Overview

We Ain't the Brontes by Rosalyn McMillan

Charity Evans and Lynzee Lavender haven't always had the best relationship—for the most part thanks to them being writers. But while Lynzee is the wealthy, successful New York Times bestselling author of science fiction books, Charity is just squeaking by. Why is success passing her by? And why is her publisher all of a sudden reluctant to renew her contract? Now Charity suspects the worst: That her own sister has had her blacklisted! With her savings dwindling, Charity struggles to pay her bills, and the pressure is putting an incredible strain on her marriage. The rivalry goes into overdrive when Lynzee reveals that the father of the child she gave up years ago is. . .Charity's husband! Charity's life goes into a tailspin as she struggles to decide if she should tell her husband about the child he never knew he had, or if that would be just the excuse he needs to abandon her for good. She knows she has to do something, but will the path she ultimately decides to take end up destroying them all?

This book jump around too much. I expected a better read from Mrs McMillian. I know it is fiction but she needs to get her fact right Denzel Washington's wife name is Paulette not Juanita as stated in chapeter one.

We Ain't The Brontes is about two sisters, Charity Evans and Lynzee Lavender, who ironically, both happen to be authors. Lynzee thinks of herself as a far superior writer than her sister Charity and they both become embroiled in a heated competition over who's a better writer, who's love life is better, and family secrets. While the concept of the story was good, I expected the flow of the story to be a little more like "Danielle Steele" or "Jackie Collins", with twists and turns and surprises all along the way. Quite the contrary, it was more like Pookie Collins. The dialogue is not smooth, it's very choppy, and it doesn't flow very well, plus the book lacks description and has holes as well as certain unexplained parts of the storyline. The book, very simply written, is also very simply edited. There are typos everywhere, so many that it gave me a headache. Lastly, I don't understand the cover photo. I recently read a comment on Twitter that stated that the book covers authors choose should "match" or "reflect" their story inside the covers in some way. I agree. When I received We Ain't The Brontes for review, I assumed that since there were two young women on the cover, dressed in early 1990s attire, that the story was going to be about, well, two young women. This was not the case. In fact, the two sisters in the book, Lynzee and Charity are actually in their early fifties. This left me very confused. Was the cover photo supposed to be the sisters in their younger years? If so, they were dressed very, very wrong. I'm not sure, but it wasn't a good cover and didn't reflect the story in any way. Overall, on a scale of 1-5, I give We Ain't The Brontes a strong 2. I would have appreciated it, if the author had taken the time to shape the characters a little more, would have chosen a better title or at least talked about the Bronte' reference, would have hired an editor, and I wish she would have created better dialogue between the characters.
