The Secrets Of Newberry: Review & Giveaway

About The Book:

For Ivory Bones Arcineaux and Julian Bynote, life in 1950s New Orleans couldn't be sweeter. Friends since they met in an illegal gambling house in Newberry, Louisiana, they have their pick of all the fine women, good food, and hot nights they can handle. They seem to have it made-especially Julian who begins to make a new life for himself after meeting the beautiful, classy Magnolia Garbo at a social. But both men are about to find out that letting the good times roll can be deadly when a simple robbery goes wrong and Julian witnesses Bones murdering a man in cold blood.



About The Author:


Essence bestselling author Victor McGlothin is a former bank vice-president who nearly forfeited an athletic scholarship due to poor reading skills. Ultimately, he overcame that obstacle and later completed a Masters degree in Human Relations & Business. Victor is also an on-line columnist of Victor Said?, a real Brotha to Sistah look at relationship.

Victor lives in Dallas with his wife and two sons.


My Review:

The Secrets Of Newberry is a very good historical thriller, with a well-written storyline and lovable characters. The journey the two main characters take to maintain their loving relationship is amazing.  You will be taken back to the deep south and all the secrets that existed back in 1955 and 1971, and the impact on relationships, as a result. A delightful read that drew me in, with the beautiful descriptions and all the twists! Quite enjoyable!

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
