The Return of the Pumpkins is a nice little horror short. It follows on from the short story Revenge of the Pumpkins but it can be read on its own as Lacey Lane fills us in on the events that went before. A family brutally murdered and a boy, Peter left with horrendous injuries. We catch up with Peter many years later as he tries to put his live back together in a mental institution. This book mixes sweet young romance as Peter meets Sue, a fellow inmate, with horror as we edge towards the inevitable gory climax. This book was well written and held some surprises. Short and enjoyable.

It has been a while since I reviewed Revenge of the Pumpins, so it was about time I reviewed the follow up. It is FREE on Amazon. I enjoyed this book too and the ending was great. I gave it 4 stars.

This time not a book review but a short story. Read this to the kids at bed time and nightmares will be guaranteed!
Revenge of the pumpkins is a gruesome tale perfect for Halloween. An unsuspecting family is carving up pumpkins for decoration, little knowing that during the witching hour; the poor mutilated vegetables will come to take their revenge. I think even in this age of desensitised children; there will be enough horror here to give them a restless night. Great stuff and free on kindle just now!
