BLOG TOUR: My POV of Red Hill by Jamie McGurie


SYNOPSIS:
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.

My POV


Red Hill is filled with intense nonstop heart pumping action as we get to see three survivor’s stories told as an epidemic quickly ravishes the human population. It’s a fast paced emotional read that I couldn’t put down.  
As a mother I absolutely loved scarlet’s story. One woman’s fights to stay alive because she has faith that her two daughters who were with her ex-husband have survived the viral outbreak that is turning people into the walking dead. Her journey is what stuck out to me throughout the whole book.
Nathan thought his unfulfilling job and relationship with his wife was the worst thing that has happen to him. That is until he is left running from the town he lives in with one goal to keep his young daughter alive.
Miranda was looking forward to spending some time with her father at Red Hill. Since her parents’ divorce they haven’t spoken as often as they should’ve but she wanted to change that. On her way to see him her situation changed in a blink of an eye. She was no longer just wanting to see her father but needing to find him and get to the sanctuary of his home on Red Hill.
Strength, adaptation, determination is the key to staying alive in this epidemic. This story is about the strength of love and belief and the determination to survive even when all seems hopeless.
