The author seems to have taken the tragedy of Katrina & turned it into soft-core porn. One highly unlikely scenario leads to another. I was thoroughly unimpressed.

I don't know which hurricane Katrina the character went through, but it surely wasn't the same one as the poor people of the actual 9th ward.
The author evidently was not from Louisiana and doesn't know much about hurricanes. The book upset me as I felt it degraded the suffering of those people who really were on a rooftop!
This book appears to be nothing more than someones attempt(!) at sophistication and soft porn. Sorry author, this was not a winning story.

First of all, I am a native and resident of New Orleans, and I love reading novels set in the city. However, if that novel contains a character named Deveraux (I don't know anyone here named Deveraux), takes place during Mardi Gras, or involves voodoo, I usually pass. I thought this would be interesting, with the Katrina connection, but I was wrong. Even though the main character is named Deveraux, I decided to give it a chance. After seeing on one page the word champagne spelled "champaign", and that her grandmother lived in an alcohol-free zone of the city, it was time to push the "Remove from device" button. All you authors out there, if you are going to set your story in this city, do some homework! Don't call streetcars "trolleys", don't have a Jazz Funeral, and please don't have your characters speak in a Cajun accent. And PLEASE use spell-check, and have someone proofread for grammar mistakes.

Nice story overall, although not very realistic after the storm. The sex scenes are clearly written by a male author. Also, the book is full of typos, super annoying.

Maybe if the book had been edited well to correct the grammatical and typographical errors it would have been easier to read, however the way it was presented here made it unbearable.

Wow, truely awful. Don't waste your time with this one.
I got it for free and can not believe how bad it was!
Parts of it read like a story outline instead of a story.

Format: Paperback
Monique Devereaux was rescued from her rooftop and transported to a shelter in Dallas, Texas, three days after Hurricane Katrina struck her hometown. It is in this shelter that Monique's life is changed in more ways than she cares to remember. Trying to move forward with her life, Monique is introduced to some affluent women who show her what the "good life" is all about. Giving her a taste of a life she was unaccustomed to, these women helped Monique get back on track.

Deciding to stay in Dallas, Monique lands a wonderful job. She has a great place to stay, and is the object of desire to one of the wealthiest men in the world. One who is willing to divorce his older wife just to be with her, but is it all too good to be true? Unbeknownst to Monique, she has an enemy lurking in the shadows waiting for the perfect opportunity to wreak havoc upon her life, trying to destroy all she has rebuilt.

ROOFTOP DIVA is an emotional page-turner from the beginning to the end. It gives a realistic and emotional account of Hurricane Katrina and the effects it had on its victims. With excellent character development, one would feel as though they were a part of the story--experiencing the joys and pain. Full of unexpected twists and turns, D. T. Pollard does an excellent job of helping the reader understand some of the issues many of the survivors had to overcome following Hurricane Katrina. It shows how when we reach out to one another, it could be just what one needs to put their life back together. I commend the author for tackling such a real and emotional subject. He took a chance on revisiting a horrific event, but has turned it into a wonderful story of tragedy, faith, love, strength and determination. Kudos to Mr. Pollard on a job well done.
