Black Rose by Kris Thompson

Black RoseBlack Rose by Kris Thompson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was recommended by several book buddies. I gave in and pushed it up my never ending pile of TBR list. I am so glad I did. I was hooked. ALL night I stayed up to finish this book. I began reading it around 9pm, I couldn't leave it alone, so I stayed with it right until the end.

Some people will say.....can't read this about rape, abduction, torture
Some will start it and not want to finish it

Can I urge you to read it, get past that and see the strength of the girls involved, see how this experience has affected them, but together they became a unit of sisters.

What was so amazing and stands out to me is the court case at the end. I was WHAT, WHAT, WHAT IN THE HELL [you will need to read the book to find out what I mean] its amazing how much is in this book.

Many things stood out for me, I passed over the rape, the abduction, the torture to why........the motive. Why.....these girls.


Its a book that is so well written. The feelings the emotions of they guys looking for them, the family and friends involved, its all there.

The warped mind of someone who could do this.......its all in there.

Strength of character. That's what stood out to me. How we can get strength from inside ourselves when we least expect it. How we can overcome anything with help.

Brilliant book.

I have to emphasis its not nice to read about abduction, rape, torture, but see beyond this, see the girls, see how they manage, see how they cope. Its not easy on the stomach in parts, but its a good psychological thriller.

I would like to thank The Writer's Coffee Shop Publishing House via Net Galley for my copy


Lillian Locke had the perfect life in Boulder, Colorado. She had the boyfriend of her dreams, a wonderful family, awesome friends, and a spot on the track team at a great college. There wasn’t anything life could throw at her that she couldn’t get through . . . until he found her.

Lillian never could have imagined being abducted and chained up in the dark. Worse yet, being just one of many girls kidnapped and held captive by a madman. All she can do now is hope that she survives the brutality of their captor long enough to find a way to free herself and her new captive friends. 

When Richard Haines’ girlfriend goes missing, he makes it his personal mission to find the woman he loves and bring her home to the safety of their loved ones. Seeking the help of friends and family, Richard abandons everything except for his pursuit of Lillian. But when someone else close to Richard goes missing, and the bodies of the abducted girls start showing up in the hills outside Boulder, the only thing he can do is hope that he finds her before it is too late
