Publisher's Summary

Sylvia Blackwell has it all, or so she thinks. She and her handsome husband, Garrett, are the epitome of success: an immaculate house of their dreams, a beautiful and talented 17-year-old daughter, flourishing careers, and nearly 20 years of perfectly wedded bliss. Just as they are making plans for their vow renewal celebration, a call in the middle of the night interrupts their picture-perfect lives. Now Sylvia has to deal with the reality of Garrett's dead mistress, a love child she never knew about, and the fact that the man she's been married to for the past 20 years may not be the man she knows at all. 

Unlike her sister Sylvia, when it comes to love, Janelle Hudson can take it or leave it. Her on-again, off-again, noncommittal, stress-free friendship with Jarvis Baldwin is fine with her. But her life becomes complicated when she is faced with choosing between a sure thing with a good man or what feels right with the wrong one. 

Best-selling author La Jill Hunt is back with Midlife Crisis, an emotion-packed story of love, betrayal, and family loyalty. When lies are unveiled and secrets are revealed, can love be strong enough to forgive, even when you can't forget?

Where is the rest of the story

Loved the novel but did not like the ending.. The novel needed to stand alone even with a continuation series..

Wait, what the end?

OMG how can you just leave it like that? I want to know what happens. Is there a sequel to this book. If this is the end then I am disappointed.

Underwhelming!

There are too many loose ends to this story. I would have liked the characters to have been developed more. It was a good plot twist but it ended too abruptly. This could be because there is an intended sequel, and if so, I would like to know that. Otherwise I feel like I've spent 6 hours of my time to be let down by a flat ending.

Great story

The performance was less than savory as the orator doesn’t do multiple characters well. Maybe there should have been two.

This book was everything!

Such a good book with a great reader whose inflation changed with each character. My mouth was left wide open through several parts. I can't wait to buy the next book in the sequel.
