Blog Tour: Red Stick Diaries by @uplandpublish #review

Fiction / Political Drama
Date Published: March 1, 2015

A criminal drama that reveals the power and control that state and local justice system has over its residents. A young woman finds herself enthralled in a romantic love affair after rebuilding her life from a previously traumatic relationship. She soon learns that the man of her dreams is abusive, controlling and untouchable. He uses his network to enable his behaviors while he finds his next victims. Betrayal is a page directly from the diary of one of his victims.

The first thing to stick out to me was the cover. It is a very eye catching book cover. Next up when choosing a book is the synopsis, and I found the way that the synopsis gave me just enough information while captivating me with what the story was about drew me to it. 

I think this novel really connects to anyone who has dealt with abuse. It chronicles it from the new and wonderful feeling of love and lust to finding out he is not everything she thinks. The fact that he is a serial abuser really took this to another level. That brought his work into it and how he found his victims. 

This is a powerful first installment and I am excited to see what Diamond Ryan has for us next.
