I did a LOT of internal screaming while reading this book!
Oh Lydia Palmer, I could literally shake you!
Miranda Rijks creates a sublime mix of tension in her books and always love reading them. In Roses Are Red we follow the unfortunate Lydia Palmer who – despite being a strong woman and a hard working entrepreneur – falls down a virtual rabbit hole of bad decisions.
I took advantage of the current Lockdown and devoted the vast majority of the day to reading Roses Are Red, I didn’t intend to but I couldn’t but the damn book down… I just had to keep turning the pages!
I warn you, you will need a comfy chair, several cups of tea and a good few clear hours for when you start this book you won’t be stopping until the bitter end.
My thanks to @MirandaRijks #InkubatorBooks @damppebbles #damppebblesblogtours for letting me be a part of this blog tour.
