie Shayne's "The Bride Wore a .44" - straightforward action/espionage stuff, very well paced and kept the excitement going. ( )

Worth reading for the Angela Knight story, Warfem. ( )

***** The Bride Wore a .44 by Maggie Shayne. It's an amnesia story, reminiscent of that movie with Gena Davis (hmmm. must look for that one on DVD and ask for it for Christmas).
****½ The Incredible Adventures of Boo and the Boy Blunder by MaryJanice Davidson. Albino vampire slayer gets a geeky sidekick and meets a vampire stand-up comedian. I think this is my favorite of MJD's novellas, even though we don't actually see Betsy.
***** Warfem by Angela Knight. I've been looking forward to this one, and I wasn't disappointed. It's a secret baby story, but the plot reminded me a bit of something.... argh. Must.... resist... spoilers....
**** Painkillers by Jacey Ford. I've been looking forward to this one, too. I think Jacey Ford does better with full-length books. This was still pretty good, and there was a really funny epilogue, but it had that sex while they're hiding out from the bad guys thing that bugged me. The heroine was a supermodel and CIA agent, complete with her own secret agent handbook. The weakest story in the anthology, and it's still very good. ( )
