Publisher's Summary

He was deader than a dead duck up a dead end with a dead weight tied to his cold dead ankles. But his widow, sitting at his bedside, chafing his hand and talking softly to him, every so often bending over to kiss him, still didn’t seem quite ready to let him go. The doc caught the eye of the driver, hovering in the doorway with the body bag as his partner rolled the gurney along the hall.

'Kissin' don't last, cookin' do'

Nice little dark story only 7 minutes, 38 seconds long. I had never heard of author Catriona Mcpherson, but she does a great job.

The Story of an Hour

I became interested in this author after hearing her interviewed on NPR a few weeks ago. I was hoping Audible would be offering her new book (the one she was being interviewed about), Scot Free, a cozy mystery set in California. Unfortunately, Audible does not have Scot Free, nor any of the author’s other books, but DOES offer this tiny short story. It’s very short—only 7 minutes—so don’t spend a credit on it, but it’s worth a couple dollars because it’s so good. It’s O. Henryish in nature, but I had to play it for my husband, an English teacher, to find out why it felt so familiar. He reminded me that it’s reminiscent of that old (1890s) Kate Chopin short story, The Story of an Hour, in which....

But no spoilers here. Read it for yourself! You won’t be sorry. It’s only seven minutes long, but it’s unforgettable. The narrator is perfect, too!
