Monica's apartment: Henna knew that was the best place to rest and heal her heart. She and Monica Cole had been roommates in college, inseparable, BFFs. Their friendship had continued into their thirties, and a trip to Atlanta was just what Henna needed. She'd feel better, away from New York.
While she loved having Henna in town, Monica was busy with her own life. Her younger brother, Craig, was living in Atlanta and she was helping him start a club, holding down a job, trying to get loans for Craig, and she was also planning her wedding to Julian, an older man who could make a mean pecan pie.
Monica did not need any more drama.
So when she caught Henna and Craig together in the guest bedroom, Monica tried to stop their little romance. She knew things about Craig that he'd never tell Henna, and vice versa. Monica figured that Henna didn't need a younger, immature man, with her career basically on hold, and Craig didn't need an older diva in his life.
But she didn't figure that sticking your nose in your friend's business was a two-way street...
"Three Chords and The Truth" isn't bad.
It isn't great, either.
Author Cas Sigers created a well-rounded cast of characters that are relatively likeable. There are no terrible people here, nobody you love to hate, and everyone has reason to do what they do, right or wrong. They're realistically flawed, which I liked.
The problem is that there's too much in this book: too much detail, too much back-and-forth, and there are too many continuity errors. That can lead to confusion and a sometimes tiresome mess, one that often made me sigh heavily.
Overall, if you're looking for a slick, tight novel, this isn't it. But if you want a decent enough romance with decent enough characters doing occasionally indecent things, you'll find "Three Chords and The Truth" right in the middle.
