About The Book:
The award-winning master of psychological suspense is in top form in this collection of diverse and diabolically clever stories. In the never-before-published "Just One More," a married couple--longing for that old romantic spark--creates a playful diversion that comes with unexpected consequences. Lippman's beloved Baltimore PI Tess Monaghan keeps a watchful eye on a criminally resourceful single father in "Seasonal Work," while her mother, Judith, realizes that the life of "The Everyday Housewife" is an excellent cover for all kinds of secrets. In "Slow Burner," a husband's secret cell phone proves to be a dicey temptation for a suspicious wife. A father's hidden past piques the curiosity of a young snoop in "The Last of Sheila-Locke Holmes." Plus seven other brilliantly crafted stories of deception, murder, dangerous games, and love gone wrong--irrefutable evidence that Laura Lippman's riveting fiction will more than satisfy any crime reader.

My Review:
Guess who just found her new favourite short story collection!? Meeeee! I loved these stories, every single one was near perfect. They were all suspenseful, had amazing endings and featured strong, willful minded women. I loved how each one of them stood up for themselves in the most unique ways. It was really hard to pick a favourite but at the end of the day it has to go to the titular story Seasonal Work. Once I read that one there was no putting the book down. To be honest I could have read a full novel about that one alone.

Laura Lippman has always been a favourite author of mine and with these tales she just proven herself to be worthy of that even more. She has written a selection of stories that will suck you in and won't let you go. The stories and the writing flow seamlessly while reading and at times it feels like you are on a journey with these characters. As always I got such a kick reading about Tess Monaghan again. If you are a fan of Ms. Lippman these will exceed your expectations, if you are new to her you will become a one. All. The. Stars.

With many thanks to NetGalley, Laura Lippman and William Morrow and Custom House for the giving of the ARC.
