NEW REVIEW: Monica Mathis-Stowe - Where Did We Go Wrong
Monica Mathis-Stowe - Where Did We Go Wrong? - Available Now! - 4.5 out of 5 books -
Three best friends have been holding down each other since college. But are there some secrets that are too much for anyone to hold?
Enter the world of Gabby, Maxine and Joy, who find themselves entwined in secrets,
lies, and betrayal. Will their friendship last?
Gabby has always been known to get what she wants.
When her plan comes to life, she traps a NFL baller, gets pregnant and makes him pay
child support for the next 18 years. But things go from great to bad when Gabby
pins her newborn on someone else, and marries another man who suffers from mental
illness. Gabby can’t hold her lies together when confronted with the truth. A DNA test brings all of Gabby’s lies to light and what follows next is deadly
consequences. Will Gabby be able to live with what her lies created?
Maxine has the perfect life. A husband who is on his
way to making partner, two handsome sons
and the house of her dreams. But Maxine is living in hell. Her husband refuses
to let her return to her job as a teacher, they are over their head in debt,
and her husband uses her as his own punching bag. When an altercation lands
Maxine in the hospital, the perfect life as Maxine has come to know is no longer. With
her husband in prison, Maxine is finally taking control of her life. She begins
teaching again and runs into a new co-worker named Kevin. Things seem to be moving in
the right direction, but is everything what it seems? Is Maxine moving too fast that'll end up in another disaster?
Where Did We Go Wrong was a great read. Monica Mathis-Stowe tackled so many issues but kept the story line intact. The
friendship of these three women remained strong through every obstacle. I can’t wait to read Where Did We Go Wrong Again to see where the characters' paths take them in the next book. You will not be disappointed at all with Where Did We Go Wrong.
