The Scare


Wow!  The aptly named The Scare by Robert Shaw kept me up at night… reading!  The Scare is well written and engaging.  I wanted to see what would happen next and the intensity of it held me captive.  The protagonist, Ethan, is haunted by the murder of his little brother.  He finds someone who understands in a new girl who moves to town with her own closet full of skeletons.  They share broken pasts and try together to survive the present where the local bully torments everyone at school but has turned his sights on Ethan and his friends. When a series of grisly murders begins, Ethan suspects the town bully but doubts that anyone would believe him especially now that the town bully is dead.  If you haven’t yet read this… buy a copy.  I’m not sorry that I did!

Nobody Loves a Bigfoot Like a Bigfoot Babe (Book 1) by Simon Okill


Nobody Loves a Bigfoot Like a Bigfoot Babe bk 1The book is well-written, the story funny and the characters likable.  Truth and fiction are seamlessly blended together in this goofy tale.  I could visualize the small town where it all takes place and I could feel the frustration and pain of the local sheriff as she deals with the cockamamie citizenry.   To solve the latest Bigfoot abduction, the sheriff must question the man who dresses up as a Bigfoot and the man who swears he was abducted by aliens along with the rest of the township.  Matters only get worse when her lost love shows up to investigate the Bigfoot sightings for the FBI and she can’t decide if she should work with him or punch him.
