    Not very believable realistic but enjoyable enough that I m giving it four stars anyway Also, the main character is a middle aged, African American female weapons specialist YASSS I ve found so few decent diverse thrillers.Looking forward to readingMuriel books She s such a fun, badass main character.

    Now this was interesting.A cop thriller starring a 49 year old black woman who is beginning the 2nd rite of passage for women, MENOPAUSE Made for a very interesting flavor to the book.It also doesn t have a neat singular plot Which for me adds another element of realism.It s refreshing to have a female lead who does not at all see her life as being over at 49 We have many books with male detectives of that a

    This book got on my nerves but I felt like I had to finish it It started out slow to me Iwas ready to get to the good part I hated how Laughton wouldn t answer questions and would just walk around from Muriel And what happened to Mr Kim.

    I got this book for free on the first read giveaways on goodreads It was a fantastic book Not only was Muriel bad ass, but a strong independent woman She was the glue that held everything together Her sister Nareece was a bit of a mess and that holds true when 20 years of secrets come around to haunt these women Also, there is a few plot twists that kept me captivated in this book Oh and I just love Dulcey She keeps it real and speaks her mind

    I loved the authors alliterative style I found a few holes in the story though Laughton is the brother of one of the main characters in the story Hie face was supposedly changed after his Father tried to have him killed I don t think your voice or mannerisms can change Boone should have known who he was M and Nareeece are sisters who both have bad luck in men I loved that it was a Philly based novel A crooked police officer was a big part of the chase

    I did enjoy this book by Johnson The main character was well sketched out and one got to know here well, even with the hot flashes, which did provide some humor in a book that is mostly a mystery or detective story The plot was well done and kept you occupied in wondering what was going to happen next.J Robert Ewbank author John Wesley, Natural Man, and the Isms Wesley s Wars To Whom It May Concern and Tell Me About the United Methodist Church

    I have mixed feelings about this book.I liked the main character, a strong woman starting menopause But I found the writing a little bit uneven , it didn t flow and the story never really gripped me So I would give it 3.5 stars.I won this book through a Goodreads giveaway.
