A quick paced narrative filled with a rousing cast of intriguing characters set against a backdrop of hope, infidelity, skirting along the edge of the law, a missing child, death, and life

Jeanette Michelleís Millicent Quinones opens as the now pregnant Mycall pushes Angelís stroller through the flower garden. It has been a difficult time for Mycall following the death of Saul; his murder had shaken her badly. Leaving Minneapolis to spend time grieving the loss of the man she hoped to marry had brought Mycall some peace.

Millieís arrival helped fill some of Mycallís lonely hours as she pondered the marriage proposal proffered by Saulís brother Angelo.

With the arrival of a letter for Millie revealing that a family member has been grievously injured Millicent boards a plane for Chicago to be with her family.

The narrative then picks up with a recounting of Millieís early life with her husband Hector. The elopement marriage had taken Millieís family by surprise. Millie hoped her marriage would prove to be as wonderful as she wanted it to be.

Before long Hector borrowed money to buy a small apartment building, Mille began ironing to earn a little extra cash. It wasnít long before Millie discovered lipstick smears on one of Hectorís shirts, and the reader is carried along with Millie as she realizes that life may not turn out exactly as she had hoped.

Decision making, the affection of her aunt Big Momma, miscarriage, death of her husband, raising a child alone, a daughter facing problems with the law and more from the people she chooses to allow into her life, drug use, and heart ache are all a part of the tale as we follow Millicent on her life journey.

Writer Michelle writes a quick paced narrative filled with a rousing cast of intriguing characters set against a backdrop of hope, infidelity, skirting along the edge of the law, a missing child, death, and life all wrapped up in the trappings of family and extended family, despair, hope, resolution, and some unexpected twists and turns all of which serve to keep the reader turning the page from the opening chapter right down to the Epilogue.

Michelle indicates Millicent Quinones is a spin off from her first novel Mycall and serves a prequel to Mycall part II. As such, it is suggested that Mycall be read prior to reading Millicent Quinones in order to better understand the characters, pick up the story line and gain a feel for the action and intrigue. The tale will keep the reader guessing and reading to learn what will come next.

Filled with plenty of tension, turmoil and even murder Millicent Quinones is a work of fiction that reads at times much as do the headlines for the evening news. Millicent Quinones is an honorable woman who seems destined to face and resist the influence of heartache, injustice, wickedness and a series of persons more interested in their own desires and wants than in a woman who is ready to help and ask for little in return.

When author Jeanette Michelle first approached me regarding reviewing her writing; she asked whether I would mind reviewing books written from a black perspective. I assured writer Michelle, that despite the fact that I am not black I foresaw no problem. And, Iím pleased to say, that Millicent Quinones has proven to be an exciting read penned by a black female writer using a black voice, presented from a black viewpoint. That having been said; Millicent Quinones presents a storyline sure to capture the interest of readers of dramatic slice of life be they black and not.

Filled with noteworthy persona, writer Michelle crafts a fast paced work of creative writing peopled with true to life characters, first-rate detailed settings, a convincing storyline and a suitable of not all inclusive conclusion. Millicent proves to be a strong, clever woman filled with resolve and fortitude, as is often found in life receives little recognition for it beyond her own family and friend circle.

The rogues of the work are suggestive of occurrences and individuals who fill the evening news now and then.

Happy to recommend Jeanette Michelleís Millicent Quinones for readers who enjoy quick paced slice of life type action drama.
