If ever there was a
success story, one may find it in Gloria Mallette's attempt to write a
good story. Joining a growing list of successful authors who've published
their own work, Gloria Mallette brings us Shades Of Jade. It is a tale
involving the lead character's predilection for married men and her prowess
at playing the game. The plot for mayhem and mischief takes a turn for
total turmoil when Marrisa is constantly threatened with phone calls to
cease and desist. "Stay away from my man, or I will kill you!"
shouldn't be taken lightly, but a series of unflattering incidents hastens
Marrisa's dependence on Levi for help to track down her antagonist.
This is a moving and
interesting storyline in which the author uses subterfuge and sublimity,
the former in Marrisa's need for deception and the latter for the exalted
state in which she places the selfish option to date only married men.
Mallette keeps the story progressive and avoids the usual pitfalls of
predictability. The subject alone should keep interested adult readers
