I really enjoyed this collection of short stories. Kellerman takes us on a tour of her imagination, while sharing with us many bits and pieces of her life. I’ve always loved her books. I love Jonathan Kellerman’s books as week, but truth be told, I favor his wife’s stories more.
This anthology gave me a chance to learn more of her life. I liked learning about her diminutive mother and her Dad, so clearly a part of the “greatest generation”. This book was the second of FK’s books that I finished this weekend and the funny thing is, despite her plots all involving horrible crimes and murder investigations, her books always leave me feeling happy.
Another fun thing about this book is that she shared stories co-written by her family. One involved a man named Jack, wandering the streets of Whitehall; another the story of a family beginning to fray at the edges after winning the lottery; and one I particularly liked was the cautionary tale of letting online relationships take the place of in-person relationships, neglecting to put energy and attention into our relationships with loved ones.
I hope that we’ll be able to have more books like this in the future, but not too soon. I love FK’s other series far too well to go long without them while she works on another collection of short stories!
