From New York Times bestselling author Wendy Corsi Staub comes the first in a terrifying new series set in a small town with a sinister secret

The razor's gleaming blade slices effortlessly through skin and tendon, and he relishes the final anguished moments of his prey. There's only one thing he prizes more: their long, silken strands of red hair. But these women are merely stand-ins . . . a prelude to his ultimate victim.

Nestled in New York's Hudson Valley, Mundy's Landing is famous for its picturesque setting—and for a century-old string of gruesome unsolved murders. Rowan returned to her hometown years ago, fleeing a momentary mistake that could have destroyed her family. Life is good here. Peaceful. Until an anonymous gift brings Rowan's fears to life again.

The town's violent history was just the beginning. Soon everyone in Mundy's Landing will know that the past cannot be forgotten or forgiven—not until every sin has been paid for, in blood.

This book was very well done. I have had a review copy of this book for a very long time and really regretting the fact that I didn't read this one a long time ago. I love a good mystery thriller and this book pulled me in right from the start. I had such a good time trying to figure out how everything would come together and who the killer would be in the end. I glad I finally decided to give this book a try. I have to admit that some of my favorite parts of the book were the parts that let us in the killer's head. I liked the fact that we get to meet the killer from the very beginning of the book and even learn his name very early. His identity and everything about him was still a complete mystery to me. The book isn't overly bloody but getting to really see the thought process of this killer really took the story to a new level. Rowan is a teacher and mother of three in the town of Mundy's Landing. She leads a happy life now despite a mistake that she made and put behind her in the past. When a simple package shows up that could threaten everything, she tries to figure out what is going on. Mick, Rowan's teenage son, leads the busy life of a high school boy. He plays a sport at the school and works a part-time job where he is trying his best to be noticed by the pretty teen girl. Rowan and Mick tell the majority of the story along with the killer but we do also get to hear from a couple of police detectives and Rowan's sister, Noreen. There were times in the book that I did wonder where things were leading. Honestly, I couldn't understand why Rowan was making such a big deal about things. I kind of wanted to tell her to just move on but I had a feeling that there would be more to the story and there was. It was really the killer's point of view that helped keep the story moving forward. By the end of the book, I couldn't turn the pages fast enough because I had to know what would happen next. I would recommend this book to others. I liked how all of the pieces of this book came together to tell a very exciting story. This book is the start of a trilogy but I really felt like the story in this book is complete. I am not sure if I will be reading the other installments in this series but I do hope to read more from Wendy Corsi Staub in the future. I received an advance reader edition of this book from HarperCollins - William Morrow via Edelweiss.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher as a part of a book tour for a fair and honest review. A fan of mystery books and thrillers, I jumped at the chance to read and review Blood Red by Wendi Corsi Staub, the first book in her Mundy’s Landing series. Using a small town setting, a series of gruesome murders that took place in the 1600’s and a recent set of killings, Ms. Staub takes us inside the mind of a killer and a woman keeping secrets. While not quite what I was hoping for, this is a book many mystery lovers would enjoy reading. Introducing us to Rowan Mundy, the main character of the story, Ms. Staub quickly provides a quick sketch of “Mundy’s Landing”, the gruesome crimes that are a part of the town’s history, and the person whose plans will once again put this small town in the spotlight. While the mystery of who sent Rowan the “burnt” cookies, how it ties into her past and why she reacts the way she does is well done, I felt as if something was missing. I felt like the story jumped between Rowan’s viewpoint and the viewpoint of “Casey”, another primary character, too much. While there are plenty of secondary characters, only a couple of them are interesting. I especially liked Mick, Rowan’s teenaged son and it was interesting to watch him and Rowan interact – especially since they both shared a medical condition. I also expected a touch of violence and blood but most of that action took place off the page. While I am not into a lot of blood and gore, perhaps a touch of it would have made the “serial killer” aspect of the book more realistic. Will Rowan discover who is behind the threat to her safety before it is too late? Will she be able to keep her family out of danger? You will have to read Blood Red to find out.

Rowan made a choice years ago that is coming back to haunt her, it could possibly put an end to her marriage, and damage her reputation in the eyes of her fellow co-workers and community. She has kept this little secret hidden for fourteen years, but someone has decided it time to let the secret out, and they have set their sights on Rowan and plan to make her matter the cost!! Ms. Staub is one of my "go-to" authors for spine tingling suspense! Anytime I read one of her books I know I am in for a real literary treat, because she packs her stories with the kind of suspense, that awakens your nerve endings and has you on the edge of your seat the whole way through!! I cannot wait to see what she has in store for the next installment in the trilogy! Highly recommend you add this one to your reading list, you will NOT be disappointed!! ARC requested through Edelweiss, and kindly provided by William Morrow Paperbacks in exchange for a honest review.
