I struggled with this book. I think the characters were nicely developed. it was funny, frustrating at times, and overall enjoyable. However, I did not love it. The authors details of clothing and food were a little over the top. Recalling memories in the midst of the current story was easy to follow, but I felt there was too much of the other characters relationships. You're reading then, BAM, the author is setting up her next book.?? As a black woman, I get tired of hearing white men in novels using the phrase " brown sugar". NOT ONE single person has an issue with an interracial couple... in the South?? That was a shocker!
The story was intriguing but I disliked both narrators accents. It was very cringe
All 5 stars for Narration goes to Sean Crisden as he's brilliant at accents, his Southern Spanish one was outstanding. I wish he'd narrated the entire book as he was all that was needed! Morae Brehon is terrible at accents, and I don't understand why this wasn't noticed in the editing of the audiobook.
The ending was pretty weak, but overall the book was decent enough and since I'm mixed race with a child by a white man I like books that mirror my life in some way.
The story is OK but the narrative jumps in time quite a bit and the narrators don't help make this clear. Sometimes I had to listen back to understand it. The book does a good job of introducing a range of characters who will be the focus of future books. However there were times in this which felt uncomfortable in terms of the dynamic between people.
