Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

The question in Monroe's steamy but seedy shocker is who should suffer the most: the unreliable narrator or her BFF who commits murder on the night of their senior prom? Dolores Reese, a foster child, and her best friend, Valerie Proctor, get caught in a web of deadly secrets after "LoReese" witnesses Valerie killing her stepfather, Zeke Proctor, to protect her mother. The friends drift apart but stay in sporadic touch, and 16 years later, Lo, now married, confides her own secret: she's jailhouse married to her first love, Floyd Watson, who's been locked up for years on a bogus rape/murder charge. When Floyd is belatedly cleared of the charges, Lo's determined to stay married to both men, and Valerie agrees to help her. Monroe draws a bleak picture of how secrets can wreck friendships, but she fails to create much sympathy for either the sometimes sarcastic and conceited Lo or Valerie. Readers might find Lo's bigamy lifestyle a little too unbelievable and a late-breaking affair too out-of-left-field, but those who can sit back and go along with the chain of double-crosses and deception should enjoy the ride. (Sept.)

Best-selling author Monroe (Deliver Me from Evil) serves up a tasty dish of murder, deception, lust, and just deserts in her new novel. Delores Reese has had it hard all her life. She was born to a drug-addicted mother and raised in the foster-care system. Her high school sweetheart and fiancé, Floyd Watson, is wrongly convicted of rape and murder and sentenced to life in prison. Delores, aka Lo, resigns to her troubled life and decides to support Floyd while he does his time. In the interim, she meets Paul. They eventually marry, but Lo maintains her earlier engagement and continues visiting Floyd on the sly. But one day, she is blown away by Floyd's urgent news: he's been cleared by new evidence, and they can get married! Lo ends up with two husbands, both in the dark about her double life, and one big dilemma. Although the premise seems unbelievable, Monroe's fans will not be disappointed. Recommended for all public libraries and African American fiction collections.

    This book was definately an eye opener, and a good conversation piece, a definate recommendation. Mary did the damn thing.

    I loved this book from the very beginning to the very end. I will be recommending this book to others. I loved the way it went into detail, and didn't leave you hanging at the end of chapters...it completes itself as soon as a new chapter begins. I love Mary's way of writing, and explaination of everything. This book reminds me a lot of myself, although I've never been married, I have juggled a few relationships at one time, and almost ended up the way that "LoReese" did. I hope they'll be a part II to this book. Even though, everything was summed up at the end, I still just loved all of the characters in the book, especially that Floyd Watson...whoa! I didn't care too much for his foster-mother, but that's not important. Did anyone ever find the body, is the question that I would like to ask Mary if I had a chance too. The story was told beautifully, and in depth, Mary did an awesome job..., and as soon as I finish writing this review, I'm going to order a few more of her books.

    Do Not Recommend

    The book did not get interesting until page 112. The ending left a lot to the imagination. I won't ever read a Monroe novel again. BTW - she has disappointmented me in the past. Never again....

    WHAT'S THE PERFECT FAMILY

    I LOVE MARY MONROE. I LOVE HER WRITING STYLE AND THE HUMOR THAT YOU FIND IN EACH NOVEL. WHEN I STARTED READING THIS BOOK I NEW IT WAS GOING TO BE GREAT. AND IT WAS. AS I WAS READING I STARTED LOOKING AT THE CHARACTERS AND THEIR FAMILY BACKGROUNDS. HERE YOU HAVE VALERIE WHO GREW UP WITH HER REAL MOTHER AND FATHER BUT WAS YET LIVING IN TORMENT AND FEAR. THEN YOU HAVE LOREESE WHO WAS BOUNCED FROM ONE FOSTER HOME TO ANOTHER NOT KNOWING WHAT AWAITED HER THERE. LOREESE COULD HAVE BEEN SENT INTO A HOME WHERE SHE FEARED FOR HER LIFE AND SAFETY ALSO. IT JUST GOES TO SHOW YOU THAT YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE IN THE FOSTER SYSTEM FOR NASTY THINGS TO HAPPEN TO YOU, NASTY THINGS CAN HAPPEN RIGHT IN THE FAMILY THAT YOU WERE BORN INTO. BUT, WHATEVER THE CASE YOU MUST NEVER LET THAT BREAK YOU. I KNOW THE STORY DEALT WITH ALOT MORE THINGS, BUT THAT IS WHAT I TOOK AWAY FROM THIS NOVEL. I RECOMMEND THAT YOU READ IT. YOU WILL BE GLAD THAT YOU DID.
