Format: Hardcover
SISTERS AND HUSBANDS is the sequel to Sisters and Lovers, where we first met sisters, Evelyn, Charmaine and Beverly...and the drama continues.

Beverly has been engaged three times and the last two engagements she broke off just before walking down the aisle. Now she believes she's met the man of her dreams in Julian and she's sure she wants to spend the rest her life with him. Her family is happy she is finally settling down.

Family and friends see Evelyn's and Kevin's marriage as picture perfect, both have successful jobs, a beautiful home, fancy cars and two children. But there's trouble in paradise and Evelyn is not sure how to handle it.

Three times divorced, Charmaine is now living in married bliss of one year with Tyrone until havoc erupts, as she tries to bring two families together.

After learning of her sisters' marital problems, Beverly begins evaluating her relationship with Julian. She knows they love each other, but is marriage worth it if she has to work so hard at it? Will she marry Julian? Or will she call it off at the last minute....again?

SISTERS AND HUSBANDS is a refreshing summer read. Briscoe's writing is light and airy with a sprinkle of spice and a whole lot of drama. The depiction of the characters is genuine and the flow of the novel is smooth from beginning to end. I recommend SISTERS AND HUSBANDS for a quick summer pick-me-up!!

Typical characters, typical cheating, typical ending. I am glad that I only purchased the novel for $9.99. We get the point that Evelyn likes designer handbags. Ms. Briscoe, did you need to mention this every 10 pages or so?

Format: Paperback
I read Sisters and Lovers a few years ago and though I didn't agree with some of the choices the sisters made, I enjoyed the book. Although this book was a quick read, it was not satisfying. I keep reading how Evelyn was supposed to be this strong woman who kept it together but she spent the whole book wringing her hands worrying about what her husband was going to do. She was so concentrated on saving her marriage so she didn't look like a failure in front of her family and friends that she was willing to accept whatever he dished out. Beverly was childish and unrealistic in her view of marriage. No marriage is perfect because there are no perfect people. Her main argument for not wanting to get married if her sisters were having problems in their relationships. If everyone thought that way no one would ever get married. You can't base your life and happiness on the mistakes of others because you may never make those mistakes or never face those issues. I don't believe her marriage to Julian will last because the moment he does something she doesn't like she will head for the hills. Charmaine was by far my favorite character in the book because she could accept her weaknesses and fight for what she wanted. She knew she wanted her husband and she wasn't willing to let his spoiled daughter stand in the way. Charmaine was the most realistic and I was routing for her all the way. She has certainly grown a lot from the first book.

I was expecting more but overall it is a good read. However, it was not a page turner for me and it dragged a bit in the middle. The characters were interesting, however I would have liked more spice.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Tiffany on April 12, 2011
Format: Paperback
I just finished this book and I was disappointed. It was shallow and repetitive. Who cares about the car a person drives? I skimmed the last 1/3 of the book and I am sure that I didn't miss anything. These characters lacked depth and I don't think the sisters ever had an engaging conversation. They ate, wore clothes, drove cars and complained about other people. Depressing! Charmaine held the most promise. Her blended family was interesting. Don't buy it - get it from the library and read every other chapter. Two stars - Not a page turner,but the plot does compel you to finish the book.

Format: Hardcover
In Sisters & Husbands, bestselling author Connie Briscoe introduces us to three sisters; Charmaine, Beverly and Evelyn. Even though these sisters share the same DNA, each has their own set of individual problems.
Charmaine is on her fourth marriage; this time to Tyrone. Even though they are still newlyweds, their marriage is being tested in the form of a step-daughter named Tiffany. Tiffany is Tyrone's daughter, and although she only visits twice a year, uses her father's guilt to get whatever she wants. With each visit Tyrone looses all sight of sanity and reasoning. He's at Tiffany's every beck and call even if it's at the expense of his new wife Charmaine and her son. Charmaine tries to be the bigger person, but she's had about enough.
Kevin has been the love of Evelyn's life since high school, so it made sense that they would marry and have children and live happily ever after. After two decades of marriage, Kevin starts to lose his mind. Evelyn is sure that it is just male mid-life crisis; that is until Kevin sells his law firm and takes a job at the local Blockbuster movie rental chain, gives away his designer suits and shaves his head bald. Evelyn grows more confused about the man Kevin is becoming. Her faith is shook after she realizes Kevin has committed the ultimate betrayal.
Beverly has walked down the isle more times than she cares to remember. Not being able to go through with any of her weddings, Beverly finds herself headed to the alter once more; again with doubt. This time the unlucky fellow is Julian. Julian adores Beverly, but becomes somewhat irritated at Beverly's odd behavior after she finds out that her sister's lives are not quite what they seem. Instead of living for herself, Beverly uses her sisters as a crutch and an excuse not to wed Julian.
