Format: Paperback
Entrepreneur Andre Harper reluctantly moves from New York to the quiet,sleepy southern town of Grandridge.Dionne,his wife,has taken a position of a math professor at the town's college.With their marriage on the rocks things happen that will make them or break them.

Business owner and alumni football star Bill Morgan and his wife beautiful Candace are their next door neighbors. Bill has it all connections,money,respect from the town,and status...along with all those quirks he is a truckload of lies and secrets.

Chris Campbell,the Harper's other neighbor is a city employee that warns Andre of the shiestiness of Bill and the town...knowing the right people or forever be an outcast.

Andre takes Chris's warning seriously but Dionne doesn't until the unthinkable happens and only then is she convinced...does this move and the drama that comes with it separate Andre and Dionne or bring them closer together...this reader won't tell...find out when you read CHECKMATE.

This is a well written fast paced story with a bit of mystique that has you wanting to know what happens next.Checkmate is my first and only book I've read by RL Taylor and has piqued my interest in reading more by this writer.

3.90* rating.

This book isn't that good. I was really hoping to like to but it didn't. Its inconsistent and a familiar story line. It took me forever to read it. It really wasn't that interesting so I had a hard time committing time to reading it. None of the characters were likable or provoked any feelings from me. The villain was nasty but he was missing a quality that made you hate him. I had no feelings whatsoever for the main couple in the story. I didn't like or dislike them.

I would say I see where the writing was trying to go but he just never made it there. I would encourage the author to work on his character development. Having emotions or feelings for characters can turn a terrible book into a decent one.

And it was called "Checkmate" for no apparent reason!

Sometimes you just couldn't believe what was going on in this town. I certainly hope this book wasn't written with any past experience in mind because that would have been an extremely creepy life. I did have to go back and read the prologue, because the ending really left you hanging, but I realized the story ends in the beginning. All in all the story was good, and I'll continue to read RL Taylor.
