Editorial Reviews

Review

"A great read...steady-paced, with plenty of action and a few twists you won't see coming. It has everything - supernatural goings-on, plenty of ghosts, a bit of romance and a whole lot of humor - all wrapped up in a neat, easy read. This is an excellent start to a series, a story that hooks you enough to make you want to read the next one." -Readers' Favorite
"Alexa (Alex) Bentley is the type of main character I love... the plot grabbed me and made me want to read on, while the lightheartedness made the story even more enjoyable... I couldn't work out the solution to the mystery... this is a book I would be quite happy to read a second time." -
Long and Short Reviews, Orchid 
"The story is fast-paced, the plot entertaining, the characters - in particular Alexa - are intriguing... this is a gripping read that fans of paranormal mysteries will certainly enjoy." -
I Heart Reading, Majanka 
"This was the best mystery/paranormal story I have read in a long time. It had great characters. It was filled with action and mystery. It kept me genuinely enthralled from beginning to end. Oh, and that ending!!! I can't wait to read the next Alexa mystery. I'm sure it's going to be another wild ride!" - Boundless Book Reviews, Stormi

From the Author

Michigan's Upper Peninsula is a very special place to me. I stayed at a cabin just outside of Munising on my honeymoon, and many of Alexa Bentley's experiences were inspired by that wonderful week. For example, my spouse and I saw the Northern Lights there together for the first time on a chilly night in September. The restaurants Alexa visits were also inspired by the wonderful food we had in Munising and Marquette (especially breakfast!). Although this is work of fiction, locals will undoubtedly notice many real-life touches. I've also taken some artistic liberties with the area, but I think Yoopers will find the changes to be minimal.  As far as I know, there are no ghosts haunting Munising, nor are there any dark secrets or mysteries to solve. But some of the things that are discussed in the book, including ancient mining on Isle Royale and the Native American wendigo legend, are based on Michigan's real history.

April A. Taylor is an award-winning, multi-genre author and dark art photographer. Her debut novel, The Haunting of Cabin Green, was featured on:

-Popsugar's '13 Most Chilling Horror Books of 2018.'

-Inquisitr's 'Best Horror Books of 2018.'

-Ranker's '2018's Scariest Horror Books.'

-BoredPanda's '7 Books That Scared Me Half to Death.'

-BLGM's 'Best Gothic Horror Books.'

Sinkhole: A Horror Story and Missing in Michigan received 5-Star ratings from Readers' Favorite. Corvo Hollows was named a 5-Star Must Read Book by Reedsy.

Sinkhole: A Horror Story was featured on:

-Grit Daily's 'Horror Continues to Thrive with the Scariest Books of 2019.'

-Medium.com's 'Celebrate Halloween with These Macabre and Progressive Horror Books.'

-BuzzFeed Community's '7 New Horror Books That Will Actually Scare You.'

The Haunting of Cabin Green was the #1 Amazon best seller in the U.S. New Horror Releases category for three straight weeks. It went on to become a #1 Best-Seller in Gothic, Ghosts, U.S. Horror, and LGBT Horror. Additionally, it was the Top Vote-Getter in the Horror/Suspense category of The Kindle Book Review's 2018 Reader's Choice Awards.

Both books in her Midnight Myths and Fairy Tales series became a #1 Best Seller in Amazon's Canada store during March 2018.

Many of April's books take their inspiration from real-life events. Local history is woven throughout the Alexa Bentley Paranormal Mysteries Series, and all of her novels/novellas contain at least one or two elements from the author's life.

In her psychological thriller book, Corvo Hollows, April delved even deeper into her own real-life events through a fictionalized account of one of the freakiest encounters she's ever been involved in. The main character in Corvo Hollows also battles fibromyalgia, as does April.

Like many writers, she started putting pen to paper during early childhood. Her first project was a family newspaper entitled The Taylor Family Times. Since then, she's spent more than three decades honing her craft through a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction projects.

April's appropriately spooky black cat, Riley, is her toughest editor and critic (look for pictures of him in action - and sleeping on the job - on Instagram!).

Horror caught her attention at a young age, and she's enjoyed exploring the darkness hidden inside everyone’s psyche ever since. She's also intrigued by each person’s capacity for astounding levels of goodness in the face of overwhelming evil.

April's horror, paranormal mysteries, thrillers, and dark, reimagined myths and fairy tales tackle both these topics. The darker side of humanity is also on display inside her Fine Art and Dark Art photographs, which have been published and exhibited around the world by a diverse list of media sources such as Fangoria, Scream: The Horror Magazine, and the short horror film Cathartic.

April is a proud member of the Horror Writer's Association. She lives in Michigan with the love of her life and their two cats. If her life was a cartoon, she'd be Lisa Simpson.

4.0 out of 5 stars Paranormal adventure
By Wendy Scott Multi-Award Winning Author on January 7, 2019
I enjoyed tagging along with Alexa on her paranormal adventure as she's quite a quirky character and I liked the use of the native legends. Alexa's antics were generally humorous although the storyline did deal with some heavy subjects, which is expected for this type of murder mystery. Towards the end I felt the story lacked a bit of cohesiveness. I would enjoy watching a TV series based on Alexa Bentley.
