Editorial Reviews


"Not since Stephen King's 11/22/63 have I picked up a book and felt compelled to read at every opportunity I could spare a minute. Rebecca Stroud's Devil's Moon did that for me; it is gripping, suspenseful and will pull you along from the very first word written on the page." - Sweet Diva Reader (SDR) Maria

"The writing is superb and the editing first class. The characters are well-rounded, interesting dialogue and just a damn good read. This one is worth 10 stars...A very well-written and creative piece of work." - James Anderson, author/editor and Amazon Top Reviewer

"I simply LOVED this book. A quick read, lots of suspense, very well-written and edited and deserving of 5+ stars. Highly recommended!" - Linda Tesoroni (New Jersey reader)

"Here is a tale that is absorbing, fast-paced, unpredictable...and one that deserves my 5-Star rating. Truly, a fascinating read." - John L. Evans (California reader)

"Having not read any of Ms. Stroud's works, I wasn't sure what to expect with this book. Ms. Stroud did not disappoint; she managed to pack a lot of content into a short, well-written book that was full of surprises around every corner. It packs a wallop and I loved every moment. I ran the entire roller coaster of emotions from love, hate, fright and tears and was sad to say goodbye to Jane, Sam, Danny and Devil when it ended. If you like a book with a strong heroine, a real nasty villain and a big ole softy dog, this book is for you."  - lovestodive (Member of the Paranormal Romance Guild's Dual Review Team)

Take one, long-suffering ex-husband and his normal, down-to-earth new wife, add in one large much-loved dog, an equally loved but conflicted step-son and just to finish the mix, throw in the most vindictive, self-righteous ex-wife the world has ever known, with a passion restricted to her own desire for revenge and self-gratification... that pretty much covers the elements within this literary ride, and I have to say, Rebecca Stroud has created a hugely entertaining, well written and very creative piece of work.

The characters are rounded, real and so well detailed you know exactly how you feel about then from the start... even the dog!
There is a little harsh language, but Stroud uses nothing out of any context where you would expect from the specific character in question, and each profanity is applied almost precisely as you might expect.

The descriptive writing throughout is a very high standard and the editing is first class, coupled with a very good and well thought out storyline, make this a good, solid book for any journey or perhaps a few hours down-time.
Lots of minor twists and turns build into a superb little sub-plot revolving around the least likely character and at the end, the final twist is both remarkable and unexpected.

If this is on your To-Be-Read list, I recommend you give it a boost up, if it's not there already, it certainly should be!

A good author will create a connection between the reader and the characters, and this is what Rebecca Stroud was able to do in Devil's Moon. I felt I knew each and every one involved...especially the ex wife..I think I've personally dealt with that one! A good suspense novel with alot of emotional twists.

Not since Stephen King's 11/22/63 have I picked up a book and felt compelled to read at every opportunity I could spare a minute. Rebecca Stroud's Devil's Moon did that for me. I opened this book yesterday intending to read 2 maybe 3 chapters, but suddenly found myself a bit over 60% in with a family clamoring for their dinner. Immediately after doing the serving & clearing up, I sat back down and literally devoured the rest of this story. It is shorter then King so you can easily finish in a day, his took me a week.

The main characters in this book are mostly extremely likeable as well as believable. They are:

Sam- a kindhearted, veterinarian who is also Jane's husband. This is a second attempt at matrimony for both and a very happy one.

Jane- wife of Sam who works at a really crappy job for Randall a basket case, whiner, loser boss, but volunteers at the local animal shelter as well.

Devil- Jane's getting older, ugly, but much beloved dog who is embraced by the whole family.

Danny- son of Sam and Bambi who I will describe later and is the pretty typical 17 yr old child of divorced parents when one parent is acrimonious and can't move on. Conflicted and afraid to let his step-mom Jane too far into his life.

And then there is Bambi- a foul mouthed southern belle, piece of nasty work who believes the sun rises and sets on her or at least it should. She cannot cope with having been replaced by Jane as Sam's wife feeling Jane is inferior to her and becomes seriously unbalanced with a severe drinking problem to boot.

I had read the review for the PRG for Do Unto Others, and was unsure of what Ms Stroud's Devil's Moon would be about. Suffice to say this short novel under 150 pages did not disappoint. Miss Stroud has a great writing style with the POV coming from all her ensemble, so you know what is going on with all of them.

Sam Wilson has gotten it right the second time, divorcing the cheerleader Barbie doll first wife, and meeting the love of his life. He has married Jane and they are deeply in love. Enter the ex wife Bambi (yes Bambi), you all know her type, high roller, exquisite, with a black heart. She is the wicked mother of a great son who doesn't deserve any of this, Danny.

The title does not tell what the book is about, and you will only `get it' after you read the book. The mystery evolves when Bambi realizes her life is slipping by and she has nothing. Her claim to fame is her beauty, her boobs and her social status, which will all soon be a changing. She is living her life in a bottle of booze and anger, with her unhealthy hatred, and devises a plan to take Jane and Sam down with her.

The book is such a quick read as the author takes us down this windy path, during a month before Christmas. You feel the Holiday spirit of all the cast. Jane's love for the holiday makes every one of her family love it too. She is a bright light for her husband Sam, her dog Devil and her step son Danny.

The hatred in Bambi permeates the pages, and you are filled with loathing for her. Being in her head, as she rationalizes her feelings is also hard. She makes some pretty loathsome choices and you are rooting for the good guys.
