The Second House from the Corner by Sadeqa Johnson is a woman whining about her life (the complaining never stops). Felicia Lyons is an actress turned stay-at-home mom in New Jersey. She has three children under the age of four and a husband who is rarely home (as well as sexist, lazy, has a temper, and keeps her on a tight leash). Then one day she gets a call from her past. A past that Preston, her husband, knows nothing about. This call (really the man behind the call) has the power to ruin her life (if she lets it). Will Felicia make the right choices?
I did not enjoy reading The Second House from the Corner. I had a hard time getting through Felicia’s whining (about her kids, her husband, housework, etc.). Felicia is an extremely unpleasant character. The Second House from the Corner contained foul language (too much of it) and sex (explicit). It also had an extremely odd ending. I give The Second House from the Corner 1 out of 5 stars. I just found the book to be unenjoyable, and I really had to force myself to finish it (not a good thing).
I received a complimentary copy of The Second House from the Corner from NetGalley in exchange for an honest evaluation of the novel.
I am off to read and get ready to watch Sleepy Hollow and Grimm. I hope everyone has a nice, relaxing evening. Take care and Happy Reading!
