Uneven, as anthologies tend to be. Some very good short stories, and some clearly dashed off in a spare afternoon to meet the deadline. Best to read the book in one-story increments, because reading several in one sitting reinforces the underlying uniformity of plot. Slip it into briefcase or purse for those 5 to 10 minute dentist office waits or traffic gridlock.

CUTE STORIES...all short stories...not what I thought it would be...I like a begining to end book...but thats just me. The nice thing is that you get a taste of all these authors and see if you would like to try something else they wrote.
