I could not put it down, and the ending was very shocking. Aug 09, Kelly-Marie rated it really liked it Shelves: I really enjoyed this novel however I just found it to be a bit on the slow side at times and this is the very first time I was able to know who the killer was a mile before the novel ended so for me it isn’t worth a 5 star rating.

Oct 23, Rupesh Goenka rated it really liked it. A sensational erotic crime thriller Nov 18, Mandy rated it really liked it Shelves: It was entertaining, even if it was a little predictable. I wanted to keep reading, to know if what I thought was going to happen actually did.
As I picked up this title from my “to read” books, I realized that I have not read a novel by Erica Spindler in a long time. Certainly after reading this novel, I wonder why I waited so long.
I was completely absorbed in the friendship of the 3 women since they were young girls and an evening shared when they were 15 years old that now haunts their current lives each in an unique way. Twists and turns may have you think twice about entering an empty house if you live alone or if you’re the first As I picked up this title from my “to read” books, I realized that I have not read a novel by Erica Spindler in a long time.
Twists and turns may have you think twice about entering an empty house if you live alone or if you’re the first one home at night. Funny for me to have read this novel immediately after we “fall back” to Eastern Standard Time and gets dark so early – like late afternoon.
Psychological thriller with explicit sex scenes. Regardless of any other reviews I thought this book was great I couldn’t wait to read the next page but work family got in the way I read the last chapter in piece and I was engrossed and the ending was apt well done Erika can’t wait to read another one of your novels. Oct 11, Toni rated it really liked it. Teenagers Raven, Julie, and Andie discover illicit goings-on in a model house in a new subdivision.
Fascinated by the forbidden, they continue spying on the participants. When the woman they call Mrs. X dies, each girl’s life is changed forever by the police investigation. Only when they are adults,fifteen years later, do the three friends reunite and then certain events make them realize the murderer has returned also.
When someone starts leaving evidence from the previous crime in Andie’s home Teenagers Raven, Julie, and Andie discover illicit goings-on in a model house in a new subdivision. When someone starts leaving evidence from the previous crime in Andie’s home and begins sending newspaper clippings from fifteen years before to each of the friends, one man becomes the obvious suspect. The police officer on the original case gets into the act. As a very young detective, he had a connection with the teenaged Andie but now she’s an adult, and that connection becomes more serious, bringing about the climax of both cases because it appears the man they thought was the killer may not be, and if that’s the case, who is?
As character studies, the three friends are such contrasts to each other it’s a wonder they ever managed to become, and stay, friends. With the exception of Andie, the evident main character, none are particularly likable. Julie, the daughter of a hellfire-and-damnation preacher is a sex addict and easily bullied by Raven who is openly contemptible of her, alternating insulting with coddling and pampering her.
Andie is the most normal of the three but even she has her fears and tends to be an observer rather than a participant in life. The descriptions of the three friends are well-written, especially Raven’s, making her such a despicable character I felt myself wishing someone would land a solid one to her jaw and put her in her place.
The description of the man they think the killer is also well-written, though slanted in context so there’s no pity for him as he wrestles to prevent hurting the second woman he has begun, in his own odd way, to love. Beginning in the present, then told in flashback bringing the reader up to the point of the prologue, Shocking Pink is a tense, exciting thriller.
What happened to the man who fifteen years before set the three friends on the paths of the rest of their lives is never explained. Shocking Pink is about three childhood friends: Andie, Julie, and Raven.
Inseparable, the three have tumultuous home lives but keep each other grounded as emotional anchors. One night they hear ominous music coming from a housing development, and discover a sexual tryst between two strangers, whom they shockihg Mr. The girls are sickened, but curious. X start getting bondage and all sorts of kinky spundler, which alarms the three 15 year teenagers.
After getting the police invo Shocking Pink is about three childhood friends: After getting the police involved, rookie Detective Nick Raphael gives the girls a warning since they are peeping toms, and the adults can do what they shoking. That is, until Mrs. X turns out dead. The killer is still on pibk loose, the papers swarm over everything, and the girl’s lives change forever.

The characters are well developed, and the story really sucks you in. The romance isn’t too forced or cheesy and its well done, and the only gripe I had is the climax. Its always the same with Erica Spindler. Good guy gets attacked, dpindler up, miraculously escapes. I did like the symbolism with the shovel, though. Shocking Pink is one of Spindler’s earlier and better novels, definitely accessible for new readers and must read for Spindler junkies.
But when ‘Mrs X’ is found dead, the girls are frightened, but when ‘Mr X’ isn’t found, they move on with their lives. Until 15 years later, when ‘Mr X’ reappears, sending them scary messages to let them know he’s ericx in town. I did enjoy it, but found all the kinky sex a bit too much, and I didn’t think there was enough of the thrilling story that I’m used to from this shockig.
I would definitely recommend her later books, such as See Jane Die and Copycat. Jan 12, Katy rated it really liked it. Really enjoyed this book. Character development was excellent and whocking plot was intriguing. I did find the ending to be a bit too predictable though. A little less dragging out of the plot could have resulted in a bit more of a surprise ending, but it was still a great, captivating read.
I also think this book is very relevant in today’s literature scene. I’d definitely recommend this book to lovers of suspense as well Really enjoyed this book. I’d definitely recommend this book to lovers spindled suspense as well as today’s erotic romance novels.
