Award-winning Canadian author Cathy Spencer lives in Ontario with her husband, an actor/teacher. She releases her novels through her own publishing company, Comely Press.
Cathy is the author of the Anna Nolan mystery series featuring an amateur sleuth who works as an administrative assistant for a fictitious university. Book One, Framed for Murder, was the winner of the 2014 Bony Blithe Mystery Award. In it, Anna discovers the body of her ex-husband while out for a walk one evening and quickly becomes the focus of his murder investigation. Book Two in the series, Town Haunts, is set at Halloween. Cemetery custodian Sherman Mason asks for help from Anna and her friends when he hears his dead wife calling to him from beyond the grave. In the third book, Tidings of Murder and Woe, Anna is looking forward to a happy Christmas when her new friend, the CEO of a big oil company, starts receiving anonymous death threats.
Cathy has also written two romances. The Affairs of Harriet Walters, Spinster, is a sweet regency about a spinster whose life is turned upside when she is sent to live with a persnickety aunt after her father's death. The Dating Do-Over is a contemporary romantic comedy about a thirtyish school teacher with a sympathetic heart and lousy taste in men.
Cathy is also the author of 2 short story collections, Tall Tales Twin-Pack, Mysteries, and Tall Tales Twin-Pack, Science Fiction & Fantasy.

This little book contains two different kinds of short mystery stories. The first one is taking place in good old England whereas the second one is from Canada. The British mystery is peppered with all the clichés everyone is looking for and also it's very clear how the story will proceed, it's never boring or a poor copy. It is perfectly written and can hold on with famous British mystery writers. The Canadian one is more an up-to-date mystery. I was always guessing in which direction it will turn out and the outcome was really surprising.
I enjoyed the reading very much.

This twin pack of short story mysteries are well written. "The House on Cliffside" was written like a "cozy mystery". I have to say that the ending was not a surprise to me, but was still fun to read. "In the Playground", on the other hand, was more suspenseful and had an unpredictable ending. I enjoyed both stories. I received a copy of the book by the author which did not influence my review.
