Review: Easter's Lilly by Judy Serrano

Goodreads: It was Easter Sunday; the day Lilly's life went from safe and comfortable to dangerously unfamiliar. Her transformation takes her from a small town girl having an affair with a low ranked gangster in the Montiago crime syndicate, to a woman of grace and fortitude married to the head of the organization.

Kritters Thoughts: A drama of sorts that made me feel like I had turned on a soap opera. A tale of four brothers and the woman who got all tangled up in the family. With twists and turns, I had no idea where this book was going to end up. Dirty cops and drug dealers made the book interesting and full of violence.

To be completely honest, I still don't know where I stand on this book. It was a page turner and it ended with a great cliffhanger that had me wondering what would come next. But with all the sex, lies and guns - this book was full of pure drama. I stepped onto the set of a soap opera where the woman sleeps with two brothers and has children with two different men.

I don't tend to go for the extreme drama in books, so I am not sure if I will pick up the next one in the series, but I am sure going to wonder about what happens beyond the major cliffhanger.

I was provided a copy of this book for review for the blog tour hosted by Tristi Pinkston Virtual Blook Tours.

Rating:enjoyable, but didn't leave me wanting more

  1. I had to re-post this because at first I only saw one error in your review. When I took a second look, I saw two.

    Thank you, Kristin, for taking the time to read and review my book. I really do appreciate it. I understand that you can't please everyone and that is okay. However, I do have a few corrections for you on the story line. Although I was going for a "soapy" kind of feel, she only has children with one of the brothers. Also she is married to one and has an affair with another, she is only with the brother who eventually becomes her body guard. The other two have nothing to do with her in that way.

    I did want to make that distinction because I do not want any potential readers to think something about the book that was incorrect.

    Thanks again for your time. Many blessings to you.

  2. Judy - I sent you an email. I changed the two discrepancies in the plot in my review without changing the heart of my review.

  3. Wow. Sounds like there is a lot going on in this one. The cover totally creeps my out with those eyes staring out at me.
