*I am one of the authors in this anthology.

This is a short, easy read. I especially enjoyed (other than my own story) “Starry Sea” by L. F. S Alden, Books Sonnet by Olivia Jakobitz, Last Night by Elijah David, and “Keep it Safe” by Cheryl Cardoza.

I don’t read books in this genre on a regular basis.
I enjoyed the “girl-power” aspect. They weren’t getting promoted as cops/ detectives so they start their own private firm.
There are some good twists. I love the puns and humor.



Book Read: The Dark of Deep Below (The Adventures of the Princess and Mr. Whiffle #2)
by Patrick Rothfuss
Pages Read: 159

Exactly what having a younger sibling is like! Ha ha.
Ending one is just so… oh my, as George Takei would say. Those of us with a dark humor streak will want to run right out and read this to the younger sibling. Evil. Grounding! Okay, it’d be a bad idea.
But it’s okay, it goes back to where you figured. And then, page 76, … well, you really should read the first book before reading this second book. Otherwise you’ll miss the hilarious moment, or at least not understand it as well as you might have.
Suspense! Heart pounding suspense! By the second ending I was deeply grateful that the book still had more pages. Talk about a cliffhanger.
I LOVED the next part. If I wasn’t already shipping this author, I assure you, I’d have signed up for the fandom right then and there.
The final pages give a serious case of the “awws.”
A fantastic book. Difficult to get a copy, but completely worth the effort.
