Sam's StorySam’s Story by Mary Elizabeth Summer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This short story mystery is the perfect read for anyone wondering if they’d enjoy this author; as well as for those of us who already adore her. It’s interesting, engaging, and hard to put down. I plowed through these wonderful words in under an hour. The con artist doesn’t really want the job. The mark is a sympathetic character written in a well-rounded way. There’s a beautiful twist at the end. The story even comes with a mini love triangle. And, once again, Summer has proven that vocabulary mastery does not detract from engagement in a story.

  1. Sam’s Story sounds like a good read. I’ve been looking for interesting short stories to read, preferably in the mystery/suspense/thriller genres and you’ve convinced me that Mary Elizabeth Summer writes what I enjoy reading. I’ve never really read many short stories and figured it was time to start. Thanks for the recommendation. I see you are on the ball with your goals, TBR List and this bloghop.
