    1. I loved reading this book so much.

    2. I liked the story. It held my interest even though I had a couple of problems with it. I liked a lot of the characters. The ones I didn't I wasn't suppose to. The story moved along at a fast pace and was filled with intrigue. Which brings me to my problems with it. Point of view changed a few times during the story. I can handle that when the author keeps me in the know. With this story, they changed with no real warning or break. Several times I was jarred out of the story by the abrupt change [...]

Little did she know that her fiance had ties to all kinds of low life criminals - and now they are after her and her estate. While the story itself is a real roller coaster ride, the author still manages to slow things down long enough to take in the scenes of the Charleston area and the Florida coast. I thoroughly enjoyed this book from begin [...]

    5. I started reading this romance thinking I would enjoy a soft love. However, this book is more than a gentle romance, it is also a great mystery and thriller.

I liked it.Based on a five-star rating, I give it five stars!1) Buy from the author in the future? Yes2) Did it keep me intrigued? Yes3) Story line adventurous, mysterious, and believable?

    6. It is very unusual nowadays to see a romance book without a hint of sex, I guess that will be very appealing and refreshing, or a total turn off!As our main characters life unravels, death and deception all around, she manages to surround herself with good people, who all together pull through the mess and create a much better life. It kept me hooked with the murder mystery and adventure, but it still felt warm and relaxed throughout - a nice combination!

    7. A fast-paced mystery romance with twists and turns for Kate McClellan, who finds herself in the middle of intrigue after her parents die in a car accident. Overnight Kate becomes an heiress discovering family secrets riddled with half-siblings, intrigue, greed, and lost memories. I liked this book, it was an enjoyable read.

    11. I was given a free copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.The Long Road Home by Carolyn M. Bowen is a thriller/mystery novel.

    12. This is a good story with a couple of interesting twists.Kate has lost her parents and was thinking of marrying a man named Ken. Then she finds out he's not the man she thought and Kate heads to Geneo, Florida to her family's home, to get away. Things aren't as they seem and Kate's life is going to be turned upside down. The author has a good writing style that makes for a quick read. She also adds just the right amount of mystery, past and present to make this a book to pick up.

    13. (The author graciously gave me a free copy in exchange for an honest review.)This week I had the opportunity to read Carolyn M. Bowen’s book "The Long Walk Home." It’s rare that I don’t finish a novel, but I must be honest and admit that I didn’t finish this one. The description sounded intriguing enough; so much so that I was genuinely looking forward to reading it. However, roughly fifteen pages in, I decided to stop. The main reason is that the novel reads like a first draft manuscrip [...]

    14. I received a copy of 'The Long Road Home' in exchange for an honest review.  Someone wants Kate McClellan dead. There are plenty of suspects: her ex-fiancé, a half-brother she didn't know of, a family enemy with ties to terrorism, and closer to home, her recently deceased father's business partners.  This book is rich in detail, with twists and turns starting on the first page and continuing throughout.A complex plot, sprinkled with romance and loaded with southern charm, this book is an en [...]

    15. I was given a free copy for an honest review.Although I didn't love this book, I liked it. The story was fast paced, very detailed and unpredictable. There were parts where it felt quite rushed, but given the fast pace of the book, it can be ignored. The plot didn't lose its relevance (which happens a lot with books like these).But thos book is not without its faults. I couldn't connect with the charecters, and as mentioned before, the story felt rushed.Overall, I feel it was worth a read.

    16. We meet Kate McClellan just as her life is unravelling horribly. Her parents have been killed in a horrific car accident and she's discovered the fiancé that should be supporting her is a manipulative cheat. So Kate decides to take time out from her busy job at an ad agency and flees to the sanctuary of her late Grandmother's plantation in Florida. Welcomed instantly into the close knit community, Kate has little idea that her ex-fiancé is not going to let her go without a fight and hires a pr [...]

    17. Kate McClelan is the heir of a very wealthy lawyer after both their parents die in a car accident. Her life gets completely off track when she leaves her fiancee and it's visited by a private detective who is averting her that she's in danger. This is where her journey into family secrets starts.This is a book that is completely readable in one sitting. The story had me trapped from the beginning to the end and it is very well developed, with only the necessary details about the happenings for t [...]

    18. ** I thank NetGalley for the ARC in exchange for an honest review. **Although the synopsis sounded promising, I couldn’t push past page 58 and so The Long Road Home ended up on my digital DNF pile. It’s a shame because the story has enough potential to become an entertaining novel. Unfortunately, the writing absolutely gets in the way. In essence, the story reads like a report, not a novel. Facts about characters, settings, and events are relentlessly strung together and I had a hard time ke [...]

    19. Disjointed and too rambling with lots of abrupt changes!I gave this book a low rating because, while the storyline was good and the characters interesting, the plot jumped around too much to be really enjoyable. Little bits and pieces that had no prior basis kept jumping out of the woodwork and so much of the story zoomed by so fast that I was left wondering how many details I had missed. Even the end of the book, while anticipated, simply appeared on the last page like Boom, there you go! No wi [...]

    20. There were times where things were 'concluded/wrapped' up too quickly and usually not in the best manner; this book moved at too much of a clipped pace - a lengthier novel would have been able to make more room for plot planning, character development and background story to the characters. One thing I will say is that Ken Stanlan wasn't a nice character; though that piece of the story was a bit of a loose end as well. I got a copy in exchange for an honest review.

    21. This is a complex story involving murder, mystery and romance. It is full of emotions and twists and turns that will keep you wondering if Kate will be able to cope with all that is happening to her and her family.I felt that the plot and characters were well developed. Even though this was a murder mystery, I felt relaxed while I was reading it. It is a good story to read while in front of a fireplace with a glass of wine or hot chocolate. I as given this book and I enjoyed reading it.

    22. Opportunists lurk all around Kate McClellan like vultures over ripe carrion. When everyone wants something, who can you trust?This was a fast read and a page turner. Although fiction, I think it highlights the darker side of ambition in a very real way.

    23. This is a fast paced mystery - the story line is interesting, though it moved too quickly for me. I would have enjoyed more depth to the plot. I also would have liked to get to know the characters better by having them more fully developed.I received a copy of this book in a giveaway.
