He Started It by by Samantha Downing @smariedowning @BerkleyPub

It’s here!!! Get it today!!! I think this is one not to missed and I hope it’s one you will join me in my saying “Hot Diggity Dang that was good!”

Giddy up my friends, fasten your seat belts and join this delicious wacky and entertaining road trip from hell with this family!! If a family road doesn’t already sound like fun or maybe a nightmare, involve money and a bunch of twisted, unlikable, greedy and unreliable characters with secrets, and it takes it to a whole new level of madness.

When Beth, Porta & Eddie’s wealthy grandfather dies, he sends them on a cross country road trip to their inheritance with a few conditions for them to fulfill. Samantha Downing adds some high tension by creating a setting that added dynamics to the characters and story. She cleverly adds some fun and entertainment to the story that we all can relate to by adding one of the conditions the sibling must stop at every tourist trap. I cringed with every stop but couldn’t help but chuckle to myself with every scene. Perfectly paced throughout the story, Beth reveals secrets from a past road trip, adding more depth to the present road trip.

I loved Beth and her snarky voice, and I wanted to high five her with that snarkiness and Samantha. Even though the family drama is high here, it’s kept fresh and exciting and creates some great suspense throughout the story. The characters are interesting unlikable, and I found myself rooting for different characters at different times and going back and forth with my thoughts on them.

The title is clever, interesting and I was intrigued by it right from the start and had to think about it and then realized just how cleverly fitting it is to the story. And of course, that cover, how great is that cover. I love it!!

While I found this one to be a slow build-up to that exciting showdown between these siblings, it was a thrilling and entertaining page-turner for me. The short chapters keep the pace fast and engaging to keep me reading just one more chapter.

I enjoyed the twists and turns along this road trip right up to the final ones that left me saying “Hot Diggity Dang” I highly recommend!!

Thank you to Elisha from Berkley Pub for sending me my copy!!

    1. I think this one would be a good thriller for you! With all the shuffling around my family makes me do with my books I couldn’t find it to take a picture of it but I do have it here somewhere.
