Book #84 Read in 2015
Blood Red by Wendy Corsi Staub
This is the first in a new trilogy and it is a book that will keep readers engaged from start to finished. Set in a town in the Hudson Valley--in theory not that far from where I live--called Mundy's Landing, there seems to be a serial killer targeting redheaded women. Who is his true target? Rowan, an elementary teacher and a redhead, has her own worries....her former neighbor, with whom she almost had an affair with years ago, seemingly has returned to her life by leaving her little gifts as a way to remind her of their time together. Will she lose her perfect husband and marriage if she confesses after all these years? Will the killer hit close to home for Rowan?
There are many layers to this mystery, some of which I figured out and some that kept me guessing to the very end. The characters were complex and interesting. The setting intrigued me since it mentioned places that I am familiar with....Catskill, Albany and Saratoga being just a few. I will continue this series. I received a copy of this book from the Amazon Vine program in exchange for a honest review.
