Editorial Reviews

Coffeetime Romance & More - Suspektme Reviewer
For Sink or Swim: If you need help getting through a murderous workout (pun intended) this book is a wonderful, clever and entertaining distraction. The identity of the stalker left me guessing until the end, and believe me that is a refreshing and pleasant surprise. Congratulations, Ms. Juba, for giving us a great read.
The Romance Reviews - Veronica Marie Beaumont
For Twenty-Five Years Ago Today: A satisfying mystery with a layered plot. The characters are believable and memorable. They are so well crafted that the villains also leave you wondering where their off-page story may lead them. Using her characters, Ms Juba builds a suspenseful mystery that also manages to delve deeply into the complexities of family dynamics, grief, guilt and forgiveness.
Fresh Fiction - Lynn Cunningham
For Dark Before Dawn: A spooky and fast moving plot that keeps you on the edge of your seat until the shocking end...Dark Before Dawn is a special book that should not be missed.
Book Club Queen - Queenie C
For Twenty-Five Years Ago Today: Stacy Juba has written a page-turner! This has to be one of my favorite mystery books that I've read this year. The characters are well written and have so much depth that it feels like this has actually happened… Book club groups will enjoy this book because there is so much that happens between its pages.
Cover Blurb - Stephenie LaGrossa, three-time Survivor contestant
For Sink or Swim: Being on a hit reality show not once, but three times, made Sink or Swim really hit home for me… It was an easy read and extremely well written… I would love to see it come out as a movie one day!

    Twenty Five Years ago Today ¿¿ Stacy Juba has written an excelle

    Twenty Five Years ago Today
    “… Stacy Juba has written an excellent and shocking cozy mystery. The plot is a winding maze with not one but filled with wrong turns and deceptive clues meant to trick the reader until the very end. Not only will readers be kept on their toes, they will emotional drawn into not one but two separate families caught in the never-ending cycle of grief, depression and survivor’s guilt. Both families demonstrate the polar opposites of grief, one refusing to breathe a word about their loss and the other discussing all the details and what-ifs. An emotional, fast-paced and intriguing storyline, with wonderful writing makes this book a must-read for mystery readers. …”

    Sink or Swim
    “…Stacy Juba explores the good and bad sides of reality television fame. The story is a fast read, but does have a tendency to remain in the dramatic zone, even after Cassidy has returned back to her normal like. Readers will either like Cassidy or like to dislike her, since her personality seems to shift throughout the book. However the mystery aspect will leave the readers guessing, right up until the end. Juba demonstrates an exquisite talent for leading her readers through a maze only for them to discover a completely different outcome. …”

    Dark Before Dawn
    “… Stacy Juba takes on the world of teenage girls and the paranormal in this book. Readers will easily gobble up this book in one sitting. Readers will be able to relate to not only Dawn in her new setting, just trying to fit in, but to also some of the minor characters as well as they play their roles in her new high school/home. This book does have paranormal aspects, but it is the emotional journey that Dawn is on, is what will compel readers to keep reading until the very end. Dark Before Dawn covers many genres marvelously. …”

    Three wonderful books together in one package. They all kept me

    Three wonderful books together in one package. They all kept me reading long past the time I should have put the nook down and gone to bed! Solve a cold case in Twenty Five Years Ago Today. So you think you know whodunit? The answer just might surprise you. In Sink or Swim, what do you do when you have a stalker? Who do you trust? Only at the end will you learn that answer. And in Dark Before Dawn, watch a young psychic figure out if being wrong is the right way to go in order to fit in and be "normal." All three books were well written with characters that are realistic and believable. I highly recommend these books for anyone who enjoys a good book with twists and turns that leave you guessing right up to the end.
