"Night at the Fiestas"

my take: I don't always love/like short stories. They're so ... brief? Just as I get emotionally attached to characters ... poof! They're gone. It's a bit of work to start over and over with new situations and characters. Hmmm. The lazy reader.

AND these short stories were just about right - a great blend of character development, plot, and twist. Most are set in the American Southwest and feature females in somewhat precarious situations.

I heard the author speak at a session at The Festival of Faith and Writing and came to realize several of the stories have autobiographical tidbits.

my verdict: Great short stories - well worth a read.
