This paper presents a literature review on story-test driven development. Our findings suggest that there are many lessons learned papers that provide anecdotal evidence about the benefits and issues related to the story test driven development. We categorized these findings into seven themes: cost, time, people, code design, testing tools, what to test and test automation. We analyzed research papers on story test driven development to find out how many of these anecdotal findings were critically examined by researchers and analyzed the gaps in between. The analysis can be used by researchers as a ground for further empirical investigation.
