Enter a wonderland of mesmerizing tales. It's a place that s neither here nor there, where things are never quite as they seem. Inspired by Lewis Carroll s whimsical masterpiece, ranging from the impossible to the mad to the curiouser, these stories will have you absolutely off your head. Don't be afraid to follow them DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE".

I have read the J.D. Robb story as soon as the book landed on my doormat, and I loved it. Really crazy characters in this story, and Eve cracked the case admirably.

The other stories took me a lot longer to read and I still don't understand why I did that. They are just weird, and I don't do weird. The only one I liked a bit was the last one, by R.C. Ryan, and still the heroine was doing something really stupid, going after her hero in her nightgown and without shoes in the Highlands. Really? Why not dress for the weather and the terrain first?

So, 9 stars for the JD Robb story, and 5 stars out of 10 for the rest.
