Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
Thank you to Maree Ward-Russell for giving me this book! Can't wait for the next one! :)
As for my review (very first review ever) of Roses at Dusk:
Wow. Where to begin?! M. W. Russell knocked it out of the park with Roses At Dusk! This was a pulse-pounding, nail-biting, edge of your seat, can't put this book down thriller! Trust me, I read a lot of books but this was such a refreshing twist on what is considered the "norm"! From the first chapter you are drawn into a mysterious, seductive world that promises to intoxicate you with forbidden knowledge & dark desires!
Hannah Malcolm just wants a little normality in her life. After the tragic loss of her family, she decides to get out of the public eye and trades in her life in Chicago, for a quieter, less hectic life in Bar Harbor...or so she thinks! She embarks on a journey through life that will have her questioning not only all those around her, but everything she thought she knew about her life, herself and the very fabric of her beliefs. As you join Hannah in her quest, you will meet funny & lovable characters that will entice you to cry, laugh, rage & even gasp for breath with them as the story unfolds & you work towards solving the mystery!
Roses At Dusk is beautifully written, with an engaging plot & lovable characters that will drag you into the deadly beauty of its world. As the book continues it offers detailed character development that will leave you feeling as if you KNOW the "players" personally & leave you captivated right up to the very end where it leaves you desperate for the next book. It offers a refreshing & unique look at an age old discussion. What do you believe?
This is definitely a must read for anyone who enjoys a great book with an amazing plot & sincere characters that have you rooting for them all the way up to its climatic end that just keeps you guessing.... and ready for more!
I HIGHLY recommend this book & it gets 5 stars from me!
