Reviews of Waiter, There's a Clue in My Soup! Five Short Mysteries by Camille LaGuire

Kevin A. Lyons reviewed on Feb. 12, 2016

A good collection of short mysteries with unusual settings (such as the Wild West) and approaches ("how dunnit" and "why dunnit" as opposed to just "who dunnit").

They also neatly fit my need for short pieces to read while sitting in waiting rooms for doctors, dentists, mechanics, etc.

The title story is definitely the best of the bunch in this collection of short stories and sample chapters of another book of the author's. It was cute, BUT from the title, I was envisioning a little more of the cozy mystery sleuth-type genre. Not a bad little short story collection, but not what I was expecting.

The other stories are well-done and edited. I read the sample chapters as well and I might look into the book, but it's not really my cup of usual tea, but I did add it to my list to think about! I like short stories, but sometimes I feel like I'm just getting into the author's rhythm when the story ends so I'm willing to give her work another shot for sure.

This is recommended for people that like light Westerns, I think, with a little bit of humor on top.
