Roses are Red is touted as a psychological thriller; however, in my honest opinion, it’s more of a train wreck.
The premise of this book is the main character Lydia Palmer’s unfaithful husband Adam is murdered. A few months after he dies, she’s out trolling the internet looking for a replacement.
Now, this book started to have some potential. An investigation to the murder of Adam is launched. You get maybe one to two chapters regarding the investigation where Lydia is being questioned as a possible suspect.
After that, the book becomes a disgusting romance novel where it vanishes into a sea of Lydia trolling the internet for a boyfriend.
So she finds this one guy who seems perfect, they get married (after 6 months after meeting), blah blah blah. It isn’t until the book is almost over where the murder investigation is brought up again by her new husband Patrick. Patrick puts the thoughts into her head that her business partner Ajay is the one who murdered her husband. Heck, it seems logical since Adam was having an affair with Ajay’s wife before he was murdered.
This book touts it has a twist you won’t see coming. I hate to break the news, but I saw it coming a mile away. This book had the most predictable ending ever. There was no twist. I really would like my .99 cents back.
You can purchase this book at Amazon. It seems to be an Amazon self-published exclusive book.
Bloomingful peach rating
Although, I didn’t care for this book, you may actually like it. This book was rated 3.98 on Goodreads and 4 stars on Amazon. Maybe I was just expecting more from this book then it actually delivered.
