This author knows how to hold your attention. This book has it all. From young to old characters, serious to funny plots, and plenty of suspense. Some quotes from the book I really loved: Its eyes glowed a violent blue. We look like fugitives from a fancy spa... Laughter is now bouncing around like a super ball out of control. I'm crocheting a pony to the sounds of murder. And many more... I do recommend this as an adult book, but not elementing YA. Changing from characters and scenes transition smoothly, making it an easy read. This book has a twisted ending, I didn't see it coming at all. I will be watching for more work from this author. :)

I loved this book. It starts off about two women mushroom hunting and they have to help out some turkey hunters lost in the woods. A creature is living in the Black Woods and they go in to find the hunters. I was spooked at times by this story and will read it again. Thank you for such a great story. I can't wait until this author writes something else.

Best book I've read in a long time. The two older ladies are great characters. This is an easy read book, with lots of good plots!

I know others praised this, but I just can't. The writing is very amateur, and the editing is horroble - so many typos. The story is pretty basic, and unless you are a mushroom hunter who enjoys hearing about mushroom hunting adnauseum, not worth the time to read it. The characters were poorly drawn, and stereotipical - dumb yokel boys going hunting, drinking and cussing.

This book is unusual. Mushroom hunting and turkey hunting set in a mystery around the "Black Woods". I've never read anything like it! I hope the author makes a sequeal :)

I couldn't make it past the first couple chapters due to spelling and grammar errors. I realize it doesn't bother some people but it drives me nuts. I can't concentrate on the story when I'm rewording things in my mind.

This book was great. Yes it's about mushroom hunting, the first line told me that. That's why I grabbed it. This suspense holds the readers attention. I love the ending!!!

Really????? Did anyone read this book before it was distributed???? So many typos and punctuation errors. Liked the story but the errors were far too many in number.

Three grammatical errors by the third paragraph!?! Too distracting to enjoy the book.

The story is great, keeps you interested. Read it in under a day because I couldn't put it down. Had a hard time over looking the poor editing, and wasn't wild about the ending but overall the story was quite captivating!

If you love suspense, then this is for you. This book will grab your attention from the start. It builds the characters brightly. The two main characters are older ladies who are sisters. The personalities of these women call to the reader. I laughed, and yes, even cried as I read this story. The four boys who come to the woods to turkey hunt are down right hilarious. Wow, this is a refreshing read from an indie author.

Black Woods is in the center of the local "woods" that 60-something sisters Julie and Laura go mushroom hunting in. An unknown evil animal (monster) lives in the "black" portion. Friends Eric, Skinner, Bob and Greg go hunting in the woods and accidently end up in the "black" section. The sisters are part of the local search team and the story takes off to a surprise ending. Although 489 pages - this is a quick read.

This was a scary book, but not gorey - the author leaves a lot to your imagination. Your mind will come up with much more than the author describes. Thos story would have made an excellent Twilight Zone or Outer Limits. I do not want to give anymore away than that. Enjoy and be careful of what you might find in your own Black Woods!

This is one of the best books i hav ever read it was amazing. It had a nice twist. I love horror books and this was a book i will remember. I could not put it down. This was the first book to give me a nightmare. Its scary untill you get to the last chapter when you read the book you will see what i mean. Once you read the last chapter you relize its not that scary. Dont quit in the middle of the book, trust me once you finch the book you will see why. This is the best book i have ever read especialy for free. I cant belive this is a free book, its so awsome. By the way sorry this review is so long. -lalablabla

Excellent read! I love Stephen King and Dean Koontz and this was right up there with them!

This is just an opinion but I couldn't quite get completely invested in this story. I found the mushroom hunting interesting but I think she should have included some action and adventure around the early foundation of explaining the sisters' relationship and hobby. The story was imaginative and the plot exciting. I had trouble with the "first person" viewpoint in this story, it almost had a juvenile tone of story telling. I would hate to discourage this writer as she has a great imagination and I would certainly read her future work given the opportunity.

I really enjoy the way we get to know the characters. The first person style is great but sometimes is very R rated. An interesting combination of strong personal morals...monogamy...with a very active sexual thought life. Definitely not for younger teens.
