I really enjoy Jan Burke’s writing, have been reading her Irene Kelly series since the get-go. This little collection is different; she writes with a variety of disparate, yet entirely authentic voices and also experiments with different settings than the usual. And all of it is really good.
In fact, the only reason star number five is missing is because a hundred pages isn’t a whole book, as far as I am concerned, it’s part of a book, or maybe a large pamphlet. I felt I was just getting warmed up, ready to go on to the next story, and..oh. It’s over. I guess that’s it.
I am grateful to Net Galley for the free read, but I would not pay cover price for 100 pages, not even for Burke.
It is good to see Ms. Burke back in action. Her work is always skillful and holds my interest till the dead last word on the very last page.
