Katherine Hall Page's tales will take readers from the skyscrapers of Manhattan to the dunes of Cape Cod and even "Across the Pond." Her characters include a man who longs for widowerhood, dreaming of the attention from the casserole brigade--good women lining up at his door offering food and perhaps themselves as well. A newlywed discovers her husband's ingenious hiding places for objects like spare keys. One spinster turns to friends for help with the supernatural. Another unmarried woman finds a baby named Christopher in her barn on Christmas Eve in Maine. A British bride calls on Faith and her sister for help after a series of alarming "accidents." And Faith herself is almost "Sliced" in a reality cooking show when the competition turns deadly.

Fun reading. Each story was worthwhile. The story, "The Almost Widower," was the best.

I love both short stories and mysteries and this has both. Katherine Hall-Page really has a way with a short story. My favorite in this collection is a tale of a husband and wife, the husband has fallen out of love with his wife and has decided that the way to deal with her is to poison her to death. I won't spoil it for you but I laughed at the end of this story. Katherine uses a dark humour and great writing to bring to life some wonderful short stories.

An excellent book of short stories by one of my favourite mystery authors. Loved the different scenarios of them, so original. "Small Plates" provides some big reading satisfaction.
