Reviewed by Karen Pirnot for Readers' Favorite

Bailey is in a lack-luster marriage when she engages in a relationship with the divorced father of her daughter's best friend. Bailey appears ripe for adventure and she soon engages in a sexual relationship which leaves her feeling excited and valued.

It appears that the relationships of Bailey’s friends are undergoing similar transitions and the reader is struck with the conclusion that most of the characters in the book lack adequate insight into their own actions and decisions. However, the plot is well developed and entertaining for most readers wanting a quick read.

"Seeing Red" has common themes and common expectations for the reader. But the author has done a good job allowing the reader to experience a different angle to the common themes of marital infidelity and lack of a sense of personal appreciation.
