Author Mi Mi came out hard with her first novel Deadly Decisions with the tale of the infamous Keisha Cones a sexy, independent, strong willed woman not willing to take mess from anyone not even her own mother. In the beginning MiMi Renee sheds some light on Keisha Cones upbringing that involves a little bit of everything. Keisha Cones is daddy's baby and loves her father to the end of the world and back. Now her mother on the other hand is a different thing; not to say she didn't love her mama

Newcomer Mimi Renee has told a compelling story. I am not used reading a story where the plot takes place in California. She does a good job at describing so I can picture as if I was there. I like the plot and there were some twists so it was not predictable. I love the way the book flowed and when I thought she made a rookie mistake and forgot to touch on something she went back to it and closed it out.

Keisha Cones has grown up in a household that might make some go insane

IN MY 'HOOD...

Keisha Cones is a pretty, smart and savvy young girl. Not only does she reside in the gang-laced area of Compton, she's knee-deep in the life.

With a mother that could care less and a father lost in alcohol to exist, Keisha's confidants Niya, Yona and Poo-Baby become her clutch. It's not until tragedy strikes that their loyalties are tested. What was once a united group of girls is torn apart by jealousy, drama and honor on their words.

West Coast Author Mimi Renee has taken a sound

This was an amazing book. It truly took me on a roller coaster of emotions. Keisha was such a stand out character and from chapter to chapter I either loved or hated her. I loved the telling of her background. It explained a lot of things that she would grow up to do. Throughout the book I kept screaming to myself "SHE IS JUST LIKE HER MOTHER". Yet, she couldn't see that and held out to all that hatred. The same way her mom treated her father, she treated Cameron. I couldn't understand why she c ...more

Deadly Decisions was a great book. I enjoyed the book from the very beginning to the end. Deadly Decisions was full of action and kept me on the edge of my seat. It was interesting watching the main character, Keisha grow throughout the book. I thought she could have made better decisions but she was young and like they say "you live and you learn". Mimi Renee did well with the story line and kept my attention. I must say I was very upset with the ending, I didn't expect the book to end the way ...more

While this book was definitely a page-turner, I think it was a tad bit too long. As I was consiering the length of this book, I tried to think of parts that could have been taken out, but I couldn't think of too many. I also wished the chapters were shorter. It took me quite some time read this book and I know with shorter chapters, people read faster. Other than a few grammatical errors here & there, this book was well written and you never know what's going to happen next. There is also a ...more

The book, Deadly Decisions by Mimi Renee, is OK!!! The main character, Keisha, is grieving the lost of her father and making bad decisions. The story has some very good areas; however, some areas seem to drag out. Often, I found myself anticipating the story to move along. The book is recommended! Enjoy!

Meet Keisha a go getter who stops at nothing to get what she wants and she gets it by any mean necessary. I'm so glad I stuck with this book just when I was going to put it down it all the action started and I loved every bit off it.This is a 5 star banger and it is a must read!!!!! Cant wait for part 2 next month.

Pops wasting his bro, then turning the gun on himself, that was heavy. The love triangle between Keisha, Lil' Boo and Cameron started to do my head in a little by the end. I was hoping Cameron would waste Lil' Boo when he had the chance. That would have been good, history repeating itself. Overall a good read.

Good read

It started off good and only got better. I didn't care for most of the decisions Keisha made but we reap what we sow. Her first love was a loser that didn't want a real relationship with her but didn't want anybody else to have her. Interesting and intriguing, I will check out part two

I enjoyed the book. It reminded me of the Coldest Winter Ever by Sister Souljah. Every character was well developed. Keshia was young and made decisions based on her enivornment and experience. The story was full of action and drama. I will be checking out part 2 to see if Keshia can pull it together.

Good read ,and the fact that it takes place in Cali made it stand out from the usual ..I only wish the author would have used more details and dialog instead of all the narrative ..I didn't connect with the characters ,but overall good story

Keisha is the beast of the West Coast. After you finish Deadly Decisions you will be hungary for more and this book leaves you talking with your Sister/Girls about Keisha and her crew.. Great book!

Deadly Decisions by Mimi Renee was just ok to me. The main character Keisha is grieving the lost of her father and making bad decisions. The story line is good: however the story seems to drag out.
