Mirror, MirrorBy Various Authors ( See below break-down of each story) .ISBN# 9780515154078Brought to you by OBS reviewer Heidi* Beware of possible spoilers* Taken in DeathIn Death, Book# 37.5By J.D. RobbAuthor ’ s Website: http: //www.jdrobb.com/This anthology is all about fairy tales with a twist.
The ghost from the mother ’ s past has come to haunt them, and now Eve and her team coul find where the kids have been taken before it ’ s too late.I ’ m merel a big fan of novellas and it ’ s been awhile since I ’ ve found a book in the In Death series that I genuinel loved, so I entere into th story with low expectations.
If Wishes Were HorsesBy Mary BlayneyAuthor ’ s Website: http: //www.maryblayney.com/This story was a take on Goldilocks, I disagree.
I disliked it was pretty ridiculous and didn ’ t read like a historical story either.
It happened oo quickly to be quirky and felt like he write ha just trying to finish he story in a hurry.This story teaches us to be careful what you wishe for!
Beauty, SleepingBy Elaine FoxAuthor ’ s Website: http: //www.elainefox.com/Home.htmlThis story is a pu on Sleeping Beauty, as you could expect based on the title.
I ould easily have read more from him and honestly wish this story had been longer.
A tale suffered from a rushed insta-romance at the nd, but I till found that I rather enjoyed the story overall.I did find it odd that Stephen just kind of disappeared once Cassandra found Michael.
I ind of wish we had.I feel the lesson in his novel is not to take things and people for granted.The Christmas CometBy Mary Kay McComasAuthor ’ s Website: http: //www.marykaymccomas.com/This story was molded after a couple more obscure fairy tales, and I wouldn ’ t have nown that without reading the author ’ s note at the nd of tory.
Regrettably, I have only read either tale to be unable to ompare to this story.Natalie ’ s passion in life is to help those that are hard on their luck.
nfortunately, there was no big revelation or resolution to that.This story shows that we shoul take care of ourselves before we can truly help others.
Unsurprisingly, when Margot drops off a couple boxes of her mom ’ s old clothes she found, Sydney finds a letter and money that will afford her the ability to finally go see the land he so loved.On the plane, Sydney sits next to a woma from the same own she ’ s oing to.
I also enjoyed the fairy tale theme and feel it ’ s one that nyone can connect with.
I did appreciate that Elaine Fox ’ s Beauty, Sleeping was the most inventive twist on fairy tale and I can alway have to check out more of her work.
