Revenge is worth its weight in gold.

When her father is murdered for a journal revealing the location of a hidden gold mine, eighteen-year-old Kate Thompson disguises herself as a boy and takes to the gritty plains looking for answers—and justice. What she finds are untrustworthy strangers, endless dust and heat, and a surprising band of allies, among them a young Apache girl and a pair of stubborn brothers who refuse to quit riding in her shadow. But as Kate gets closer to the secrets about her family, a startling truth becomes clear: some men will stop at nothing to get their hands on gold, and Kate’s quest for revenge may prove fatal.

I was so excited to read this book, I loved the map inside and the cover got me excited. Overall I enjoyed this book. It gave you a realistic view of the west, no sugar coating in this book, however as it got closer to the end, I felt the it started to get a bit sugar coated and the rawness that I enjoyed it the beginning seemed to loose it’s steam.

Kate was a great MC, I loved how determined she was to avenge her father but I also felt that she was holding back a lot. Jesse and Will were great characters however, I was having a hard time getting them to mesh together. Like, I felt the character build was missing something. I am not sure what was missing but I didn’t connect with them as much as I wanted. I did enjoy them and the story was pretty good. It took a slow pace but as it got closer to the end I started to enjoy it a lot more. I sort of was disappointed with the romance, I sort of wanted it more in the background, I like how the story was going but felt that a little romance would have been fine but somewhere in the middle it sort of switched directions.

Vengeance Road wasn’t a bad book, I actually enjoyed it but it sort of fell flat for me. I think I was looking for a lot more grit and vengeance but I didn’t feel like I got that. I wanted less romance and more old west. If you like romance and gritty westerns you will LOVE this book. 🙂


Thanks for stopping by to check out my review.

Have a great day and Happy Reading!
