"I was curious to see how Lauren Carr would do with a short story, she does so well with full length novels. It was no surprise that I loved them…ALL. Long or short, she can spin a tale that keeps you spellbound. " Review by Sherry Fundin, fundinmental
" I enjoyed reading ICE, the first book in Lauren Carr's new Chris Matheson Cold Case Mystery series. So I was eager to read this novella that also includes some short stories. What a treat this book was! All the stories were a great way to revisit favorite characters and remember why I liked them so much. The Chris Matheson novella was a quick read and now I'm looking forward to the next installment in this series. " Review by Laura Fabiani, Library of Clean Reads

In today’s hectic world, many whodunit fans don’t have time to get their mystery fix diving into a whole novel. Lauren Carr’s SPRING THAW AND OTHER MYSTERY SHORT STORIES is for these fans—but that doesn’t mean whodunit fans who do have time can’t dive in as well.

While the home invaders wait for instructions from a mysterious caller, Gnarly must plot to stop them. Can Gnarly save Christmas with only the help of an 8-pound Maltese dressed in an elf suit?
