The book was marvelously written, though, I was a little disappointed with how the book ended. It was a good listen though.
I enjoyed this book. I gave it a 4 star (would really give it a 4 1/2 star if I could) because I needed a bit more closure with the ending. I will definitely read more books by Mary Monroe. Loved the narrator.
You reap what you sow! Enjoyed the book Mary takes us there with her.
I love Mary Monroe's books and this doesn't disappoint! Always plot twists, so real, so entertaining, so gripping! Always touches my soul...I always hate for the book to end
Maggie is a woman that would go to great lengths to get what she wants. I mean, she willingly married a gay man, so she could be married. Maggie even went to find a man who looked like her husband so she could get pregnant, and so that the child would pass as theirs. #Book22of2021 #bookworm #whatsnext
What an amazing story! I couldn’t stop listening. Cultural. Mysterious. Surprising! What a character is Maggie, the multifaceted.
loved this book...loved the ending
Every author has a story to tell, but it may not be for everyone to read. There was no redemption in this story. Sad upon sad. Not for me or readers who may struggle with hopeless plots. The narrator was fabulous tho
Crazy but good. Karma. I enjoyed it
Highly enjoyable and subtly educational on a different time and race. Great what will happen ending.
I did not want the story to stop. The narrator was stellar. I will listen to this book again
Wow! Totally unexpected ending...great narrator...could barely wait to get to the end
This is a book with twists. Loved that I felt like I was there.
This book was a different read. I could easier understand the thought process but cannot justify action. It wasn’t a joyful read but it it was a good story.
A delightful and amusing book. I loved it!
Loved the suspense and creativity of this writing. The historical racism and homophonic ignorance and those struggles is woven throughout the story.
Unexpected twists and turns that kept you wanting to continue listening! Really enjoyed the strength of the narrator. This was my first Mary M book, will def listen to another.
I couldn’t help but listen :-) right from the beginning the story just grabbed me. Narrated beautifully!
Very much like Ms Monroe; a great book. however not the ending I expected.
I have not read one of Mary Monroe’s books in awhile, so I forgot how much I enjoy her writing. This one did not disappoint, enjoyable from start to finish. Highly recommend!
Really enjoyed this book.
Obviously, I had heard of Mary Monroe, but I had never read any of her books. Well, after listening to Mrs. Wiggins, I will be reading all of her books. This story was insane. We follow the story of Maggie and Hubert Wiggins, starting with their wedding day. Maggie had been molested and raped as a young girl, so she had no interest in sex. Hubert had a secret that really couldn’t come out in 1917, so Maggie was the perfect wife for him. Life goes pretty good until their son Claude is in his early 20’s. Then problems start cropping up and Maggie is a problem solver. While I would never actually do any of the things that Maggie had done, I still liked her. I could really empathize with her. The author really gave us a sense of small town life in Alabama during the Jim Crow era. Great descriptions. The narrator was phenomenal. Her voice really added to the story. The only thing that I will caution readers about that there are several mentions of suicide so if that is a trigger, be aware. Thank you to Netgalley and RB Media for the ARC.
