Publisher's Summary

Nationally best-selling author Mary Monroe penned the widely acclaimed novels God Don't Like Ugly and God Still Don't Like Ugly.

Red Light Wives is a sassy and scandalous novel of six women who engage in the world's oldest profession. They have something else in common too, their "manager," Clyde Brooks - a charismatic but hard man who fills many roles in each woman's life. But soon, an act of rebellion may change their relationship forever.

An ok book.

This book was ok and kept me busy listening while I do my laundry and other things I do while listening to my books, the end was a little "meh" though.

Wow

Would you consider the audio edition of Red Light Wives to be better than the print version?

I didn't read the print version. I like audiobooks because I can discreetly listen to them in places where it would be rude to have a novel out reading (i.e. Work)

Who was your favorite character and why?

I like all the characters but I felt uneasy when Helen spoke. The book focused to much on her experiences which were horrible.

What does uncredited bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Don't understand the question.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Rosalee losing her family and the wives moving past that lifestyle. Even though some of their lives didn't turn out perfect they seem happier.

Its OK

It was ok, it was hard to keep up with who was who. But the narrator Patricia Floyd is annoying, when she open up her mouth it sounds like she's smacking, and all that swollen she do before and during a sentence... UHG its annoying. Im not sure if I can continue listen to a book that she narrates.

A good read

It was pretty good. Didn't like that Clyde died but I guess it had to happen so that they can move on with their lives. I have read other books by this author and listen to voices by the same ladies and they have always been good I like a mix of voices. Definitely worth the purchase.
