What Goes Around by Rachel Ellyn
About The Book
What Goes Around is a little bit thriller, a little bit witchy, a little bit romance, and a whole lot of sass.
Alice has been playing the perfect Southern wife for over twenty-five years. So when Bob dumps her for some blonde bimbo twenty years her junior, Alice figures she’s entitled to every dollar she can bleed from him. And, once she’s got the money, she’s entitled to use it on a much-needed vacation to Nanm Paradi, a Caribbean resort that sells itself as her “soul’s paradise”.
She’s never experienced anything as luxurious as Nanm Paradi. The staff know her every desire and cater to her every need before she even knows she needs it. She figures this is how the really rich live and she’s ready to take advantage of all of it–the fabulous drinks, the beautiful views, and the handsome men. And when she discovers that voodoo magic is also on offer… well, Bob hurt her bad. She can take some time away from paradise to exact a little pain. Alice would have been happy to leave things at that.
But when she gets hit where it hurts–her bank account–Alice’s game changes. It’s no longer about post-divorce romance. Now it’s about revenge.
After 25 years of marriage and your husband asks for a divorce? The least you can have is an amazing holiday and a little bit of revenge, of course!
This is a quite interesting book, twisted and with a special magic on it; because if you don’t believe in voodoo, you’ll believe soon…
I’ll have to admit that you can totally understand Alice situation, after having the divorce she decides to enjoy some holidays in the paradise, the Nanm Paradi, where everything is perfect, so perfect that it seems magic! So magic that Alice soon discovers what does it mean to practice Voodoo, a dark magic but really a dangerous one!
I really enjoyed this read, the writer has done an amazing job to describe the paradise and Alice feelings, you can totally understand her anger and desire of revenge, I think that everyone in her situation would feel the same. It doesn’t have to be easy to accept the divorce after a long marriage and being replaced for a “young” woman, but with someone like that, she deserves some peace, don’t you think?
If you are looking for a black humour story, with a beautiful landscape and some very interesting characters this one is your next book, really, What Goes Around is a quick read and delicious! Ready?
