These stories appear in the short story collection, What Leads A Man To Murder.
A classic mystery in Agatha Christie style. A story of kidnapping gone wrong…or maybe right. A tale of superstition and treasure, tempered by a dead cat. Prize-winning author, Joslyn Chase, delivers on three delightful stories.
The Sodden Spectators
Mystery novelist Cathryn Harcourt never met a mystery she couldn’t solve…in the pages of her own books.
Faced with a real-life puzzle on which hangs the happiness of two young lovers, can she find a solution before they’re forced apart?
And when the stakes rise higher than anyone imagined, can she outsmart a wily, unsuspected murderer?
Join Cathryn as she travels from Kentucky to Brazil on the tracks of a clever killer.
A Simple Glass of Water
Who knew a simple glass of water could hold so much?
And that it could change from half empty to half full in the course of a day.
It carried the seeds of Ruben’s destruction, turned his world upside down, and drowned him in despair.
Might it also offer the key to his salvation?
Blessings and Curses on a Calico Cat
If curiosity killed the cat, it sat behind the wheel of a white Chrysler LeBaron the day Mrs. Friskers died.
A young woman, raised on a diet of superstition, struggles to chop away the apron strings and
prove her worth to a persnickety, white-gloved mama, and the loss of her mouse-killing cat makes the battle twice as hard.
And twice as lonely.
A humorous and heart-warming story of a young woman learning to stand on her own.
