Dancers In The Dark - Charlaine Harris (3 stars)
/
Interesting story and characters made this an enjoyable and quick read. I liked that friendship played an equally important role to romance and that the heroine grew so much in that regard. Good pacing and detail for a novella.

Her Best Enemy - Maggie Shayne (3.5 stars)

This was kinda spooky for me, but absorbing. I liked both characters, and particularly the twist with Jack not knowing his own abilities. Standard disclaimer about emotional depth in a novella applies, but this is really more of a ghost story with a romance, rather than the other way around.

Someone Else's Shadow - Barbara Hambly (3 stars)

An intrigueing story. This isn't usually my preferred genre, but Hambly kept me hooked. For a novella, the background and characters were surprisingly full. There were also some thought-provoking statements about love and living, without coming across as forced or preachy. I might have to see if she has any non-horror stories.

One of Harris' better short stories. The main character put me in mind of Lily Bard; tough and damaged, which I was glad for, as I miss the continuation of that series. The second story amused me. (SPOILER WARNING) It was the standard enemies realize they don't hate each other, solve a crime and get happy bonus prizes at the end, but with one rather funny scene where halfway through sex, they stop, pull back, and go deal with a more pressing issue. Considering the circumstances at the time, it's an appropriate, but entirely uncommon reaction, and it made me giggle. The third story doesn't read like a Harlequin, at least in the set up. It's tense, and tight, overshadowed with darkness, mystery and an unusual character set up. Another surprising thing is the fact that the two characters pegged to be love interests are BOTH hand-to-mouth, struggling working artists, which isn't a usual thing in a romance. The last story also manages to be genuinely creepy. All three stories are about women with scary things in their past, and men who help them move on. The first and third are about dancers, the second and third are about ghosts and sadists. The stories compliment each other nicely, but are all very different.
