Publisher's Summary

Here are six more short stories of varied themes. Stories include:

"This Pose is a Problem" - Two out-of-towners visit New York City with the hopes of visiting the movie locations where some of their favorite movies were filmed. What could possibly go wrong?

"Mayberry State of Mind" - A man drives back to New York from Georgia but has to stop along the way to rest. Wait a minute, this town looks familiar. Isn't that Floyd's Barber Shop just up ahead?

"The Last Straw" - Bruce Templeton is stuck in his attic when his wife comes home with another man. Bruce can see and hear them through the air vent and what they're plotting is no one's idea of a picnic.

"Walk of Death" - Harold Barton is a troubled young man whose anger has reached its boiling point. Harold is also an avid gun collector just itching to try out some of his favorite weapons on his troublesome neighbors.

"None the Wiser" - It's a well-known fact that there are women out there who will use a man for whatever they can get from him, whether it's a diamond ring, fur coat, or in this case, a free meal. How's that working out for you?

"Early Bird Special" - Our couple is on their way to the casino not only to gamble away 40 dollars, but to take advantage of their Early Bird Special buffet, but only if they can get there on time before the prices change. What could go wrong with this scenario?

    "Short and What?"

    I got this ARC book from the author. These stories were short and something. Not sure about the sweet part. The first one did nothing for me and they went downhill from there. The narrator was very good and that is the best that came from this experience. I try to give honest reviews and leave the harshness from them.

    "Hard to find stories like this anymore..."

    Mainstream, non-literary short stories just for enjoyment don't seem to have a home in any magazines anymore. The mystery and science fiction genre mags thankfully manage to survive. But to publish straight-ahead fiction, you need short story collections in an anthology or a single author collection.
    These stories are in the vein of O. Henry and other classic short story writers, with interesting ideas fleshed out with easy-to-grasp characters. Plot twists and ironic endings give an extra edge to the reading experience.
    There is a thematic thread of heinous crime intersecting with unremarkable ordinary lives, and it packs quite a punch.
    Short and sweet as the title says, it leaves you wanting more from this skillful crafter of tales.
    I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

    Story
    "Too much for me"

    I received this book at no charge in exchange for honest review. I found some of these stories interesting but hard to enjoy as there was just to much death for me. The one that did me in was the shooter. That was just too graphic and when it came to the children that was it! Sorry just not my kind of book.
