This is my first book by Tracy Brown. I joined the "We Love to Read Book Club" on Facebook. They are reading Aftermath by Tracy Brown this month. I wanted to buy it, but then realized Snapped was the first book, so I bought both of them.

I am so glad that I was led to this book! Tracy Brown really did a great job building the characters and really giving them personality. There were quite a few characters and I was worried that I would get confused, but I didn't. You really have to pay attention...more

In the Balance,

Camille is living a charmed life. Even in a bad economy, Camille remains pampered and comfortable in her role as a housewife. Now a year older, Camille is ready to start a family. It seems the more she tries to make a family, the less time Frankie, her husband, is spending at home. Her girls start hinting that Camille may not be as happy as she thinks she is. The more she tries to ignore them, the more her insecurities rise as her husband seems to be spending more and more time w...more
Hoped for More,

Four friends gathering weekly over drinks and dinner form the backdrop to the latest novel by Tracy Brown. These women develop a strong bond of friendship as they discuss life and their issues, mostly stemming from the men in their lives or lack of.

Camille has the life some women wish for. The wife of Frankie B, a well known and respected hustler, she wants for nothing. Her days are spent looking good, pampering herself and being the perfect wife. But while Camille is busy taking...more

This book was a thrill ride from word go! I enjoyed it more than most of the books I have read. Although the copy that I got from the library was in poor condition and the smell made me wanna puke.

The characters were written in a way that you can understand almost instantly. Everyone knows a Toya, everyone knows a Misa. I loved it. Found myself entrenched in their lives feeling the ups and downs just as if I was part of the group.

I knew I had to read the sequel the minute I started reading thi...more
This wasn't my favorite book by Tracy Brown. Mainly because I found Frankie to be a complete and total jerk! And it would be an understatement to say I hated Gillian. Ugh! (view spoiler)I'm going to read Aftermath and hopefully I'll like that one better!
Okay it got better but still NOT one of my favorites.....
Umm, so read this book because I have heard wonderful things about Tracy Brown--'White Lines' in particular but couldnt find that so decided to try out this two-part Snapped series, and liked it---didnt love it..So this story reminds me so much of The Cartel by Ashley and JaQuavis (see review) as it follows an impossibly attractive and powerful drug family and its impact on the four women of the novel. The Nobles family just isnt as cool as the Diamond family from the Cartel and the characters o...more

Tracy Brown is one of the reasons I still read street-lit/urban fiction. Where so many authors just don't have "it" - Brown does. She can turn a story into something that you just don't want to put down.
I was hooked from page one and I liked the ending. I thought it would be different.....but I liked the ending as is.
There are a few unanswered questions and that's something I don't like. What happened with Octavia? What was up with Dominque and her father? Even if there is a sequel (and I thin...more
The book is good, a little repetitive and a few chapters bore you. Some characters distraught you for example, Camille, shes so absurd chasing Frankie and making imaginations that "he loves her" and that their marriage is perfect. When clearly he's in love with Gillian. Towards the end of the book it gets really good. A lot of events happen all at once, each character has something crazy going on in their life. I immediately started reading Aftermath (pt.2) as soon as I was finished with Snapped...more
So, the story doesn't end & after reading 361 pages in 2 days, I'm a bit ticked off about that. The story is interesting nonetheless, I found the novel to be far more "realistic" than most urban lit novels - I'm sure the avid readers of street/urban lit can tell you that. This novel was a pleasure to read, like all of Brown's novels. I guess there's a part two & I definitely cannot wait for that book because I really want to know how Brown ends the narratives of the 4 women characters.
This is my third Tracy Brown book and I must say I'm still a fan. Although White Lines was my favorite (also read Twisted) this was a close second. I was however disappointed in the ending. I want to know what happened to the other characters now not have to read another book to know.
It is 2:48 am, and I am mad at Tracy Brown. I couldn't even wait until tomorrow to finish this durn book cause it was durn good to me. But it left too many unanswered questions. If she don't hurry up and finish the sequel that had better be coming soon, I'm gonna lose it. That is all.
Interesting! It is different from what I normally read, but that's what I wanted! I can't wait to read the next one in the series! Personally, I could see this being a GREAT movie!

This book is really interesting. It starts off kind of slow, but then gradually picks up. It honestly had me feeling distraught to be in the main characters position.
I loved this book, it was the first book I've read by Tracy Brown. I was very disappointed in the ending, there has to be a sequel.
Th ebook is interesting.. As i continue reading it the less time i take to read it.. I dont want the book to end(( Love it
I love reading Tracy Brown novels. Once I finished Snapped I had to go out and get Aftermath. And loved both books
Jason Reeves
Another fantastic book, wild material from front to back.
I am a great lover of contemporary fiction featuring modern Millies jiggling careers, love lives and family and as a Black lady I always seek out stories about women of African descent whether they are based in the UK, Canada or the US. The last one I read was The Accidental Diva by Tia Williams which was a few years ago. While I was getting my flight from Atlanta to New York I came across Snapped by Tracy Brown in the bookstore. I have never heard of the author but a quick read of the synopsis...more
This is the fourth Tracy Brown book I’ve read, and it is once again another good read. Snapped tells the stories of four women--Camille, Misa, Toya, and Dominique--and their struggles. Camille is the wife of Frankie Bingham, and takes great pride in it. She could never picture herself going separate ways without Frankie. She gives off the impression to her friends that her marriage is happy and successful, when in all actuality, it is anything but that. Camille tries to ignore the fact that the...more
I was literally depressed when I finished this & the sequel "Aftermath" Great job as always to Tracy Brown. One of the best books I've read

This was the first book I read from Tracy brown and I was not disappointed. I cannot wait to read this sequel!!
Josephine Pompey
This book was OK, but I wasn't too thrilled about the way it ended. For me, it was a bit predictable, however, I think that a lot of us can relate to some of the friends that the main character of the book, Camille, had. Camille to me, appeared to be a good woman, however, she refused to read all of the signs, and confront her husband about things that were happeneing right in front of her, for fear of losing him. Maybe she lacked self-confidence - who knows. This book was yet another story abou...more
I felt like this book was very basic. I read this book through audiobook and the narrator was not very good in my opinion. She stumbled a lot on her words and I have noticed that narrators can make or break a story. I will see that the person that snapped is not who I thought would be the one to snap. I wanted more action and storyline to this novel and just did not get it.

This is the type of book that you can't put down. Looking forward to reading Aftermath.
"Brown makes these desperate women amazingly sympathetic even as they make foolish choices, and the same goes for Frankie B., despite his appalling mistreatment of Camille. It all adds up to some seriously twisted problems leading to some cliffhanging shockeroos that undoubtedly mean a sequel is on its way." � Publishers Weekly

1st read by Brown and this is one drama filled ride that ends with more drama than it began. Drama in an ultra urban setting that puts one in with various portions of a ghetto fab lifestyle. It a mix with 'Waiting to Exhale' and 'Romeo Must Die'. Camille, Misa, Dominique, and Toya have lives like no other. If Drama is your thing then you will most certainly love this read.

Book 2 will be a must read to see how things unfold.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was a serious page turner. Tracy Brown does an excellent job of weaving a tale of scandal and suspense that made me want to keep reading. The book begins with a crime scene. You already know that one of the characters has killed someone. As you read about what Camille, Misa, Dominique, and Toya are going through. Anyone of them could be the murderer. I already ordered Aftermath, which is the sequel.
Linda Boyd
This was my first Tracy Brown book. I enjoyed reading about Camille, Misa, Toya and Dominique and the craziness that is their life. I was not happy at the ending though, the author really leaves you hanging and wanting more, so of course I immediately went to my library account to check out Aftermath which is book 2 in this series to find out what happens with these ladies.
i liked it but didn't like it. I found that somethings are just too repetitive and predictable. However, somehow I was still entertained.....not sure how that works *shrug* nonetheless I guess I will read the next installment.
