No mother, a deadbeat dad, a foster home, and then a kidnapping.
Easter and Ruby were placed in a foster home after their mother died since their father, Wade, had signed them away many years ago. But now he wanted them back. Wade was bad news all around.
Easter followed all the rules and Ruby followed whatever Easter said. Both girls will steal your heart because of their innocence and sweet ways. Their father will make you worry.
THIS DARK ROAD TO MERCY is told in alternating voices with themes of a mystery to be solved, crimes that were committed, crimes that were being committed, and family dynamics. The book starts out with the main theme being the girls left in a foster home but it heats up when Wade's deeds surface.
Mr. Cash has a smooth, absorbing, detailed style of writing that pulls you in. The suspense of the book begins when Wade decides to do something stupid...well many stupid things.
All of the characters have a lot of charisma that make THIS DARK ROAD TO MERCY a book you don't want to put down. It tells the tale of families, life in a small town, the town's problems, and its police force.
I really enjoyed THIS DARK ROAD TO MERCY which was filled with Southern-style emotion and suspense. Don't miss reading this book. 5/5
This book was given to me free of charge and without compensation by the publisher in return for an honest review.
