Review

"A riveting, young adult adventure with a big heart that will keep you tearing through the pages!" -Laura Howard, USA TODAY Bestselling Author

"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

Robin is going to rob banks, and she might fall in love. She’s fallen out of favor at her rich school because Daddy’s fixed the books and can’t pay the bills. But now...

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.

Easy to read and fall in love with the characters from the first page to the last!

Robin goes to a rich and snobby private girls school. Her life gets turned upside down when her father's health and business goes down the tubes. She quickly learns that she has been living a life of lies and doesn't know the truth anymore. But she soon learns a lot at Turtle Shores Trailer Park. She finally has a family that she was missing and a totally hot boyfriend named Creek. Together they begin robbing banks to help their family survive,

You will not be disappointed in this modern day robing hood story!

I consider my life pretty mundane, and when I find a book that captures and holds my attention, it is magical! This book did just that. It is well written with believable characters that pull at your heart strings. Robin and Creek may be teen-agers, but their story will appeal to all ages. Diane J. Reed infuses their adventures with humor and wisdom and makes them come alive. I would recommend this book to any one who wants to believe in true love and a little magic!

I enjoyed this book from start to finish. Was one of those you look forward to reading when you can finally sit down to relax. D Reed has a way of vividly capturing the spirit of individuals, and her characters have such charm and depth. Her exquisite humor pops up when leat expected! I found myself smiling and then laughing quite frequently. Last but not least, this book is filled with stories about real people and their struggles, but ultimately their connection to each other and its importance becomes quite evident. Gift yourself or someone else with this uplifting book! Great for teens and adults.

#What a captivating and magical read! Definitely a timeless adventure filled with mystery, intrigue, enchantment, and life’s ever growing lessons!#

Robin McArthur is a girl who on the outside seems like could want nothing more. She has looks, wealth, privilege, and status; everything a young woman could hope for. That is, in retrospect, to what she really and truly wants but lacks: love.

But….what happens when that is all taken away from her? Left with no money and debt collectors knocking on her door, Robin and her dad go on the run and slowly by slowly Robin feels herself doing the unexpected to survive: lying, stealing, and deceiving to stay afloat.

Now at a crossroads, fates steps in and she meets Creek, another lost soul with a criminal track but “a heart of gold.” Robin bonds with Creek and learns the importance of love, family, and that some of the most precious things in life can’t be measured in money.

Which brings me back to…
What about her major debt problem to clear up? 

Well, once again, here’s where Creek steps in. Along with Robin, they stage a series of bank robberies and slowly gain back the money to put them in the green.

Only, making up the money that is owed becomes just a part of the problem. When trouble comes lurking its way and Robin finds herself slipping only deeper into the insurmountable. Will she get caught? 

Will Robin ever get the chance in regaining a “normal” life? Will her father’s past indiscretions be solved? And what about Creek? How will things turn out for the teen that’d been not so long ago on the wrong side of the tracks but not so different from her after all? 

Read and you will find out!

Robin in the Hood is a wonderful young adult romance with a touch of fairy tale magic about a formerly rich girl who's forced to grow up fast and take responsibility when her family falls apart. Without any source of income, and after discovering her father has become disabled, for the first time in her life Robin decides to take destiny into her own hands and do something about creating the better future that she desires. Yes, she takes a few wrong turns along the way (one of which includes robbing banks), but this is a novel that shows the consequences of the main character's actions, and I loved how much the reader gets to see Robin grow from her experiences and mistakes. Along with her new-found maturity, Robin also falls for a thief named Creek that she meets at her new home in the trailer park, only to learn that this veteran outlaw has a secret heart of gold and a lot to teach her to teach about truly caring for others (reminiscent of the lessons in the legend of Robin Hood). This is a novel that is filled with charming characters, terrific plot twists, and a love story to die for that will keep you up way past your bedtime to see what happens next.
