A detective sent to a travelling circus to find a missing boy; A guy with a mysterious trunk must meet a stranger at a motel to survive; A doll turns up and becomes a little girl’s best friend.

Tales From The Coffee Pot is my second read from Jim Ody, and I can say I’m a big fan. He is an interesting story teller, with so much talent. I appreciate short stories so much, so this collection is right up my alley.
I really enjoyed the different types of stories. Some humorous, others creepy, all with the same wow factor when it comes to the writing. I read straight through these stories, without much pause. Each time I finished a story, I couldn’t bring myself to stop, because each one was so great.
This is an author that will go on my auto-read list. If you enjoy short stories with excellent writing, this is the collection for you. Highly recommended.
Thank you to Zooloos Book Tours for the review copy and the opportunity to honestly review this book on the blog tour. All opinions are my own and unbiased.
Jim writes dark psychological/thrillers, Horror and YA books that have endings you won’t see
coming, and favours stories packed with wit. He has written over a dozen novels and many more short-stories spanning many genres.
Jim has a very strange sense of humour and is often considered a little odd. When not writing he will be found playing the drums, watching football and eating chocolate. He lives with his long-suffering wife, three beautiful children and two indignant cats in Swindon, Wiltshire UK.
