Reviews for Poison in the Pond :
"This is an excellent horror novella that had me reading nonstop."
 "This was a great read. Thanks for the gift. I  read it in one day while at work ."
 "Poison in the pond was a brilliant read, couldn't put it down once I started it and wondered where it was going???? Kept me hooked till the very end."
​"I really loved this novella. I watch lots of horror films and no matter how good they are the ending always disappoints me. The ending of this book was brilliant. It was just as strong as the middle which was excellent. I was kept guessing right until the last page. Even now that I've finished the book I'm still thinking about it."
