I got this ARC book from the author. These stories were short and something. Not sure about the sweet part. The first one did nothing for me and they went downhill from there. The narrator was very good and that is the best that came from this experience. I try to give honest reviews and leave the harshness from them.

Mainstream, non-literary short stories just for enjoyment don't seem to have a home in any magazines anymore. The mystery and science fiction genre mags thankfully manage to survive. But to publish straight-ahead fiction, you need short story collections in an anthology or a single author collection.
These stories are in the vein of O. Henry and other classic short story writers, with interesting ideas fleshed out with easy-to-grasp characters. Plot twists and ironic endings give an extra edge to the reading experience.
There is a thematic thread of heinous crime intersecting with unremarkable ordinary lives, and it packs quite a punch.
Short and sweet as the title says, it leaves you wanting more from this skillful crafter of tales.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
