From the back cover:
"Freddie Jackson is just out of prison. he's done his time, made the right connections, and now he's ready to use them. His wife Jackie dreams of having her husband home, but she's forgotten the rows, the violence and the girls Freddie can't leave alone.
Bitter, resentful and increasingly unstable, Jackie sees her life crumble while her little sister Maggie's star rises. In love with Freddie's cousin Jimmy, Maggie is determined not to end up like her sister.
Families should stick together, but behind closed doors, jealousy and betrayal fester until everyone's life is infected. For the Jacksons, loyalty cannot win out. In their world you can trust no one. In their world, everyone is on the take."
reviewed The Take on
This is the first book I have read by this author! I found the book quite good. The author's style of writing is good and the story line was excellent. I plan on reading more of her novels. What I liked the most is the length of the stories. They are spread out by Books and chapters.
