Keep smiling, keep shining, <BR/>Knowing you can always count on me, <BR/>for sure, that`s what friends are for. <BR/>For good times, and bad times, <BR/>I`ll be on your side forevermore, <BR/>That`s what friends are for.... <BR/><BR/>Kailah Carter and Mona Richards met at the University of Florida and became fast friends. This unlikely duo came from opposites sides of the track. Mona is the only child of rich socialites, while Kailah, the only girl of five children, is from a working class family. Her parents provided the necessities: food, clothing and shelter. Despite their differences, their bond is so strong that they love each other like sisters. A sisterhood bond that they thought was unbreakable until one betrayed the other in the worst way possible - she slept with her man. Turning their backs on each other and their friendship, they each head in different directions in life. Each not being completely whole or happy without the other. <BR/><BR/>Kailah, living in Chicago, is successfully climbing the corporate ladder. She meets the man of her dreams in client Keith Terrance. But Keith is living a lie. A lie that could have serious repercussions on Kailah and their life together. <BR/><BR/>Mona, living in Miami, has watched her blossoming career as an attorney take a tragic downward spiral. The tables have turned as Mona is now struggling with her financial situation and the aftermath of a life altering event. A light appears at the end of the tunnel as Mona meets Davis Simpson. Davis is the man of her dreams minus his two spoiled teenage daughters and a crazy ex-wife determined to be apart of his future and not the past. <BR/><BR/>Mixed Messages started slow and somewhat confusing with a skewed time-line. I contemplated putting the book down, but I kept going. I'm glad that I did as the book did pick up. Now the time-line on the other hand remained skewed. There were times where you didn't know where you were in time or chunks of time passed without explanation. Weeks and months came and went with the flip of a page. Fortunately the ongoing drama in the lives of Kailah and Mona made up for the confusion and lapses. Solid debut effort. I look forward to Ms. Williams' sophomore novel. <BR/><BR/>Reviewed By: ToniWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
