Oh well, these may not be the best short stories that I have ever come up with, but I gave it a whirl. When you are done with me, please visit the other story tellers over at Lisa's Writing in the Buff.

Wanting some time to herself, Marisa decided to go fishing on her father's boat. The day was beautiful and the lake calm. She packed a nice fried chicken lunch, her fishing gear and her book and walked out to the dock.
The boat was a handcrafted beauty. A master boat-builder, her father had labored over it for a whole year. They kept it at the family cabin on Lake Provalone, in Italy.
For those of you dear readers who may be unaware, Lake Provalone is where the huge fish known as The Big Sausage resides. As you may guess, Marisa will be coming into contact with T.B.S. on this little outing ... but will she end up in the water with him, or not? If so, will handsome Mario rescue her, or not? If your inquiring mind would like to find out, it is time to buy this book! (150)

For the past 15 years, best friends Justine and Daria make plans for a week together, alone. That means no husbands, children, and no ties to work. The other rule is that they have to choose someplace that is at least 9,000 feet in elevation.
This year, they are planning on going skiing at Mt. Bachelor in Central Oregon. Past vacations have included: Crystal Colorado, "Quinto", a campground in New Mexico, and Bryce Canyon National Park.
This year there is a twist. Daria is done with the friendship. She has designs on Justine's husband Frank, and plans to kill Justine, making it their last 9000’ foot vacation.
Will Daria's evil plan succeed? How will she accomplish making the murder look like an accident? Or, will fate step in and change the direction of events? You are sure to enjoy reading this thriller of deceit, lies, and a friendship gone bad. (150)
