Un-Nappily in Love

Venus Parson's flower shop is blooming, but her relationship with husband Jake, former rap artist turned actor, is in need of water. After starring in his first movie with his former lover, Sirena Lassiter, Jake goes on a promotional tour that sets Venus's nerves on end. She trusts Jake, but something is off-kilter in their relationship. Is it the time apart or is Sirena up to no good? Adding to her stress are her mother's recurring fight with cancer and her friend Miriam's suspicions about her own husband, not to mention her long-time nemesis Trevelle Doval, the fallen from grace former television evangelist.

In UN-NAPPILY IN LOVE, Trisha R. Thomas shines a light on the concerns of a host of working mothers who are managing the lion's share of the day-to-day activities of their families—managing school drop-offs and pick-ups, getting roped into volunteering for their children's extracurricular activities, supporting a friend in crisis, dealing with family illnesses—while trying to maintain a business persona away from home. Venus does so with a wry touch of humor and a scathing yet lighthearted introspective which makes the story fun.

Author Trisha Thomas has a particular knack for keeping the story rapid paced yet meaningful, with unexpected plot points that in retrospect are absolutely critical to adding story depth. UN-NAPPILY IN LOVE is the fifth book in this series. Each one adds a layer of delight to this literary cake.
