Book Review & Giveaway: Red Dirt Road

Red Dirt Road (Saving Angels #2)by Annie Rose Welch: The Saving Angels Series continues…

A new cast is introduced, while journeys already taken start to merge with the present, leading you down the old Red Dirt Road.

Death has always seemed just one step behind Layla Hill, taking almost everyone she’s ever loved. After she loses the love of her life, Layla vows to never love again—how could she, when she’s a death magnet?

Trying to outrun fate traveling with her uncle Willie and his band, Layla meets Michael Roberts, a beautiful Irish boxer as gentle on the piano as he is brutal in the ring. He proves as relentless in life, fighting for a place in her world even as she pushes him away, trying to protect him from her killer tendencies.

But neither foresees the sinister presence waiting for Layla at the end of the Red Dirt Road.

Lori's thoughts: I wasn't sure what to expect with Red Dirt Road after finishing Marigny Street. I immediately finished the first one and went right into Red Dirt Road. I had hoped to see more of Eva and Gabriel from Marigny Street -- and although they are mentioned in passing during Red Dirt Road, this story is not theirs to tell. As with the first book, I enjoyed Annie Rose Welch's lyrical writing. Her descriptive words made me feel almost as if I were there. Let me also say, the prologue to this book blew my mind. Layla is a broken, beautiful soul and my heart was heavy for her.

Classic, fast, cars are a part of the story, too. If you're like me, you appreciate good old muscle cars and swoon worthy boys with accents. I could almost imagine Michael's Irish brogue coming off the pages as I read the book.

At one point, closer to the end of the book, I thought my heart was going to be shredded and I was going to be really upset if things didn't work out. I don't think I'm giving too much away by telling you that there is a HEA ending in this one. Bravo Ms. Welch. Now. When can we expect book #3?!

Born and raised in New Orleans, Annie has a habit of shortening her words and telling long stories. She speaks with a southern flair and cooks with it too. At the tender age of twenty- one, she hitched up her wagons (took her first plane ride) and moved out west to the big shake (California). Her writing career began one sleepless night when she imagined a gorgeous woman and a man with maniacal hair floating above her like lightening bugs falling from the sky. Curious about them, their story, and why they were floating around in her head, she sat down and penned (typed) her first novel, Marigny Street. A dream come true for her, she hasn’t stopped writing since. She loves a damn good love story, always has, no matter what the genre. She is particularly moved by imperfect love that in its own unique way is perfect, the notion of love at first sight, soul mates, and things that are generally out of the norm.

When she’s not writing she enjoys dabbling in photography and finding new, inspirational music to add to her collection. She currently (still) resides in the big shake (although her southern roots are calling her home) with her husband, daughter, and their two peculiar dogs, Boudreaux and Tabasco (who, call her crazy, bark with an accent).
