Review:

"Tom gives us unique and fun stories, with thought-provoking plots. His narratives are sometimes poignant, sometimes humorous but always memorable and engaging, with O. Henry twists that are sure to surprise and entertain. These truly are Stories to Enjoy!" --Gordon Kessler, author of Jezebel and Dead Reckoning

"Mach has crafted stories with different characters and unusual premises that can interest short-story enthusiasts. I wish him much success." --Marissa Libbit for Reader Views

"Stories to Enjoy is a highly imaginative collection of fun stories. Ultimately, it will delight readers looking for a light, but engrossing read." --Foreword Reviews

"The stories that you will find in this book have been writen with great care for detail. This author definitely makes sure you have a clear mind picture of the people and locals as you read. Each story is unique, and you are always surprised at how each ends. At times you will be fulfilled at the conclusion, other times you may feel there needed to be more. Now that is not a bad thing because it makes you think of the story even after the read is complete. Tom Mach has proven to me that he is a writer. I have read some of his other works, 'Sissy,' and 'All Parts Together,' and truly enjoyed them. 'Stories To Enjoy' will be added to that list." --The Midwest Book Review

"Stories to Enjoy is a highly imaginative collection of fun stories. Ultimately, it will delight readers looking for a light, but engrossing read." --Foreword Reviews
