Editorial Reviews

Goodreads - DiAnn D.
I love this novella which follows book one, Scent of a White Rose by Tish Thawer. After being introduced to several characters in book one, you get to read about the relationship between heroine Rose and her mother. If you have read book one, you know what happened to Rose's mother so this peek into their former relationship is so bittersweet. The reader also gets to experience the first date between Rose and Christian which evolves into the beginning of their romance. Another excellent story.

    I love this novella which follows book one, Scent of a White Rose by Tish Thawer. After being introduced to several characters in book one, you get to read about the relationship between heroine Rose and her mother. If you have read book one, you know what happened to Rose's mother so this peek into their former relationship is so bittersweet. The reader also gets to experience the first date between Rose and Christian which evolves into the beginning of their romance. This novella definitely answers some questions the reader might have had after reading book one; just started book two, Blood of a Red Rose. Another excellent story by Tish Thawer!

    Blood of a Red Rose takes place about 4 months after Scent of a White Rose. And again we see the story through multiple first person narratives. I've not read many authors that use this style of writing but it works when it's written well and Tish does a great job at keeping each characters' voice separate. Also the use of the multiple narratives gives the story a more "rounder" feel to it.

    We join Rose after the events that took place SWR where she and Christian are in hiding after Rose killed someone in self defense. Rose has not seen or spoke to her father or friends in 4 months. Everyone is worried sick about her not knowing where she is and how she is doing.

    Rose is keeping secrets from everyone in her life from her father about not telling him where she is to Christian and not telling him what she is. She is caught between a rock and hard place; wanting to have the happily ever after with the man she loves and knowing that they can never have it.

    Christian feels Rose is unhappy and pulling away. He is desperate to get them back to their happy place but he doesn't know what to do, until he gets some help from an unlikely source.

    Then there is Jeremy, Rose's father. He is living in his own world of secrets and heart ache. He misses Rose and feels a little guilty at having found happiness with his girlfriend so soon after his wife's death. But Jeremy soon finds out that not all is what it seems in his life.

    Tish Thawer does another great job at putting a twist on the vampire story and builds on a great debut series. The war between vampires and demons is heating up and I can't wait to read the last book in the trilogy after the cliffhanger that Thawer leaves us with. Luckily I only have to wait to September to get the next installment, Death of a Black Rose.

    I had the honor and the pleasure to be a part of the blog tour o

    I had the honor and the pleasure to be a part of the blog tour of the first book in this trilogy: Scent of a White Rose by Tish Thawer, a few months ago. I totally fell in love with the characters, the action, the writing style, the plot (was so awesome, like some special new twist at every turn, couldn't ask for more), the vampires (of course) and more specifically: Christian, who's a handsome gentlemen, sexy, yeah super-hot vampire. Gimme, Gimme! I really liked reading about a new kind of vampire’s legends and where they come from. You know, when you read something about vampires, you want to land in a new world and find out new vampire specie! But the author can't remake everything. I love the fact that these vampires can't go into sunlight. Typical, but in the same time, totally vampiric! I enjoy discovered new myths about them. Tish Thawer gives the reader a brand new turn around about the old school type of vampires and I think it's what I love the most about this series (oh and Christian too...) :P Anyway, Roses and Thorns really push the readers into the deep of the very first meeting/encounter between Me and Christian, Oh sorry I mean Rose and Christian... until the begin of Scent of a White Rose (first book in the Rose Trilogy).

    Since I read the first book, I already knew the characters and the author didn't put all her energy to reintroduced Rose and Christian or even the surrounding (thank you), so if you want to start this trilogy, you MUST begin with the first book. Since you may also discover/read about some spoilers from the first book in Roses and Thorns, you really should read them in order. Anyway, where's the fun reading a trilogy in disorder????

    Tish Thawer provides a new world around the vampire story and knows how to keep the readers hanging on. I could feel all the anguish from Christian and the fear that Rose may not call him back: OMG I had butterflies in my belly when Christian answered the phone call for the first time! Well for the rest of this review, I would have to give out some spoilers and I hate to do so!

    A must read

    I wasnt certain at first until i got to the 2nd page i then could not put this book down it just keeps you so interested that you just keep saying a little more and then you keep reading as it has you captured and makes you feel you are in the actual story. It makes you hungry for the next one. Love Tish's slant in each of her books

    Roses & Thorns is the perfect follow up to the first book in

    Roses & Thorns is the perfect follow up to the first book in the Rose Trilogy, Scent of a White Rose. In this short but heart-warming novella we get a deeper look into Rose and Christian's romance and how it all began. I love that we get both characters' perspectives on their developing romance and how each interacts within their family circles.

    While Rose and Christian's love story touches your heart, the special bond between Rose and her mother Loraine is exceptionally touching. Tish really captures the love and devotion these two share and really tugs at your heart strings with her vivid writing style. Roses & Thorns moves at a quick pace but makes up for it with plenty of details that tie right into the original giving the reader a deeper look into the Rose and Christian's bewitching romance!

    If you're a romantic at heart you'll love this forbidden vampire romance filled with emotion and enchanting characters. Roses & Thorns is a companion to the first book in the series but is so well written it doubles as a prequel (definitely can be read as a stand alone). One thing's for sure, once you step into Tish's captivating world there's no going back!

    ARC Review for Roses & Thorns

    I was honored when Tish Thawer asked if I would review her latest release in the Rose Trilogy. Roses and Thorns is a fast paced short story that should be read after Scent of a White Rose. This book focuses on Rose and Christian’s love story and fills in the blanks of how their romance began. I have lost count of all the things I love about this short story. The imagery she used to describe the tender relationship between Rose and her mother Loraine is breathtaking. It is truly heartwarming and will leave you wanting more. I am not one to give spoilers so you are just going to have to read Roses & Thorns for yourself *huge grin* but I know you too will become enthralled with the magic of Rose’s room. Bravo Tish on drawing me into the world you created. I look forward to reading Blood of a Red Rose, book 2 in the Rose Trilogy. Rose has a lot to explain and I cannot wait to see how she handles it all.
