Book Review – Roses Are Red by Miranda Rijks @MirandaRijks #BookReview #BookBlogger #thriller

My fingers zipped through the pages as I read the rip-roaring thriller from beginning to end in less than two hours. Author Miranda Rijks could garner my complete attention with this sweet little number.

Adam died… Or rather he was accidently electrocuted, leaving his widow Lydia a boatload of money. Entered Patrick from the online dating, and the two got married before I could even blink. I knew how that was going to go, didn’t it? Things happened with Lydia in her business and personal life.

Peppered with clues the author kept plying my curiosity on. Naive was this babe Lydia where I did want to poke her with the knitting needles she did her crafting with, to bring her into the world of reality. But I restrained myself. What would be the fun in that? I could gauge the trouble long before she could. Took her some time, I tell ya, to realize the truth. And then the plot went rocking when the rose-tinted glasses came off. Shocking reveals, I must say.

The story was well written, it appeared familiar, but then so was the heart pounding thrill I got from reading it. I liked the bubbles of excitement that tickled the back of my throat, a mark of a solid thriller.

Suspense was well weaved. The entire credit went to the author for it was her writing that kept me completely stuck in the murky depths of the story. A fun breakfast read!!

I received a free ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

All my reviews can be read here

She wanted a second chance at happiness. She got a first-class ticket to hell.

Lydia Palmer seems to have it all – a thriving business, a beautiful house, a picture-perfect husband and two wonderful kids. But things are different behind closed doors – Lydia is desperately unhappy and wants a divorce. Then, shockingly, her husband Adam dies.

When her grief eases, Lydia starts online dating and almost immediately meets Patrick. Handsome, successful, loving, he’ll make the perfect second husband.

But is Patrick too good to be true? Can you really find prince charming online?

These are questions Lydia is forced to ask when her world begins to collapse. First, the police say Adam may have been murdered. Then her daughter turns against her, her business disintegrates…

Lydia is convinced that someone is trying to destroy her happiness. She’s wrong. They want so much more than that…
