Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

The House of the Cats: and other traditional tales from Europe

The House of the Cats: And Other Traditional Tales from Europe - Maggie Pearson

I wasn't sure about this one in the beginning; the first story was from Austria, called The Soldier's Bride, and it creeped me right the hell out.  No way would I read it to my nieces until they were old enough to show a ghoulish delight in scary stories.

 

The rest of the collection was fantastic, a few real gems and no real clunkers.  Some had clearly recognisable elements, but none of them tales I'd ever heard before.

 

A great find.


This fits the Suspect: Arthur Conan Doyle card, as it's a collection of short-stories.
