Love a good story

This book contains 19 short stories that tug at the heart strings and are just right if you only have a few minutes to kill Each story is different with an out come at the end of each story that leaves you thinking. I read the book when it first came out and it was surprising how many I remembered as I listened to them so they obviously made an impact on me.the sign of a good book. There is far to many stories to tell you about individually but all the stories have twist and turns and a few I needed a tissue in order to continue listening too. The book covers everything from a soldier being discharged from the army and his love for his partner, to a doctor convincing a patient he does have a reason to live, to a mother protecting her family and the lengths she will go to, a police detectives out smarting criminals and getting a confession against the odds. This book covers it all but the main theme is good triumphs over evil, even if a few tears are needed to do it. Leslie Wolfe is an excellent and talented writer in order to get the reader to feel so much emotion in ten or twelve pages. A must read and with Gwendolyn heart felt performance you can't go wrong with this book.

Excellent

LOVE LIES AND MURDER Leslie.Wolfe THE BANJO The author pulls you in from the beginning, if you have ever seen someone trying to hop onto a train. Your heart stops, he can’t miss, he can’t., is your mantra. She continues with Jack finding the coil banjo strings, and the blood is his missing brother, Conrad. Taking a leave of absence from his job, he haunts the corners, the homeless. They mention a guy playing the banjo, and riding the UP trains. She has given us a tense, straightfordward , personal look at a brother missing and the brother looking for him. Another a woman who enjoying the sun. and talking with Elmo though the. son questions who is Elmo, nobody around he knew, or was there. Another a postman and putting money in a jar as a gesture of kindness for someone at Christmas. The stories are short, all are a great selection that will touch one‘s heart with.the emotion of the story. The first one was a favorite, though enjoyed all, Given audio. for my voluntary review and my honest opinion

Outstanding collection of short stories!

Love, Lies and Murder is a collection of short stories written by Leslie Wolfe. It consists of 19 stories which all show what a talented story teller Ms. Wolfe is. I have had the privilege of reading some of them previously and while they are each a complete story, I have never finished one without thinking "wow while this is a terrific short story, this could be expanded and make a terrific book!" Gwendolyn Druyor once again lends her narration to another of Ms. Wolfe's books. Her voice gracing these stories help make it a pleasurable listening experience. She puts the proper emotions into her narration as well as changing her voice so that it is easy to keep track of which character is speaking in conversations. My original intention was to give a brief synopsis of each story but soon found that difficult to do without giving away too much of the story. Suffice it to say the stories are divided into 3 thematic sections being of course love, lies, and murder. The stories in each section represent different degrees of each theme. For example, the stories representing love are about the love between spouses, love between man and his dog, love between parent and child, love between siblings, etc. Lies are the lies told for various reasons. Murder are different types and reasons for murder. Each story is an emotional experience. I do love Leslie Wolfe's stories and novels and very much look forward to each of them. I always preorder her books and when I am not fortunate enough to be gifted a copy of the audible, I purchase it as well.

An extraordinary collection

This is a collection of short stories that will hit you right in your heart. They are all emotionally charged, all different but linked by extreme feelings and conflict. All of them are vivid and captivating, with compelling characters and so well structured that I'd have problems trying to choose just one favourite because there are so many that truly touched me. 'Paying forward' is simply powerful. 'A Tour of duty' felt particularly close because I had a dog like that one and it brought so many memories!. 'Noisy Creek'! oh, it took me completely by surprise! 'Adam' is simply heart-warming and... see what I said? I can't choose! And Gwendolyn Druyor did such a wonderful job with the narration! I can't recommend this audiobook enough.
