What should a wife believe: the words of her husband, or the diary of his mistress?
Monica counts her blessings: she has a husband who is not only devoted to her but committed to being a strong, caring father to their twin sons. When Carlos surprises her with an unforgettably romantic getaway, Monica knows her husband is still very much in love with her—and she with him. But an unexpected package threatens to change everything Monica’s ever believed about her husband.
Bitter from her experiences with a cheating husband, Angela has adopted a sex-them-and-leave-them attitude towards the married men she’s bedded over the last five years. Then she meets Carlos. Now, she will stop at nothing to get him for herself—even if that means destroying her own life and another woman’s family.

Reading all of the positive feedback, I was compelled to use a credit on an author with whom I am not familiar. Oh how I WISH I had made better use of that credit! The storyline was COMPLETELY unbelievable, yet totally predictable, and the characters one dimensional. I think what really ruined it for me, though, was the narrator's interpretation of the voices of the characters. Especially Carlos, whom she made sound like a caricature from a really bad 70's blaxploitation movie. The "sista gurl" vibe she tried to give Monica's best friend fell completely flat.
I wouldn't waste the credit.

I enjoyed listening to Diary of a Mistress. When you are able to believe in someone, no matter what happens to you nothing will shake your beliefs. It may be a hard road ahead of you but you can make it. I found Monica, Carlos and Angela some real live characters in the amazing story. The story left me saying Wow!
This is my first book by this author. She provides a great storyline, great character development on the women in the book, and she allows readers to experience the diary from many perspectives. I was caught up in the great storyline that I could not put it down. I would highly recommend this book!
I really enjoyed this book. I listened to books so much that I can pretty much tell how it is going to end. I really did not see this ending at all.. This book just goes to show you that you should not believe everything that you read and see....
This was actually a really good book. I felt it was too short though. The twists and turns in this book was well done, although the Narrator could have done a better job at showing emotion. It was none-the-less a really good book.
I thought the narrator was great and the story was great. It was great all the way through. And it didn't have a very noticeable ending. I certainly was thrown off. I enjoyed this book at work. One of the many I wish I would have actually read. I've listeneed twice already.
