Review

It wasn’t what he said to me; it was what he didn’t care enough to say. It was the lies he would use to try to keep me next to him; lies that would flay flesh from bone and shred my heart.

I found JUST TOO EASY by Gail McFarland, a very intriguing book. It was about a woman who finds out her husband isn’t everything he appears to be and she sets out for revenge of the worst kind. She befriends his mistress in hopes of finding her a worthy man – other than her husband. What happens next is unveiling of lies and deceit that go beyond your imagination.

“Believe half of what you hear, and none of what you see,” doesn’t really apply to Karalee Marshall because she’s not really hearing any of it. Deaf since the age of ten, Karalee is a smart woman. When she discovers that her husband of more than twenty years is cheating on her, AGAIN, she decides to put a stop to it — by finding the Other Woman a new man.

Putting her plan into motion, Karalee learns that her husband isn’t just cheating on her, he’s cooking up a whole lot of other mess. And it seems that every time she stirs the pot, something else surfaces. As things come to a full boil, the last thing Karalee is expecting is to find a sexy lawyer in the mix.

It was like some kind of really bad joke: how many women did it take to make Ben Marshall happy? Answer: I don’t know. How many have you got?
That’s a lot to pack into a book and in my opinion, the author did it well.

I enjoyed the author’s style of writing, as it is much like my own. I found no fault from a grammatical or plot standpoint. The book was full of love, anger, heart-break, deceit, friendship, and getting even. That’s a lot to pack into a book and in my opinion, the author did it well. I’m giving the book 5 stars. It kept me turning pages wondering what this poor woman was going to find out next and how she was going to handle the information, and whether or not that hubby was going to get his final comeuppance.

Almost giddy with anticipation, I stood in front of my closet. Wearing only my bra and panties, with my robe on the floor at my feet, I had to pause. What do you wear to a stakeout anyway? Telling myself that it didn’t matter, I reached for a black shirt and a pair of tailored black pants, then stopped myself. The man already cheated on me. I’ll be damned if I let him turn me into the Ninja Avenger. I put the black clothes back and pulled out a nice blue pantsuit instead. The suit was a good choice. The fit was flattering and it didn’t make me look like a low-rent wannabe spy.

Maybe this is God laughing at me. First, I almost get hit by a truck, and I meet Ben. Now I almost get hit by a street full of cars, and I meet his side-piece.

About the Reviewer

Donna McBroom-Theriot
Writer. Book Reviewer. Southern Lady. Connoisseur of Chocolate. My Life is like an episode of "I love Lucy!" I'm a writer, book reviewer, and a Southern Lady who loves her Sweet Tea. My blog, My Life. One Story at a Time. is where I've been writing short stories since 2009. As luck would have it, the very first short story I wrote was published within months of my writing it. This quote pretty much sums me up: "Deep in my heart, I know there’s no promise I’ll be free from trouble in this life. In fact, I’m usually either getting out of trouble, currently in trouble, or about to meet trouble around the next corner." Well, you know that old saying, "The road to Hell is paved with good intentions" - that road is usually the one I'm on! And, as much I used to mock (we all grow up eventually) the Cajun dialect, 15 years ago, I found myself marrying the sweetest Cajun boy - complete with the requisite white trawl boots and a trawl boat. I love writing stories about the South and life with our two German Shepherds, and the four kids who meander in and out of our lives as they live their own journeys. Most days you'll find me out on the front porch swing, with the dogs at my feet, a tall glass of sweet iced tea close by, and a good book. It's what life in the South is all about. - See more at: http://mylife-in-stories.blogspot.com/p/about-me.html#sthash.VAmp18XE.dpuf
