Entrée to Murder: 4*
I adored Big Mac. Clever twist on the mystery which was already keeping me guessing. Hated Drew's best friend. Loved the elderly couple. Did I say I adored Mac?

Twelve Seconds: 3.5* Another solid entry in the anthology. Not sure about the logistics of a cop giving info to a reporter he's only just met but I liked both guys, thought they were a good match and the mystery was interesting and not something I'd heard of before. Appreciated older MCs.

Reality Bites: 3.5* Decker was an unreliable narrator, down on himself in everything from his age to his wage to his taste in food and wine. He certainly didn't think he was good enough for a tv producer with a big house and mega bucks and because it was only in his pov it was hard to know what Jax really saw in him. But that's part of what I liked about this story, Decker's insecurities, his reluctance to get involved, his denial he wanted more. The mystery was good too.

Blind Man's Buff: 3* Struggled to get into this one at first, but once it hit its stride I was hooked. The romance is very low key.

A Country for Old Men: 5* Beautiful, lyrical, heartbreaking. I sobbed ugly tears during this one. Mystery was good too.

Pepper the Crime Lab: 4* This was fun. Relationship style reminded me very much of Kit and JX. I kinda pegged the killer from the first meeting but the story was lots of fun.

Lights, Camera, Murder: 4.5* This is first CSPoe I've read. I'll definitely be picking up more. Really enjoyed this.

Stranger in the House: 4.5* Yeah. Great writing, interesting plot. I could have done with a scene or two more to fully commit to the romance but I think they'll make it :) And I like both of the MCs. I'd love a catch up at dinner point (Christmas coda?) ( )

Categories: Best Anthology

I expected much more from this anthology than I got. My star average for this book is 2.8 - a fairly low rating for me. But I do not regret reading it - I discovered some new authors I will definitely add to my shelf.

Entrée to Murder by Nicole Kimberling - ★★★★☆
Loved it. The mystery was decent, though I would have liked more of the romance.

Twelve Seconds by Meg Perry - ★★☆☆☆
This was an enjoyable read right up until a plot hole appeared near the end. MC1 is an investigator and MC2 is a journalist. The journalist was contacted by the victim right before the vic was killed, and that's how the two MCs meet. Throughout the investigation, the information about the victim's death was withheld from the public, even from the victim's wife (publicly he was presumed missing) and the journalist wasn't supposed to know about the victim's death at all, but the investigator told him when they first met. So, everyone thinks the victim's missing, except for the police and the murderer and the journalist. The murderer calls the journalist pretending he's the victim, trying to set up a meet, the journalist calls his boyfriend the investigator right away (smart) and... no one bats an eyelash? Not one question about how he knew to call the police at all? It was a stupid mistake, and so glaringly obvious I'm surprised it wasn't caught before the story got published. As it is, I'm lowering my rating to 2 stars.

Reality Bites by S.C. Wynne - ★★★☆☆
A decent mystery, and it didn't end as I feared it would based on the first couple of chapters, which is great. The romance part was lacking chemistry though - I couldn't feel it at all and it was kind of boring.

Blind Man's Buff by L.B. Gregg - ★☆☆☆☆
This was a slasher flick, not a mystery. The MC was funny at first but got annoying really fast, and I got the impression the writer doesn't like fat people - seeing how every one of the "good guys" was distinctly described as lean and/or fit, and the only bad guy was described as fat, and there was a running commentary on how he should just get a heart-attack and die. This kind of problematic writing is not a first for L.B. Gregg - I also remember a similar thing done to a trans character in one of her previous books, and it's why I don't think this was an honest mistake.

A Country for Old Men by Dal Maclean - ★★★★☆
This was my first Dal Maclean story and I enjoyed it even though I didn't like the MC whose POV it was written in - frankly, he was kind of exhausting. I'm tired enough of my own headspace to want to participate in anyone else's pity party. But the story itself and the writing were great.

Pepper the Crime Lab by Z.A. Maxfield - ★★★★☆
I really enjoyed this story. It had the right balance of serious and light-hearted. I haven't read Z.A. Maxfield in a loong while (I've been steering clear of her books - but it was not really a conscious decision), so it felt almost like it was my first time reading one of her books. I loved it.

Lights, Camera, Murder by C.S. Poe - ★★★☆☆
3.5 stars. Another new-for-me author, and I was not disappointed. I liked the story, but I feel like it wasn't fleshed out enough - like it wasn't meant to be a short story, but a longer story that was cut down to its bare bones to fit a page requirement. But even so I enjoyed it a lot. I will definitely move this author up on my tbr list.

Stranger in the House by Josh Lanyon - ★★☆☆☆
There was one main thing wrong with this story - it's called "Joel Leslie does French-Canadians speaking English". It was incomprehensible and irritating. It was Beauty & the Beast's Lumiere on steroids. It completely ruined the story for me. When he's not doing accents he's an okay narrator. When he tries any non-English accent, he needs a warning label.
Other than that little niggle (*snorts*), the story was okay but the mystery was kind of on a back burner in favor of endless descriptions of furniture, art pieces & other surroundings. ( )
