Publisher's Summary

National best-selling author Mary Monroe has drawn favorable comparisons to Toni Morrison and Zora Neale Hurston. In this sequel to the moving novel, God Don't Like Ugly, Annette Goode has finally found a man who loves her. But at a pre-wedding ceremony, her ugly past is revealed, and her world falls apart. When she reunites with her childhood sweetheart, it seems like everything might be fine - until her long-absent friend, who hides a deadly secret, comes back into Annette's life.

SKIP BOOK ONE

How this author had the nerve to spend the first SEVENTEEN chapters, rehashing the entire story from the first book, is a wonder. Any reader would know that the second book is supposed to be a contuation of the first;so why bother with the refresher? The main character, supposedly has become older, wiser and more self-confident. This was not the case. She's still giving the impression that she loves/forgives the old fool that abused her for most of her childhood. And, she continues to fall for weak-minded men, although she professes to have changed for the better. I like the fact that she finally became comfortable with her body. The moral of this story is that telling the truth would have saved everyone a lot of heartache. I also was disappointed with the reader, who is nowhere as good as the first narrator. At one point, she even called, RHODA, RHONDA.

undecided

good read but for this to be the second book in a series there was no reason to take almost 10 chapters going over what was in the first book. made it dry until it actually started. hope book three does not do the same

Great read!

I wish so much time wasn't spent on familiarizing the reader on the first book. other than that, I loved it!

Skipped Book 1 per the suggestions

I skipped book 1 as suggested and I felt like I was still right on track. There was some mispronounced words, like Rhoda being called Rhonda a number of times... and some editing mishaps, but not enough to irritate me enough to make me stop listening. I am about to read up on the next book now to see if I should continue with the series or just leave well enough alone.

overall- it kept my interest and if I choose not to go to the next book I am comfortable with how this one ended.

Narrator

The narrator is horrible. Her monotone flat voice makes you cringe. The story itself was good, but the way it was told was just not good at all.

I listened to both books

I listen to both God Don't Like Ugly and God Still Don't Like Ugly. I couldn't stop listening to this intriguing story. I am so glad that there was a happy ending for Annette and Madear. I was so entrenched in her life that I felt her emotions.

Loved it!

I loved this book just as much as I did the first one. The only complaint that I have is that too much time was spent going over the first book.

Best sequel ever

I read the first book and felt there were a lot of unanswered questions. this sequel answered those questions! I actually like this one more than the first book, but they're both good reads.

Well now.....

I skipped listening to the first book because of the reviews in hopes of avoiding the feeling of rereading the first book in the series.

Other comments stated the book would get good after the several chapters but nawl.....

I’ve purchased more than a few Mary Monroe books but I’m thinking this will be the last.

Intense, Funny, Exciting, Frustrating, Sad, Exhale

Don't really know what to say without giving it all away! Guess I will just say, so well worth the read or listen to.
