Nancy (The Avid Reader)
Five friends set out for a fun filled day on a ten mile hike in the mountains. Their plans were to spend time together hiking up the mountain to a bridge that only a few people knew about while having a good time. A fun filled weekend of camping and sitting around the fire probably telling each other ghost stories hoping to scare the crop out of each other just having the time of their lives until they no longer were.

They were having the time of their lives when they saw something that they did

On a beautiful summer day, five friends embark on what was suppose to be an adventurous 10 mile hike to a bridge built in the middle of a mountain. A relaxing day turns into a fight for survival as the friends try to escape the terror hunting them in the mountain.
Right away when I began this book, I started getting some 'Wrong Turn' feels. Which gave me a sense of unoriginality. This story is pretty much a cross between the films 'The Hills Have Eyes', 'Wrong Turn', and 'Deliverance'. But as I c

Road is a very interesting 4 star read by (new to me author) Kathy Dinisi.
I've come away with two things after reading this book 1) I've found myself a new author to read and 2) I'm NEVER going hiking in the mountains EVER.
This story gripped me from the start and I couldn't put my kindle down until I had read it all.
I grew up watching horror films and this book had an essence of Wrong Turn to it which I absolutely loved.
It was a real page turner and I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.

If you love a good mystery with thriller, suspense, and horror, then this is your book. I fell in love with Kathy writing shortly after reading her hell bound series snd have been hooked since. Her stories are not too long and not too short. They are gripping and will leave you wanting more. I don't think I want to go hiking anytime soon after reading this. I once again stayed up all night reading a scary story that only gave me goosebumps, but wow, what a great read. ...more

Great story! It keeps you turning the pages and needing to know what's coming. I love the creepy feel and moments of tension. I gave this book four stars for these reasons, otherwise, I would have given it three stars due to the editing this book needs. If you enjoy creepy horror stories, I would still recommend this book and author. ...more

Do you like hiking? If you do you might think twice about going hiking again after reading this. Good, quick and scary read that really makes you wonder what is following you through the woods as you walk.

This would've been five stars but the book needed an editor. The run on sentences and bad formatting of some chapters with my kindle version were distracting. The premise was awesome and truly terrifying. I'm scared of the woods. I could see the book as a horror movie. ...more

A great thriller ride!

Lisa and her friends decide to go on a hike in the mountains to just get away. What they find is not what they expected. Kathy Dinisi is one of my favorite thriller/horror authors. Get ready for a helluva ride!

I received an ARC for an honest review

5 friends on a trip in the mountains turns out to be more than they bargained for. A hike to a bridge, a night of revelations, and a sinister feeling turns out to be something from a horror film. As these 5 friends try and make it back to safety, monsters of the mountains chase and kill them one by one. Who will live? Who will die?

I absolutely loved this horror story. It's something of a Stephen King novel. Horror, death, and mystery. The group of friends ca

I did a beta read for this book and I went in very much looking forward to it because I had read other books by Kathy Dinisi and loved them. This book is the epitome of the thriller genre I absolutely couldn't put it down!! I have a routine with thriller/suspense novels I wait until nightfall and read it in the dark I look for the fear factor and I want to be creeped out. This book definitely gives me the creeps and its fast paced and adventurous and definitely creepy!!! I love it and I will be ...more

I sat down to read a little bit, just a few pages. Nope not going to happen. I read the whole thing.
Kathy is an amazing up and coming author. Her books reel you in, her chase tears are real and could lie next door.
I am not a hiker, but I do love the outdoors, I love nature.
At the beginning I wanted to go climb the hill at the end of the street, at the end I wanted to put a lock on the gate and hunker down.
Read it you won't be sorry!

I very much enjoyed this book. I was given an advance copy to beta read for the author Kathy Dinisi. It was fast paced, it was exciting, creepy and kept me turning the pages. The characters were engaging and fun. The "bad guys" were creepy and disgusting, the story was gory in the right places and it was a complete thrill ride. Another fast paced hit by Kathy!! Loved it :)

This is a different book than one I have come to expect from this author. Her writing style continues to grow. As for the story, she has excellent character development and a very good story line. When i read her books, I get the feeling that I am there witnessing the story and interacting with the characters. Very well done and well worth the read.
Laura  Hernandez (TheVoluptuousBkDiva/YABkDivas)
This author has the talent to write all sorts of genres and this latest read is no exception. This well written story line kept me glued to the edge of my seat from beginning to end as I felt that I was the one fighting to survive this horrendous ordeal and the characters come to life right in front of you. Don't pass up reading this book!! ...more

Road is a great thriller, it sucks you in and you have to find out what's going to happen to these five friends. If you like the creep factor you will definitely enjoy, Road. The bridge, the mountain side, the quiet is all disturbed by murder, mayhem and weird people. Yep grab it if you like to be creeped out. ...more

Definitely a jumpy story

Right from the start Road had my pulse racing. I just knew it was going to get ugly.....just didn't know how ugly. By the end not only was my pulse racing but so was my heart. Not for squeemish readers
