New York Times bestselling author Joy Fielding returns with MAD RIVER ROAD, a sexy, suspenseful novel of murder, romance, and revenge. After spending a year in prison, Ralph has explicit plans for his first night of freedom: tonight, someone will be held accountable. He goes to murderous lengths to learn the address of his former wife-the woman he blames for his fate, and has sworn vengeance against. Determined to bring her to his idea of justice, Ralph's next step is to travel from Florida to Ohio to find his ex-wife's house on Mad River Road. Also in Florida, Jamie Kellogg wakes from an agonizing nightmare of her mother's funeral, and assesses her life: a twenty-nine-year-old woman in a dead-end job, with an ex-husband in Atlanta, a married lover in the hospital, and a virtual stranger in her bed. But this stranger is everything the previous men in her life weren't: tender, attentive and adventurous. After convincing Jamie to quit her miserable job and ditch her judgmental, perfectionist sister, he proposes a romantic getaway. While Jamie wonders if this thrilling man might finally be her Prince Charming, they plan a road trip to visit his son, who lives with his mother on a street called Mad River Road. As riveting and beguiling as Joy Fielding's previous novels, including LOST, WHISPERS AND LIES and PUPPET, MAD RIVER ROAD is a novel about courage, truth and the need to trust one's instincts.

I was looking for a thriller that would keep me on the edge of my seat. This wasn't it.
It was fairly predictable with one of the characters being way too gullible. That was annoying.

If you are interested in reading about self-indulgent women who repeatedly make very serious judgement errors you might enjoy this story. I am reading it to the end because I am hoping they will be able to redeem themselves...don't know yet. Well, I finished the story even though it was depressing how a woman lets herself become a victim and not do anything to escape. The book reviewer seems to think it is a story about an ex-con, but, IMO, it is a story about women, the men in the story are incidental.

The book was okay – but not one of my favorites.
