My review:

4/5 Stars

~I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review~

This was a quirky and informative guide of Tofino that covered just about everything from how to get there, to the history of the towns and landscape, and how to blend in with the local ranging from topics of conversation to how to dress. Before this book, I’d never heard of Tofino, but this guide made me interested to possibly go one day…with a copy of this book in hand of course.

My biggest pet peeve with this book would be the formatting, and that’s where it lost a star. Usually I don’t rate a book based on this, and it’s definitely nothing against the author because it’s a wonderful book, but about 15% of the way through the ebook, the writing becomes vertical instead of horizontal making it almost impossible to read that entire section. There were a few other places that had font that threw me off, and it was very distracting from the book.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
