A nice collection of 'spirited' romance shorts June 14 2012
By melindeeloo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I like these Mammoth books for the sheer number and variety of stories. From matchmakers from beyond the veil bringing lovers together, to loves that triumph over death, this collection had it all and included some really different stories by some old favorite authors for me to enjoy but also gave me a chance to see how well some new to me authors handle a romance in a small amount of pages. So when the last page was turned this ended up being a decent addition to the Mammoth Book of (fill in the blank) Romance series.

===================================
The Chinese Bed by Anna Campbell
===================================
A cursed bed and two sets of lovers - a bit odd, but I liked both of the heroes. (3 stars)

============================
Old Salt by Carolyn Crane
============================
The leader of a ghost tour gets a new appreciation for the ghost who has sought his lost 'love' for a hundred years - I liked the ghost and way that the pair help each other to become unstuck from their pasts. (3.5 stars)

======================================
Haints and Hobwebs by Jennifer Estep
======================================
A Gin Bianco short - A ghost is in desperate need of Gin's kind of justice, I liked it and was able to pick right back up on the series even though it's been way too long since I read the first Elemental Assassin book. (4 stars)

===========================
Hat Trick by Gwen Creedy
===========================
A great apartment comes with an affable ghost roomie - this was okay. (3 stars)

=============================================
Ghost of Blackstone Manor by Donna Fletcher
=============================================
A woman inheriting a haunted house seeks professional help from a sexy ghost buster - I like it, but the twist to the ending was odd. (3.5 stars)

====================================
Seventeen Copper by Jeannie Holmes
====================================
The only story in the collection that had more of a fantasy/scifi-ish setting, a thief takes a job to recover a 'lost' soul and finds herself in competition with a man from her past - I liked this one with the rougish friend and the little 'honorable' thief. (4 stars)

================================
Yours In Eternity by C T Adams
================================
An abandoned wife learns the truth about the man she's never stopped loving - I really enjoyed this story but I would have loved to have seen the lovers together a bit in the past. (4 stars)

============================
The Lovers by Julia London
============================
Inheriting a haunted estate brings two sets of lovers back together - this was okay. (3 stars)

=======================================================
A Single Girl's Guide to Getting Ahead by Liz Maverick
=======================================================
A mix up in her order for a scary spirit, does more than solve a woman's 'pest' problem - this was pretty good, and you gotta love a guy who can work his 'magic' by mere proximaty;) (3.5 stars)

========================================
Jonquils in the Snow by Annette Blair
========================================
This was another favorite, Blair managed to squeeze an incredible amount of story into this short romance between an Amish couple, a widower with a traumatized daughter and a widow who feels responsible for the accident that killed her child, husband, and twin sister. (4.5 stars)

================================
The Heart Thief by Cindy Miles
================================
This was one of my favorites, the romance between the photographer and the scottish pirate ghost was well done. (4.5 stars)

==========================================
Ghost in the Machine by Dru Pagliassotti
==========================================
In this steampunk offering, the plans for an improvement in automatons is the motive for murder - love finds a way to circumvent death, but it is in an odd way - this was okay. (3 stars)

========================================
Three Little Words by Christie Ridgway
========================================
A ghost plays matchmaker - it helped that the pair had a preexisting connection. (3.5 stars)

======================================
Ghost of a Chance by Caridad Pineiro
======================================
I enjoyed this one a lot too, the contestants vying to solve an eighty year old murder get some unexpected help. (4.5 stars)

=============================
In His Hands by Sara Reinke
=============================
"Can someone haunt you if they're not even dead" - I liked this story of a doctor who fights to save a woman from death - twice. (4 stars)

======================================
Can You Hear Me Now? by Sharon Shinn
======================================
A woman with one heck of a cell phone plan, gets a little dating help from beyond the grave - this is another short that didn't feel short, and I found both of the leads appealing. (4 stars)

===========================
The Storm by Linda Wisdom
===========================
Soul mates with a twist that made me buy the quick connection - I liked it. (4 stars)

============================
>>--4EVR--> by Holly Lisle
============================
A love to last 4EVR, I liked it even though pretty quickly I could see where it was going, but the characters and the flashbacks of their relationship made this story seem longer. (4 stars)

Love these mammoth books April 14 2014
By MOMMY B - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Perfect book for the car/purse/bathroom (ha-ha). Stories are only a few pages. Perfect for reading while filling up at the gas pump, waiting for a doctor appointment, or using the bathroom! Highly recommended!

ghostly yum Aug. 29 2014
By Lorna J. Dodge - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
These books are super, they have a group of stories that are long enough to enjoy, but, short enough to fill a doctors visit well. It was shipped here really fast.
