Blue Hole and the Sequel River’s Edge are mystery suspense novels set in the Ozark Mountains that have received over (200) five star reviews.
The story is based on a tale my grandfather told about a murder where a body was found floating in a swimming hole. The name Blue Hole comes from the sky blue color of a deep pool of water where a spring branch runs into the Jacks Fork river from the mouth of a cave. Jacks Fork was named one of the most scenic float and fishing streams in the world by Life Magazine.
“Rolland, our daughter borrowed her nephew's copy of the Blue Hole last week. She said she read it in one setting, because she couldn't put it down. She said, "Mom, it is so scary. At first I thought this is just too scary for kids to be reading. Then I thought no, it's exactly what kid’s love. That scary, makes the hair on your arms stand on end kind of scared. And I saw those boys in the book, Tommy and Dub setting by the fire at night talking. It was so real. I felt I was there.
"Didn't I tell you, it's a great book? Must be, since even our daughter agrees with me. Keep writing." Priscilla Main, author.
"To understand Overland Park writer Rolland Love, think Mark Twain." Nick Kowalczyk, The Kansas City Star.
Amazon Kindle —Featured Author Review— “Rolland Love’s writing transfigures his Ozark Mountains stories into a series of fantastic tales Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer could have only dreamed of.”
“Glad to hear River's Edge a sequel is in the works. I read Blue Hole to my boys this summer on a gravel bar on Current River, really spooked them for a while! This is a Great book.” Jim McCarty, Editor - Rural Missouri Magazine
“Mark Twain would have loved this excellent adventure of two brothers. Doc has disappeared and it’s up to Tommy (15) and Dub (12) to go to the Blue Hole and see if they can find him. This is a story about growing up. About facing your fears and standing up to them and about doing the right thing even when everything inside you wants to turn and run. This story has everything. The dreaded Conner brothers, Buzzard Thompson, ghost, snakes, cave, bats and dead bodies everywhere. I thoroughly enjoyed every page of this masterfully constructed story.” Jonathan David Masters, Freelance Reviewer
"Rolland Love writers in the Mark Twain vein. Excellent storyteller who does not rely on graphic language or sex to cover up a weak story line. Blue Hole is a fast-paced page-flipper of a read.” Molly Martin, Scribes World
