There’s a promise of romance and intrigue in this collection of eight short stories released by Dog Ear Publishing. The book’s cast of characters range from a 19th century girl stalked by a killer, to a 20th century woman’s many mysterious portraits.

Dog Ear Publishing releases “I Do!” by John Reid.

This new book delivers eight short stories that will warm the heart and the senses.

In this new collection of eight short stories released by Dog Ear Publishing, the cast of characters range from a 19th century young woman being stalked by a killer, to a 20th century young woman dodging amorous offers from her love-struck neighbor. The opening story, “The Romance of Rosanna Tucciano,” is a parody of romance novels, featuring the village’s most beautiful young woman with a very big appetite and a much bigger following of would-be suitors, but she hopes to marry the young man who doesn’t seem interested in her.

In “So Many Portraits,” a woman keeps painting many portraits of a mysterious young man until she finds true love in The Bahamas– but not with her fiancé. A spiteful cat and flamboyant guests add splashes of humor to “Destiny at a Party,” and in “Comic Book Romance,” a playboy wants to woo the gorgeous girl he grew up with, but she refuses to be just another of his brief romantic flings. The book turns to the darker side of love with the haunting “A Tryst In The Fog,” which features a 19th century young woman fleeing a killer in a dense fog.

Author John Reid, an artist/designer who lives in Toronto, has written several novels and collections of short stories. His first novel was “Down a Dark Hall,” a prison crime-fantasy.-
