I was under the weather for a few days and these were perfect short stories to read as I rested. All the stories are well written. I would recommend reading the stories in order as they play off each other very well. I read the first story and thought 'that's my favourite' - but then the 2nd one became my favourite - and so on. This is a wonderful book for you to enjoy and it would also make a beautiful gift someone who enjoys reading. Highly recommend.
