Overview

Monette Victor comes out of prison more than ready to put her old life behind her. After a long hard fight, she is granted parole. She’s determined to clear her record and her name; nothing less than a full pardon will do. With a bestseller about her scandalous past, Monette is ready to take on the real world. At least that’s how it seems to those looking from the outside. Inside, Monette is scared. She has a lot to make up for, and a lot of burned bridges to rebuild. Love isn’t on her busy schedule. Until Jayson Odum walks in. On the surface they’re from two different worlds, the nice guy from a stable family vs. the bad girl who came up hard and made all the wrong choices. The sparks fly, and Jayson sweeps away Monette’s attempts to keep him at arm’s length. Monette starts to believe in happily ever after. But when her former lover launches a new campaign to get her sent back to prison, Monette and Jayson have to find a way to stand together and claim the happiness they deserve.

    deep character study

    Monette Victor spent fifteen years in prison claiming all along that then Pointe Coupee Parish, Louisiana DA Winn Barron falsified information that framed her. Now paroled because of new evidence that exonerates her, but not fully freed as she still belongs to Louisiana Department of Corrections, Monette vows to build a new life avoiding the mistakes that made her an easy mark for Barron. Having written a book, the media including Couric make Monette a star, but she vows to herself not to let all the attention get to her head. At New Beginnings where she is staying, Monette and Jayson Odum, owner of Quality Car Care Service, meet the attraction is incredible as each feels the same desire for the other. They begin to see one another and fall in love. However, as her confidence grows in terms of her new foundation, Monette has doubts about relationships as her partying youth made her an easy target to convict her on drug selling. Unless she can overcome her fears about her own nature, Monette will remain imprisoned in a jail created by her mind. --- The romance between the lead couple seems unnecessary as SOULFUL STRUT is more a deep character study of a person getting a second chance at life. Though Jayson is a nice person, the tale belongs to Monette exclusively as she tries to balance the injustice she suffered from with her own culpabilities that led to making her an easy prey. Readers will root for her to make it as an underdog thriving to prove to everyone including herself who considered her an unworthy loser. --- Harriet Klausner
