Publisher's Summary

A collection of three short mystery stories by Amazon international best-selling author Judy Penz Sheluk.

Death and deception: Appearances are often deceiving and that is the underlying premise in this collection of short crime fiction. 

In "Live Free or Die" naive 21-year-old Emmy falls hard for 31-year-old Jack, an efficiency expert from New Hampshire who is not all what he seems. 

In "Murder in the Marsh" cyclist Carrie Anne Camack discovers more than she bargained for in the fertile farmlands of Ontario's Holland Marsh. 

In the final story, "The Cycopaths", a triathlon team's open-water swim training in Collingwood, Ontario, has deadly consequences.

A great set of short mysteries

An excellent collection of short mysteries that are well written. All three stories are very entertaining and keep you guessing. I loved it! I received a review copy at my request and voluntarily reviewed.

Loved it!

I just needed a quick listen while I finished off some housework. I initially chose this because of its length. I'm so glad I did.

These three short stories had an air of mystery and mystique. They were really well-written and well-narrated with the requisite head-scratch at the end. Loved it.

Earns 5/5 Triple Scoops of Mystery!

Judy Penz Sheluk has penned three delightful short mysteries that provide entertaining twists and turns on murder. All three stories are written from the first-person perspective, her characters innocent bystanders often with theories that might not be enough to serve up justice. The descriptions give a visual picture of the Canadian landscape, and along with realistic dialogue the three stories are engaging.

Kate Tyler is the narrator of the recently released audio version. She enriches the stories with her voice artistry portraying well the emotions and personality. She goes beyond the traditional read aloud by changing her tone and pitch for male and female characters. Not many accents to portray…it's Canada. (Giggle)

“Live Free or Die”
This was my favorite with our heroine Emerald, preferring Emmy, being taken in by Jack, the handsome blue-eyed efficiency expert brought in to the company to make them more…efficient. However, after a delightful lunch, they strike up a relationship. He asks her to keep their relationship a secret sparing her from the gossips and HR scrutiny, but it turns out it may be to cover up evidence of his womanizing ways. She is shocked to find the truth about his “single” status, and his fiancé Jill (yes, Jack and Jill) devises a plan of action to force him to mend his ways. Plan A isn’t realistic since it might earn them 25 to life, but Plan B is quite creative. “Live Free or Die” earns 5/5 Bites of Karma!

“Murder in the Marsh”
Carrie Ann Camack has decided to join boyfriend Jasper in a triathlon, but her skill with the clipless pedals requires more practical application. He suggests she head out to Holland Marsh where the flat farm land will be perfect for her needs. However, an off-road crash into crates of carrots reveals more than carrots have been harvested. A dead bank has been foreclosed on. “Murder in the Marsh” earns 5/5 Crates of Karma’s Carrots!

“The Cycopaths”
What could possibly happen when you get a bunch of Type A personalities together in the freezing water? Not much, but…murder? A group of woman, dubbed the Cycopaths, are training for the opening triathlon of the season by practicing their open water swim, but Cordelia ‘Sunny” Lemay, the Miss Congeniality of the group, ends up dead. Lots of suspects due to proximity, but motive? “The Cycopaths” earns 5/5 Green Bathing Caps!
