Blogtour: Roses are Red by Miranda Rijks (GIFTED BOOK, REVIEW)

Hello Readers,
Today I am on blog tour for Roses are Red by Miranda Rijks thank you, Emma, at damppebbles for the tour invite and gifted eBook. Usually when I am on tour, I usually do a miniature review but with Roses are Red I couldn’t condense it down i had so much to say. 

This is the first novel from Miranda I have read and I was absolutely hooked and I really enjoyed her writing style. It was easy to get lost in Lydia’s world with the books captivating description of places, characters and relationships, it was impossible to not be sucked in. Given our current situation I need a book that grabs you and pulls you in and this is one of them, it didn’t let me go.  Miranda does a great job keeping the reader engrossed and on the edge of their seat throughout. Roses are Red is a thrilling tale that keeps you on the edge of your seat until the very end.

Lydia and her husband Adam run a successful craft company and have two kids Mia and Oliver and a beautiful house, expensive cars and the wealth to do as they wish. Everything seems pretty sweet and how life should be but not everything is as it seems and Lydia and Adam's marriage is ending. Then Adam’s body is tragically dead (Not a spoiler), she soon finds herself on the polices radar.

Not long after, Lydia meets Patrick through online dating and she quickly falls for him. Remember what people say, if it seems too good to be true it probably is (let's be honest my blog isn’t the place for all the lovey stuff). She can’t believe her luck and it’s not long before he is a big part of her life but things begin to go wrong for Lydia her business and family life all seem to fall apart. DUM DUM DUUUUUUM!!!

 The characters are well written and realistic; especially Lydia’s character you can help but feel sympathetic for her. I liked Lydia and my heart went out to her, but she did frustrate me in a friendly shake some sense into her way. All Lydia wants is to be loved but she is extremely na├»ve but it wasn’t the be-all and end-all of her story. If given the chance I would love to read a sequel and find out more about Lydia’s life following on from the events of this book.

 Roses Are Red is a great book to escape into its fast-paced and will have you hooked as you get swept up in the drama. This book was intense and enjoyable and that the twist at the end. In the end, everything came together perfectly to leave a very satisfying ending but I as I’ve already mentioned I would like a follow-up.

Thank you again Emma for the tour invite
