Book Tour: Book Review - Grimm Woods by D. Melhoff


Blurb:
A remote summer camp becomes a lurid crime scene when the bodies of two teenagers are found in a bloody, real-life rendering of a classic Grimm’s fairy tale. Trapped in the wilderness, the remaining counsellors must follow a trail of dark children’s fables in order to outwit a psychopath and save the dwindling survivors before falling prey to their own gruesome endings.
Drawing on the grisly, uncensored details of history’s most famous fairy tales, Grimm Woods is a heart-pounding thriller about a deranged killer who uses traditional children’s stories as tropes in elaborate murders. Set against the backdrop of modern-day Michigan, it’s a journey through the mind of a dangerous zealot and a shocking glimpse into the bedtime stories you thought you knew.

About the Author:
D. Melhoff was born in a prairie ghost town that few people have heard of and even fewer have visited. While most of his stories are for adults, he also enjoys terrifying younger audiences from time to time, as seen in his series of twisted picture books for children. He credits King, Poe, Hitchcock, Harris, Stoker, and his second grade school teacher, Mrs. Lake, for turning him to horror.

My Take on the Book:
Though the story starts off slow and sometimes it felt like there wasn't anything happening, the story eventually did pick up. Scott Mamer appeared to be quite cocky at times, at other times he seemed to be unsure. I gave this book a four star rating and got a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Last Word:
There were times when this book was a little bit graphic; but overall, I enjoyed the story-line.
