Quickie Review: Big Foot Stole My Wife and Other Stories by Joan Hess

Big Foot Stole My Wife and Other StoriesBig Foot Stole My Wife and Other Stories by Joan Hess
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Big Foot Stole My Wife and Other Stories by Joan Hess is a collection of mostly rather dark mysteries. Honestly, I didn't like most of them. I did enjoy the 2 Claire Malloy mysteries and the 2 Arly Hanks mysteries, though.

Many of the mysteries had a slow pace. And in some of them, the characters weren't even likable. If not for the Claire Malloy mysteries and Arly Hanks mysteries, I would have given the book a 2 out of 5 stars. Generally speaking, Joan Hess's writing is good, but these stories just didn't click for me. This collection was first published in 2003. This is a re-release issued in July of 2016.

I give this book 3 out of 5 stars. If you describe a collection of short stories as hit and miss, most of these were misses for me. If you like your short stories a little slow, dark, and weird, then check this collection out.

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
