#BookReview: Where Did We Go Wrong Again by Monica Mathis-Stowe

The ladies of Where Did We Go Wrong are back and they're still a hot mess.  When last we left the ladies, Gabby's husband had just died, Maxine's husband was living in a halfway house after beating her within an inch of her life, and Joy's husband was determined to kill her to keep her away from her ex-boyfriend, who happened to be the father of the twins she was carrying.  All caught up? Good.

One would think that after escaping a life threatening situation, Gabby would finally get herself together.  There's no chance of that happening and she's just as conniving in this book as she was in the first.  And just like in the first book, I was left wondering why Maxine and Joy continued to be her friend.

Maxine still walks around living in her own fantasy world.  That can be the only explanation for resuming a dead relationship and going against everyone around her.  Her lack of common sense and her need to always have a man once again prove to be detrimental. 

Of the three friends, Joy has always seemed to have the most going for her.  She messed that up by letting her mother get in her head.  Even with her roadblock to happiness removed, she doesn't have enough sense to get to happy and, instead, seems to find ways to sabotage herself at every turn.

This was a very quick read.  There's nothing deep about it and probably no lessons to be learned, but it was an easy read and just the kind of thing to read when you have a few hours to waste.
