Love Hurts & Bigfoot on Campus by Jim Butcher

Title: Love Hurts
Author: Jim Butcher
Anthology: Songs of Love and Death: All-Original Tales of Star-Crossed Love

This is a small novella as part of the Songs of Love and Death Anthology. In it, Harry and Murphy are investigating a case where couples are getting murdered. Someone is responsible and they need to find them before more people get hurt. 

What I liked about the story is that Harry and Murphy do get to admit some of their feelings for each other. Their friendship is solid, but they haven't discussed what they feel for each other in a while. 
As always, things are not what they look like and they are lucky to be alive by the end of the story.

Now, I still have some hope that Harry can fall for Molly. I'm probably in the minority.

Title: Bigfoot on Campus 
Author: Jim Butcher
Anthology: Hex Appeal

Bigfoot on Campus is another novella as part of the Hex Appeal (Now, I have started reading the short stories in between the books. I don't want to miss anything).  Harry is asked by Big Foot to check on his son. Harry does as asked and he discovers a white court vampire immersed in the young man's life. However, not everything is at it seems. 

Harry can't seem to stop himself from getting into danger by helping other people. On the other hand, by doing this, he's making even more, allies. 
I thought the novella was really well written, with a great plot and a good ending. 
I'm never disappointed.
