Follow Me Home by D. K. Hood

My review

Another great mystery-police procedural by author D. K. Hood. It took me some time to start liking the story as the initial chapters described how the paedophiles lured, kidnapped, and abused 13/14 year old children for years and killed them. That turned my stomach upside down.

Once the team of detectives from the Black Rock Falls Sheriff’s department Jenna and Kane make their appearance along with ME Wolfe and Rowley, the story flows like a murder mystery, albeit the murders of these abusers by a Vigilante killer.

I was supporting the Vigilante more in this book!!

A good hard hitting story by author D. K. Hood, the story, flow, pace, characters are great. The police procedural works well with autopsy findings and forensics.

But I couldn’t really get into the story as the topic was gruesome, and I was told about the abusers’ part of the story too, their plans, their kidnappings, holding children in cages… Eeeeuuu I could just cry here😢😭

The investigation and the characters captured by attention, the Vigilante made me root for her, hence the 4 star rating!!

I received an ARC from NetGalley and publisher Bookouture, and this is my honest and unbiased opinion.

My rating : 4 stars

Book blurb

The body of Amos Price lies in a pool of blood on the polished floor of an otherwise empty house in the small town of Black Rock Falls. With no signs of a break in, and no clues left at the scene, Detective Jenna Alton is at a loss.

But as the team begins to unpick the life of the reclusive victim, they discover a disturbing link between Amos and the disappearance of several young girls in the county going back years.

Days later, Ely Dorsey’s body is found in a remote motel on the outskirts of town. Jenna fears not only that the murders are connected to the missing girls, but that the killer hasn’t finished yet.

As Jenna tries to work out who will be next, the killer suddenly starts sending her deputy, David Kane, messages. Is she being taunted? Or does the murderer want to be caught? And will Jenna discover who’s behind these killings before more people die?

    1. Don’t… Not for you… I had my stomach twirling and hurling the whole time because what the abusers do is shown to us… I had to force myself to forget it.


    2. Arrow is a different vigilante not this… Not for you… You have children, don’t read. I have asked the publishers to at least write a trigger warning.


  1. Thanks for the warning. Reader beware. How is your Sunday going? I’m working through the final edits on Healer today (thanks for your feedback–very helpful). I’m leaving you another testimony on Goodreads today. 🙂

    1. Really? You are such a darling. With your review on Goodreads my post will come up in the list. I am allowed to post only once a month. So my post is like so far down. Hehehe ♥️💜 all my live to you


  2. I might sit this one out, even though it sounds like a great read. I have a bad habit of letting these types of things stay with me for a long time. But great review!

  3. Wow. I feel very intrigued and uncertain at the same time. This book’s sounds really great, and usually I can stomach these things, but I’m not sure I want these images in my head after reading it… I think this is going to be a mood reading for me. Definitely not for times when I’m emotional or stuff…

  4. Yep, I’m totally with you on this one. I didn’t want them searching for the vigilante at all since there wouldn’t be a need for one if the cops had done their job to begin with.

      1. Ah yes, I do remember thinking that too and went back and double checked the blurb. I have a habit of forgetting what I’ve picked up sometimes too and being surprised when I start reading.

    1. Same here… I had to read so many cute fun books to delete the mental pic.
      I had asked author about no trigger warning. She said she just wanted to warn everyone of danger of net. Sighhh

      1. I know!! I’ve been really busy. Lots going on, so I haven’t been reading as much as I’d like 🤬, and I’m falling behind on my emails so I’m trying to catch up on reading posts. 😔 Also, it’s so hot here!! And my body HATES the hot weather and the humidity so I haven’t been feeling well. But….life goes on. I just do the best I can, you know🤷🏽‍♀️

        How you? You’re so funny. 😂
