Review of the book ''The Secrets of Newberry'' and Giveaway.

This Giveaway is Closed

Hello and good morning,

I've read a new book just 2 weeks ago and finished it about 4-5 days ago.
And now I'll be telling you about it,

The title is The Secrets of Newberry.

Here is the Synopsis.

For Ivory Bones Arcineaux and Hampton Bynote, life in 1950s New Orleans couldn't be sweeter. Friends since they met in an illegal gambling house in Newberry, Louisiana, they have their pick of all the fine women, good food, and hot nights they can handle. They seem to have it made-especially Julian who begins to make a new life for himself after meeting the beautiful, classy Magnolia Garbo at a social. But both men are about to find out that letting the good times roll can be deadly when a simple robbery goes wrong and Julian witnesses Bones murdering a man in cold blood. The victim was a white city councilman with all the right connections-and if the two are discovered, it will mean the end to everything they've built together. With the New Orleans police hot on their trail, Julian must decide whether rolling in the fast lane is worth losing his freedom and his life.

And now I'll tell you my take on the story.

As you read, the story takes place in Newberry ,Louisianna.
The 2 main character of this sotry in the beginning are, Bones Arcineaux and Hampton Bynote.
They meet at an illegal gambling  house in Newberry,
They become friends and partners in crimes.  They will have all the best womens and the best food, but that won't last long because on  one night when they will commit a robbery , something will turn awfully wrong and Bones will commit a murder.
So the two will be running from the cops. 
But in the mean time ,Hampton meets a lovely and classic girl named Magnolia Holiday with
whom he falls in love.  But then trouble is about to start falling on Hampton and bad trouble.
Will he be able to keep his Magnolia through it all?
This book is a real page turner till the end, where you get a great ending, it's a real surprise.
You know when you'll get to 2/3 of the book, you won't believe what you're reading, and 
you won't want to put the book down. I know it was late in the night and I just kept on reading till 2 am.
I had to know what happened before I could put the book down. And then I put it down until it was all right and could wait till the nest day to get onto the ends to finally know what would happen.

It really shows you how people believed hard in family values back on the sugar cane plantation
in 1955 in New Orleans.  Family and love was stronger then anything else. That is what you will learn
in this book, family, love, tradition and values are stronger then police, and bad friends and money.

I,m really certain you will enjoy this book, it's filled with action, love, romance, and a man who fights for what he truly believes in. And that is what I enjoyed the most, family, principles, values and courage.  You will see all of that in Hampton Bynote.
