Maree Ward Russell's excellent paranormal thriller - Roses at Dusk is a must for any fan of the genre. The author's imagination, combined skilfully with her talent for painting an image, leaves you keenly turning pages and wanting more!
It has been some time since I last ventured into paranormal fiction and did so with relish - the book in no way left me disappointed! The story provides ample surprises with lashings of suspense and an explosive conclusion.
Strong characters, a well thought out plot and well written prose all go to ensure a hunger to devour each line while longing for the next.
Better than a night out at the cinema - I have discovered a rising star of paranormal fiction and cannot wait for her next book!

A Heart Pounding Original:
I must take a moment to catch my breath. Ms. Russell definitely put a spin on evil with this one, and it's hard for me to believe this was her debut novel, although she is not new to writing. The way I hear it she has another novel about to break into the publishing world, with another two works in progress. Wow! Sounds like an author that could keep a reader satisfied to me. Anyway, I must move on and tell you a bit about why my heart is still in my throat and I may or may not be looking over my shoulder right now. And I will try my best not to spoil it for you.
Hannah Malcolm attempts to start her life anew in a slower-paced town. Bar Harbor isn't at all what she was used to in Chicago, but that was the point. She had to find a way to escape, and possibly forget, the horrible memories she had of the death of her family. With the case closed, and no answers found, staying would have only been the end of her sanity.
With a brand new job and a few friends made, Hannah agrees to be dragged against her will to a club with new friend and co-worker, Penny Pilkington. What she found there was Marcus, a guy that any girl in the club or town would have done just about anything just to get his attention. Hannah was shocked by the evident fact that Marcus didn't seem to notice anyone but her.
Marcus' interest seemed to grow even more through the weeks, and Hannah found that she was completely besotted with the devastatingly handsome rogue. Strange things began to happen, but ignoring them was a whole lot easier than facing them and ruining what seemed to be the perfect relationship.
A brutal murder and a serious accident that almost took the life of Penny, had her nerves on end. And she realized when the bruises lasted longer and Marcus' words sounded more possessive than loving, that she may not have been seeing the real Marcus at all. She also realized that the only way to get out of the relationship may cost her her life.
With the help of a friend, and some disturbing discoveries about Marcus' secret life and her own past, she takes the chance and runs.
I can't tell you anymore, because it would spoil it. I highly recommend this book to anyone who craves a little danger in their life. Roses at Dusk will have you dreading the setting sun. It receives 5 stars from me.
