I was very disappointed with the writing versus part 1 of the novel. I think that most of the character's personalities completely changed to the point where half of the characters seemed mentally unstable.
In the first installment, at least Granville had a reason for being crazy and over-the-top! But in this one there was entirely too much manufactured drama!
The reader's performance was still excellent and he did his best to save this book to no avail! I would give the reader a 5 for his performance, but there is only so much his performance can do to save such a travesty.
Whereas I loved Granville in the first story and he pretty much stayed the same - the writer did not remain true to most of her characters and made some of my favorites appear to be very shallow and indecisive sociopaths!
I was really looking forward to finding out what became of everyone from the first book, but this was a definite let down!
I would not waste a credit on a third installment.
It wasnt a good sequel. The new voices who took over the characters from the first book wasn't believable, The storyline didn't flow well either. I was eagerly waiting for the followup, but this wasn't as good as I thought it would be.
I'd give it a shot.
Without giving too much away, I didn't understand the sentencing part. Did Granville go to jail or not? Some parts of book seemed as if he was sentenced while others say he was aquitted.
Then, all of a sudden, towards the end of the book it seems like he and Loretta are friends...When did that happen? I just got confused a few times thru this book :(
Authors, take your time if you decide to write part three...I'd would buy it but I'd hope it would be as good as part one.
Love reading! Always have, glad my friend turn me on to audible. Love romance and mystery books
The characters in this story is a hot mess. Lorretta needs her butt whooped! She is so confused and call herself a Christian. Granville is CRAZY he should be in mental hospital. Great read though, wonder what's happen now..
I am a busy sports mom listening to romance only. If the narrator is good and it has a decent plot, I will find it enjoyable.
I don't like this book. I couldn't finish it. I have tried and tried to listen, but when I noticed it had 53 Chapters, I couldn't do it. It took everything in me to get to Chapter 15. I also didn't like that the sequel didn't have the same people narrating the book. This man doesn't do the female voices justice. The Madison voice was better than the first book, even though it was a man.
It hasn't at all.
It was just bad. He didn't have enough of a difference between the characters to notice the difference between them.
I have read people give bad reviews and say, "I just couldn't finish it". I didn't think I would ever listen to a book and not want to finish. However, this book was the one. I couldn't finish it. I couldn't imagine after the first book, why it would take 46 or 47 chapters in the first book and over 50 chapters in this book. Save you credit for something else!
I did not like how my favorite character, Loretta turned out. She was a totally different character from the first book. She was the better woman and she turned out to be a lesbian and a low life. I thought that was too dramatic of a change.
Cary is a wonderful narrator but I liked having two narrator's, a male and a woman. Having Cary be like a woman was awkward.

Mary I love you but please just rewrite the story, HATED IT!
1. The book was a rush job and the story lines was tacky. 2. The sad part is that Loretta gives Christians a really bad rap! 3. What kind of father would sell your property while you are sick and make his child kill her spouse for money and still lose his business to the man he wanted dead!
4. Why is Chicago a wimp?
Waited a little longer before releasing this book and not trying to make it a sequel. The first book kept me on the edge of my seat. Mary Morrison is a great writer, but I felt this was not one of her better books
The narrator was good that's one of the reasons I continue to listen
Madison Mother, who wouldn't tell their child about something that could affect her life!
If the gun was thrown in the pool at a hotel why did it take so long to find the gun and why wasn't the pool cleaned out after the shooting? anyway Ms Morrison I thank you for your story lines.
Yes, I like Mary's stories for the most part. Cary Hite's voice has grown on me.
I envisioned a better ending to the cliff hanger from the 1st book. I couldn't wait to read the next one. Boy did I get disappointed. These characters seemed watered-down.
Loretta should have remained sane. She was as crazy as Granville in this book. Madison got off too easy. She should have really gotten what was coming to her. I liked the unfolding story line of Madison's "sorry" dad. GRANVILLE IS STILL MY FAVORITE. HE IS CRAZY AS HE##. He's so stupid he's hilarious. He kept me laughing out loud.
Wife and mother of three, I've enjoyed reading since I was a child. I REALLY enjoy audible books because it allows me to multitask.
I usually like most of Mary B Morrison's work & Cary Hite's but this was just sub par, point blank period, exclamation point. I'm sure I'm going to give her another try but shes gonna have to step up her game.
No.....I love the genre, this just a bad read....
He did the best with what he had to work with
I would cut all the all jail scenes, the hospital scenes of the baby being born, too many to name, I probably would have gone in a total different direction with this whole book.
The twist of the new protagonist opposed to when we were first introduced to all the characters in the first book.
Grandville character... I almost laughed ever time he said something!
Nothing, he was great.
Chicago! Seems like a real gentle man that tries to do right by everyone.
Can't wait for the sequel!
After reading the prequel to this book, I was anxiously awaiting the follow-up. The way the roles of the characters were switched or arranged was less than satisfactory. There is only so much i can say without giving up the story, so I will stop here. It wasn't a terrible book. the readability was ok, but dry. Sorry...it just didn't live up to the hype of the ending of the preceding book.
Really?! This again?!...I was annoyed.
I would have rather had the two readers (male and female) as it was in the first part.
Yes. I can't say without spoiling it!
