Blog Tour: Red Stick Diaries by @uplandpublish #review

Fiction / Political Drama
Date Published: March 1, 2015

A criminal drama that reveals the power and control that state and local justice system has over its residents. A young woman finds herself enthralled in a romantic love affair after rebuilding her life from a previously traumatic relationship. She soon learns that the man of her dreams is abusive, controlling and untouchable. He uses his network to enable his behaviors while he finds his next victims. Betrayal is a page directly from the diary of one of his victims.

This novel deals with some darker issues. The main theme is that of abuse and a controlling relationship and I think that the author did a wonderful job of depicting that. You really become involved in the story and compassionate for the main character. 

On another level there is a lot of political drama thrown in. Since it is set in the world of politics, there is a lot of that as well and that shows that Diamond Ryan did her research as I was not confused and actually understood the ins and outs of the story. 

Great writing and great characterization, I'm interested to see where this series takes us next.
