5 stars for Bunny Hunt by Margaret L. Carter #fantasy #springtime #easterfiction #bookreview #bookrec

Title: Bunny Hunt

Author: Margaret L. Carter

Genre: Contemporary Fantasy, Springtime Fiction


Book Blurb:


Melanie, a professional doula struggling to conceive a baby of her own, has a strange encounter at a neighborhood Easter egg hunt. After she rescues a wild rabbit from a runaway dog and the animal seemingly changes into a heavily pregnant, human-size rabbit woman, Melanie convinces herself she saw only a woman in a costume. But that same night a desperate plea for help sounds inside her head. In response, she undertakes a trek that feels like a dream—until it becomes urgently real, forcing her to stretch to the limits of her training and beyond. What reward will she win if she succeeds?


My Review:


Can one simple act of kindness propel Melanie on a mystical journey to unknown places? Bunny Hunt is not your average book. It’s not technically romance as the couple is already together. I would call this Easter fantasy. The premise is original and captured my attention from the start. The characters, especially Melanie, are well-written and easy to relate to. Bunny Hunt is the perfect springtime read.


Let’s dive into the world-building. Margaret L. Carter takes a simple event like an Easter egg hunt and puts a creative spin on it. She creates a world that’s imaginative yet rooted in reality.


The narration is both descriptive and emotional. Melanie is struggling with conceiving a child and her emotions splash across the pages. The narration is very detailed so the reader can immerse themselves into the story.


The characters are well-written. As the main character, Melanie drives the story. Everything is seen through her eyes, as it should be. I connected with her right away. My heart rode a roller coaster as I experienced everything went through.


A touching springtime story, Bunny Hunt will move you.


My Rating: 5 stars

Author Biography:


Reading Dracula at the age of twelve ignited Margaret L. Carter’s interest in a wide range of speculative fiction and inspired her to become a writer. Vampires, however, have always remained close to her heart. Her first published book was an anthology of vampire stories she edited, Curse of the Undead. Her work on vampirism in literature includes Dracula: The Vampire and the Critics, The Vampire in Literature: A Critical Bibliography, and Different Blood: The Vampire as Alien. She holds a PhD in English, and her dissertation contained a chapter on Dracula. In fiction, she has written horror, fantasy, and paranormal romance on vampires, werewolves, Lovecraftian entities, and other “monsters.” Her stories have appeared in various webzines and anthologies, including several of Marion Zimmer Bradley’s Darkover and Sword and Sorceress volumes. Her vampire novels include Dark Changeling and its sequel, Child of Twilight, now available in an omnibus edition, Twilight’s Changelings, as well as several vampire romances. With her husband, Leslie Roy Carter, a retired naval officer, she co-authored a fantasy series beginning with Wild Sorceress. Her recent novellas include a Christmas paranormal romance, Chocolate Chip Charm, and a spring-themed contemporary fantasy, Bunny Hunt. Her most recent novel, Against the Dark Devourer, is a dark paranormal romance with Lovecraftian elements. She and Les, who live in Maryland, have four children and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
