This has to be one of my favorite books that I've read this year. The book starts out as most mob books do with a killing but this book is so much more than a mob book. The book is about a survivor who hit rock bottom before getting it all together. The characters are developed and most readers will take sides from the very beginning but is everything as it should be. I have to give the book 5 stars because of the didn't see that one coming at the end of the book. I was given an ARC for an hones ...more

Wow! Angela Bennett has written such an engaging read that I found it hard to put down. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters and the entire storyline. Although I picked up on a few breadcrumbs that Angela wrote into the story, everytime I picked one up, there was a twist to the storyline. Not til right before the end did the big BAM happen and it was perfect. I'm glad this was the first of Angela Bennett's books that I have read and I look forward to reading more of her work. ...more

I read Dark Road Home as part of an October 2018 Goodreads Psychological Thriller book of the month club read. I was impressed with the character development and flow of Dark Road Home. The book is filled with intrigue, suspense, and family dynamics. The book centers around a newly certified Private Investigator that receives a call from help from a teenage boy. This one phone call sets in motion the entire book. The reader is taken on a joy rode. Along the ride, we find the true reason why the ...more

This book was interesting. I found it had good characters and a sturdy plot and it was enjoyable. There were a couple of parts where it was slightly difficult to get through but the story as a whole helped with powering through those particular parts.

With Dark Road Home, Angela Bennett has created a suspense story that starts slowly to portray past events as well as several important characters, if they are good or bad can be learned as the story proceeds.

Told in different pov's, this story will keep you white knuckled as you grip every page. This story had my heart racing as I was thrown curve ball after curve ball of surprises. The writing blew me away at how original it was and how the scene was painted out before you. Bennet kicks butt with this gritty crime novel and packs a punch of a story. Belle's character had my heart wrenching and yearning to reach through the pages and hug her for how much she goes through. She is such a strong charac ...more

I love it when the suspense carries through the end. I enjoyed so much that there was a build up to an exciting conclusion - so I was engaged all the way through the book. I loved Belle as a strong character where - I ended up relating to and caring about her. The psychological aspect of the story was amazing. Thought provoking and a good read.

3.5 stars for me. I found some of the writing hard to read but in the end I enjoyed the book. I felt for Belle but also for Joseph, Os, and EJ. I look forward to Belle’s next adventure and hope to see her really develop as a PI.
