Dead Drift Book Summary

Emmy has always been impulsive. She is no longer a minor and has aged out of foster care. When her best friend, Amber, is the target of a perverted uncle who lives in the basement of her group home, they plan her escape.

They head for Canada, where Amber will be safe and the foster care system can no longer control their lives. They come across a whitewater rafting brochure and decide to take a detour for one last adventure before leaving the country. They have no idea it will be a decision that will forever change their fates.

The rafting town is so far in the middle of nowhere that Emmy’s car radio catches nothing but static. They consider turning around until a truck pulls up, loaded with hot whitewater rafting guides and rubber rafts–just the fun they were looking for. Ignoring every instinct, they turn off the pavement and follow the truck down an isolated dirt road. They end up in Lodell, the town where a girl went missing the previous summer…and she will not be the last.

4.0 out of 5 stars A dark and depressing thriller
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on July 12, 2022

Dead Drift is a very dark, depressing story set in a small town in Oregon. It follows two girls from foster care who run away to avoid the pervy uncle who lives in the group home’s basement. They’re on their way to Canada, eager to start over with new identities. But they take a detour to Oregon after discovering a brochure for a whitewater rafting adventure. The rafting guides are hot, and both girls are looking forward to one last hurrah before heading for the border. Unfortunately for one of them, this adventure will be their last.
I thought this was a really good story. There were a lot of red herrings along the way, and while I had a couple of suspicions about what was going on, the actual reveal of the truth was a bit surprising. And the alternating POVs that offered glimpses into the killer’s thoughts/mind was a nice touch.
This is a thriller that has a very realistic vibe to it. While reading, I could picture these two girls in the small, dusty town, going rafting, hanging out at the bar, etc. The characters are all very real, also. I could relate to both Emmy and Amber in different ways, and someone of the townsfolk felt like people you might actually know in real life.
The only negative for me was the missing quotation marks around dialogue (this happened a few times) and the occasional misspelled word that popped up. But that’s just me being fussy.
If you’re looking for a taut, tense thriller that will ultimately leave you kind of sad, give Dead Drift a read. 4.5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Mystery
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on July 8, 2022

After years in foster care, at 18, Amber is getting her life together. But Emmy, her best friend, is still stuck at the foster house. And with the way their foster father has been acting, Emmy isn’t safe there. So after devising a plan, Amber helps Emmy escape, and they head for an adventure of whitewater rafting. This is the start of their new lives, and they will have a blast.

Romo writes solid characters. Amber is clearly suffering, and after years in foster care, she doesn’t always know what healthy looks like. She latches onto Brian and doesn’t want to let go. She’s clingy and constantly worried that he will up and leave her. That’s been the pattern her entire life. But things have gotten serious, and she needs him more than ever.

This is a fun story. I liked how there were alternating points of view and that Romo slowly built the suspense, so you knew something was up, but you weren’t sure where to point the finger. I like the small-town feel and that everyone sticks together. It’s very representative of small-town life. The book ends in such a way that readers won’t feel disappointed, which I thoroughly enjoy. Overall, this is a fun mystery with a bit of romance. It will be interesting to see where Romo takes this series.


4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Summer Psychological Thriller
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on June 15, 2022

This thriller takes you on an adventure made just for the summer, out on the river! Dive into the road-trip of two teenage girls escaping the foster system. According to a note in the back of the book there is going to be a book two so definitely read, review and watch for that one as well!


I thought the way the author gave perks through the killer’s eyes was brilliant. It amped up the fear and anticipation and kept you guessing on just who he was.

A personal thing for me is I don’t love when stories use a lot of I statements. For a long time I wouldn’t read books in first person because of it. I’m learning to appreciate it and when it is done well it fades into the background like it did in this book for me.


It is a common thing in books/movies to have towns overlook things and be oblivious. It’s likely very true of towns in the real world as well. It just really bothers me when no one else is saying something is odd and you’ve had multiple deaths the same way, with more coincidences than just the type of death. It’s realistic so it’s nothing against the author they wrote it true to the world…it just feels like a sad statement on how much we all overlook to keep the status quo.
