Garnet Boudreaux is back in Louisiana, a place which she swore never to return. But now that she is here, something is happening to her, something is pulling her back to the bayou where she grew up. The call is irresistible, despite the fact she knows if she responds it will change her life forever.

Red: A Seduction Tale by Maddie James is an extremely interesting and completely original take on the tale of Little Red Riding Hood. I know I never could have come up with something so unusual and yet which fits the theme so well. Having said that, there were some things I found distracting. Things like she is drunk at 10:30, but by 11:30 seems completely sober, the speech pattern would go from extremely formal to casual during the same conversation, and the thought of a woman walking in the bayou with Jimmy Choo high heeled shoes bothered me intensely.

The tone of the book is more sensual than erotic, but the love scene, when it happens, includes something that was unexpected given the level of sexuality in the rest of the book. I did enjoy Red: A Seduction Tale, and look forward to reading more by Ms. James.
