The final installment of Dahlia's trilogy was fantastic! It's so hard to write a review will no spoilers, but I will say this:

For me Red Dahlia had a different feel to it - again. I felt more of a suspense feeling than anything else. There was less focus on the sex, but the sex scenes that were in the story were as HOT as ever. I wouldn't expect anything less from the amazing Vivian Winslow!

For a novella there sure was a lot going on. While it was great to see how Dahlia's story finished up for

Note: This is a joint review of Black Dahlia (Gilded Flower #5) and Red Dahlia (Gilded Flower #6)


The only reason I’m featuring both Black Dahlia and Red Dahlia together is because I want to end my year with a bang. And even though I’ve tried hard to schedule these two as the very last review of 2014, I still have another review for the 31st…#EpicFail

Black Dahlia begins with something that was horrible. I couldn’t get past it and I had to literally read the prologue a

When I read a serial like this , actually reading this whole series about Lily and Dahlia I always have to stop and THANK GOD my parents are loving and have always been fantastic !! I cannot imagine growing up with twisted evil parents and I know it happens in reality so this isn't just a book thing. Damn Dahlia's mom is a piece of work , the father no better but this mother I want to just take her out with the trash. Who does that to their own kid , I mean really , just who........

If you haven’t read the second book, Black Dahlia, then stop reading now. Here’s a quick recap of where the story went in the second book. Shane died, leaving Dahlia sullen and somewhat flailing while trying to figure out a new future—again—after the one she thought she’d finally have was ripped away. She went to an island to regroup and find some peace. When she begins to move on she’s thrown another curveball, perhaps more significant than Shane’s demise. He daughter, who she thought died at b ...more

Dahlia doesn't like that her mother took her daughter from her when she was born. When Dahlia asks her about it she wont tell her who has her daughter. She refuses to have anything to do with her mother and father. Dahlia's friend Vi has a friend who is a private investagator who is helping look for Dahlia's daughter. Dahlia tells her mother not to bother coming to Lily's engagement party, while she is in Miami she sees Rodrigo.Dahlia was told that she had to go to Paris to meet up with Thomas t ...more

Ok… PAUSE. If you have not read the prologue excerpt, then stop reading this review and come back when you are done. I will wait *whistles* It is on my blog here --->

This review will contain a semi-spoiler from the prologue and nothing more. I promised and I will not give anything away. When Black Dahlia ends, we are left with a BOMB dropped in our unsuspecting laps, which is reiterated in the prologue above and expanded on. That seems to be the trend for Dahlia’s story,

Dahlia is an amazing woman, and I just loved watching her grow through the books. She has gone through so much and is always able to get through like the strong woman she is. This is her final chapter and I'm happy with the way it all ended.

Okay so....Dahlia has basically tossed her parents from her life. She was never happy about her daughter being taken. Not to mention she has no idea where her daughter is or who she is with. And her mother won't tell her anything, so she w
4.5 +++ Stars!!!

Big stuff did happen in this book. We got a lovely conclusion to the trilogy. I could not put this book down until the last word.

This book is power packed with so much information in such a short period of time. I was on the edge of my seat from the very beginning. I fell in love with the hunt that Dahlia much go on for her new life. I was so angry with her mother in this book if she were real she would be in some serious trouble.

Dahlia must search her soul to forgive the people

In the third installment to The Dahlia Trilogy, we find our heroine engrossed in another mission. This time there’s a lot more at stake. She has a lot of things motivating her forward, including her anger at the people who betrayed her. But she won’t allow her pain to get in the way of what she has to do.
She deals with her problems and most of her emotions head on, putting up a brave face no matter what. I like that about Dahlia. She isn’t all talk. She doesn’t let her fears cloud her judgments

Oh Wow!!! This last instalment in the Gilded Flowers 2nd series was incredible.
Every step in the 3 part series, was captivating, addictive and I couldn't stop reading. Dahlia's story was even more intense than Lily, her twin sister.
I can't even begin to summarise this final story as every word would be a potential spoiler, it's just so jam packed with action and twists and turns. The story continues but changes so much, you have to hold on tight, to keep on board. Dahlia's life is intense, and

UPDATE: From the blog

I just have to say, I was SO terrified for Dahlia in this book! I wasn't sure how things were going to go down in a few different areas of her life, and I just wanted her to be happy, and to get all of the things she deserves. Don't get me wrong, Dahlia has definitely made some mistakes in the past, but she really has grown and changed. Plus, some people did some REALLY awful

4 H.O.T. stars!

After learning the terrible secret that Shane and her mother was keeping from her, Dahlia seeks answers. That’s were you meet Thomas Squires, the Englishmen friend of Vi’s. I loved him. He comes across as arrogant at first but you realized that it is just a façade in the end.

Together they seek out what is most precious to D. I wish I could tell you what that it but it would ruin it for you. Let’s just say it’s HUGE.

Some old characters pop in like Gustavo and Rodrigo. Some secrets

I can't get enough of these three girls. Red Dahlia is full of craziness. It's hard to even put into words what I think without doing some kind of spoiler. I will say that I love Thomas. Even though he was a prick for what he did to Dahlia, I can't help but to hope he gets the girl he loves. We get more Gustavo in this one. God how I hate him but love his sex scenes. I wish he would just leave Lily alone.

I'm so happy that Dahlia and Rodrigo had their HEA. I was wishing and hoping for that since

Red Dahlia is the final part of Dahlia's story. I really enjoyed reading it. Red Dahlia picks up where Black Dahlia left off. I loved reading how Dahlia handles the information in the letter Shane left her. I didn't really like the direction Dahlia was going in Black Dahlia but in this one we see a lot of growth in Dahlia's character.

I was a little disappointed we didn't get Rodrigo in Black Dahlia. I was excited when we shows up in this one. Their meeting didn't go as I had hoped. He kind of gi

I am so obsessed with this series! D has so much to overcome and her emotions are just all over the place. She is such a passionate character and I love being on this roller coaster of emotions with her. She has lived her life for right now up until now. She is growing up fast and has some very big decisions to make. Winslow's male characters will have you swooning. Whether it's a "good guy" or the "bad guy" they are all so hot! The erotic scenes ar

Dahlia is back to her old ways. Rodrigo - Gustavo - Thomas (okay, maybe not Thomas but she was thinking about it). Gustavo, Gustavo, Gustavo - just go away, I am so over you now and I'm very disappointed in you.

Dahlia deals with her awful parents and the search for her daughter. I liked the turn of events in Dahlia's life. Her story is definitely a rollercoaster ride. Good ending for Dahlia and an opening for Vi's mysterious story.

I reveived an ARC from the author via TNT Reviews in exchange for an honest review.

I thought I was prepared for what was coming but hello we're talking about Vivian Winslow  here so expect the unexpected.

If I  was Dahlia I'd have left my mark on my "mother" for life !! WTH?!  Mother dear can say all she wants but nothing .....NOTHING  will excuse her behaviour( and this isn't the first time she's done this , her reaction to Dahlias betrayal on the eve of her wedding left me speechless) She wat

Vivian Winslow's "Red Dahlia" is the third story in the Dahlia Trilogy and the sixth story in the Lily, Dahlia, and Violet universe. Dahlia searches for her daughter, and manages to have some hot encounters along the way. I liked the realness of Dahlia's feelings for her lost child and for her ex, Rodrigo. A old family enemy makes an unexpected appearance as well, such a tangled web. Winslow is building up for Violet's story, and I'll be interested to find out what's going on with her. As always ...more

4.5* Good continuation of Dahlia's story. If she hasn't had enough bad she will have to remain strong to get through what she now faces - betrayal, hope, deception, new beginnings and so much more. I really enjoyed watching her grow and mature. Would have like a little more to see if she back slides or not. Hope to find out in Vi's story!
