My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Consequences is a well-written book. The characters are likable and believable. I listened to it as an audible book and the narration was spot on. The book focuses on two women, Trinette Montgomery and Nikki Truth, best friends. Each one has problems in her marriage. Each one tries to cope with the problems – one, through manipulation, lying, cheating and believing something that no woman should ever believe (he’s really going to leave his wife for me); the other through determination and hard work – her husband has returned from his military tour with a heaping dose of PTSD and denial of same.
I stayed engaged throughout the book but since parts of the book were like wading through my own past – I’ve experienced my fair share of cheat and deceit – it didn’t move me as much I might have liked. The resolution of the book was plausible. The only thing that bugged me was the final paragraph – I would have given the book 4 stars but for that last paragraph. It kind of left me hanging and took away the satisfaction of the outcome. I don’t mind a sequel – I write them, too – but I want to feel full and satisfied when I read one of the books in the series.
