Synopsis

The first short story collection in the #1 New York Times bestselling series-including a brand-new Harry Dresden novella!
Here, together for the first time, are the shorter works of #1 New York Times bestselling author Jim Butcher-a compendium of cases that Harry and his cadre of allies managed to close in record time. The tales range from the deadly serious to the absurdly hilarious. Also included is a new, never-before-published novella that takes place after the cliff-hanger ending of the new April 2010 hardcover, Changes. This is a must-have collection for every devoted Harry Dresden fan as well as a perfect introduction for readers ready to meet Chicago’s only professional wizard.

My Review:

I would highly recommend that one have read all of the books in this series before taking this one on.  I love the wit and humor in the Dresden Files and this book continues though it while filling in some of the blanks that I had while reading thought them.  Butcher does a nice job of explaining each short story, as well as, where it falls in the series.  I was pleased to see stories from Thomas, Dresden’s brother, and Murphy, cop he works with and has always had feeling for.  I enjoyed seeing the different styles that Butcher can write from outside of what I have seen him write in the past.  I was a little disappointed when this came out as the next book in the series because it felt like it was just a filler book and that the series might die off but after reading Aftermath I think there will be more to come for Harry Dresden.  It really does not give us any idea what is too come but leaves the door wide open for more.  4.5 stars for this book – mostly due to the fact that it is a collection rather than a continuation of the story.

Synopsis

When Candice’s in-laws died in a car accident eight months ago, she lost her husband Ian too. After only two years of marriage their guilt and pain have left them living together but apart. During Ian’s month-long trip overseas, Candice plans to decide if her marriage can be saved, but when the first man she ever loved is the new client at work, she wonders what she truly wants from life and love.

My Review:

As a 30 something married woman, I felt very connected to Candice and her situation.  After the death of her in-laws die in a car crash at Christmas while they are out getting her Christmas gift, her life and relationship with her husband completely change and she begins to question what she wants.  She has a cancer scare and opts not to tell her husband about it as he is leaving for an overseas trip for a month.  She is an assistant to an interior designer and she feels pretty content in her work, until her boss asks for her assistance on an upcoming job, the client happens to be her ex-boyfriend that broke her heart.  There seems to be heat between them from the beginning but she decides she must work though it.

This book explores Candice coming into herself and learning about herself and what she wants out of life.  She is faced with the biggest decision does she stay with her husband even though he has told her that he blames her for his parents death or does she risk everything and return to her ex, Keagan.  You will have to read to find out. 

I am very impressed with Heather Wardell’s writing style.  Everything about this book could truly happen in real life and that is what I loved about it.  I am going to be checking out more of her books.  5/5 stars for this book.
