Publisher: Parliament House Publishing

Author: Beaird Glover


There’s no such thing as Voodoo. At least, that’s what most of the Baptists in Bellin tell themselves. But Seven LaVey knows better.

In a small rural town just outside of Nashville, Voodoo conjures and curses simmer and seethe under the noses of the many who will never know. Seventeen-year-old Seven romanticizes about the meaning of life while held captive as a zombie under the shell of a kiddie pool. He’s counting on the strength – and maybe even love – of a certain redheaded clarinet player to save him. But will she?

Filled with betrayal and revenge, two families struggle with a curse that stretches back to Queen of the Voodoos Marie Laveau in this contemporary Southern Gothic adventure. Prepare for a wildly original twist on the paranormal.

I was given “Blue Bottle Tree” by Beaird Glover from Parliament House Publishing for an honest review and here is my humble opinion.

I have had to put Mr. Glover’s work on “Blue Bottle Tree” on my Did-Not-Finish (DNF) List.  Why? Because I just don’t care for the writing style.  I also don’t feel the story flows all that effortlessly and it’s driving me to not finish the book.  I feel badly for my opinion but it is what it is and I know that not many of you will agree with it.

Overall I have rated this work 1/5 stars.
