REVIEWS: Mistress No More

Publishers WeeklyIn this dramatic story of friendship and betrayal, three wives cope with the fallout from a letter their ex-friend, Jessa
Bell, sent in Message from a Mistress, boasting that she was having an affair with one of the husbands. Unsure of their men, the three women let their marriages crumble, but eventually have to realize that the problem isn’t Jessa’s malice but their own insecurity. After the guilty husband is identified, Jessa plots to further destroy her former friends by revealing all their secrets, while they band together to rebuild their lives. Though much of the tale is as heavy-handed as naming the villain “Jezebel,” Bryant’s loyal audience will love the generous doses of passionate sex, glamour, and revenge. (June)–Pubisher’s Weekly

Bryant knows how to hook readers from the first line dangled into messy waters of betrayal, seduction, disappointment and falls from grace. Stinging dialogue, first-person revelations, remarkable character development and fast-paced drama heighten the thrill factor of MISTRESS NO MORE. When Jessa Bell doesn’t get the engagement ring she’s promised, she taunts her boyfriend’s wife with a cryptic text message. Problem is, she sends the same message to three women, all supposedly her close friends. This is definitely another fantastic, titillating novel by Bryant. –RT Book Reviews
