Strange Brew was a fun series of paranormal stories, with nearly all the stories having romantic elements, some more than others.  “Dark Sins” was lovely and I want to find more in that series.  Charlaine’s story lived up to her voice of reality and humor and the ending was worth it.  And “Seeing Eye” was a different voice for Briggs, but was an excellent start to what is a fun anthology.
