✱✱Book Review✱✱ Rattlesnake Road by Amanda McKinney


From bestselling and multi-award-winning author Amanda McKinney comes her most evocative and twisted small-town Mystery Romance...

Welcome to 1314 Rattlesnake Road—the perfect hideaway to escape your past.

After leaving her posh NYC life behind, fashion editor Grey Dalton escapes to the small, southern town of Berry Springs to pick up the broken pieces of her life. On impulse, she purchases a rumored-to-be-haunted house where she finds herself thrown into decade-old murder mystery, and onto the rocky road of recovery and self-discovery. Men are the last thing on her mind—until she meets a tattooed cowboy and a dashing businessman. One will steal her heart, the other, her soul.

Rattlesnake Road pushes the boundaries and blends genres in this raw, emotional, no-holds-barred story.

★ "A dark, edge-gripping emotional read." - Obsessive Reads ★
★ “sexy, suspenseful romance.” - Publisher’s Weekly Review ★
★ "Strong characterization bolsters this profound, romantic tale." - Kirkus Review ★

(Due to serious subject matter and mature content, please be aware that this book might be an emotional trigger for some readers.)

Momma Says: 2 stars⭐⭐

An "evocative and twisted small-town Mystery Romance..." That's what the blurb promises, and maybe it's just me, but I didn't find that in this book. Parts of the story do get graphic, and while it's jarring, that had nothing to do with my feelings about the book. There is also some witty dialogue, and the letters and a couple of elements were creepy, but it wasn't enough to hold me. The pace is very slow, and I didn't like the characters. None of them. Grey has her share of issues and some things are understandable. I can certainly sympathize with her, but she makes some terrible decisions. I feel like this story had so much potential to be a gritty romantic suspense. It just didn't get there. I realize I'm in the minority about this one, but for me, the blurb was much more intriguing than anything I found in the book.
