    " I only ready Jeaniene Frost's Cat & Bones story. As always, I love those two in any story, AND Justina's in it and I didn't want to kill her! :D This story takes place after Destined for an Early Grave (Book 4). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sonia | 2/11/2014

    " This is a collection of short stories by different authors. I really enjoyed "Two Blondes" by Charlaine Harris and "One for the Money" by Jeaniene Frost. This was a fun and quick way to be exposed to large number of new authors. The other short story I really enjoyed was "Pirate Dave's Haunted Amusement by Toni Kelner. I liked having a vampire end up with a werewolf. Everyone deserves to find love, but hey that is just the romantic in me talking. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lizzie | 1/18/2014

    " This rating is for the Sookie story only. I didn't bother listening to the rest of the stories when I heard a fobby accent being used by one of the narrators. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susie | 12/3/2013

    " I was really disappointed because I thought is was filled with only Sookie stories and there was only one, but the one that was in there was awesome. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maggie | 11/24/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mikelyn | 6/26/2013

    " While I enjoyed the stories in this collection, the readers were a little distracting. It wasn't enough to ruin it, but it was enough that I would recommend reading the book instead if you have the time. "

    " Some good stuff. Hardly any soft-core vampire porn, for which I am grateful. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mrs.Mason | 8/27/2012

    " Some interesting stories - most of which seem minor continuations of larger series - in which case I'm intrigued in some cases and dubious in others. The Charlaine Harris story was actually fairly weak all things considered while some of the others were very good. "

    s was okay. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vickiek | 5/4/2011

    " I was disappointed with this book. I think that some of the stories were VERY good, but there were definitely more bad then good. The good stories were amazing but the bad ones were just horribly cliche and had flat story lines as well as one dimensional characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 4/29/2011

    " A strong collectionof short stories. If I were able to rate some of these stories individually, they'd get five stars. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lynzylee | 4/26/2011

    " This one starts out with a Sookie/Pam story...we shall see...sad to say I really lost interest after the Sookie story. I looked through all of them and none really held my interest. "
