"Each story in this terrific anthology by Australian writers has a unique take on what is an Easter promise…I really enjoyed this selection, particularly because of the diversity of the stories. Overall, the descriptions and scene settings were brilliant, the characters were colourful and engaging, and the four unique time periods provided vastly different storylines." -Chrissie, Goodreads
"This is a lovely anthology from 4 Australian authors. There is a different feeling to them all, Overall a great set of short stories and I will be keeping my eyes out for books from these authors!' - Addie, Goodreads--This text refers to the paperback edition.

All four of the stories centre around either an Easter activity, or an Easter timeline, with two of the four having wartime settings, and two also having medical settings. The first story by Sarah Fiddelears features everything I've come to expect from this author - clever word choices - and a gentle, yet well paced story that although short, built beautifully through to the end.
I highlighted this particular phrase that I loved: 'At the mouth of the bay sat Widuwe, a calm sentinel in the mass of black water that chewed at its edges.' I just loved the use of the word 'chewed' :)
While I enjoyed all four stories, I was particularly taken with the third in the anthology by Ava January called Le Malin Renard. There was something about this story that just felt completely sumptuous all the way through. I loved the chemistry between the two characters. I thought this was beautifully plotted, with great tension, as the characters are caught in a storm on top of a mountain at an exclusive resort.
For four short stories that have engaging plots, these are bite-sized and perfect for an 'isolated' night's reading.
Easter Dawn by Sarah Fiddelaers
An Easter Lil on the Somme By Nancy Cunningham
Le Malin Renard By Ava January
I just love the setting of this story set in France, 1924 at a Chateau on a cliff that is only accessed by a funicular. 12 guests are invited to an art auction when they all find themselves snowed in with on way down as the funicular has broken.
Ariadne Aries is enjoying the arrivals of all the different guests to the art auction as she gives us a humorous look into the ride up on the funicular.
Evander Jones is an inspector on the hunt of the emphasise international art thief Le Malin Renard. But this job might give him more than what he is looking for when the chemistry with one of the guess builds to something more.
A great historical mystery that will give you a real elegant feel
