Review: Whitley and Austin by Parker Paige

Whitley & Austin by Parker Paige

THREE beautiful redheads - THREE Motives - ONE Murder

Tapping into the common wish to be someone else, if only for a short time, this suspense drama explores what happens when a woman, bored with her humdrum existence dyes her hair red and takes on the persona of her late sister.

After the murder of her beloved sister, a quiet and warmhearted legal secretary, Charlie Weiss, who works for the prestigious Whitley & Austin, is in search of an escape. A few sessions with her psychologist propel her to the realization that the excitement that she seeks is in a new life, the life of her late sister.

With a daring wish to continue the wild life of her late sister, she colors her hair red and dares to reinvent herself. And with this new persona comes a different type of experience, including becoming one of three redhead suspects to a murder.

My Thoughts:
Charlie doesn't know what to do with herself after her family dies. She drinks, doesn't have many friends, and keeps the man who loves her at arm's length. She decides to dye her hair and become a different person.  And that, not surprisingly, doesn't turn out well. Most of what she does makes little sense, but she is fairly unbalanced and that is part of her character. The story is somewhat predictable at times, and I found it hard to believe that Charlie looks exactly like her late sister and two of her co-workers when she dyes her hair red. There were parts that were tough to read because of strange word choice or awkward sentences. Overall it is a fairly good read. The banter between Charlie and her nemesis is entertaining.

My Rating: ****
Steam Factor: !!
