This is such an intense read, from the first page you DO NOT want to stop reading. The storyline is unpreditable, which makes you want to keep turning the pages. Paranormal romance on a whole new different level!!! Excellent read, the book was making feel emotions... this has not happened in a while. Would definitely recommend to everyone!!! Absolutely Brilliant!!
When Hannah meets Marcus in a club she thinks he is everything she is looking for and drop dead gorgeous into the bargain. What she doesn't realise is that the drop dead part could actually happen. This story had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I couldn't put it down. Maree has made the characters in this book come to life, with a generous mix of suspense and evil. I highly recommend it to anybody who is looking for something a little different.
Its hard to believe this is a debut novel. The pace just doesn't stop from the moment you turn the page. Not for the faint hearted, Roses at Dusk is a paranormal thriller that takes a whole new twist on evil as it pitches a mere mortal, Hannah Malcom against a demon she meets by pure chance. Its fast pace and twists and turns leaves you craving for the follow up story.
