What I Read/I’m Reading

I’ve been trying to get back into reading, slowly, but surely.

I bought Kimberla Lawson Roby’s latest book the day it became available and 2 days later was finished. I mean, I was up reading early before work, it was that good to me. If you’re trying to get back into reading, this is definitely one to check out.

The Perfect Marriage

 

ADDICTION. DECEPTION.
PRETTY PICTURES HIDE UGLY SECRETS.

Denise and Derrek Shaw are the perfect American couple. Happily married for fifteen years, they have a wonderful daughter, Mackenzie, successful careers, and a beautiful home in a posh Chicago suburb. They are attractive, respected . . . and hiding a
shocking secret: a dangerous addiction to drugs.

It started innocently enough. Denise occasionally used prescription drugs to help her deal with the long hours and demanding nature of her job. Derrek, also under pressure at work, began using cocaine socially with some of his colleagues.

They can quit whenever they want to. At least, that’s what Denise would like to believe . . .

As her job becomes more stressful, Denise can no longer get through the day without a fix. Derrek realizes his harmless habit has become anything but, and desperately wants to get clean. However, his attempts are derailed when there is a sudden family tragedy. Once soul mates, now this husband and wife are quickly losing the immense love that had been the cornerstone of their marriage.
With her parents spiraling out of control, Mackenzie makes an unexpected move to take matters into her own hands. Is her sacrifice too late-or is there still hope? Is there a final chance to save the Shaw family?

For  last month’s book club selection, I didn’t read it before the meeting, so I had to pay the penalty. During the discussion, it sounded interesting and since I had bought it on Kindle for a little over 4 bucks, what the heck. I was determined to finish it and I did, but I hated the ending! Here it is:

the elevator

In the path of a devastating hurricane, three very different women find themselves trapped in the elevator of a high-rise office building. All three conceal shattering secrets—unaware that their secrets center on the same man.

The betrayed wife, eager to confront her faithless husband, with rage in her heart and a gun in her pocket…

The determined mistress, finally ready to tell her lover she wants marriage and a family…

The fugitive cleaning woman, tormented by the darkest secret of all…

As the storm rages ever closer, these three must unite to fight for their lives in the greatest test of courage—and faith—any woman could ever face.

    I just finished Perfect Marriage and I hated it! It had so much potential but I think it was too short to actually develop the characters.
