Title: The Funeral (The Waiting #1.5)
Author: Elizabeth Burgess
Published Date: Expected – October 31st 2014
***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Healing and heartbreak continue on the banks of the Pontchartrain…
Struggling with the death of their son, Andrew and Arianne Douglas cling to one another, and the support of their family.
Torn between duty to the woman pregnant with his child and his one true love, Gregory Adams steps away from Arianne, knowing her husband is the only one who can bring her back from this despair.
While wrestling with the consequences of her actions, Millie Douglas reaches out in a most unexpected way with an unforeseen outcome.
Sol O’Malley returns to South Louisiana to help his father, Bob, regroup the “Operation,” but ignites a firestorm between his wife and mistress instead.
***The Funeral: Book 1.5 is a companion novella for The Waiting: Book 1 of The Waiting Series. It is not a standalone book, and is intended for 18+ audiences due to language and adult content.
THE WAITING – Imagine a mixture of the cash availability of Dallas or Dynasty together with the morals of Desperate Housewives and you will have a slight idea of this book.
Now add in a really good story, very well told and you will know what to expect. Be patient as you read but don’t bother to make notes of who is sleeping with whom as the list will have completely changed by the time you are half way through. The changes seem perfectly natural, but please do not let it influence how you carry on your own life – it’s definitely not a way of life to be recommended.
What it to be recommended though is the standard of writing and tale telling. The author must be a brilliant raconteur to have at a dinner party. I was kept entertained and page turning for the whole three hundred and fifty eight A4 pages of the copy I had. By the end my favourite was Arianne, the only one of the bunch I would want as a friend, yet she was betrayed several times over by those she loved and I look forward to Book Two in the series if only to learn what will happen to her. (I don’t go in for spoilers so can say no more except, “Do yourself a favour and buy a copy!”)
