    Description

    New York Times best-selling author Mary Monroe returns to the 1930s era of her acclaimed novel The Upper Room with a dazzling portrait of two very different couples whose friendship and fast times are no match for shattering betrayal. 

    A solid marriage, a thriving business, and the esteem of their close-knit Alabama community - Joyce and Odell Watson have every reason to count their blessings. Their marriage has given well-off Joyce a chance at the family she's always wanted - and granted Odell a once-in-a-lifetime shot to escape grinding poverty. But all that respectability and status comes at a cost. Just once, Joyce and Odell want to break loose and taste life's wild side, without consequences. 

    When their new neighbors turn out to be high-steppin' bootleggers Milton and Yvonne Hamilton, the Watsons plunge headlong into good times and fast living. For Joyce, Yvonne is someone she can show off to - and look down on. And Odell won't introduce crude, unsophisticated Milton to his friends - but is happy to let Milton ply him with free booze and good times. Milton hates being slighted and disrespected, and he's determined to do something about it. When Milton inadvertently discovers Odell's scandalous double life with a long-term mistress, he decides this is the perfect chance to wreck the Watsons' perfect world.

    This was a great read. The end of the book was not an end. It is a beginning of the next book in the series.

    Ending was a let down

    I was so surprised with the book ending leaving everything up in the air. Not impressed with the unresolved issues.

    The most monotonous audiobook EVER

    I’m only at chapter 17 right now but wanted to write a review this far and I’ll update after I’m done. I keep wandering off while listening because the narration is so monotone. So maybe it’d be better if I’d read it in print. It’s so dull it makes me laugh out loud sometimes. As I read in another review, they talk about how ugly Joyce is about every other sentence, the reviewer wasn’t exaggerating one but. It’s a lot. And I mean A LOT. So far I mostly hate all the characters but I support that’s something and I’ve continued to listen. I was disappointed when I read a review stating it has a “to be continued...” ending.

    Don't waste your credit

    story dragged out without a climax then ended abruptly without a resolution. You have to buy book 2 for the follow up. Disappointed. A complete waste of my time.

    Dud Ending

    Good narration, interesting story, but it just abruptly ended. That left me feeling mostly unsatisfied, and wondering what happened, and why the author simply stopped writing.

    The ending????

    Let down by the ending. But I guess that means a sequel is coming?? Mary Monroe is my favorite author.

    Horrible!

    Narration = horrible
    Storyline = horrible
    Ending = horrible
    This book highlights colorism, and other ignorant “isims” in the black community.

    Not my favorite, but entertainment

    It wasn't a story that made me want to finish it in one day or anything, but gave me a few chuckles. I'd read earlier reviews about the ending, so I wasn't too disappointed, but definitely would've loved to find out if Joyce ever found out the truth.
