From the Author

After I finished my first novel, CAME A SHADOW, I was floundering around a bit wondering what the subject of my next book might be. I wanted to do something a bit different but didn't know just what. I asked my wife if she had any ideas. 'You know me,' she said, 'I love a good ghost story.' I confess I was a little reluctant to delve into a topic that many readers would have difficulty taking seriously, but I promised her I'd give it some thought. The result was CUTTER'S GROVE - not a ghost story in the traditional sense, perhaps, but one I do think you'll enjoy.

I do not normally read books in the genre of the supernatural. I chose Cutter's Grove while looking for inexpensive Kindle books. The book's description seemed to promise more than just a ghost story, and it delivered! I was very pleasantly surprised to discover a real storyline that didn't just hover on the eerie. Instead, I found the main character to be a man who was involuntarily chosen to reveal a killer living unsuspectingly in a small town, who demonstrates a great willingness to seek the truth and bring peace to the people of Cutter's Grove.

I would definitely recommend this book; even to those who might normally shy away from ghost stories.

I really didn't know how I was going to rate this. It starts out like a promising ghost story after Lucas Tunney escapes his disastrous life in Seattle only to first end up desolate in the desert. There trouble starts when he is terrified after being visited by a young girl's ghost or did he?. Rescued and taken to the fairly nearby town of Cutter Grove, he finds an idyllic life to soak his wounded life. Patrick Dakin then weaves a long placid study developing the characters of this Southern California town. Almost too long but enjoyable. But the quiet life Lucas savors turns topsy turvey with disappearances of young girls, too many love interests, trust and distrust from the locals and the law. Quiet this town isn't. As the story developed into a whopper of a mystery or mysteries, I cursed Lucas who is the king of bad decisions. Pride, shame, guilt guide this anti-hero into one situation after another. I won't begin to describe the story, too long here. Patrick Dakin takes the reader on a wild ride of paranormal, romance, crime, suspicion all in the backdrop of a seemingly sleepy little town. I loved it and was guessing to the end.

CUTTER'S GROVE
This book is about the murder of two little girls. There is a little paranormal thrown in. There was good character development. The story was a little slow moving. Everyone's instant like/love for a stranger in a small town was a implausible to me. But all in all it was a good read.

Haven't read a book in quite some time but I must say I really enjoyed this book! Once I got started with it I found it very hard to put down. Excellent character development and very well thought out story line had me hooked from the opening sentence. Looking forward to reading more from this author. Next up for me is going to be " Came A Shadow" which I have heard is even better!

Not my favorite book by a long shot. Enough romance, G-rated, but actually not much mystery or suspense. The book could have been shortened by at least one third and been a better read. It rambled and could have used some character development. They all came across as pretty flat. Not many typos, misused words or uses of poor grammar. There were also a few times when I laughed at some expression Lucas used. Shame there weren't more of those.

If you get around the authors love of metaphors it is an interesting read. The 'who-done-it' part was a little transparent but how it went down was good. I did enjoy the story within the story aspects. It rounded out the characters.

Disillusioned with life and getting served up an ice cold dish of betrayal on plate, Lucas Tunney leaves everything. Driving deep in the night his vehicle breaks down and is there for what seems like eternity. Lucas see witnesses a ghost that makes him question his sanity. He is rescued and taken back to a sleepy town.

In a town where no one seems to have a history or a past he finds a place of solace. Lucas finds the town a nice place to disappear and be anonymous. Slowly he finds work, blends in and realized that the ghost he saw is that of a child who disappeared. This is a mind bending ride. I love the characters. They are so gritty real, flawed, and imperfect.

Sometimes to save yourself you have to save someone else. Lucas decided to answer this plea for help. Perhaps it is just a date with destiny. It is a great read and it keeps you guessing to the very end.

This is an excellent book. The writing is excellent, the characterizations come about naturally and effortlessly in the course of the story, and the mystery itself is riveting. Only a few minor things account for the subtraction of one star. The main one is that, despite some great red herrings, I knew who the culprit was fairly early on. That said, the story is so well told that, in the end, just seeing how the author brought all the threads together & the villain to justice was worth it. The only other quibble was the on-again/off-again nature of Lucas & Beth's relationship - I found her a little annoying, but taken as a whole, the book might have been less thrilling without that additional by-play. I will definitely be seeking out more books by this author.
