    Three VERY different stories in this book, all very different from each other, but at least it gave me a good idea of how this author writes The first was a vampire story, pretty good the second was about a ghost and it made me cry, but a good cry and, the third was to my liking the search for Noah s Ark I will definitely look for other of his books.

    liked all 3 of these short stories I finished the Samantha Moon series a while ago, and enjoyed it, so I wanted to check out the authors other 2character books I would read these other 2 as lighter reading then I am use to.l in all good stories to build upon.

    This was a great introduction to any reader who hasn t picked up this author yet Three novels from different series by him I m really into Samantha Moon I m looking forward to reading of her series She s smart, sassy and I want to see where things go with the werewolf Jim Knighthorse was a cocky PI who has witty comebacks and you love to hate him He keeps you on your toes with his intuition and great detective skills Then you have Spinoza He s that PI that will get on everyone s nerves, but you [...]

    3 1 2 stars for this one They were three nice little reads but I found them a bit meh to my tastes unfortunately There are three stories, from three different series I wouldn t go on to continue reading these series myself They just didn t peek my interest In saying that is you love detective stories, and can relate to these characters not doubt you will enjoy these stories and maybe the series they come from Great way to introduce new readers and maybe I will go back one day and visit these cha [...]

    The 1st and last story in this set of 3 include vampires Personally, I enjoyed Moon Dance the best and will definitely read the rest of that series Dark Horse was not as interesting to me no supernatural characters but still a fun read The main character in The Vampire with the Dragon Tattoo is unnecessarily violent and is not even the vampire which would have explained the violent tendencies Yet, this book is still intriguing and I ll have to try at least the 2nd in the series to see where it l [...]

    There was a story overlap from the last set so it was faster to finish this one I liked the main story well enough to finish it in one go and it s been the favourite so far but they still don t grab me but they are worth a read I haven t pushed one away unfinished.

    The first book with Samantha Moon was ok everything else was a waste of time.

    I liked this book, but for me I thought it started off kinda slow I was going to stop reading it but I am glad I decided to finish it I still think overall it was a good read.
