Sounds really good, right???Yes, it is a really good "quick" read, really good,I really struggled with how to review this book, and here's why...Right away we're introduced into Judith Timbolt's life, she is a wife, mother and daughter-in-law. Her husband seems timid and in denial, her son is sweet and a typical boy, and her in-laws are mean and abusive towards her. By page 4 Judith is ready to run away from it all and start a new life.I told you it was a quick, fast moving story.I feel that the book/story was shortened for space and it was squished into the 64 short pages -I would have liked to have seen more of Judith's personality, her thoughts and her reasons for doing the things that she did. Why and how was she able to leave her little boy behind so quickly, why and how was she able to leave her new situation by the next day and go back to her old life. It felt like she made her decisions to quickly and forced - did she really want to go back because she missed her son, or did it have more to do with the fact that her true identity was about to be revealed - a bit of both?The story is good! The story is there! I want more!!!I feel that this book was more of a novella or intro - this story can easily gain another 100 or even 200 pages!The writing, not too sure - the story flowed well but I was distracted with all of the grammar mistakes, and there was a lot of them. I'm not sure if the copy that I received is an ARC or not, since it doesn't say, so I'm giving it the benefit of the doubt and going with that it is :)I'm giving this book 3 stars - the story is good, potential - I want more ;)

Interesting, fun twists and turns in this one! Never quite sure where you will end up next. Keeps you guessing right to the end. A quick read, well worth picking up.

It's a very short read and the story moves quickly, but it's a great take on everyone's favorite love story. Red Deception hooks its readers right away in an exciting love triangle. The romantic aspect is done in a very tasteful way that gives you butterflies without the embarrassment of too many dirty details. I really recommend for a short pick me up.
