Recent Comments "Death Dines at 8:30"
Mostly competent but uninspired stories. My favorites are "Chocolate Moose" by Bill and Judy Crider, "The Fixer" by Camilla T. Crespi, and "Cold Turkey" by Diane Mott Davidson. I love the first sentence of "Cold Turkey":I did not expect to find Edith Blanton's body in my walk-in refrigerator.Well, after all, it really isn't something you would expect, is it?
great collection of mysteries
I really enjoyed this collection. A couple of the stories felt like they needed a bit more editing -- there was some wandering about in the plot, but over all it was a fun, easy to read collection. I loved the idea that 8:30 had to feature in each story, and it was really interesting to see how that was worked into each story.I read it straight through, but I really like collections like this for when you only have a bit of time to read. Each story took me about 15 minutes to read and that's gre [...]
"Death Dines at 8:30" is a short story anthology of culinary cozy mysteries. All stories contain a death, a meal and 8:30 (in most it's the time of death), and are followed by a recipe. A combination of well-known and lesser-known authors contributed to the anthology. A few of the 16 stories are interesting.
Short stories make an easy read - that's why I love anthologies. This was a pretty good collection, very few "misses" as far as quality (IMHO) and only one story that I'd say was a real streeeeetch from the theme. Some of the stories are within the authors' series of novels, and may not make complete sense if you aren't familiar with the background.
I enjoyed this collection of short stories all centered on a character dying or being killed at 8:30 while at dinner. It was interesting to see all the different takes on the same premise. Some of the included recipes even looked good, something I did not expect.
An anthology of short stories with the theme of murder during an 8:30 p.m. dinner. Sixteen authors of note have taken up this challenge and come out with some very good contributions and others not so good but I think that's true of all anthologies. None were awful. And that's not usual!
Short story culinary mysteries, with recipes included. One story written by Diane Mott Davidson.
This is a book of short mystery stories, all with accompanying recipes. Some of the stories are better than others.
This was a nice little anthology. Most of the stories were quite good, and some were quite imaginative.
Didn't realize this was a compendium of short stories
Good compilation of stories!
This anthology left a bad taste in my mouth, (pun intended). Not only were these stories not well written, they were not even interesting. I didn't really even like the recipes.
Interesting stories, interesting recipes.
Tried reading a couple of stories, couldn't get through them. Painful prose, mechanical dialog, not even the promise of solving the mystery could make me drag myself through to the end.
A collection of short mystery stories in which a person is murdered at 8:30 during a dinner. An uneven collection with some of the stories much better than others, but over all an enjoyable read.
Really enjoyed all of these stories.
Mediocre stories by some good authors. Follows the current fad of including recipes with each story - about a third of a slim volume is actually recipes.
