I'm not normally a fan of contemporary fiction, preferring to lose myself in characters and stories from days gone by. However,the imagery of the book cover as well as the title intrigued me enough to not only pick this up, but read it every chance I got. What I appreciated, more than anything, was that each of these characters was three-dimensional. Love them or hate them, they were relatable and believable. Although the story lines were emotionally painful, they were expertly crafted. I didn't like the storyline that Vaughn was molested as a child and therefore became an abuser and I thought it was too easy for Milky's biological mother to be a victim of abuse, herself. That second story line might lead some to believe that being an abused person is genetic. I absolutely LOVED how Dana seduced her co-worker! LOVED IT! #tookcopiousnotes. I will read DWC again and can't wait for the next offering by Ms. Cosby. Kudos!

Format: Kindle Edition
Dana and Ric met in her senior year of high school. Fifteen years later and married with children, Ric has been awarded "The Screw Up Husband of the Year" trophy. He doesn't have any desire to advance in the workforce because his aspirations lie in making movies. The constant arguing and mistrust drives a wedge into their marriage, allowing betrayal at its best to rear its ugly head.

Willow and Vaughn come from opposite sides of the track and every chance he gets he reminds her of it. He rules their marriage with an iron fist, but Willow loves him and she's willing to endure whatever it takes to keep her marriage and family together. When shadows from both their paths are revealed, Willow reclaims her self-worth and new found strength.

Crystal and Dante's open marriage seems to work for them; as long as their discretions remain out of the tabloids. When their marriage is jeopardized, Crystal breaks down and realizes she's not as tough as she thinks she is.

Drama, drama and more drama sets THE DISGRUNTLED WIVES CLUB in a class all by itself. From the strongly developed characters to the vividly described hardships these three women experienced, there were moments when I asked them "How much more can you endure?" The pages were saturated with betrayal, lies, domestic abuse and so much more. Although this is a work of fiction, some of the scenes were far from fantasy. I would have enjoyed this novel more if it wasn't such a long story.

Format: Paperback
Dana, Willow and Crystal are all unwittingly part of a club no woman wants membership to - The Disgruntled Wives Club. Each married with her share of marital woes, these ladies are frustrated and discouraged and ready for change.

"The Disgruntled Wives Club" is amusing to say the least. I like Portia Cosby's style. I like her voice. A couple of times I felt as if she had eavesdropped on some of my conversations with my friends. Imbued with emotion, reality and drama, this book has it all. It was both a pleasure and pain to read, as the high highs and the low lows of these women's lives unfold. Portia Cosby skillfully handles some serious social issues while informing as well as entertaining readers.

If I had any complaint about this book, it would be the quirks in editing. There were several occurrences of punctuation after a closing quotation mark. I'd suggest using an editor with a better understanding of punctuation in connection with quotation marks for future releases.

Readers may question what they'd do if they were in the ladies' shoes. But there is no question as to whether you should read this book - the answer is yes! Easily recommendable. This was my first read by Portia Cosby, but certainly not my last.

Format: Paperback
Best friends Dana Hall and Crystal Moss along with Crystal 's sister Willow Townsend seem to share more than friendship. Married women, each appears to be dealing with the good, bad and the ugly in their marriages.

Unlike the sisters, Dana's husband, Ric, is not successful, rich, or famous. He's content with his current life - invalid driver's license, pocket full of half truths and million dollar dreams, he has no way of cashing in on. As he becomes more intrigued with his co-worker, Dana finds herself checking out of her marriage as well. Is there any way to salvage her marriage, once she realizes he's taken his dreams to the next level?

Willow has been blessed in many ways. Married to Prince Charming incarnate, Vaughn is a doting father and husband. Unfortunately, his actions sometimes leave tale tell signs that MAC is not so good at concealing. Fully committed to her marriage, Willow tries to remain in his good graces, vowing to do what is necessary to keep her home life happy. Lately, the prince is no longer assuming the charming role and her beauty is fading to more of the beast side. Will Willow be able to allow the alternate ending?

Crystal has never been a fool. With Dante, her husband, being a famous R&B sensation, she knew that the only way to love him and have peace was to allow their marriage certain amenities. In doing so, she figured she had less of a chance of ever truly being hurt. Literally caught in the act, Dante and Crystal marriage is the highlight of the tabloids. Despite her hardcore exterior, Crystal cracks as she realizes that the love they shared has been breached. Is there a next duet in their future?

THE DISGRUNTLED WIVES CLUB by Portia A. Cosby is a book of massive proportions.
