"To understand Overland Park author and storyteller Rolland Love, think MARK TWAIN." Nick Kowalczyk, The Kansas City Star

“Rolland Love is a master storyteller. His Ozark stories always end well and leave the reader with a sense of well-being. His MARK TWAIN style of writing is enjoyed by all ages.” Judith Bader Jones, author of Delta Pearls and Moonflowers on the Fence.

“I have read a number of Rolland Love’s stories set in the Ozark Mountains and they are all nostalgic, and entertaining. I would recommend his writings to parents who want to show their children the pure joy of living experienced by kids growing up in a simpler place and time".

My First Camping Trip in the Ozark Mountains
I was eight years old the first time I camped in the Ozark Mountains. Dad and I pitched our tent on a gravel bar at the Jacks Fork River. At night sat around the campfire with a full moon overhead. I was lulled to sleep by the jug-a-rum croaking of a bullfrog in a slough. Many camping trips have come and gone since that summer long ago, but none so memorable as the first one—just me and Dad, swimming, fishing, and exploring the river for three whole days, seeing nary another soul.

River’s Edge is a SEQUEL to Blue Hole ... Two mystery suspense novels set in the Ozark Mountains that are enjoyed by all ages. The story crept out of me when my brother Dub and I took my grandsons Nick and Jake on a camping trip. I could never have imagined that we would relive the horror of a murder committed at the Blue Hole the last time Dub and I were there in 1949.

Smashwords book reviews by Rolland Love

  • The Leveler on Dec. 14, 2011

    "The Leveler" reminded me a lot of John Sandford's earlier "Prey" books. Filled with tension, McLaughlin's book will keep you on the edge of your seat." I've read The James Charade by McLaughlin as well and I can hardly wait for him to finish book #3. You, Mr. Jim, are a word wizard and literary master!
  • The James Charade on Dec. 14, 2011

    “The James Charade is a great book and will make a great movie! Your style is so much like Lawrence Sanders I thought he had been resurrected. You promised to make me laugh out loud and I did so many times. Keep up the good work, I look forward to more of your five star stories in the future. Great that you're writing a 3rd novel!”
