Just Another Day in Paradise by Katherine Tomlinson

I won this book from Member Giveaways on LibraryThing.

I just finished reading this book of short stories and had to post this right away! What a great read!  The stories are "dark" stories, but very interesting. I'm really not sure how to review this book, as the stories are short and about different things.  I noticed that most of the stories tend to revolve around "karma", as in people getting away with things, but then bad luck or death follows them later.  My favorite story was the very last story (appropriately placed in my opinion!).  It was about a Lady and a stray cat named Otto, which the Lady (as she was called in the story) found while the cat was being bullied by a group of kids.  I don't want to ruin the story by describing what the story was about, but the ending gave me goosebumps.  Those are the types of stories that I love!

This is a great book for those who don't mind dark (but not too dark) subject material. I would say it is appropriate for adults and maybe older teens. I do recommend it to those who want to try it - you won't be sorry!
