Surf's Up anthology by Janelle Denison, MaryJanice Davidson and Nina Bangs

I liked this anthology. It was a nice combination of stories. A contemp and two paranormals (ghost and vamp). The first story was a very good contemp, nice story though predictable. The second story was nice in its not often used storyline of the heroine is a ghost. I liked that idea and it was a great story. Though I think you need to have read Men at Work anthology to truly appreciate the story. The third story is a Sparkle stardust story. Since I have not yet read all the books in this series I am holding off on reading it until later. I did skim it though and it looked good, so I will only give characters for the summary so I know for later reference.

Hey Kris I just finished this book too. I liked Janelle's story but felt a bit disappointed by the other two. I won't give anything away, but I just couldn't connect with them. Oh well, I guess not every story is a winner. And maybe it's cuz it's harder to remember details from a previous novella since it's a much shorter story, and I have the attention span of a gnat. LOL.
