The best Kindle Women in Red First I want to thank Sage with Sage’s Book Tours for recommending Women in Red to me! I had mentioned to her that I was looking for more psychological thriller books to review and she suggested this one to me. I took one look at the gorgeous cover & immediately I knew I wanted to read it, once I read the synopsis I knew I just HAD to read it! A psychological thriller that was centered around a dance troupe sounded fascinating and it actually made me think of the movie Black Swan, which I loved.This is a sensuous thriller, one in which Jordan Rosenfeld thoroughly explores the often similar dynamics between dance and family life. Women in Red is the story of Stella Russo, a single mom whose dance career was put on hold in order to raise her musical prodigy daughter and to take care of her disabled mother who was once a brilliant dancer herself. When a mysterious man walks into Stella’s life offering a chance to make her dream of becoming a professional dancer come true she falls right under his spell. Stella is thrust into the enigmatic world of a dance troupe that’s filled with secrets and lies. Soon she finds herself having to confront her own troubled past before she loses everything and everyone that means the most to her.Women in Red is a beautifully written story, I was sucked into this fascinating world I knew virtually nothing about! I became so lost in the complex characterizations and tantalizing exploits that I forgot the story was first and foremost, a thriller. When the twists started to unfold I was caught off guard and it thrilled me even more, adding to my enjoyment of this novel. Usually I read psychological thrillers in a way that I’m constantly searching for clues and red herrings so this was a completely new reading experience for me and one that I enjoyed very much! I would absolutely recommend Women in Red for fans of dark, psychological thrillers; trust me when I say that you won’t be disappointed!! This is the first book I’ve read by Rosenfeld and I was so impressed that it certainly won’t be my last. In fact I’ve already chosen Night Oracle as my next Rosenfeld read, it’s also a dark psychological thriller but with some paranormal mixed in. Be on the lookout for my review :)Thank you so much to the author, Jordan Rosenfeld and to Sage’s Book Tours for inviting me to participate in the Women in Red Blog Tour and for providing me with a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review!
