    Thanks for posting this one, Kris! Now that I’ve enjoyed reading it, I’ll have to go back through to find those 25 try/fail sequences. ;-)

  2. Wow, that’s a nice story. I love it! Crime isn’t my usual genre, but this is wonderful. Also, it has a cat, and I’m a sucker for cats. Thanks for letting us read this for free.

    I really loved Frank’s voice and the story was a great balance/contrast between the horrific crime scene and his sweet, growing concern for Rip. While reading it, I kept thinking of this as a first chapter of a novel — and was left disappointed that there weren’t more crimes for Frank to solve. I would have loved to see Rip see him through more of the healing process.

    Great story!

    I agree with Christine! What a powerful little story with characters I would love to see in a novel. Thanks for posting this!

    Thanks for sharing this story. I was thinking I was going to have to wait until next month to read it as an ebook. I like how Frank is flawed and likable. I just wanted to say I’ve really enjoyed the Short Story lecture series and am happy to read this to round out the experience.

    Great story!

    • Thanks, Josephine. I’ll have to put on the website that “Little Miracles” is now available as an e-book, so people can see it to go with the lecture. Thanks for the kind words on the series!
