He Started It by Samantha Downing

Thank you to Berkley Publishing for this gifted book and having me on the He Started It blog tour!

Have you ever been on a road trip?⁣

I love the idea of a road trip thriller!

“Wholly original. Scarily clever. Completely mesmerizing. You will never look at family road trips the same way again.”

—Lisa Gardner, #1 New York Times bestselling author

Add in a super messed up family and the motive to do anything it takes in order to collect a boatload of inheritance money? Genius!⁣

These characters were SO fun to hate. At first you feel for them all – marital problems, childhood issues, all the drama…. but you slowly start to hate them one by one, and start to wonder if any of them deserve the money!

But it is SO fun to find out who sticks it out til the end without bailing and going home, who survives the trip, and who ends up getting the cash!⁣

This is the epitome of a dysfunctional family. All the narrators are pretty unreliable and it is a wild story to say the least!

“A twisted mashup of a family drama and a thriller that you won’t be able to put down.”

—Pop Sugar

Twists come in from every angle and all the directions. So many, that it’s hard to see the next one coming on this road trip from hell, all set up by a seriously sick and twisted Grandpa.⁣

Samantha Downing maps out a trunkload of fun with a license for crazy, taking you on a wild ride that spins you in every direction with nary a stop sign in sight! ⁣

Hit the brakes and grab this one cause it does not disappoint!⁣⚠️

About the Book:

9780451491756Beth, Portia, and Eddie Morgan haven’t all been together in years. And for very good reasons—we’ll get to those later. But when their wealthy grandfather dies and leaves a cryptic final message in his wake, the siblings and their respective partners must come together for a cross-country road trip to fulfill his final wish and—more importantly—secure their inheritance.

But time with your family can be tough. It is for everyone.

It’s even harder when you’re all keeping secrets and trying to forget a memory, a missing person, an act of revenge, the man in the black truck who won’t stop following your car—and especially when at least one of you is a killer and there’s a body in the trunk. Just to name a few reasons.

But money is a powerful motivator. It is for everyone.
