5.0 out of 5 stars Black Woods, February 19, 2012
This review is from: Black Woods (Black Woods Series Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
In the interest of full disclosure, the author is my aunt. That said, I was surprisingly pleased with the story. The heroine (and her side-kick sister) are in their sixties, something I found refreshing. The story centers around her and her family, their love of mushroom hunting, and a mysterious being in a section of the woods they hunt. Their fear of the creature is put to the test when four hunters go into the black woods and can't all make it out. It is a quick and easy read, but what I loved the most is that, every now and again, the author used a turn of phrase that made me laugh out loud. For instance, when a carload of young men are teasing each other, she says, "laughter filled the car like poisonous gas." It was a fun read.

How refreshing to see a reviewer disclose their relationship to the author! Thank you.

I SOOOOOOOO agree! Thank you for doing that! SOOOO many times people don't do this, yet you get that feeling that this is a friend or relative, and that usually ticks me off. Thank you SO much for telling us from the beginning! VERY nice!

So many people seem to think that just because they are friends, or family, to the author that people won't accept their praise as valid, so they don't disclose the relationship in the review. Most people seem to see through those reviews and, as a result, most of them are voted unhelpful. You have shown that it is possible to write a glowing 5 star review, reveal the relationship to the author and still have the review rated as helpful by most of the voters.

Thank you for your honesty and thanks for the review. I'll have to reserve my thanks to your aunt until after I have read her book.
