PRAISE FOR IN-LAWS AND PLAY COUSINS:
What a great book this was to initiate our first book club meeting! We were all so excited to talk about the book and the conversation it sparked caused us to not want the meeting to end. The book was very entertaining and suspenseful; and the richness of the characters made them like one of our friends. All agreed that once we started reading it; we could not put it down!

"Outstanding story that is a culmination of the intense character interactions between ""In laws and Play Cousins" and "Three Sides to Every Story"
Great storyline. Must Read!!! "

"Three Side to Every Story" was one of my all time favorite book to read. I just couldn't stop reading this until i reached the end, which was well into the early morning.
This book could be read as a stand alone, but go ahead and get the first book "In Laws and Play Cousins".
I'm hoping that Ms. Gant would do a 3rd book. I would love to see Pilar get a turn around. After being mentored from the age of 14 or 15 by the spawn of hell, Denene, Pilar didn't stand a chance. Being filled with lies and naive enough to believe what ever Denene feed her, was her downfall. But i really felt sorry for her. Although she did need to pay for her action, i was hoping she would get a different out come.
Ms. Gant added a nice little shocking twist to Nubia story, that, i really didn't expect. Kevin i thought was a little too sneaky at times,but i still loved his character. In book one beginning, i thought that Aaron was gonna be the wild, player twin, Not ."

In case you're wondering, I shot the videos to the leftand on the cover page with an I-Phone 6s. The location is Sandy Beach on Oahu in Hawaii. Much of my inspiration comes from relaxing and meditating on or near the beach.
I think of the ocean as a depiction of me - open, true blue and free-spirited. Robyn
