downloadCarol, a nanny, witnesses a broken family who treat each other poorly. This nanny sees how Shannon is verbally abusive to her husband, child, and even herself.

In the midst of the verbal abuse, Sharon and her rich husband, Connor, are going through a very tough divorce that puts both their daughter, Cindy, and Carol in the middle of it all.


I am going to start off my saying that this was not a book for me. It is extremely hard for me to pinpoint a positive aspect of this book. The writing was flat, dry, and very tedious to read. When the characters spoke, the dialogue seemed forced and had an ‘I know better than you’ tone. All the characters were one-dimensional and not likable.

As far as the plot is concerned, it was scattered, repetitive, and hard to get through all the way to the end. This was one of those books that I had to continually stop and either read a good book or do something else in between chapters. Not be to disrespectful because writing a book is a challenge, but I was cringing for most of the read, which I hardly do. What didn’t help the situation is the amount of profanity used in this read. A couple of inappropriate words here and there is one thing, but multiple uses of vulgar words is too much. It makes me lose respect of the text since the vocabulary is of low quality.

Throughout the book, there were grammatical and punctuational errors, which could have easily been fixed. Even the word, ‘Jezabel’ from the title is misspelled within the first page of this text. Speaking of the title, the reference to ‘Judas’ was briefly stated, but ‘Jezabel’ wasn’t clearly mentioned. The author might want to explain the title a bit more.

Honestly, if I wasn’t reading this book for the Blogger Reviewer Program, I would have given up on it within the first couple of chapters.

With what was mentioned above, I cannot honestly say that I would recommend this book to anyone.

I received this eBook from OnlineBookClub in exchange for an honest review.
