STORY LINE JUDAS AND JEZABEL:
Set in New Jersey, Judas and Jezabel is an intense look into a dysfunctional family. Rich beyond measure, Sharon and Connor hire a reputable nanny, Carol, for her baby girl, Cindy. The family appears a fully functioning stable home. However, beneath the surface hides, greed, lies, deceit, and betrayal. As time passes, the marriage hits the rocks. Carol, stuck in the middle, watches as these two battle over everything from parental rights to money, play psychological games, lie, and defraud. Trapped in the middle of these battles are Carol and young Cindy.
Come alone as author C. Y. Brown gives us a look inside the marriage, attitudes, and divorce of the rich. As well as how this rich family really saw their employees. My contemporary novel review of Judas and Jezabal follows.
CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, AND DEVELOPMENT:
First I must state, this book was not my cup of tea. Containing cuss words and the use of the F and P words throughout, it was hard for me to read. That said, I must also give the author high marks for an intriguing look into the marriage and divorce of the super rich. Brown skillfully and in detail, portrayed how the rich look upon the rest of the mere mortals of lowly income. As a result, we get a look into the attitudes of the rich who feel they deserve our devotion, royalty, and service.
Furthermore, Brown’s characters development was progressive throughout the book. Although seen as normal in the beginning of the book, Brown slowly and with skill builds the characters of Sharon and Connor to show their instability and greed. As a result, we see how far people are willing to go in achieving their goals.
Finally, in concluding my contemporary novel review of Judas and Jezabel, I found a well-written story which without the language usage would have been just as effective and entertaining. The writing is clear and concise and the pace was in line with the length of the story.
JUDAS AND JEZABEL RECOMMENDATION: STARS 4
In addition, due to language and subject, I recommend this novel for adults.
Finally, Please Note:
Book reviews of any novel are dependent on the book review author’s opinion. Consequently, all book reviews on-line and on my blog, are my opinion. Furthermore, the ARC did not affect my voluntary contemporary novel review.
