Book Review: Flowers for Meg

Title: Flowers for Meg

Author: Erin Lee and Rena Marin



Meg. Not Megan or Meghan or even Margaret.Just Meg.Her name was as simple as her world.Every day was the same. With a piping hot cup of coffee, she’d stroll from her dingy bedroom to a dusty office across the hall. She’d issue orders to people she didn’t care to know. She’d fire them because she could and cared zero about how it hurt the minimum wage 1099 gig employees struggling to make ends meet.It would not matter to Meg that one stayed home with her dying husband and disabled daughter. She could care less about the single mother trying to put her twins through school with three jobs. The fact that Meg’s employees were counting on every scrap of work they could get to pay for medications and rents would be of no consequence. Hell, it gave her more power. Meg had no life and couldn’t imagine anyone else would either. It was really that simple – to her. At 5 p.m. on the dot, she’d turn her notifications off and eat grape pop tarts for dinner. By eight, she was back to her room with only a single light on and no plans. Tomorrow would be the same. She liked it that way. Alone but not bitter.Until one day. Until the day the pink flowers came with a note attached and a wayward link and everything in Meg’s simple life began to shatter.

My Review

5/5 Stars

Gina and Sarah are freelance writers, working at the same company for the same terrible boss, Meg. They take the brunt of her abuse, doing what they can to hang on. When Sarah’s fired, however, she’s had enough. Sarah and Gina make a decision that will change the entire course of the company forever.

I adore this book. It was dark and gritty and suspenseful. I didn’t know what would happen next, and at the climax of the story, I simply couldn’t stop reading. Loved that twist at the end too. Fantastic little psychological thriller from the minds of Lee and Marin.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
