Bring Her Home by David Bell

I'm always on the lookout for a good suspense or thriller and I found both in David Bell's upcoming release, Bring Her Home.

Momma Says 4 out 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐

Bring Her Home is well-written in third person POV with the story being told from the perspective of the main character, Bill Price. It fits nicely into the Suspense and Thriller genres with it's many plot twists and edge of your seat story line. While I found nothing that would be inappropriate for younger audiences, the subject matter is often disturbing. I, personally, wouldn't let my younger teen read this one.

Blurb: Just a year and a half after the tragic death of his wife, Bill Price’s fifteen-year-old daughter, Summer, and her best friend, Haley, disappear. Days later, the girls are found in a city park. Haley is dead at the scene, while Summer is left beaten beyond recognition and clinging to life.
 As Bill holds vigil over Summer’s bandaged body, the only sound the unconscious girl can make is one cryptic and chilling word: No. And the more time Bill spends with Summer, the more he wonders what happened to her. Or if the injured girl in the hospital bed is really his daughter at all.
 When troubling new questions about Summer’s life surface, Bill is not prepared for the aftershocks. He’ll soon discover that both the living and the dead have secrets. And that searching for the truth will tear open old wounds that pierce straight to the heart of his family...

Being a Small Town, Kentucky girl and finding out that this one is set in Kentucky, I was excited about reading it. I wasn't disappointed. The characters are interesting and plain-spoken, the way many of us small town folk can be, and the story is full of twists to keep you on your toes. 

Bill Price is an angry guy. His temper flares quick and often, but given the circumstances, it's understandable. He's also a compelling character. Bill's story takes us on a journey of loss, suspicion, grief, terror, and even hope as past mistakes haunt him and almost everyone is a suspect in his frantic search for answers. 

The book is lengthy, but it's not at all easy to put down. This is one of those stories where you sit down with the intention of reading one or two chapters and look up to find that you've read ten! The story flow and plot is that good. There are a few things in the story that are a bit unrealistic, but it is fiction, after all, and it all works to keep the suspense flowing. 

Overall, Bring Her Home is a gripping thriller, packed with suspenseful plot twists, and a book that I have no problem recommending.

Bring Her Home releases on July 11, 2017 and is available for pre-order at the following links.

Thanks for joining me! I've got a shifter tale loaded on my Kindle for my next read!
