    3. “Lakeview has a way of holding onto secrets and never letting them go.”I’m loving these short Halloween stories from NineStar Press! This one is cleverly written and I couldn’t put it down because I just needed to know what had happened in this town! ‘Maybe some prisons can never be escaped no matter what we try or how hard we want it.’This is the story of a town called Lakeview. Teddy is a fabulous part time drag queen who moves to Lakeview after the break up of a relationship. He s [...]

    4. Teddy is a gay hairdresser who returns to his hometown of Lakeview after many years away in the aftermath of a relationship break-up. The story follows his slow re-integration into small-town life and the eventual acceptance he finds there (at least from some of the townsfolk). Into this narrative are woven the threads of a ghost story and a terrible event that befalls the town and its residents.It's a compelling debut from M.D. Neu, with a cast of intimately drawn characters and a sombre and sp [...]

    5. A fantastic story full of good times and bad, The Reunion is one of those tales that you're going to want to read over and over again. In his protagonist Teddy, M Nue has given us a unique glimpse into the kind of courage and strength found in so many marginalized people in small towns across America. Steeped in mystery, Teddy takes us on a wonderful journey, perfect for the Halloween Season!

    6. Larger than life characters, a mysterious meteor, and strange events. A well-written story leading to a spooky climax. Well worth the read!

    7. Do you remember high school? Remember having to read all those challenging books and then having lively debates in English class about what you thought happened? Where the teacher MADE you come up with theories and then asked you to prove it by pulling evidence out of the story to support your position?Yup. There you have it. Welcome to hell.That doesn't sound like an endorsement, does it? Except, in this case, it is.Neu has created a small town where the cast of characters are instantly recogni [...]

    8. i869otobucket/albums/abThe Reunion was a 3.5 star read.We start the story with Teddy returning to Lakeview after 20 years.This is where the end began.We jump back 26 years.

    9. This lovely dark novella published by NineStar Press deserves five stars! Teddy is a hairdresser who lives in Lakeview, a quiet, small town. He has a few good friends and a few not-so friendly people to deal with, his teen son causes him some trouble, and what would a small town be without a huge amount of gossip? But aside from that, Teddy’s life is peaceful… then tragedy strikes Lakeview and everything changes. Wonderful characters (my favourite is posh Kasandra), funny moments, and beauti [...]

    10. I felt that the beginning was muddled and the ending was rushed but that is just me. The characters were very engaging and fun. A nice, short Halloween treat.

    11. 3 Stars. A quick, seasonal themed novel with no romance element at allThis books main character is Teddy, however the secondary characters also play a major part in the story and there are certainly a lot of them! I really liked the characters in this one. I thought they were well developed, all of the character got plenty of time in the book to get to know them and their personality traits. I also liked how diverse the character group was. You have the main character who often dresses in drag, [...]

    12. 5 stars!Never in a million years would I have imagined the direction this story had veered into. So impressively written! Huge thanks to the author! You SO knocked this story out of the ballpark.
