"Daddy Issues" by Ms. T Nicole


My Thoughts....

Wow! This was one very emotional read that is in cased with a lots of drama. I don't know where to start without giving too much of the story I will try to keep this short ha ha and in the end have the readers wanting to read this wonderful well written novel. This was such a dysfunctional Walker family that this story had me shaking my head and saying many times.... oh my that didn't happen! What had happened in or to this Walker family? There were three beautiful daughters in this family but what had happened had only involved two of the sisters. The story will have the reader thinking why would a mother allow this to happen. By just putting 'her head down and walking away' would never be enough for any real mother. Surely this mother must have known what was happening to her two older daughters? Oh, I will stop here and say you will have to read "Daddy Issues" for yourself to see how well this author brings it all out so well in her presentation of telling this story.

As you read though this story one can see that there was something going on way underneath the surface of this horrible story. The reader can also see that the two daughters really had some emotional problems from what had happened to them as a child that will go into their adult life. When it is all said and done I had a hard time reading some of the story that was left feeling the hurt that would come out of this horrible story. I really felt so sorry not only Sydney, Venetta but especially for Baby Doll [the youngest... Trinity.] Now why was that? Well, Baby Doll was the baby of the family and it seems like secrets had be kept from her but believe me when I say keep reading for they all will come out. All I was left saying 'oh my goodness.' After the death what all will happen for this family? I loved how this author brings out each of the daughter's story in end and what a story the reader will receive from this novel ... definitely not a predictable read.

The story has some real interesting characters that are well developed, portrayed, defined and oh so believable giving the reader a story about this Walker family, their boyfriends & husbands [Trey, Shawn, T.K Antwon, & Cam] some friends of the daughters [Chloe, Denicia & Tex] to only name a few that will keep you reading to see what will happen next. I liked how this author outlined all of her characters at the beginning of each chapter so the reader knew who was mainly being featured at that time for each chapter.


When it is all say and done I like how the reader gets a conclusion of how the story ended for the three daughters and oh yes that mom too. Will there ever be 'trust' and forgiveness? I was very satisfied with the read and could understand the reasoning behind how each daughter felt in the end. No, some reads will not be a 'HEA.' Why is that? Well, it's about real life, how we want to handle it and I could see why there wasn't any forgiveness for some. What a interesting read about the life of this Walker Family as the reader will find out what did go so wrong behind closed doors.
Would I recommend? YES!
