DWED Reviews Miss Scandalous by Nicole Dunlap

Rating: ***** 5 stars

While I did not get to read book 1 Miss Nobody in the Shaw family series, I did love Miss Scandalous. I can honestly say that even if you do not get to read the first book, it is all neatly wrapped in pretty pink foil paper in Book 2. Nicole has made it very easy to understand the progression of storyline and characters into this new installment of the Shaw Family Series.

It wasn’t hard to grasp the oil & vinegar relationship b

When I read Miss Nobody, the first book in the Shaw Family Saga, by author Nicole Dunlap, I was not prepared for the ending. It shocked me. One of the protagonists was left alone with an unborn child that had not yet entered into the world. She was hit with the reality that the faith she had placed in one man had been quickly shattered by envy and hate.

The lives of these two young people, twisted and tainted with lies, were clothed in incest––but did the falsehood have validity? A curve ball m

Miss Scandalous: Miss Scandalous Shaw Family Saga, Book 2
By Nicole Dunlap

This is the story of three Shaw women, Annette, Charlene and Raven. Grandmother, Mother and Daughter. It tells of the relationship between the three women. Filled with emotion and secrets, secrets & more secrets.

Miss Scandalous is a great read with true to life conflict and love between mother & daughter. Fast paced page turner. I could not put it down.

I probably should have read book one first, but I have no prob

Nicole Dunlap, excellent job. 'Miss Scandalous' is brimming with anger, deceit and emotionally damaged people who are full of fear and uncertainty. Taking this journey, you will see that each character has the opportunity to learn from past mistakes and the struggle it takes to make the right decision in the end, knowing that if you allow fear to rule your life you can never move forward.

Miss Scandalous has many twists and turns, which kept me hooked from page one. Raven is so deliciously vindictive but vulnerable, as she strives to be the mother to her child that her mother wasn't to her. Dunlap beautifully paints the pain of a daughter's rejection and the fall-out for all that it causes. The story she tells is dramatic but real and never overly melodramatic. The book is lengthy but worth the read.

Buy the book and read it for yourself. This is the kind of stuff movies and miniseries are made of. I am just not happy to have to wait for the next book in the series. I had no problem keeping up with each frustrated character. I received a call from North Carolina, because I was so caught up in the story line I didn't answer because for a minute I thought it was Jon, lol!

Another great read in the Shaw Family Saga! This book answers questions from book one. There's drama, mystery, romance and mental issues. Miss Scandalous is definitely a page turner & I can't wait to read book 3 this summer/fall.

Raven found her mom after a lifetime of rumors, taunting and wondering who Charlene Shaw really was. The reunion wasn't all that she'd hoped for. It seems as though no one is truly who you think they are in this story ... until you keep reading. Everyone has a skeleton or two in their closet. I love how Dunlap sprinkles in the surprise plot twists gradually. Even the grandmother has a dark secret. In was heavily guarded in book 1, but now she sees how it is tearing her family apart, and she's re ...more

First Miss Nobody took me for a ride of hope, sadness and mischief. Next, Miss Scandalous evokes the passion of forbidden love, deception and the yearning to do better. Raven is constantly at battle with her mind and her heart. Wanting the best for her daughter, Royeal, all the while plotting against the man who helped bring her life to fruition.

The exotic, well rounded and established Jon, Raven’s Love, is who she desires but at what cost? Choosing Love or Revenge is her plight and living with

I just love when you finish the second book in a series, and it's just as good as the first. That's the case with Miss Scandalous. Raven and Charlene are back again, with more drama and heartache. This book sucks you in from the beginning, and once again I couldn't put it down. I love how Nicole's writing and characters are so real. You feel a wide range of emotions when reading about their life, and wonder if things will ever be "normal" for them, after a

Miss Scandalous" is an emotional ride with so much drama & pain; happiness is short-lived, sadness is almost a daily promise. I initially felt sorry for Raven, but empathy towards her is gone. She has got me so angry with her nonsense. I want her to be happy, yet all she craves is a pity party. Charlene & Annette have come a long way in their relationship, Raven needs to catch up.

I needed to rant a bit about this emotional read. Nicole cooked up another superb read! The Shaw family seri

You will love this story! The follow-up to Miss Nobody; this book picks up about 4 years later. We get to see read the outcome of what happens to Charlene, Jon, and of course Raven.

I gave it a 4 out of 5 mainly because I found some of the story repeated over and over. I found myself skipping pages when Raven went into her rants. The characters come off the pages and you feel like your in the room with them as there sharing there souls with each other.

"Book Two" to the Shaw Family Saga has been my favorite. Dunlap does an awesome job in Book 1 with setting up the story line. This author did a great job in creating an interesting, juicy, and drama filled story that kept me wanting more and more. The book also made me laugh out loud several times. The story was so suspenseful and I just cannot believe the ending!!!! Not to give too much's a must read and I HIGHLY recommend this book!!!
Jennifer (Bad Bird Reads)
Nicole Dunlap has a knack for creating characters that leave an impression. I really liked the next installment of this saga. The Shaw women still make me cry, laugh, and gasp out loud as they get themselves into trouble over and over again but still have the capacity to love with all their hearts. I really had fun reading Miss Scandalous, and I can't wait to read what Dunlap has in store for us next.

I think that I enjoyed this more than Miss Nobody. I'm glad that I finally got hip to Nicole Dunlap. You are a very talented writer. You could give The Young & The Restless some ideas! On to book Three!

I'm so pleased this lived up to the brilliance of book one. Once again Nicole Dunlap packed a lot into her story. Deceit, romance, suspense and lots and lots of Shaw women. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a great dramatic romance.
