"I loved this book. The characters are quirky, fun...If this book is made into a movie I would definitely watch it. I loved all the thoughts that go on in Robin's mind. I also loved Creek: his loving and caring character. The way he protects everyone makes him a real hero, even if he does it in a not-so-legal way. Overall, the story is great and the characters are well-developed." -Lorena Sanqui, Readers' Favorite Book Review
"If you don't fall in love with the entire gang at Turtles Shores and the adventures and magic that permeate each page, you may need to check if you are breathing! -Dianne Bylo, Amazon Top Reviewer

From the first scene, told in a convincing first-person teen voice, to the last, Robin in the Hood is delightfully tongue in cheek, randomly crazy, and humorously odd. It tells of a teen coming of age, family trust lost long ago, the dawning of love, and the bombing of bad guys with trebuchets and jello pits. But there’s wisdom and mystery hidden under the crazy action, quick-fire dialog, and rapid romance. Creek, though mystically odd, repeatedly retreats to an appropriate distance. Robin, though over-the-top and wild, slowly learns there’s more to love and rejection than quick assumptions. Prayers, though no one is sure who they’re sent to, are answered. And a nicely modern Robin Hood theme slips pleasingly into the space around a hidden lake.
This isn’t the sanitized Robin Hood where rich people never get hurt. Nor is it the overly-socially-conscious sort that agonizes over other poeple’s pain. Rather it’s a quick sharp romp through modern fantasy, blending fairytale, romance, excitement and fun in well-measured portions—a fast, cool, highly recommended read.
Disclosure: I was given a free ecopy during the author’s blog tour. I’m just sorry it took me so long to get around to reading it.
by Diane J. Reed
I received a copy of this book in return for an honest review.
Diane Reed is a new author for me. I am so glad to have found her. This may be the first of her works I have read but it will definitely not be the last.
The title of this novel is what drove my desire to read it. I always loved to read the adventures of the legendary Robin Hood. My curiosity went rampant. How close could a contemporary novel go.
This novel is full of suspense, adventure, love, mystery and fairy tale.
A fifteen year old society girl is dragged into a life so surreal to her own as to be almost infathomable. She is pulled from a life of wealth and protection into the world of poverty.
She has nothing but questions. Who is she really? Where did she come from, who are her real parents and does she have a family are all questioons with seemingly no answers.
From the moment of her father's abrupt illness and loss of all his lifes earnings into abject poverty she is on the run. She needs to kidnap her father from a hospital, steal a car and rob her first bank. She finds herself in a trashy trailer park that is reminicent of a gypsy camp. From then on, her life is one of an adventure novel.
While reading this story, you will find yourself wondering whether you are in the real world or that of a fairy tale or legend. Your mind will compare the characters to those you read about as a child. You may even ask yourself the question, was Robin Hood really and outlaw or a good guy. Is Robin really a felon or a good person. You will not want to put the story down but turn to the next page.
Will Robin find the answers to her questions. Will she find out what things are most valuable in life. Will she forgive her father and maybe find out who her mother really is. These are the things that will drive you to the next page.
This has lead me to wanting more and I will have to read the next two of this series "Stone of Thieves" and "Sherwoods End".
This is a must read for all adventure story lovers both young and old.
In the story Robin and her father are forced to go into hiding in one of the most unexpected places. A rundown tailer park in the middle of nowhere. Now they are not only broke, but they have to struggle to piece back together their fragile relationship with the help of some unlikely residents from Turtle Shores. Granny Tinker, Brandi, TNT Twins, Lorraine, Dooley, Bixby and the Colonel are more than they appear. Sure they are strange and definitely eccentric, but the bond they share and their loyalty to each other makes them key to this story, PLUS they really made me laugh with some of their crazy antics.
Of course this book would not be complete without Creek. He is to me the heart of the story and the most compelling character from Turtle Creek. He loves with his whole being and puts the needs of everyone he cares for ahead of his own. The fact that he's bold and doesn't hold back his feelings only makes him more attractive. He stole my heart.
"When you touch someone this beautiful-- It's like falling into a pool of light. And all of a sudden, You're that beautiful, too..." ~Robin
"When a girl like you comes along," he swiped another kiss like a thief, "and she's got the beauty and brass to write her name all over a guy's heart--well, there ain't much point in tattoos anymore." ~Creek
Robin in the Hood is the beginning of a great series. I can't say enough wonderful things about it. I highly recommend you grab a copy and get ready for the ride of your life with this hidden treasure.
