Virtual Book Tour - Easter's Lilly

Author: Judy Serrano
Publisher: Black Rose Writing

It was Easter Sunday; the day Lilly's life went from safe and comfortable to dangerously unfamiliar. Her transformation takes her from a small town girl having an affair with a low ranked gangster in the Montiago crime syndicate, to a woman of grace and fortitude married to the head of the organization.

Easter's Lilly is an inspired journey from the idyllic to the darker side of self-discovery. Read as the over-privileged brothers embark on their journey that twists and turns down the road of unbridled passion in this first book of the series.

Easter's Lilly by Judy Serrano follows Lilly through an interesting life journey. An affair with a drug dealer leads her into a life of danger and darkness. She also finds love and in a twisted way, family. What I liked about this book is the concept. I think the idea for the story was really good and had great potential. I did like the characters in the book. They are pretty well written. Lilly is grows up a lot in the book and I had a lot of sympathy for her situation.

What I didn't like about the book is the amount of stuff that is packed into it. It was filled with so many twists and turns that seem to come out of nowhere. The pacing of the book didn't work well for me. I feel like there was a lot that could have been cut out of this book and the story would have still worked well. Clearly this is not a stand alone novel as the book ends with a huge cliff hanger. I will probably read the next one because I want to know what happens next.
