"""The crimes featured in The Best Laid Plans range from poisonings to bank robberies to contract killings, and the settings are both varied and fascinating: ski resorts, nursing homes, subway stations, the mountains of West Virginia, the plains of Oklahoma. I loved this book!"" -- John M. Floyd, Edgar nominee and three-time Derringer Award winner ""An an entertaining collection of tales that deliver in all aspects. Much like buying a lottery ticket, these characters are dreaming up ways to permanently solve problems.""--Kevin Tipple, Kevin's Corner ""Sometimes the best laid plans just don't go quite as expected. And sometimes, they go exactly as hoped for. A dazzling collection of twenty-one short tales of mayhem, leaving both the reader and the corpses breathless. A five-star read that you will never forget.""--Kate Thornton, Derringer-nominated short story author ""Even the best laid plans can go awry, and with these well-thought out mysteries and 'I didn't see that coming!' short stories, you get to enjoy it twenty-one times. Different styles, different settings, different murderous intentions, but all are entertaining, intriguing, and just plain fun.""--Kathleen Costa, Kings River Life Magazine ""Delicious! That word best describes the yummy bites of well written, crafty crime stories. Murder for hire, money, sibling rivalry, envy, infidelity. Murder of the wrong person. Killer acting and get-rich schemes...the clever twists are endless. A feast of delicious short bites that adds up to a very satisfying literary meal.""--Catherine Astolfo, bestselling author and two-time winner of the Arthur Ellis Award for Best Crime Short Story"
