Red Hill by Jamie McGuire

Rating 5/5 stars
Publication Date October 1st, 2013

When the world ends, can love survive?

For Scarlet, raising her two daughters alone makes fighting for tomorrow an everyday battle. Nathan has a wife, but can’t remember what it’s like to be in love; only his young daughter Zoe makes coming home worthwhile. Miranda’s biggest concern is whether her new VW Bug is big enough to carry her sister and their boyfriends on a weekend escape from college finals.

When reports of a widespread, deadly “outbreak” begin to surface, these ordinary people face extraordinary circumstances and suddenly their fates are intertwined. Recognizing they can’t outrun the danger, Scarlet, Nathan, and Miranda desperately seek shelter at the same secluded ranch, Red Hill. Emotions run high while old and new relationships are tested in the face of a terrifying enemy—an enemy who no longer remembers what it’s like to be human.

Set against the backdrop of a brilliantly realized apocalyptic world, love somehow finds a way to survive. But what happens when the one you’d die for becomes the one who could destroy you?

Red Hill grabs you from page one and doesn’t let go until its stunning conclusion. This is #1 New York Times bestselling author Jamie McGuire at her unforgettable best.


I will say a couple of things and keep them short. You 're a fool if you think that this book won't be good because you didn't like Beautiful Disaster. You 're also a fool if you want to read this because you think that is like B.D. (in the storyline I mean) with the addition of the zombies.

Red Hill made me view McGuire with a different light. I wasn't expecting this. It blew my mind. Even if I could, I couldn't put this book down. I wanted to learn what Nathan and Zoe will do, if Scarlet will find her daughters and how Miranda will go to Red Hill.

There wasn't a boring part in the story. With the zombies been everywhere and the personal drama of the characters I can't say that even for a page I thought that the book became tiring.

I honestly suggest to you to read this not because I am a fan of the author but because I don't think that you want to miss this. The romance is not a big part of the story so it will be easy to be read from the non romance fans. If you like apocalyptic or zombie books you want to consider this. The end of humanity is coming...
