I don't tend to read this genre but I must say I really enjoyed reading the book. Once I got passed remembering who was who, I found the book a nicely flowing, entertaining read, feeling the friendship between the characters enabled you to easily step into the story and feel the love, laughter, drama and tears of the close group of friends. The story follows a group of four friends, Val, Ronnie, Kismet Staar and Beau, they call themselves the Cohorts and apart from Kistmet Staar, all share an apartment together. Val, who found true love only for it to be taken away from her so brutally, will she ever find love again? Ronnie, seeking so much the attention she desires but not in the right way, can she be honest about what she really desires? Kismet Staar is Beau's cousin who is always there for him, keeping a watchful eye on him. Which then leaves Beau himself, who could have any lady with his looks and charm, but sadly for them he prefers the opposite sex. Then one friend crosses the line of friendship the whole group falls to pieces and you almost feel annoyed with them for making it happen. A sad and hurtful time for them all, leading to a shock discovery. Can time heal the pain they caused? Can they learn to forgive before it's too late, realising that love should never leave.

Ms. Marquette's book, Absolution, was an interesting read and touched my heart. Revolving around the lives of four dedicated friends and the unspoken love that exists between them, the ensuing drama is believable and threatens everything they believe in. The hurt feelings, mistrust and bitter words that are enchanged, as well as the pain wrenching sense of betrayal, is believable. The last few chapters of Absolution are heart wrenching but left me cheering for Beau and his true sense of forgiveness despite overwhelming odds. He is portrayed as a true friend, despite all odds. Ms. Marquette's phrase, "Love never dies, never walks out on you and never regrets", is beautifully well said and fits the situations that are explored in Absolution.

"Absolution" is about the lives of four friends. With drama piled on top of drama, will this group remain friends till the end? "Absolution" was a very good book. It was entertaining, enjoyable and fun. I really liked April Marquette's message that love never dies, never walks out on you and never regrets. The only thing I would have liked to have seen different with this novel is for a certain character to be happy with someone of her own. Hopefully there will be a sequel. Reviewed by: Marcella

Absolution is a fast paced all night read. This story is of four close friends who refer to themselves as "Cohorts". Each individual is unique with their own inner struggles. The deception of one causes a division of friendship. Add to the story one of the friends is hiding the fact of a terminal illness. Will this illness bring them together or pull them further apart. April Alisa Marquetter brings her characters alive with great descriptions and emotion. As must read.

I read this book because the cover caught my attention. It's about a group of people, I think she calls them Cohorts. They have fun, and drama! The dialogue is witty and the author is quite descriptive. I don't read a ton of books because I don't have time, but I'd purchase anything this lady writes. I'd like a signed copy. Looking for a book signing in NYC...

I'm the husband and I heard the book as it was being written. Bits and pieces today, yesterday. Now I have my own full copy to read from start to finish. I truely like the story. It's amazing how April puts it all together and the charactors are so alive with true to life stories. Wait until 'Progression', and 'Exodus'

I loved this book! I got a promo copy and it was interesting from the first page. The characters are well rounded and the subject matter really made me think. I can't wait until the next book. I hear this book is part of a trilogy. Bring the others on!!
