    1. One of the best noir gumshoe detective/fairy tale mashups I've read - and it's a free online novella, here at The Book Smugglers website.Jimmy Prince is a private detective, semi-estranged from his rich mother. At a fancy ball put on by his mother, he sees Ella:It was half past eleven when I saw her. She was standing at the top of the staircase, with restless fingers and defiant eyes, wrapped in blue silk that clung to her hips. Her legs went on, and on, and on. I knocked back my drink and cross [...]

    2. Private Eye Jimmy "you know smart’s not my style" Prince sees a smokin' hot dame at his mother's fundraiser and falls hard. When she disappears that night, leaving only a blood stained glass shoe behind, he decides to investigate. Unfortunately, he is a lousy detectiveFree here: thebooksmugglers/2015/11/t

    3. We are so excited about this one!!! ETA: IT'S OUT, IT'S OUT IT'S FINALLY OUT thebooksmugglers/2015/11/t

    4. I remember buying this because it had lesbians. But since it didn't have lesbians, either I remembered wrong, or whoever recommended it was mistaken. However, I'm pretty sure the main character was a bisexual man, so it wasn't a total loss.It was also a really fun fairy tale-inspired short mystery! I really liked the adaptation of Cinderella into this new noir world. I'm intrigued enough to read more set in this world. Good stuff.

    5. I had such a great time reading this; it is short so it only took me a few of my breaks at work to finish it. The best part is that it's free to read here.I saw this pop up in my friend Sarah's books. She always has good taste, and she mentioned in her review that it's a fairy tale retelling (I'm a HUGE sucker for those) and it's a sort of noir setting. Seemed like two awesome things put together, and it was. I'm excited for the next one.

    6. The Case of the Bloody Little Slipper caught my eye when I wanted to read and support more short fiction publishing and in particular wanted to support Book Smugglers Publishing. Fairytales in a noir crime setting sounded interesting and so I gave it a try. The cover itself drew my interest looking very reminiscent of Cinderella, but also hinting toward the noir style of the story. From the first I was transported into the universe of Spindle City, because the language was so markedly difference [...]

    7. Today I finished proofreading one of my upcoming books and wanted to reward myself with an interesting short read. And this story definitely turned out to be a treat.I mean, check this out:It was half past eleven when I saw her. She was standing at the top of the staircase, with restless fingers and defiant eyes, wrapped in blue silk that clung to her hips.How can you not be intrigued by this? :)Jimmy Prince is a PI who lives in Spindle City and has a teenage assistant. When he meets an alluring [...]

    8. At first I thought tat Spindle City was so noir that it must be parody, but nope, this is a serious fairy tale noir with lots of darkness. What makes this particular work interesting is that St. George doesn't try to create a fairy tale world. There are fairy tale characters attached to certain tropes or imagery. But it's a homage rather than a strict retelling, and this works rather well in context. Spindle City is a dark and nasty place, plagued by a strange illness that one family holds the o [...]

    9. I love a good noir detective and I have a weakness for fairytale retellings. In other words, Carlie St. George’s The Spindle City Mysteries hit the sweet spot just with their description alone. I was sold on the concept. But concept is one thing, execution another and I’m glad to say St. George didn’t disappoint. While written as three separate novellas and originally released in serial-form on the Book Smugglers, I read the stories in order almost as one long story. The three novellas cer [...]

    10. I'm loving these short stories by Book Smugglers Publishing. They're the perfect type of quickie that leaves me fulfilled. And the diversity, yay! An Indian Cinderella? Yes please! I often find myself irritated with short stories because I don't feel that I'm given any sort of closure. You can leave a bit of a cliffhanger but not one that ends up with me pissed and frustrated. No pissy and unhappy Harper here!The retelling of a classic fairy tale as a detective mystery is all kinds of awesome. H [...]

    11. Another great publication from the Book Smugglers - this was a delightful read, particularly as I spent a large chunk of last year studying noir. This falls very clearly into that category and also hits my fairy tale retelling sweet spot. The vocabulary can be a bit to muddle through, but otherwise a really engaging read. Looking forward to reading the next one!

    12. A killer (pun intended) spin on fairy tales through a noir lens. Utterly delightful, and has some great hints at characters that I hope will get further fleshing out in the sequels. As it is, I'm hooked on the adventures of Jimmy Prince and Jack, and can't wait to learn more about their fantastical world.

    13. Holy balls this was good. great. fantastic. I love fairy tales and I never would have thought to rework them like this. St.George is super talented. Can't wait to read the rest of the series.

    14. This was excellent. So short, but so good. Admittedly, the slang was a bit excessive, at times making it hard for me to understand what was going on.
