New Review! Squirrel Bait by Chip Davis, 4 Cranky Stars





Gloriously silly and I say that in the best possible way. I've had a somewhat hectic schedule - filled with heavy reads, gut wrenchers and rippers, soul-destroying-stare-into-spacers.

Squirrel Bait was not one of them. It was the palate cleanser and provided some much needed fun. It had me laughing at the dedication.

Imagine a B grade horror movie - part comedy, drama, and tragedy. You get the cringe laughs and the 'oh no, they didn'ts'. This was that, but in book form.

Our female lead is Tonya, the librarian, who has 'interesting' facets in her background. As books are hurt, so too are the defilers. I'm sure those of us who are book lovers can relate...

Nefarious plots, mysterious deaths and characters, and creepy backstories abound in this work.

Suspend belief and also, maybe, good social manners.

Epic highlight: the were-squirrel battle and apocalypse.

If you're looking for fun and silly, pick this up.
