This was my first book by her and I was so looking forward to it But I have to say that I was disappointed greatly The plot kept repeating itself over and over and there were so many bad people and then a quick final twist that left you thinking what?? It could have been a good short story but to waste all that time reading a book that just doesnt draw you in was a disappointment I will read another and give her another try but couldnt recommend this one

    Dark Horse - Won't Be My Last Hoag Read This review first appea

    Dark Horse - Won't Be My Last Hoag Read

    This review first appeared at Chorley Chronicals!!

    This was my first read by Tami Hoag, and I must say that I wasn't disappointed, so I certainly will pick up more by her in the future.  This was book 1 in the Elena Estes series, and I absolutely will (at some time) seek out book 2 to read! 




    The narrator does an excellent job of not only bringing the characters to life, but also distinguishing the characters throughout the book.  There were quite a few characters to keep up with, but I thought that Beth McDonald did a great job of helping me distinguish which character was which while she was reading.  I wouldn't hesitate to listen to another audio book narrated by Beth McDonald!




    My favorite type of character is a strong, independent female, and I found just that in Elena Estes. That was probably one of my favorite things about this book, Elena's character and her ruthlessness and brutal honesty!  I also couldn't help but fall in love with Molly Seabright, and have nothing but utter dismay and disgust at her mother and step-father! 




    Dark Horse did a great job of making me feel the emotions of the story that I was reading, although it felt like the story did drag on a bit at times, which is why I only gave this book 3 of 5 bookworms!  The plot was suspenseful and was initially difficult to figure out the kidnapper was!  I did enjoy the extra "drama" included throughout the story!  I heard many people complain that they didn't care for all of the horse talk and reference throughout the book, but that didn't bother me a bit, but then again, I love horses!  I just thought it was fitting, giving the kidnapping took place at a pretty prominent stable! 




    Overall, other than the story seeming to move a little slower than I would have liked, I don't have any complaints about Dark Horse and will absolutely eventually get around to reading The Alibi Man, Book 2 in the Elena Estes series, mainly because I loved Elena so much!

    Not that Bad

    I loved all of Tami Hoags previous books and couldn't wait for this one to come out it seemed like forever since she had a book out. I was surprised to read all of these horrible reviews about this book. It is a different departure from her usual style, she uses the first person in the book which put me off. It is a hard book to get into but it picks up about a hundred pages into the book. I wouldn't say it is a bad book, but it is not the authors best book. I enjoyed reading it but I hope she goes back to her original style of writing. Anyone who is a fan of the author will enjoy the book if they give it a chance.

    Not so great!

    I love Tami Hoag and I have read all her books, but Dark Horse was very different from her usual writing. There was no real passion in it. I think the romance part of her novel is what makes a thriller more exciting!!!! This one had none of her usual romance in it. I was disappointed....
