The Long Road Home: Romantic Murder Mystery by Carolyn M. Bowen

Kate’s life was in turmoil after the death of her parents. She’d always been protected and sheltered by them. Suddenly she finds herself with a conniving fiancé living under her roof, a powerful businessman with terrorist ties from across the ocean trying to kill her and more family secrets than most American politicians. She was also unaware that a half-brother she knew nothing of was about to enter her life. Her situation was getting precarious right at the moment she was least able to cope with it.


“A fast, riveting mystery thriller you’ll not soon forget!”

“A complex plot sprinkled with romance and loaded with southern charm!”

“The action-packed plot of this novel delivers a powerful, long-lasting punch.”

“You’ll be instantly taken on a journey with Kate as love, lust, and revenge, money and murder show their faces.”

“Bowen’s characters are credible and well-defined, especially Kate, Jake, AJ, and Nap. Bowen’s plot is taut and twisty, and she gives plenty of red herrings for armchair sleuths. The Long Road Home is highly recommended.” 5 Stars – Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers’ Favorite
