{Book Review} THE GIRL WHO HID IN THE TREES by Steve Stred

Reviewed by Valerie Dorsey

Thanks go out to the author, Steve Stred, for this pre-release mobi copy in exchange for a honest review. Release date is 2/28/2019. I have read other works by this author and I what to say it is so amazing to see how this author is growing and improving within his craft!


Great horror, urban legend tale that draws you in right from the first line, “Abigail, don’t stray too far, ok.” Now, this kinda lets us know that Abigail will more than likely stray too far and let’s the reader know that something has happened before Abigail entered the picture. That something is bound to happen to her because she strayed too far and with that the story is off and it’s doesn’t let up till the last sentence!! I really enjoyed this one, good job Steve!!

Something lurks just beyond.

Centuries ago a heinous act created a ripple that still haunts the residents to this very day.

Now the kids who reside near McConnell’s Forest live forever in fear.

Jason lost his brother when he was young. He left with his friends to ‘debunk’ the urban legend and never came back.

Now Jason and his group of friends are fed up and want to discover what is happening, what is the real cause of the terror holding their small town hostage.

But something is waiting for them. She may look sweet and innocent, but the friends are about to find out that pure evil can exist in the smallest of packages.

She’s out there. And while you may not know her name or what she looks like, the local kids will tell you if you ask, that you should fear for your life from the girl who hid in the trees.
